I've always wanted to get into playing guitars but i was told starting off with an acoustic was better, i prefer the sound from an electric though

Thats silly, start with what ever you want.

I have that second guitar, its decent enough to learn on, youll soon be wanting better though.

I would say that was poor advice - acoustic guitars typically have higher 'actions' (the distance from the strings to the fretboard), which can hurt your fingers more when pressing the strings down. Also their necks (the distance across the whole strings) are wider, which can make it harder to learn to 'Bar' chords.

I'd recommend someone new to guitars start with an electric...not sure I'd I'd recommend this one...it's sure to suck.

It's wrong that you can get a real guitar and amp for less than the price of a Guitar Heroes guitar, right?

Good find OP :)
#7
These are not bad for the money. Good for learning on and if you find guitars are not for you then you have only wasted £40.

Had 2 of these so far one was well finished and one wasn't, but I suppose it is the chance you take for the price.

Spot on advice, epecially if you don't have big hands but remember you can buy guitars in 3/4 sizes too & yes like most things that require craftmanship & contain electonics you truly get what you pay for in terms of quality but that said its ideal for a beginner or someone's kid to see if they enjoy playing, if they continue playing then they should upgrade to something better.

Dunno about spot on. Classical guitars typically have wider necks, acoustic guitars typically have about the same width neck as electric guitars. As for action, it's a bit of a lottery and these things can be adjusted to taste within reason.
For the record, my Stage came with too high an action to be really playable - particularly lower down the fretboard. If you are looking for an acoustic with low action then Yamaha make good beginner guitars.

I forgot to mention that (typically) acoustic guitars use a heavier string gauge ...meaning more force is needed to press the strings down (ultimately meaning sore fingers for a beginner...I reckon too sore fingers is one of the main reasons beginners give up early),

Therefore Acoustic high action, wider neck vs electric guitar (often!), heavier string gauge all make an electric a better choice. Not to mention *if* the action *is* set too high then it's (typically) one helluva ot easier to lower the action on an electric guitar (turn a small allen key type screw), whereas with acoustics, it's 'get your file out' time!
#11
I would say learn on an acoustic BECAUSE it's slightly more difficult. Your fingers will get stronger and all calloused up quicker, and then switching to an electric will be a doddle. Because the action is higher, you learn to play a little better, and you can't hide behind distortion either. Also, listening to someone learn on an electric - especially a fairly rubbish £40 one - is painful.

It depends, though. Just learn on what you want to play is the best advice.

Also if you DO fancy learning the electric guitar, DEFINITELY get a Squier Strat over one of these.

I see your logic, but the man in the street no longer does 'difficult'. The amount of acoustic/electric guitars in lofts & car boot sales are testament to that!

Sunburst has gone up in price but the black model is still available for £38.96 + delivery.

This is good advice, wide classical necks and thick nylon strings will also teach good technique. Bar chords are not much more difficult.

Accoustics don't necessarily have a higher action and thicker strings, I have an Ovation which has very much an electric style action.

Low soft actions often result in fret buzz for beginners.

That'll be because they are heavy. Hey, it's ebuyer! Slap some gizmo or other onto the same order to get it over £50 and the shipping is free.

Big advantage of learning on an electric - HEADPHONES. You may torture your own ears with endless repetition of "Smoke on the Water", but the sanity of your loved-ones will be preserved:thumbsup:

Bear in mind this is a £30 guitar (ie allowing £10 for the amp here!) . Let's compare apples with apples!

A £30 electric guitar will be - by & large - *much* easier to learn on that a £40 acoustic guitar. Lower action, lighter strings, easier to set intonation (it will almost certainly be out!), thinner neck, easier main body to nurse....& as the last poster said virtually silent (either on headphones or unplugged) as you muller "Stairway to Heaven".

OMG!!!

All you guys arguing over what he should learn because of neck widths, scale lenths and action heights. You guys are completely missing the point! Learn the instrument that you want to play! If you want to play Smoke on the Water and stuff that needs electric guitars then getting an acoustic because it it may or may not be better to learn on is completely dumb.

If he really loved the bass guitar would you tell him to get a lead guitar instead because the scale length is easier to play? Give me a break. Let the guy play what interests him, because that is ultimately what will make him want to get better at the instrument.

Especially when at the end of the day its a toss up of whether an acoustic is easier or an electric.

Erhhmm...they're totally different instruments - so no! If he wants to learn bass guitar, then there'll be separate arguments for that instrument.

[sigh] Let's keep the thread to comparing apples vs apples again! (which seems to be a hard concept to grasp round these parts). The point being a £30 electric guitar will probably suck, but it'll suck a whole lot less than trying to learn on a £40 acoustic guitar, which makes this a great deal if you're slightly curious about learning to play guitar.

Thinking about getting this yfor a complete beginner.

Was looking to add some headphones as well to try and bring it over £50, any ideas which ones will work with the Amp??

What else would your guitarists recommend for beginners... tuner, plecs, beginner guide to guitar! :-D

Thanks Rob

A tuner is a must, you can get a cheap digital one for a little over a fiver online but if you spend £15 then you can get one with a built in metronome.

At least one spare pack of strings is a must, though the thinner strings are the ones that snap most often, consider them.

You definitely need plectrums too. If possible avoid the novelty picture ones and get some proper ones. :thumbsup:

I dunno if this guitar set comes with a guitar cable or not, you will need one of those. They are only a few squids but the cheap ones tend to fall to bits after not too long. If you are serious about guitar a more expensive one with a lifetime guarantee is the cheapest way to go in the long run, but in this case you will probably just need a cheap one.

A good book to get started is a good idea but also remember that there is a lot of content online. Youtube has a lot of video lessons which make a good substitute to paid guitar lessons. Check out http://www.justinguitar.com and his youtube videos http://www.youtube.com/justinsandercoe

Cheers for the very informative reply! :thumbsup:

Can any of these be got at Ebuyer, or can you recommend an online outlet? Would be great if you could buy a little "beginners pack" to include all of these things.

I know most of it will be cheap **** and the old adage you get what you pay for is very true, but if the guitar playing takes off then i have no problem upgrading as i go along!

That link is brilliant! Will definitely be using that in the future. :)

You can buy them, but only music stores sell them. Ebuyer just happens to sell a couple of cheap guitars, it's not really a place to buy musical stuff.

For small stuff like strings and tuners ebay is by far the cheapest place, probably half the price in shops. Otherwise any music store will have this stuff.
