Hey guys,

New to the forum so sorry if this is wrong. Basically I've been playing electric guitar for years. I'm off to university in the autumn, and view this is a new break - I probably won't be able to cart my guitars and amps there anyway, and would like a change and starting learning/writing on acoustic.

So I was wondering if you could suggest me one for around £150-200.

I'm a big fan of Dashboard Confessional (I realise they use expensive Gibson's though) and Death Cab for Cutie, etc.

I'd like quite a jangly tone, but with lots of sustain and body with a full sound, and good bass tones to counter the jangliness.

If you could suggest the best strings too, as I'm unfamiliar with acoustic strings.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to help a newbie!
