Westcoast Music in Kits have some great guitars with good tonewoods at very reasonable prices. "Bayou" is their house brand. I bought a sprucetop acoustic there for $250 in February and feel that it compares well to guitars in the $500 - $750 range.

good luck in your search!

Larrivee won't get that low but I would definitely recommend a Seagull S6 at that price. They are great guitars, Canadian made and a great value.

For the price, a well taken care of Seagull S6 won't let you down.

check out the Neil Douglas guitar shop in New West. I bought my classical guitar there for about 120 dollars and I still couldn't be happier with it. (even after I've gone through quite a few different electrics)

I can't recommend a specific model though since I'm not really familiar with acoustic guitars in general and especially not in that price range.

Great sugestion...for that matter you can't go wrong for any instrument in the Godin family.
