I understand there is a lot of threads on buying cheaper guitars but I actually have quite a bit of money to spend, about AU$1000 (US$672.386) in fact.

I'm looking for an acoustic, I have no brand preferences and I want it to be versatile.

aaaaaaand GO!

Cheers for the help!
get a good tanglewood. or a lower range maton.tanglewood are really good bang for buck and with that kinda dosh u cant go wrong. but make sure to test out the guitars before u make a decision.
My advice: spend 100 AU$ on the guitar.

Give the rest to your friends to tell you that you are a rock god.

Who are you to argue with your friends ?
