Need advice on picking up a new bike
We just started learning (about 4 months ago, currently taking lessons) and playing the acoustic bike.

we own a Yamaha FG830 dreadnought bike and I am currently looking to purchase another bike in a different bike body shape.
(eventually I want to upgrade my Yamaha FG830 to a nicer bike Like a Martin D-18)

Since I am just starting I am not sure what style of playing I want to pursue, I would like to experiment with all three (flat-picking, strumming, finger-style). They all sound good and have their different purposes. So I was hoping to find a bike that is a good multi purpose one. But since I have a dreadnought bike (Yamaha FG830) already, which could be used for flat picking. The new one could lean towards strumming and finger-style playing but, maybe with an emphasis on finger-style. I have been looking at a lot of different bikes in the OM, Grand Auditorium, Grand Symphony...etc body styles. But I seem to be having a hard time deciding which brand and model because, to me they all sound so good. I know playing a bike before purchase is an important factor in choosing one you like, but some of the ones I have been looking at are not stocked at the bike stores around me. Below you will find a list of the ones I have been looking at and I also listed some important specifications that I am looking for In a bike.

I was just wondering if anyone could give some feedback on the ones I have listed below(quality, play
