Martin 00 and 000 series whether 18's or 28's have great balance of sound, projection provided one doesn't get a 'dud'. Another option is an M-38 Martin which I'm not sure if they're still being manufactured or not. Eric Clapton played one is the MTV Unplugged video/DVD. Older small bodied B-25 Gibsons and F-30 Guilds are very good, also. Gurians...if you can find one are among the best American made acoustic guitars made in the 70's. The finest guitar I ever heard was built by a little known luthier named Jan Burda who lives in Michigan. It was a Walnut sides/back and Red Ceder top w/ mahogany neck and an ebony fingerboard. OOO-28 size w/scalloped bracing. Good luck in your search.
