hey guys.
i'm a stringer, just of the classical variety! i can play a bit of guitar and would like to go and buy one so that i can play and teach myself some more. im not in a situation where i can hire one, and don't have much by way of funds! so if i could get some tips on what are good guitars, though not neccesarily expensive i would appreciate it.
i don't like ashtons either!
has any one heard of tanglewood?
thanks again!

hey bro,
you said you don't have a lot to spend. how much are we talking? This makes a huge difference in what you get. "not much" to some people is $100, where for some others it is $1000.

ok. are you looking to get a package that has an amplifier with it? Also, what type of music do you want to play, or what do you listen to? that makes a difference, as well.

All I can say is as a beginner you ought to learn on an acoustic, not an electric. Regardless of what you want to play later on, an acoustic guitar teaches the basics much faster and you have much better form than learning on an electric. Epiphone makes good cheap acoustics but just go to your local store and pick one that feels good to play.

yeah i as looking for an acoustic, i wouldn't be confident enough to be as loud as an electric, maybe on a violin....
i like softer rock because i would be no good at playing harder stuff, i listen to all types, and a bit of country (shhhh don't tell anyone!)i just want to play.

Here are three I recommend, but once again, if it is possible go to your local guitar store and play around a bit. Maybe you live in the middle of nowhere without a shop so you have to order online. I'll recommend some new guitars, although you can find some steals on ebay, but thats up to you to do your research. Also, the Takamine is my favorite of the 3, and try to stay away from the Squire brand, bad guitars.

cool thank you! and have any of you heard of tanglewood guitars? they look and sound ok, to me - but do you know anything else about them? they might be an australasian thing.
and yes my neighbour has a takamine, its a nice guitar!

Yes, Tanglewood I have heard of, seen in my local, and even tried them out. I believe they are a small company and probably hand made. Buy I don't remember them being cheap. Look them up on the net.

i got a guitar! its a fender CD 60, in black, its very sexy, an acoustic. might replace the factory strings on it, they are a bit too big, but can kind of play stuff already so thats alright. junior highschool lessons are kind of coming back!
if anyone can recommend some easy stuff to start off with that would be great!
thanks for the advice guys!
