I've been considering a Yamaha...
What do people say about them?
With such a limted budget - of course the fact of the matter is I'll be choosing live and on the basis of what feels and sounds good.
I've played a few of the Yamaha Grand Concert (GC) series. Namely the GC12, GC22, GC32. They are great guitars in their own right and are quite consistent and are good value for the money. It all really depends on if they have the sound you are looking for or not. In terms of the lower end CG range, they are decent budget guitars but I'd personally look elsewhere at that price range.
If you'll be choosing a guitar you can play in person, then I would try to go in as blind as possible so as not to judge a guitar based on brand, price, looks, woods used, etc.
