I want a TOUGH guitar!

I need an acoustic guitar to incorporate into an art installation. It'll be played roughly (by machines!), rest at an odd angle for years in conditions of unknown temperature and humidity, and be tuned only occasionally. What guitar should I get that won't crack, warp, or otherwise disintegrate under this treatment? Durability is more important than beauty or tone quality. I'm sure an electric guitar would be tougher, but I'd like to stay acoustic if possible.

Bonus points if it's a model I can pick up at (ugh) Guitar Center, and not too odd or strangely shaped, so it could be replaced with a similar model in the future if necessary.
