If you’re looking to start playing an acoustic guitar then the first thing you need is a good guitar. Buying something high quality may cost you a little bit more (but it may not) but it’s going to give you a better overall quality of life and ability to learn. We’ve created this acoustic guitar buying guide to make the process of choosing just what you need a little bit easier, so you can be ready for absolutely anything you might need. Just make sure you know what you’re looking for.
Age: How old should you be in order to use this guitar? Is it designed more for adults or for kids or can anyone play? The size of the guitar will have somewhat of an impact on how you’ll be able to play and who should be using it.
Pieces Included: You may get more than just a guitar in the package that you’re looking at and you’ll definitely want to know what all you’re getting. Make sure that you know how many pieces to expect so you know everything is there.
Color: This is about personal preference but it can be about traditional looks as well. You can likely find a guitar that’s just about any color imaginable, but keep in mind this isn’t going to affect anything but how well you like to show it off.
Case: Do you get a case with the guitar you choose? Having a case already with the guitar can be convenient and it can help you keep your guitar looking good as well. Make sure you know if this is something you need to purchase separately.
Dimensions: How large is the guitar? This is also going to be similar to the age you should be to play it because something too large might be difficult for smaller children, where something too small might be difficult for adults to play.
Warranty: How long is the warranty? The longer the warranty the more you know the company is going to stand behind their product and that’s definitely an important feature. Make sure that you know what you’re getting and how good it’s supposed to last.
