HELP ME BUY A GUITAR - July 20th 2012, 03:30 AM

Hi Everyone!

I hope you're geeling foovy!! lol

HEY! YOU! GUITAR PEOPLE!!

I'd like to buy a guitar. Nothing fancy. But not junk either.

What should I look for? What brand names? And how much should I be willing to pay?

Any other thoughts would be helpful!!

Thank you!

GBH - Craig!!

PS No - I don't actually play the guitar. But some old dogs can learn!!! lol

Hi there,

For an acoustic six-string, I'd go for a "Martin". The price range is pretty big for that brand ($200-over 5,000 [US]). They have great wood and a very nice sound. Gibsons and Epiphones work well too- but Gibsons tend to be more expensive.

Good luck with your new purchase! I myself have a Martin acoustic and am happy with it, but I think you've really got to pick up different brands to get a feel.
