Taylor shouldn't be out of your price range, should they? If I'm not mistaken, a 300 series dreadnought, with a pickup system, and cutaway, would cost you no more than a grand...I know the non-cutaway dreadnought is only $800, at least here in Maine. The acoustic electric/cutaway version is a bit more expensive...Not sure how much though.
By all means, Martin will do great! I don't think you will like the action straight out of the box...But that can always be fixed in a jiffy.
I play a Raglan acoustic/electric, it's not the greatest sounding acoustic guitar out there, but it sounds very nice amplified (peizo), and it stays in tune like nothing I've ever played. (Provided I'm only playing rhythm). I play in my church, and it works like a dream. Real cheap too($240 for mine)...I think Martin will work wonders for you, but if you happen to see a Raglan or two...Check em out!
I wish ya all the best! Happy strummin'....
