im mainly an electric player, but im looking to get an acoustic, and ive been looking into this one.
http://www.ibanez.com/AcousticGuitars/model-TCY10EBK

the main things im concerned with are the durability, and the action.
i want the guitar to be able to last multiple years, and i dont want to have to kill my fingers to hit a note(thats what drove me away from my past acoustic guitars.)

no matter what kind of guitar i get, im probally gonna put lighter strings on it. (im still debating if im gonna stick with standard tuning, or if im gonna go down to drop d or c.)

soooo yeah.
has anyone played this guitar before? is it good? bad?
how would you rate the sound, durability, and playability?

EDIT: i should also add, im not really looking for a full acoustic sound. im mostly just gonna be playing to myself and no more than a few people at once, any more id plug into my amp :p

all i noticed was how crappy it sounded to me - enough so that i didn't notice the playability. tried another one months later, and it sounded just as poor to my ears.

when you say crappy, do you mean the tone? or the volume?

i'm talking about tone. have you considered something like an epiphone el00 (bigger, richer tone) or a fender hellcat (bright but clear)?

no, in all honesty, im mainly just looking for an acoustic thats comfortable for somone whose only used to electric guitars to play.
(though those both look nice)

right now ive only got a Shane targa, and i mostly play that unplugged.
i only really consider myself a novice guitar player, so im not too worried if the tone is off, since im not gonna be playing to large crowds anytime soon.

and too be more honest, im pretty clueless when it comes to guitar quality. lol.

im also trying to keep the price to under 250

EDIT: here are a couple other guitars ive been looking at.
