That reads like you're not ready. My GAS killer was an easy decision when I found it but I spent almost 2 years trying guitars before that. If it's your last or at least one that will be around a while think of comfort. I started liking OM and 00. A hand injury and age have me glad my keeper is a short scale. Don't limit yourself to brands because so many great products are out there. The latter is also important because the feel and tone I got didn't come from a Gibson or Martin as an example of what I'm trying to say. Have fun shopping and learning!
