Fair do's chaps but is it worth fifty quid?! My daughter wants to learn the guitar and I don't want to spend vast amounts in case she doesn't take to it as she thinks she will.

£50 is cheap for a guitar, though most of the time, you get what you pay for. Though,aside from trawling 2nd hand shops, this is as good a place to start as any (without delving deeper online & having a look).

Thanks for that. I have a feeling guitars are like health clubs/gyms - I hope my little girl doesn't lose all interest in the first 4 weeks :)

You're way better off buying something second-hand from Gumtree. Around half retail price is the going rate for a decent or at least half-decent guitar, and try and find something that's on sale at around £100 with a retail of near £200. You'll get a much better instrument, she'll be much more inclined to play it, and if it all goes ****-up, you can resell without making a loss. It's win-win. And I've lucked into some cracking guitars at absurdly low prices thanks to the occasional mid-life crisis, unexpected job loss, newborn, and immigration.

Agreed. I work in classical music and we never encourage people to start with these type of deals. We often find varnish cracks, lacquer can start coming off the fretboard etc. Much better to spend just a bit more and get something half decent.

I got a cheap guitar in a 'guitar' shop. £35 (3/4 size)

If the guitar is for a kid a full size could be a bit on the big side. (depends on kids age/size)

Now moved up to a fender electric since oO

I disagree - to a beginner one acoustic guitar sounds pretty much like any other. The strings are the same, the frets are in the same place and unlike a secondhand one, it shouldn't have any signs of wear and tear.
If said beginner takes to the guitar, well yes, then is the time to look at a more expensive model, but when learning an instrument, I'd always buy new and cheap, especially if you don't take to it and it finishes up in a box in the attic!

This is a good buy for a beginner. There's no way of knowing what the action is like though, and if it's for a young girl, she'll find it extremely difficult to play if the action is too high.

That's all very well but if you really don't know much about guitars then you stand a fair chance of buying a poor quality guitar off gumtree - great if you know what you are buying, not so good if you do not.
