What is the best beginner Acoustic Guitar?

The Acoustic Guitar is great for new guitarists and beginners to start on. I will link you to a few different guitars that I think you may be interested in but you can explore are full range here

The first Acoustic Guitar I would recommend is the Rocket Acoustic Guitar as it is a good option at a low price point. This is ideal for if you’re working to a more strict budget or if playing guitar is only a small hobby. It comes with all accessories that would be needed to learn the guitar so nothing extra needs to be purchased. Along with this it is designed to be comfortable for beginning or younger guitarists.

A Slightly Bigger Budget…

If you have a slightly bigger budget then I would propose looking at the Yamaha Acoustic Guitar . This is a great option if you plan on playing the guitar for a long time as there would be no need to “upgrade”. This guitar has a solid Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides which ensures good tone. This is a very popular wood combination on acoustic guitars. Yamaha utilise “scalloped bracing” in the construction of the guitar to ensure solid construction.

Another budget option, available with a large variety of colours to choose from. Ideal for someone who wants their guitar to look good as well as sound good. Also available as an electro-acoustic, which would be great if you foresee live playing or recording, another benefit to the SA20ACE is that it features a cutaway so reaching higher notes is much easier than on a regular acoustic.

Finally,  we have another nylon string model, a spruce top, meranti back and sides and a rosewood fingerboard. This option has great tone as well as the ease of playing that comes from a classical guitar. Along with this it features a pre-amp which means the CX40 can be plugged into an amplifier or PA system for performances or recording.
