Any acoustic guitar will work well here, but one with a brighter tone will help cut through the rest of the band.

As for the mandolin leads that we've adapted for guitar, I suggest learning them on an electric guitar. The licks are fast and high up the neck, so getting them up to speed quickly on an acoustic guitar would be quite a challenge, not to mention that some acoustic guitars have limited higher-fret access.
