I know there are a ton of guitar players on here, so I figure it can't hurt to ask if anyone has some insight on what is a good acoustic or acoustic-electric guitar. I have never played before. I'd like to keep it under $400, the less expensive the better, but I would rather have a real instrument and not a toy. I have been reading a lot of reviews online, but still trying to figure it out.

I scored an Axl chinese acoustic with pickups for $300 ozzie and it sounds nice to me if some one who isnt a drummer plays it.

there are so many nice acoustics out there the question becomes one of price verses value and sound quality verses playing ability.

I am unable to comment on the last criteria

You need to spend more money if you want a really good one. Yamaha makes good inexpensive ones.

Yamaha makes the best low end acoustics IMO. Stays in tune, low action - I forget the model # I had but it's usually just 100 bucks used in the local shop. Stay away from epiphone, never a good experience with that company and their product.

Don't start with an acoustic then. The action (how far you have to press the strings down) is higher and the strings are thicker/tauter. This all means blisters and discouragement.

I'd go for a cheap electric. Way easier to play, and you can always move on to acoustic once you have built up the muscles and callouses.


I've had a few cheap Epiphones that were just fine. They make some cool Les Pauls, SG's and Thunders-style LP Juniors that are cool and cheap. I've had all of these and was always happy.

Just don't get a Strat!!!!!!!!!

There aren't any on epay now, but watch for a Takamine F340 from the 70s (they're always avail). They were a cheaper take on the Martins- the F340 is a copy of the D18- a smaller easy to play acoustic. They're in your price range and good players.
