    Fender FA- 100
    Yamaha F310
    Or Ibanez jam pack (cost around 6k-7k) ?

    I want a solid body.
    Which one will be better? Guys please suggest me. Or is there any other good brand or model?

    Just buy a guitar. It's not rocket science. Go into a shop, try it and if you like it, buy it. Not everyone can make out the difference between different types of wood and while even the slightest detail does affect the sound of the guitar, the difference isn't always discernible. Some of the questions you've posed, I can answer:

    a) An F cut makes life easier if you want to play higher than the 14th fret. Whether you need to play higher than the 14th fret depends on the music you're playing. If you like dreadnoughts without F-cuts, buy one.
    b) Buy a 21 fret guitar. It's a standard size.
    c) Honestly, just buy one. Start playing. If you're still interested a year or two down the line, buy a better one.

    Cort Guitars are nice, and so are Yamaha - I went today looking for a Steel String acoustic guitar and ended up getting a Yamaha C70 Nylon String Guitar......Amazing sound for the price really, Nice crisper notes and good depth in the overall tone........

    It basically comes down to your ears and the kind of tone you are looking for, I would say check as many guitars as you can and get the right one, that sounds right, and plays well for you.....

    I think the Cort AD810 is a good guitar, i tried it today and it was nice sounding had more depth than the Yamaha F310.....
    But the cort had a really rough neck finish which i didn't like, I think it was just that specific one that had that kind of neck........otherwise had a good sound to it.....But whichever guitar you get, its always a good idea to get it setup properly by someone who knows how to do so......

    For the 5k range, you'd probably get a Pluto/Granada/J&D/GB&A which you'd like. On a slightly higher range (around 7-8k), I've played some pretty nice Samicks and Fenders.

    Also, while choosing between a lowest range Yamaha and a high range Pluto/GB&A, I've normally liked the high end lesser brand guitars better. It will depend on personal preference though.
