Acoustic guitar price vs sound???


Hello everyone,,
Is there a linear or specific jump in quality between guitar price and sound as both go up. I know expensive guitars usually provide a better sound but when you would put it in graph, would it be a linear line or have specific jumps between price segments?

I started out with a $70 dollar guitar which was fine for the basics. I then bought and still have an way better sounding guitar which cost about $350. The jump in quality is amazing. I want to play music of True Surf via my guitar.

I was thinking about buying an even better guitar but I was wondering how much the gap in sound would be when I would buy a $600, $800 or even $1000 dollar guitar. Would this blow my mind as big as my first upgrade, would it be worth the investment?

I know trying out in guitar stores is a good way to measure the quality but I'm sure there has to be a general outline on sound quality and price.

Thank you for reading my post and I hope you can help me.
