How To Choose The Best Guitar For Beginners

It's a question that most people ask when starting out.

Is quality always better and if so, is the price worth it?

It's a problem we come across so much when talking with beginner musicians, and future rockstars, “which guitar is best for beginners?

And I always give them the same response, because it's what I know from all my years of buying and playing on bad instruments.

Choose a guitar wisely, cheap isnt always the best best option.

Why a top quality guitar is better

Well, to start out:

Guitar Materials:

The rule is simple: you get what you pay for.

If you want a top-quality instrument, then you are going to have to invest in it.

Let’s imagine a guitar for a moment.

Just think about it.

Imagine that it is made with the cheapest material possible.

The wood will probably break within a short time frame, the strings might actually cut your fingers, (kidding! But they would certainly be harder to play), and you might have to re-invest in a few short months.

But wait - there's more:

Guitar Sound:

After all, sound is exactly what a musical instrument is all about.

The better the quality of your instrument, the better the sound will be.

And, what if you are trying to play like your favorite artist, maybe like Nikki Nikki

You won't get the results that you are after if playing on a much cheaper guitar.

You must remember that ‘your idol’ invests in good quality instruments for a very good reason:

Because it gives them great sound!

As if that's not enough:

Guitar Cost:

OK, we understand that you are trying to budget wisely...

And we encourage that you make an informed decision about your musical instrument.

But what if you did this:

What if you changed the way you thought for a moment.


A guitar is an investment, one that you want to last you for the long term.

So think about this:

If you buy a cheap guitar, you might have to spend a lot of money afterwards fixing it up.

Or maybe you will become a lot better at playing and you will want something of better quality very soon.
