There’s no such thing as the right or wrong acoustic guitar, they are all playable, it is just that some suit some people more than others and the golden rule with buying an acoustic guitar is you really do get what you pay for within reason. There are sharks who will try to get you to spend more than you need to, but at the same time, you should buy the best quality guitar your budget allows. Always shop around and talk with other players, especially your teacher and the sales staff in any reputable music shop.

When you enter a music shop you will find that there are countless lovely looking acoustic guitars and other instruments to dazzle your eyes.
You probably really wish to take the best acoustic guitar home with you, but the reality is you just don’t have a clue how to choose one that’s right for you.

This article is designed to help you choose the best acoustic guitar:

Your Budget

You need to make an informed decision on which guitar is right for you, there are good acoustic guitars in most price ranges, so work out the budget you have and look for guitars around that price range. Don’t be fooled into buying expensive extras and accessories and high end tuners are relatively unimportant, just find the best value available for your money.

What matters in an Acoustic Guitar?

Size does matter with acoustic guitars and bigger is not always better, just because a guitar is popular or has a brand name does not mean it’s the best guitar for you. There are recognised traditional acoustic guitars that have been played by many of the greats and used for many recording sessions and is very cool looking, but that does not mean it will be the right choice for you.

Pick up a few acoustic guitars and play them or if you’re just starting out strum and feel the size of the neck and fretboard. Do your fingers feel comfortable, is the weight right for you. Try sitting with it to see how it sits with you. Stand and walk a bit, is it comfortable and hanging right for you. Once you have a selection of styles you like, stop and check out a few others that may be way beyond your price range or don’t look appealing to you. This is for comparison, so you get a feel for different guitar styles. Don’t let anyone push you into making a choice as you’re the one who has to live (or play) with it.

Check the sounds of different guitars, keep in mind that when you do purchase an acoustic guitar you will have it tuned to you and your particular needs by a professional, probably in the shop you purchase if from, so try and talk a bit with them. They have probably helped hundreds of people find the right acoustic guitar and can help you..

The type of an acoustic guitar a person chooses is a very individual and personal thing and it’s important for your playing enjoyment to get an acoustic guitar that feels right for you. Get a guitar that fits you well, sounds and feels comfortable and you enjoy playing.
