Wanted: Beginner's acoustic guitar

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a decent acoustic guitar to start with?

I'm an absolute beginner.

Or does anybody have a decent acoustic guitar they want to sell me?

As a novice, I obviously dont want to spend too much on something that I might just be rubbish at. On the other hand, I suspect if I bought one from Argos, it would be cr@p.

Pls leave a message if you can recommend something or want to get rid of an old one.

Think it's the luck of the draw with shops like Argos - especially as you can't try before you buy. Mind you, they have that 16-day return policy so you could return a guitar that wasn't suitable. Maybe worth a try?

I've got a Yamaha F-310 and although the action is a bit high on mine, I know other folk who have it perfectly set up and they love it. I get calouses whenever I play, but I still wouldn't swap it for anything - got a great bassy sound too, even with light strings.

http://www.harmony-central.com/Guitar/Data4/Yamaha/F-310-01.html gives more details and a few reviews.

Cost wise, they're around 100 with bag, strap, etc.

Or ProSound of course. I think they've got some good cheap acoustics in just now.

Is it an F-310? If so and it's in good nick I recommend it to jahrule!

It is indeed an F-310

And it's pretty much as new.

I bought it when my sister kept stealing my guitar, for her to learn on. But she lost interest.
