or

This one
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ibanez-AEG10NE-Nylon-String-Cutaway-Acoustic-Electric-Guitar-102960135-i1150889.gc

Both are within my price range under $350

Which one do you think will be better.
Its not my first acoustic but it is my first nylon string guitar I'm getting it mainly because my acoustic is seriously impossible to fret. And I tried classical guitars at guitar center and they are easy to play, easy to fret, and the strings aren't hard on your fingers plus I love the sound.

I've never really heard anything good about Ibanez classical guitars. I know their acoustics are sub-par. I'm pretty sure Yamaha makes some good classical guitars if I remember right.

Well, first off, don't buy a classical guitar just because you can't fret your steel string. All you need is more practise.


If you really do like the sound, please, don't get either of those. Do you really need the electronics? Will you be plugging in that often? Will you be gigging on it? If you're not really sure then it probably means that you aren't in the immediate future. I'd invest in a guitar like:

All within your budget, all much better than the Ibanez. If you really really want electronics, you're going to be looking at guitars with laminated tops in that budget that will sound much worse than any solid top guitar. All of the ones I brought up were solid top. And that's looking at GC website.


I'm not sure how much this guitar costs in the States, over here it's like 200 or 300 euros, which is a bit over your budget but these Alhambra guitars are well worth it:

I second this. I too had the problem just kept at it, even if it's 30 minutes for the day. Every little helps.

Might try changing your acoustic to light strings also. Another problem might be a bad setup with super high action. Maybe it was setup to be used as a slide guitar during the strange days.

No you don't understand I've been playing for two years and i know a lot of things. I've even played steel string acoustics at guitar center and they were easy to play. Mine is unknown brand, i just put new strings on it, and its probably worth less than $50 haha its so bad. So no practice isn't an issue the frets are really high up from the neck. And thanks for the suggestions.

Just checking, some people can do some crazy things

Like the guy that thought classical guitar strings were too hard so he replaced the strings with spaghetti. Or the guy that tried to tuna fish. *Ba dum tish*
