Hi there,

I want to start playing a acoustic guitar but I ain't sure what one is good for me seeing as I'm a beginner. I'm looking to spend no more than £150.

Thanks for any help people.

Paul

This might not be a very helpful answer but in my opinion it doesn't matter what it is. Its your first guitar and you will love it no matter what :P

Yamaha is a safe choice. Their F310 starter kit is being offered on Amazon @ £110.00. (Or £130 with a case and stand.)

You could get the same model cheaper if you don't mind buying second hand, just search ebay.co.uk for F310.

(The F310 is a steel string guitar. C40 would be the nylon string equivalent.)

i wouldn't recommend buying used as a new player won't know what to avoid on the guitar.

to the op, the yamaha is a good choice.

I just looked in my Oxford English Dictionary and under "Acoustic Guitar", there was your Avatar and an email address!

Are you going to be taking lessons?

I'll be using vids on YouTube etc.
But, my brother plays guitar so could ask him if I can't learn myself.

If you check your local library, the 'teach yourself guitar' books are shelved around 787.6>787.9. The Hal Leonard Guitar Method seems to be the top seller on Amazon UK at the mo'.

Teachers are not really expensive. MusicTeachers.co.uk seems to have the most listed, but there is also the Registry of Guitar Tutors. The cheapest option tends to be group classes, your local college/community centre probably offers an evening course.
