Buy an Acoustic Guitar: Budget and Price

In this text you will find some hints of things that you can watch when you buy a new guitar. In this article, I attempt to put in these elements which is further identified and organized so that you get a bit of a checklist that you can run if you’re going to buy a guitar. Stores usually have both acoustic and electric guitars. Hopefully this article helps you to choose the best guitar.

The first thing you should do is determine a fair budget. Do not expect to do great things as you on can spend € 100, but be honest with yourself. Do you satisfy with a guitar of € 10,000? You will be likely to opt for a guitar that increases your possibilities and conveys your personality. You will become frustrated if they are limited or if you feel you can not get everything out of the instrument that you had bought. For example, some classical guitars sound great when you have a very good technique, but undersized it if you have no hard tension strings handle.

Then you go look at the price. A higher price will guarantee a better guitar? Yes and no.
Yes, it would be miraculous, if you find a guitar of € 200 which is better than any of € 4,000.
No: in fact the previous everything that has been said already.

You can speak of a number of large price ranges. Classical guitar, and from my experience: <€ 100, € 100 – € 500, € 500 – € 2000, € 2000 – …

The first class is not recommendable. You might think that is not interesting for a beginner, so something cheap? My experience tells me that the best way to become disillusioned in playing the guitar is to take such a good tool. Cheaper one plays hard, intonated is often poor, and you will soon have an extra cost. So I have ever tried a guitar from € 35 to vote: I managed to vote in difficulty and at the end, the voting mechanism was broken.

The second class may indeed include all instruments that are acceptable, and that you can have fun all the time. So for years I played myself on a Yamaha, in current prices, about € 300, until I bought myself a new guitar. In this class you will even find guitars which at least the tops are solid, which means it is entirely composed of “real” wood, not plywood. Often you see it all on the inside edge of the sound hole, where the wood is cut.

The third class for me is a difficult class. It’s a bit neither meat nor fish. It certainly has decent tools, but you will not find top quality sound. If you are in an early stage of your guitar playing, this is definitely recommended a class to see how far you can get. If you already have a guitar of € 500 which is reasonable, and you want a real upgrade, then usually you will not end here.

The fourth class is very wide: from € 2,000 to … (fill free to € 15 000 and more). Here we come into the class of handmade guitars which would be very difficult to afford. At some point you are going to start paying for the name of the brand, it has never been a good idea. The message here is: test and search until you find “your” guitar.
