I'm currently on the look out for cheap acoustic guitars. Are there any specific brands I should look for? As long as it's not terrible . I'm good with okay. So brands?
probably out of his price range considering he knows nothing about guitars.
look at yamaha or epiphone acoustics. they are cheap enough to where it won't break your heart if you give up playing, and if you stick with it, you'll be able to buy a nicer guitar later down the road.
Use the acoustic forum, and give more information with your post. Budget, styles, etc.
