My first acoustic was a jasmine by takamine beginner guitar. Although it was a good guitar to learn on, it doesn't sound very good. I'm looking to buy my second acoustic guitar. I like a nice dark mellow sound more than a bright sound. I know that i should get a solid top and a solid body as well is even better but i think it might be out of my price range. I'm hoping to get a good sounding guitar for around 500 or 600 dollars. I would like some suggestions from you guys about what some good models to look at would be that have the dark mellow tone. I am from Canada and my local store carries lots of art and luthier and seagul being Godin is a canadian company.
