Which acoustic?

Hello everybody!

I am in the market for a new acoustic guitar and i really need some suggestions as to which ones i should take a look at. I dont really have a lot of knowledge on acoustic guitar so I need your guys' (and gals') help. I was sort of looking at the seagull line of guitars, more specifically the S6+ Folk model. Have any of you had experiences with these? are there any other ones i should go and try out or take a look at? My budget is around 700 CAD or so. This guitar will probably be used mainly to play youth church group kind of stuff, along whit some blues and pop/folk kind of music. Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for the responses!

I recently went through a similar search with a relatively similar price range in mind - however after much research and playing it became clear to me that for a few hundred more I could get a whole lot more guitar - and I ended up with a Larrivee D-03R. For your playing preferences their L or O bodies may be preferable. If you find a used one that would drop it into your intended price range and IMO it is in a different class from the Godin lines - while still being Canadian. Don't get me wrong - those Seagull guitars are great for the money...but the Larrivees are true high end solid wood guitars for not a lot more, as long as you don't need fancy gloss finishes, abalone inlays etc (these are also available on Larrivees but that will get you closer to the $2K range).
