    The guitars you choosed are very good .. and i may saw the AE - 125 is better ad on higher side as compared to AXP500 II ... So you may go for it ...

    But i may suggest you buying a hollow body guitar rather then Electro - Acoustic ....

    You can simply buy a Hollow Body Electric at that price.... and get a good sound too ........

    The Applause 125 has a very shallow body if I remember correctly. It won't do you any good as an acoustic.

    If you don't have urgent requirements to plug in your guitar I'd recommend you buy an acoustic guitar, because a part of the cost of an acoustic-electric comes from the pickup and preamp system, and at that price range you're likely compromising both on the quality of the guitar and the electronics, for example the Nato wood used on the Yamaha.

    Look into the Walden G550, or the D550CE if you're inclined towards acoustic-electric. Solid spruce top, mahogany body, nitro finish with Fishman pickup and preamp.
