Essentially, I love my dreadnought, but I've been looking for something with a more refined acoustic tone as I've been doing a lot more acoustic work lately.

I have absolutely no idea about virtually anything that effects tone or anything about acoustics other than larger is louder acoustically and solid woods survive the tests of time better than laminates though, so I have no idea what I should want, so I was hoping you guys could ask me some questions to try and figure out?

are you near a guitar center? if so, check out the tone of the taylor gc8, which would be my idea of refined tone. understated, beautiful, subtle, pure.

of course, you may feel differently about the gc8 and what refined tone is.

Well, just listening to it online it sounds amazing, if it sounds like that, but more dynamic in-person I'd be sold, but I can't exactly afford $2,000 or so on a guitar right now.
