Here

Pretty cheap at $300, but the only problem is no pickup. I could buy a floating one somewhere down the line if need be, but i imagine it's awkward playing with a drop in floating pickup.
Worth it?

Here's the vibe I'm going for unplugged

Don't knock it because it's pop. Listen for the tasteful, yet frustratingly complex chord substitutions and fills. Plus it's Korean, so it's automatically awesome.

I dont think being Korean makes everything awesome...

My first guitar is/was a Harmony Hollywood archtop with a gold foil pickup at the neck. Love it except i cant play standing up because it feels so cumbersome and awkward.
Anyway, I'd look to getting an archtop with a pickup already installed, preferably a floating one if you want the jazz purist cred. if youre cool about modding though, go for the one in the ad there.
also, archtops with aftermarket pickups sound 10X better than acoustics with anything electronic inside.

Nice looking guitar, I like it very much. Also the guitar sound in the song you posted is lovely but the song is guff.
