Hello I am reading the thread "How to buy an acoustic. What guitar is right for you?"

so I am not just opening a thread, please help me. I have bought 2 electric guitar via internet, I know it's not the best way. But it was for distance reasons.

I'm a girl I like to listen to rock, rock pop, classic rock. Something Like :

Beatles
U2
John Lennon
Shakira
Alejandra Guzman


I have a guitar effects, I like them a lot. But Now I want a guitar that doesn't need to be plug into an amp to play.

I would like to know which would be the best guitars in playability


thank you for the answers. For the money, I hope to spent as little as I can, but I think it won't work to set a price range cos I don't live in the USA. So It's better if you tell me about the brands and characteristics. Since I won't be buying it online


I have doubt about electric acustic guitars, can they be played and sound exactly the same as good as an acoustic guitar, without being plug into an amp ??

How much money do you have to spend on this acoustic?

brian poses a valid question. also, i'd probably consider an electric/acoustic. they cost a little more but you'll save in the long run. then you can plug it in( a little chorus and reverb really wake them up) if you so choose to. it's your third guitar so a beginner one wouldn't be advisable. spend a little more and get something you'll appreciate for years to come instead of trading up in 4 months(right mikeox?.. i know it's a genetic disturbance with you!!). anything you get new is most likely gonna have the action set up high but thats easily fixable.

I can highly recommend the Yamaha F310, its around a hundred and twenty buks, but its quality is far above its price! I have it myself. It has a thinner neck than most starterguitars ,and especially if you're a girl (most girls have tinier hands lol), thats really handy Just look at it :P

hard to pick out something for you. you dont live near me and your not setting a price cap.. whats cheap for me in the US may be uber-expensive where you are. its easier to list the things to avoid. guitars without adjustable saddles... i.e. shims or sandable bottoms(that way you can set the action where you like it... tho its harder to put the wood back on after sanding than just putting a shim or 2 back in.
laminate tops!! most here can tell you the evils of lam tops.( those that think they're ok... just haven't learned yet) a good decent one will have an all solid top made of spruce,koa,maple etc. beware of some makers with spruce veneer over the lam top...pay attention to how its worded.
a good guitar should start in the 300US and up range. anything lower will usually just sit in the corner unplayed beacuse you dont like the sound or are tired of tuning it every 2 songs
most of my guitars are elec/acous ones. not that i play or gig out alot( handy if i ever do) but because i can plug em in and really expand their sound if i choose. i only have 1 thats acoustic only and i rarely ever touch it.
