Hey Ramirezmanfredo16,

This is a tough one! All of those guitars seem to be in the same class / price range.

The best thing you could do is try to test them all at a Guitar Center, because it's going to come down to which one you like best when you're playing it. (As well as the looks of it, since they all have different woods and colors.) Some guitars will feel more expensive or cheap in person, so it's not easy to know online. You could even have two of the same exact model and there will be differences in them, so it's important to play the actual guitar you're buying. These are things you'll pick up on in person by holding the guitar and testing it.

In that price range, the most important thing is finding a guitar you like the feel and look of, so you'll want to keep playing.

I have the Fender cd-60. I wish I didn't. I have an affection for it (and am closing its ears while I type this...), but it feels cheap and tinny regardless of strings, and I wish I'd bought the Martin I really wanted. But I didn't know I was going to get serious about it again. Sigh...
