So I bought this today...

http://craftereurope.com/prodinfo9772422/

Has a really nice solid "Andes Rosewood" arch top, solid mahogany back and sides. Mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard and bridge. Came with a hard case as well, I bought it used 200.00. Pretty cheap as it sells for 649 new.

I plugged it into my Fender Excelsior and it sounds really full and rich. Definitely gonna work as a gigging and busking guitar. The Kent Armstrong Lipstic pickup is good for bluesy Seasick Steve slide and stuff but it really shines on the L-R Baggs element pickups you can blend them but I find it doesn't sound that great. Anyway, photos here:

Yeah, but it's a lot of cash.

I've got a small Crafter acoustic and I think that they are a lot of guitar for the money. Yours looks great.
