Glad to help! :D There are several acoustic bases with alot of brands that I cannot recall, however, I myself was playing some at a music shop the other day and I'm really starting to like their "neck action" and lighter feel about them. I've no doubt they can rock up as well. What I suggest is you look carefully at the craftmanship of the whole body structure and make sure there are no dints or scrathes first.

Secondly, have a close listen to the sound they produce as some are "fatter" than others dues to hollow wood body. I would recommend a lighter sound to medium for busking.

Thirdly, the price! They can range from $300-$800 and the difference in sound is unique although you won't hear it straight away. I'd go for something in the $400-$700 range for longevity and variability to achieve soundscape of different genres to play at a given notice for night club gigs as well. But if economic downturn is affecting you go for the lower price tag :D

Lastly, treat them with utmost care as they can be very fragile and won't take too many bumps continuosly. The brand I'd look at is "crafter" as I think it's most underated.
