Okay, I have 4 guitars in mind. Which would you choose and why ? These are on sale, so I need to make a decision quick...
Note: Im 39 and just learning... but don't want to buy something that ill just want to upgrade in a year. Thanks for any advice!

( EDIT: I thought the pics would just show up... here are the guitars:
1. Takamine GN93CE G Series was $549, now $449.
2. Takamine GJ72CE G Series was $549, now $449.
3. Seagull 33430 Entourage was $499, now $419.
4. Breedlove Passport Concert was $499, now $419.

Seagull because they have a very good reputation, and some of their cedar topped ones I've tried have been terrific. They also used to have a bolt-on neck, which is a big plus for me, I don't know if they still do. Breedlove maybe if you are a fingerpcker. I don't like Taks.

i wouldn't buy any of those unless they were the only guitars i could buy. the seagull original S6, which is a great sounding guitar, is always around the price of that entourage, and i haven't found that the entourage models sound as good as the original S6 - me, i'd like a better sounding guitar with no electronics. and you can get seagulls on sale this weekend in-store at guitar center, if you live by one.

if you can only buy from your list, i'd suggest the entourage. but you can get acoustic electric yamahas that are nice for that price, too - the FGX720SCA comes to mind. and they'll be on sale in-store at guitar center for columbus day.

recording king makes some nice all-solid guitars that sound and feel good at very nice prices. behold! an all solid dread for the same price as most companies make solid tops

or they have an all solid 000 in that price range, too - i love a good 000 myself

FWIW, I would put RK, Yamaha or Eastman ahead of any of those mentioned in the OP, but I stuck with the OP list.

i don't like the lowest priced eastmans particularly - over $700 their guitars are awesome - but i didn't really like the OP's list, either.
