I enjoy the new acoustic and with some work got my seagull to where it plays great again. So far the only acoustic I bought that didn't need a setup was the Epiphone EL-00 Pro. The Seagull when I got it was setup fine yet I had to replace the saddle because it was such a loose fit yet that was more of a patch job , this time I made a saddle that fit without shims. I had to fit a new saddle in the new Fender for the same reason , didn't have to make one like the seagull just fit one. None are expensive top of the line guitars yet as long as they sound and play well I'm happy. I'm happy I can do the work myself if not it would never happen since a good tech cost a lot. I have the 3 acoustics I don't count the Epiphone AJ-100 since it was $75 new and all I had was the Seagull. I only bought the Fender because I wanted something in case I couldn't get the seagull setup to play how it used to and it's 16 years old now. I could get by with just one mid priced all solid wood acoustic. I doubt I'll be buying any more guitar.
At the end of the day (I hate that saying), it's not the price or quality of the guitar, it's what you do with it.
I'm sure you know, but a lot of those old time blues players that both you and I like, used catalogue guitars costing a few dollars, and even modern blues players like SeaSick Steve, he got his guitar from a porn shop, and it only had three strings, he has now sold thousands of albums, and is world famous.😀
Come to think of it, that my be my problem, too many strings.
