    All I know is that the last 2 have solid spruce top as opposed to the 1st one having just a spruce top. I read reviews saying this gives the guitar a more crisp, bold sound. Is there anything else I need to know about the 3? I'm a beginner but learning quickly, so maybe in a few months to a year I'll be intermediate. I am not currently taking lessons, but I did last year.

    Any guitar pros out there wanna help me out? I'd like to purchase one of these Takamine's this week or next week. Thanks!

    As money is a bit tight, go for the first one. It looks like a decent guitar. As you are a beginner I would recommend just buying a regular old beginner's guitar, as when you get better and upgrade you can really appreciate a solid well built guitar. However from your other thread it seems you want to do some recording, so an electro acoustic would be a good idea, and the cheaper Takamine will do that job perfectly. You don't need any more than that.
