Not sure where you are at but Seagulls are good in that price range and are made in Canada.

I'm a Seagull fan. Been playing acoustics for many years and always pick up the seagull first

Personally, I'd buy a less well known brand in a full size guitar.

I'm very tempted to buy a BBT. I currently have a Yamaha F310, which I believe is a similar size, and I don't think I would want to go any bigger. No decent guitar shops locally so I would have to buy online.

It's at the top end of my budget, but would it be much of an improvement compared to the Yamaha?

I'm hoping for richer tones and possibly improved playability?

Having read the comments above, I've looked at Seagulls, the S6 Concert Hall is a similar price, but I'm not sure how the size compares.

Comments welcome!

Both the Big Baby and The seagull s6 are good guitars but their tones are polar opposites so I suggest you go play them both at a local store to see what sound you like best.
The Big Baby has a clean tremble sound but I find that once the strings start to get old it sounds like a metal can and the guitar sounds like a cheap guitar
The Seagull is hand crafted out of better materials and will sound better as it ages.  The sound is often described as “muted” and might be to mellow for some peoples taste. The neck is a bit thicker then most guitars (which I like but not so good if you have small hands). It’s a great guitar for finger pickerpicking and I never get sick of playing it although I often have to switch over to my electric and smack down my tube screamer and rip some power chords  once in a while to get my fill before returning to the beauty that is the Seagull tone. 
Here in the states you can get either guitar for $399.
