Another vote for Cordoba. I was recently in a similar hunt to yours (see my other posts for more detail). The guitar that finally "nailed" it for me was a Cordoba Orchestra CE. It is at the upper end of the "Fusion" line of solid top, laminated B&S models. This model is cedar over rosewood. Really couldn't afford the $800 price tag, but was able to find one in mint condition w/gig bag for just over $500.

The acoustic sound (which was my main decision point) is rich, wonderful, and clear toned with a "bell like" quality. The plugged-in sound is fine for the price point, but does require some quality "conditioning" if used for high quality recording.

Six months + into owning the Orchestra w/zero "buyers remorse." Happy hunting, and let us know where you land and what you think...
