Are these cheap guitars worth getting for someone who is looking to learn guitar?

Ive not got one myself but a Maple neck and rosewood fingerboard is good. Hardwood body isnt the best but its £25! If someone is really looking to learn and if yor not good with guitars i'd suggest paying £10 to have your local guitar shop set it up properly so it plays nicer.


Good buy

yeah defo. Ignore those that say the action is bad or whatever. A few years back I bought a really 5hitty acoustic guitar of a mate. It had nylon strings but it was still enough for me to have a go on and get the bug. After about 6 months I bought a better quality one and gave my mate the old one back. These will be 10x better than the one I started with so if you fancy giving it a go buy one.

What happened to the cheap acoustic eBuyer used to do. The reviews on that were pretty good and it was only something £13!!

Yes and no. Quality control on these is variable. I got a fairly bad one, others had better luck. It is only really worth getting if you know or have access to someone who can set up the guitar for a beginner (i.e straighten the neck, sort out the frets to prevent strings buzzing and set the strings at a comfortable height etc), as the cost of having this done in a shop/professionally would probably outstrip the purchase price. let alone the looks of disdain from the techie at bringing in such a cheapie in the first place.

If you cannot get it set up properly, the chances are that it might put the learner off guitars for life, unless he/she is very determined to learn. Others have learnt on much worse equipment, so it can be done.

You would probably want to replace the strings, as the factory ones are really not much cop. Otherwise, I was pleasantly surprised by the finish - not really much worse than guitars going for £60-70, so definitely a bargain.

which is better and would last longer? one of these or a 2nd hand yamaha pacifica from ebay or freeads for £50?
#11
IMHO you learn better on a decent instrument, and I don't believe any guitar worth under £100, or even £200 falls into this category.

That said, it is cheap so less of a gamble for those wanting to dabble in the guitar or try it out. if you are seriously wanting to learn though, I would invest in something from a reputable music store.

it's not just the way it plays - cos it may feel OK for the money - but it's not going to sound very nice therefore when you're learning you won't sound as good as you possibly are because the instrument is letting you down.

It may only be £30, but that''s £30 towards a decent guitar.

if you want to learn guitar - borrow someone's for FREE -most people know someone with one. now there's a deal for you - don;t buy anything, ever, just borrow :w00t::oops:

you buy good- -you buy once!:thumbsup:

Definitely the pacifica - yamaha are the masters at constructing lower value instruments.

Get the Pacifica! I bought the 112V on Sunday for £159. Of course, far more expensive than this, but you get what you pay for with guitars, and honestly if you're going to be sticking at it you'll be wanting a new guitar within 3 months if you get the ebuyer one - just save the £30. The new 112 Pacifica is ace and the best in its price range, but if you can't afford it then there's nothing wrong with the old models at all - they're still nice little guitars. Just make sure if you are getting a cheap second hand pacifica, it's the 112 and not the 012. :thumbsup:

Voted this hot btw - if you're buying a guitar for someone that you don't think will stick at it for more than a few weeks, this is a good deal. :)

34.78 with cheapest delivery
unless im missing something....
#15
with cheaper guitars i wouldnt see playability as the big issue, the fact that as a beginner your going to be constantly battling the thing to stay in tune and possibly snapping alot of strings , or simply playing it when its constantly out of tune which will ruin the sense of achievement. Havent played it so dont know this is def the case but the yamaha most certainly would just laugh at this.

Although - kids like to have a guitar in their room because it looks cool, in the same way that some adults have samurai swords, if your not going to use them you wont know they're cheap junk

I am voting this Hot, but you must find a guitar playing friend who will put some decent strings on and set this up for you (for a guitar tech to do this will cost more than cost of guitar so .........)

scorez - If you think you would like to learn to play the guitar I would urge you to buy the best accoustic guitar you can afford (again , I would find a guitarist among your friends/aquaintances and get them to pick something out. Used guitars - £30 will buy a playable instrument, £50 will get you a Yamaha/Fender that you might want to keep your whole life). For a brand new one, about £70. Why accoustic? Because, you will soon learn 3 chords, then Wonderwall, then you will be away. Your finger ends will harden, and if you then move to an electric, the light strings will feel like putty in your hands. Start accoustic, get the chords. learn how to strum, think "running" and "walking".

This guitar is well worth the cash, but you will need to get it set up if you want to gig with it.

Sod the looks of disdain from guitar tech's in a shop, it's only because they want you to buy one of theirs! I got the grey one a while back with amp, lead, bag, blow tuner, for £45...anyways it was good to practice with and then I found I had to play it live, so got it set up and it sounds awesome. In fact the gutiar tech was very surprised to know how much it cost, and very impressed.

Down to personal choice.

Bear in mind getting a guitar set up properly can cost anything from £15 - £35...unless you have contacts.

I got the cheapy electric guitar and amp set, and it's been fine. I did need to pick up a digital tuner though.

It's good enough to learn on, chords and stuff sound fine.

You can always replace the strings with higher quality ones as well.

Most people try a few chords, skip to power chords and have some fun, before leaving the thing to gather dust ;)

Total waste of money

These guitars are terrible.

My first guitar was £300, now I've got one that was £1,200.

I can't even play the £300 jackson I bought anymore...

But those... haha never! Wouldn't even class them as guitars to be honest. Firewood, perhaps.

You really do get what you pay for, remember that!

Brian May has just sent me a text message saying that your intelligent and incisive comments are 100% correct. It is indeed impossible to display musical talent unless you spend at least £1200 on a guitar.

Some of the snobbery on here is unbelievable. There are tons of budget end models that are well worth a look. That end of the market has improved immeasurably in the last few years.

The main problem you'll find with the cheapest guitars is that you'll battle to keep them in tune. I had an Encore electric about 7 years ago (it was then £130 with amp) that had a great sound, but the tuning pegs were appallingly loose towards the end of its life. There's so much more choice now, and the quality you can get for around £100 will surprise a lot of people that wouldn't dream of looking at anything under a grand.

I shopped around for a replacement last year, and there were plenty of excellent models. Farida did some excellent, well-reviewed guitars sold through Dawsons, although the very cheap end no longer seems to be available (cheapest I see on there now is £130, whereas they had them for £60 last year).

I went with the Ibanez Gio, which is absolutely brilliant. I tried some of the cheap-end Yamahas, but I much preferred the action of the Ibanez. No tuning problems, excellent build quality, and plenty of change from £100.

Almost certainly not the cheapest, but to show you what I mean:

As for the Stage Sunburst, even if you have to tune it every 5-10mins that's a stunning price for an electric, even if you just buy it to mess about with.

I'll refer certain snobs here to the like of tokai and hondo guitars from the 80's some referred to as cheap tat now some are priceless

A good guitar player can make any guitar sound good as long as it holds its tuning ! i can pick up a cheap one like this an still get a decent sound im not saying this will sound fantastic but it will do the job!

In most cases you get what you pay for , for 30 quid its good for begginers whoever said if you buy good you buy once its all well and good in theory but who has £1000-2000+ knockin around for a guitar they might give up on in 3 weeks

The best advice on here though is to borrow first and see if your gonna stick at it then head to your local music shop try some guitars and see what suits you best when you start to know your way around the guitar.

Also for beginners out there i recommend checkin out youtube for lesson by justin sandercoe (justinguitar) and david taub (rockongoodpeople)

and theres also gear advice there if anyone needs that too

Great post.
I can remember reading anecdotes from musicians that have worked with Jeff Beck about his ability to sound like Jeff Beck on the cheapest guitar that you could choose to hand to him. A hell of a big part of the sound is all in the fingers.
banned#25
Vic N Bob Say ''We really wanna see those fingers''

Ive seen videos and anecdotes of chuck berry hand him a £3000+ guitar and watch him make it sound like tripe
lol im not dissing chuck we all have our off days but check out some of the youtube vids n see how bad he sounds and its mostly his tuning to blame

Another thing i dont think i seen mentioned here is STRINGS the ones that come on these are prob useless cheesewire that have been sitting fitted until youve bought it!

For most beginners any set of strings from 9- 42 will be nice and light for new fingers if you find the tuning slips give them a tug (not overly hard) think of your shoelaces when tightening your shoes just enough for a bit of give check your tuner see if its slipped retune and you should have steady tuning from when you restring

also at the nut (white bit of plastic at the neck) in each groove if you apply some graphite(from a decent pencil) this will also help maintain your tuning and prolong your strings from snapping (its not a miracle cure but it does help) and this can also be done to the saddles at the bridge

For anyone starting out First chord you learn should be an F major then the minor shape then learn which frets are which youll have practically every chord you'll need try not to use markers but to memorize the notes
once you can move the F shape comfortably you can play any song

Buy a METRONOME! PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE

Mine came today, got one for my sister at Xmas last year. The reduce price I thought i'd treat myself.

One question though, did anyone get a bag? My sister got one :(
