Can I just add a little piece of advice for the first-time buyer?

The final decision is yours and yours alone. It's always good to get help and advice from more experienced friends. But at the end of the day, it is your guitar not theirs. You don't buy a guitar because it looks cool, or because it has a particular brand on the headstock, or because you want to impress your friends. Let's be honest, these are definitely factors that might influence your decision. But first and foremost you want a guitar that sounds good (to your ears) and feels right (to your hands). No matter how inexperienced you are, your own instincts should really be the deciding factor.

Without a doubt. Take heed of this, readers.

if your having trouble choosing one, just go into the shop, play with everyone there, and buy the best feeling one, make sure its not too dear though, unless your actually getting in to music

Martin D-18 is the perfect guitar. Not over-priced, it has the structural intergrity to last a lifetime while producing some of the sweetest melodies I've ever played. It's like me, flash can be wasted on Gaga. The music's what counts and the D-18 will do it son.

Here is a video of some guy comparing some top woods. Although it's not 100% correct in how he compares them (due to bracing changes), but it's a good start none-the-less:

A Seagull S6 Entourage would probably suit her nicely. It's just a simple, inexpensive, good sounding guitar.

The forum-goers did most of the work and you put together that list of guitars. I just revised it.

Thanks for the kind words though.

Hi Guys,

i just bought a Yamaha FGX730SCE from guitar-center for 499.
And i found that Fender also sports a good guitar of similar type DG200SCE. and really found good reviews on that.
both got solid spruce top and rosewood body.
moreover fender has gold tuners and fishmen pickup. and 100 bucks cheaper.
please guys help me. i am so so confused.


thanks in advance.

Hey,

The way i see it is, whatever guitar your comfortable with you should buy, once it has good sound and is easy to play for you thats all you need, ive still got my guitar i started out with and it was a really low budget guitar but i still love playing it

Ive been playing for only a month, and i really need a different guitar. When my brother moved out i was left with his Lyon "Washburn" acoustic walmart guitar, and i can barely play it. Im a girl, 15, and from the base of my palm to the tip of my middle finger is about 5&3/4". So basically, i have toddler hands, and i cant play any bar chords, or chords that require i use all 4 fingers. I was wondering if i'm just whining like all the other newbs, or if i could really benefit from a smaller guitar, thanks.
