Wow. I never been more impressed with a new guitar than I was when I opened up this Ibanez Acoustic I just got today..
For $250 US shipped, it came with this Amazing Hardshell case, well, Its actually a softshell case, but its rigid, probably enough for a 200lbs person to stand on it and it wouldnt cave in, but its light and easy to carry around.
So besides the case being awesome, I opened it up, it looks amazing (which is a given with Ibanez Acoustics), But when I played it, It was just so easy to play. Almost like playing an electric. Im really impressed, although im sure it wont be a loud sound, I dont play acoustic that often as is without plugging it in, so this is perfect for that situation.
It has a XLR plugin, along with a normal input. And a great EQ with tuner. I tested the tuner, it works to perfection.
Overall, I think these are amazing, even at the brand new price (aren't they like $350-400 at Guitar centers? I havent seen any in Halifax) And if you play acoustic mainly plugged in, rather than unplugged, I highly recommend these.
I think the model is AEL20E

Only have seller pics, as I have just a crappy cellphone cam.. Hopefully its somewhat GAS inspiring though.
