so im looking to get an acoustic guitar, but im not exactly sure what the best options for myself are (i dont have the same knowledge for acoustics as i do with electrics).

i like classical, spanish and flamenco guitar styles i would like a guitar to give me a better tone and help me explore that style more, but i also want something that has the versatility of a normal acoustic that just has the that fat resonating sound for strummed chords.

my budget is probably up to $1000.

any ideas?

I know that Takamine has some great classical/nylon guitars, and those are perfect for your style. I might look into a Takamine 132S for mainly flamenco and spanish stuff
But for more versatility I would probably buy a Takamine EG522C
Hope I helped

well, since you're into classical, spanish, and flamenco styles, i would definately reccommend a classical guitar. highly. im not too knowledgeable on what's good and such, but really its all down to what you like, try out a bunch of guitars and find what you like, it's the best way to find the right guitar for you.

yeah that one is pretty cool. i think id prefer a single cutaway shaped guitar. i own a les paul and i find that more comfortable sitting or standing.

i would also like it to be an acousic/electric. i know u can get normal acoustics like that, but what about classical ones?

thanks for all ur help anyway guys. i think im gonna have to go down to the local music store to try out various ones, but this has given me a few ideas.

I think you want to stay away from flamenco guitars, since I doubt you know and would like how they sound.
They have a very dry sometimes painfully bright and usually loud sound, whereas classical guitar can sound clear as well as warm - whatever you want to buy there are lots of variations. A good flamenco guitar however can very likely be well over your budget.
