What's a good 1st guitar?

My best friend brought her 1960's acoustic guitar to my house, and taught me how to play a few chords. I can now play the very beginning of Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles, and I really like playing the guitar. She said I was pretty good for a beginner with no pick( i had to play with my fingers instead). I really like the guitar, and want to save up for one. What's a good 1st acoustic guitar, ( if there is a big difference in brands- i don't know much about guitars)and about how much do they generally cost? Thanks!

My first was a used Yamaha for $100. Then I moved on to a vintage Martin (1948) that my then-boyfriend, a guitarist, scored for me from a pawn shop. He paid $500 15 years ago and I'm sure it's worth thousands. I guess pawn shops are good places to get guitars, if you're into that sorta thing (pawn shops, I mean).

I don't want to step on any toes... well not too rigorously at least.

There's many a helpful thread for beginners.

As for advice, go for just about anything. Preferrably something thick to build up your hand and wrist strength.

Danelectro makes some good hollow-bodied electrics that have an acoustic sound. They sound great whether they're plugged in or not. They're usually inexpensive on e-bay. Danelectros are my favorite type of guitar--the hubby and I have three of them.
