Acoustic electrics are great if you perform but apart from that theyre just added cost.
Allthough if you desperately need something with a cutaway then you will probably have to get soemthing with a pickup.

For guitars without a pickup I suggest:

As for a guitar with a pickup, i would suggest staying with Alvarez or just buying any of the above guitars and getting a soundhole pickup later on if you need one.
Someone else may be able to suggest better guitars with built in pickups.

i would not go for what the guy above me is saying... i say if your into rock, get an ovation, for your price range i would fo with the Tangent Series T35 (about 550$) my little brother has one, its great for the price...or i would save your money and get the 1778T Elite T Series (850$) i have this one and it plays like a much higher priced instrument..... or if not i would say an epi masterbuilt, or something from guild
