Good Guitar

Recommended Posts

What is the good guitar for a beginner, don't want to invest a lot of money, or just want to experiment with the style of guitar, but not a classical guitar to play professionally.

Karine welcome to the forum.

Acoustic or electric guitar, sorry just not sure, if acoustic Crafter or Yamaha

If Electric either a squire fender (tele or stratocaster)

None of the above should be too expensive, try a few and see what feels comfortable to play and sounds good to you. enjoy

Hi Karine.

Not that I want to give you the brush off, but there are really just too many good starters out there. I suggest you do a search (top of the forum) and look for previous threads that have dealt with this. There have been quite a few. The nice thing about starters is that you don't have a lot of money invested so if it just isn't working out for you, you won't lose a lot.

Welcome to the forum and stick around.

Karine,

 

A Telecaster would be a fine starter instrument but don't get the Squire version. The pickup selector switch will quit working before you've had it for a week.

 

Well worth the extra $ to get the Fender brand Mexican manufactured Tele.

 

Good luck finding something you like.

Karine, welcome to the forum, although it may not be a long-term investment you should never feel that you wasted money. You should choose between acoustic or electric based on the music you listen to.

 

Some personal input: Ive had a bad experience with the Squier Standard Strat, it completely dissatified me, always be 100% sure when making a purchase. I recommend an Epiphone Les Paul 100. It feels great on the hands and has awesome tone for a starter guitar.

Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Whatever starter you chose, make sure it's not difficult to play, ie. high action on the strings, poor tuners... these are a couple things that can discourage you quickly... You don't need to spend mega-money but at least get one that feels comfortable...
