How Can I Find an Affordable Beginner's Guitar?

by Andrew

My name is Andrew and I asked you a question on and you directed
me to this great site! I wanted to say thank you! However, I wanted to ask you
a question about buying a basic guitar for myself? I'm not really going for
quality of sound at this

point yet, but just something I can practice on. I'll go for quality later on
in my life when i have more money, but for now I just need something thrifty
for me to practice on. Can you suggest to me a good way I can find a cheap,
thrifty guitar that will allow me to practice to the best of my ability?


Hello, Andrew--

Glad to see you on the site.

As far as finding a guitar for you, here are some suggestions:

1. Ebay

2. Pawnshops

The problem with these two is you never really know what you are getting and have no recourse if there is a problem--although you might find a very good deal with no problems.

3. I looked around at the online music stores and found an interesting possibility for you. It is a Takamine--a very well know brand.

It is from Musician's Friend and the retail price is $259.00 It is on sale for $99.00.

You can see the guitar here:

Let me know what you think. You can trust Musician's Friend--I have purchased a lot of my equipment from them.
