Is this a decent guitar to purchase?

Hi, I'm interested in purchasing an acoustic guitar and am having trouble finding one. I am running a very tight budget so I'm hoping to find one around one-hundred dollars. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-NATURAL-BEAUTY-LEFTY-LEFT-HANDED-ACOUSTIC-GUITAR_W0QQitemZ200295451181QQihZ010QQcategoryZ155298QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262 That is a link to one on ebay that I am looking at and interested in. And as you can see I am also left-handed.


Thanks,
Libby

Hi, Libby--

I looked at the guitar. I could not see the brand name on the peg head, but I don't see how you could go wrong for the price.

The main problem with the less expensive guitars is that sometimes the strings are not set close to the fretboard, which makes it more difficult to play--especially for a beginner.

You might be able to get around that problem by having the truss rod adjusted and using lighter gage strings.

Let us know what you decide and how the guitar works out if you do buy it.

Best Wishes,
Lynne
