First guitar

Get paid this week and I'm planning on buying my first guitar, well.. second but the one I've got at the moment is a pile of crap! Honestly.

My price range is between 100 - 200 pounds, I was just wondering what is the best value for money guitar?

I wouldn't mind something that is a little folky sounding too.

BTW, isn't that more of a question for the pit? It doesn't have much to do with the topic being discussed.

I don't post on here often. I only do when I want to be reminded that most guitarists are dullards.

Most people are dullards anyway. So, why would you expect that guitarists wouldn't run with the demographic pack, so to speak?

I've often considered this question myself. However, I've drawn a few conclusions about the answer. With that said, I doubt that it would be entirely proper to share many of them.

And with that out of the way, I'll surrender to the angels of my better nature and conclude that, "they're running on pure enthusiasm, that's why they join".
