The input may be useless now but I'm a fan of the Tanglewood acoustics, even the cheaper ones, I'd recommend looking at those to see if they fit your or any beginning guitarist's bill.

You could look into Tenor Guitars, they are a fretted four stringed Guitar with a slim neck and shorter scale. There are several tuning for them including standard guitar tuning. There is a great site to learn more if you are interested, just put in search engine.

Good luck with your decision!

I have to agree with getting a F310. My friend had one and it was so light and comfortable and the easiest acoustic I have ever played (although I had to tune it funny to play it since it was right handed). Its just so comfortable and nice I really thought it was a 500$+ guitar. Everyone at the house loves it too and most of them have been playing guitar for a very long time. I don't think its the most durable thing but if you are careful I am sure that won't be an issue.

I really do recommend the Jasmine by Takamine S34c.

There is a chance that if you order it, it won't be to your specifications...but if you get a good one (as I did) it will play like a $600 guitar. If your local music shop(s) carry this guitar, you are in for a treat.

I've not had to change the strings once, and I've had it for a year. I was going to, but it hadn't gotten to that point.

Friends of mine still demand I allow them to play this guitar, because it's body shape and overall style are so rewarding.

I would go with Taylor Big Baby. They are a little smaller than the average acoustic, but that can be a good thing. You can take it wherever you go and practice. They sound great

For beginner guitar, I would go Yamaha. You can pick one up for a few 100$ and you're good to go. My niece got one for christmas and it play very good. Not comparable to my Taylor, but still, I found it very very good!!!
