The best answer is to find as many good guitar shops round your way as possible (by "good", I mean "stocks at least four of the eight makes above" as a rule of thumb). Hit the shops, and play as many instruments as you can. Buy the one you like best.
If there's any other way of finding a good instrument, I don't know what it is.
