I'm a fan of Taylor Guitars personally but I would highly recommend a Martin or Collings too. I'm more of an electric player but my dad has one of each of those brands and I've played each of them... thoroughly.
I would suggest playing on each brand to see whose tone you prefer. Martin tone is a little deeper than Taylor, IMO. Collings is a good in-between and may be the best all around but play and see for yourself! Good Luck.

Good choice, I think the two best brands for acoustics would have to be Gibson or Martin. I'm not really a fan of the Taylors 'cause one time I went into an Accent Music and played one.......... IT WAS WARPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
