Something I often advised my students when I was teaching: hold on to your acoustic for a while - it's not as if you have no guitar at all to learn/practice on - save up a few extra bucks, and buy something that you're not going to be flipping on Craigslist same time next year. IME the $500+/- bracket is where low-end instruments begin to take a quantum leap in hardware, tone, QC, and variety (FYI there's a few nice hollowbodies and semi-hollows in this price range - I'd check some of these out as well) and really begin to come into their own - and a wisely-purchased piece could well wind up being a lifetime keeper; just be patient - when your next guitar "speaks" to you you'll know it - and you'll want the wherewithal to add it to your stash when it happens...
