acoustic guitar shopping

I’m finally in the market for my first nice acoustic guitar.  My Epiphone has done me quite well through the years, but it’s time for something with a bit more depth.  I’ve been playing guitars from Breedlove, Martin, Taylor, and more.  So far I haven’t fallen in love with the sound of anything yet.   I fell in love with the looks of the   Breedlove Voice CM (below), but unfortunately I didn’t have the sound I was looking for.

I have been writing a lot on acoustic, including experiments in alternate tuning and partial capos.  I’ve also been enjoying some casual songwriting circles where I can test out new songs in their early stages.   I’m not sure if my next record will be an acoustic one or not, but that sure seems like the way things are heading.  I’ll definitely introduce my new guitar when the time comes.
