I'd second the Godin Acousticaster and they certainly are available outside Canada. I've seen several for sale here in the Surreal Kingdom of Belgium (...and if they're available here...!). If I'm not mistaken, Dick Gaughan uses one (see Sail Away album, but I'm not at home to check right now).
Should be in your price range Aine and also has a reasonably thin neck (too thin for me!)and good electronics.
All the best,
