My Seagull S6 Original has served me well for 10 years or so, but I've been thinking of getting something nicer. The main problem I find with the S6 is that it's somewhat boom-y and perhaps a bit lacking in the high-end - my thumb also gets tired very quickly when playing barre chords. I've been considering guitars in the price range of perhaps a Martin D16 or 000-16 or a Taylor 3xx.
I play quite a lot of fingerpicking on acoustics, but also some strumming. As e.g. Martin has about a million different body styles, I'm not quite sure where to begin looking. I'm also open to other brands than Martin or Taylor. Anyone got suggestions on what I should try? There's a store here that sells both Taylor and Martin (as well as Takamines), another that sells Larrivee and one that sells Collings and Santa Cruz ().
