Well whats your price range? In general Alvarez, Seagull, Art and Lutherie, and Takamine have some good budget stuff.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.

Well you can forget about a Martin. Take a look at the Seagull S6.

Agreed. There is no Martin I would consider for under $900. Their lower-priced models are horribly overpriced. You're essentially paying over $400 for a cardboard box with their name on it.

I wouldn't necessarily jump the gun to Seagull guitars. It really depends on the size of your hands. Most of the reason I've stuck with Seagull guitars is their large nut size and comfortable neck. Technically speaking, you can get more for your money from Epiphone's Masterbilt line, Blueridge, or Silver Creek guitars. Look into those.

Bottom line, go in and play some guitars.

Also, don't jump the gun. Just because a salesman makes you a seemingly generous offer doesn't mean you should simply buy the first acoustic you like. Take your time. Write down the ones you like, come back, check on them, make an informed decision. Too many people impulse-buy on their first acoustic and wind up disappointed.

At the very least, buy a solid top acoustic. The more you play it, the better it will sound. There are many good solid top acoustics in your price range. Look into Yamaha guitars as well. They are very fine guitars, used by famous artists such as Elliott Smith. Some people avoid them due to the name (being slapped on everything from pianos to skidoos), but this is a horribly ignorant decision. Yamaha makes excellent guitars.
