i will cut a long story short and tell u dat pluto and granada though sound melodious are not dat great built wise.........da wood used is very hard and problems like fretboard bending occur very frequently and are very difficult counter if your guitar doesn't have a truss rod........
personally i favour a GB&A/Yamaha in your budget.......
but its totally depends on your choice, your style of playing, how comfortable you are with da guitar....i suggest u go to a guitar shop and try out various models till you find da one dat suits you....ofcourse since u are a beginner i suggest u take someone for who knows how to play the guitar for advice..........
