I'm a luthier in Portland and before I send a guitar out I go through a list of about 15 things. they are:

Top quality , back and sides quality, tuning ease, bridge pin ease, fretboard buzz, fretboard dead spots, neck shape preference, action preference, measuring stiffness of the top and back, mass consideration, evenness of finish, craftsmanship details, intonation quality, pickup quality.

I thought I'd write about these qualities and put it in a guide aimed at helping new buyers. There's too much to post here, check out the full article here: intermediate acoustic guitar buying guide
