okay, I am looking for an acoustic-electric 12-stringer.

I would like an archtop, but those arent too versatile though are they?

Also, if and when I get an acoustic-electric, I will only use it at gigs about 1/2 the time.

So what price range, and brands should I be looking at? Taylors, Yamaha, Martin, whats a good starting point?

if you use it for gigs half the time you should go either taylor or ovations in my opinion. those two have probably the best plugged in sounds period.
