hey guys my friend is totally new at an instrument and wants to pick up the guitar. His budget is about 600 dollars and it can go a little over that. I had my eye on the taylor 110 dreadnought acoustic, but i had the feeling taht i couldve gone with a better alternative or perhaps it wasnt necessary for a beginner...anyone have suggestions? thanks a lot
ive got a pretty nice ibanez

(A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music)

Taylors and Martins are shit in the lower end, stay away.
Get an Alvarez or a Yamaha.
For that price you can get a reeaally gorgeous Crafter. They sound great, though a little trebly, and they look the part too.
