Hello. I need some good advice on picking out a 12 string acoustic guitar. I do not want any electric pickups. Do not want a cutaway. Im mainly torn between a Taylor or a Martin. Im open to other suggestions but I really want a high quality guitar that I know will last me for years, and have remarkable tone. Im looking to spend around 2000$ give or take.

Any suggestions?

How about Mann? I like the sound of those. Or an Ovation?

I'm pretty sure Mann will last you forever. Not sure about Ovation though.

Let me tell you about heartache and the loss of god
Wandering, wandering in hopeless night
Out here in the perimeter there are no stars

Out here we is stoned

In your price range, a used high-end Guild would get the most bang for the buck and the most durable guitar.
