As long as it is fairly forgiving to my fat fingers on the fretboard and stays in tune I won't be too disappointed. I am a long way from being a discerning muso but (if) when I get to that point I am sure I will join the chorus of disapproval For now, I just hope that it gets me onto my musical path


I think you should be fine with 1st choice of guitar. Hell there are a lot worse. If you have got bigger fingers then a Les Paul fretboard will probably suit as they are generally slightly wider. The Yamaha Pacifica is a nice guitar and has a very slender neck which is probably why it's so popular with younger beginners.

The Pacifica is the one to go for. You can pick them up second hand on gumtree for peanuts. I'm raging I sold mine. Played better than the Gibson I replaced it with

I just borrowed a mexican one of my brother and also a japan 62 re-issue one of my girlfriends dad to compare the two, very similar to look at but there was a huge difference in feel when playing, the japan one felt better in so many little ways and stood out a mile and though there is about £350 worth of difference between the two I know which one I would go for every time if I could afford it.

If she wants an electric then you would probably be better off going for … If she wants an electric then you would probably be better off going for one. Although bear in mind that you would then also have to buy an amplifier.Neither an acoustic or electric are better to learn on as they are played somewhat differently. It all really depends on what style of guitar she wants to play. Acoustics are great for strumming and finger picking but if she is interested in learning to play riffs and lead guitar then an acoustic won't quite cut it. The key thing with introducing a kid to a musical instrument is that it has to excite them. If you compromise too hard on what you buy them they won't be motivated to play and improve and so what felt like a saving may actually prove to be money down the drain.Not sure what your budget is but if you do go for an electric, look at the Squier Bullet and Yamaha Pacifica 112V (not the 112J), which are supposed to be excellent starter guitars. The Squeir Bullet can be had for around £90, the Pacifica is about double that. If you check out various forums (TDPRI, strat-talk, etc) you'll be able to see how well regarded these both are, though I can't vouch for them personally as I haven't played either.Youtube and other dedicated tutorial sites have made it SO much simpler to learn to play. I played (mostly acoustic) for about 15 years and never really advanced beyond competent. But when I discovered all the online tutorials it got me more interested in playing electric and I improved more in a year than I had in the previous 15.If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me



Thanks so much this is just the help i need, just gone a bought the rocksmith game so will def need a electric one now, can you say where the best place to buy ?

They do live in a flat though, which makes me think that an acoustic may be the better bet where neighbours are concerned!



You probably can't go far wrong with either. As far as learning guitar basics goes, you can do that on either an acoustic or electric. As I say, the way I see it is it's really all about which is going to better motivate someone to play.

If this is for an adult, who works and therefore has limited time to dedicate to practice, having an acoustic to hand that they can casually pick up and have a simple strum or pick on may be just the ticket. And, yes, I'm sure the neighbours would appreciate your choice

What do you think of the acoustic / electric hybrids you can get? Would … What do you think of the acoustic / electric hybrids you can get? Would you recommend them, for the versatility, and if so do you have any particular recommendations?



It can get a bit complicated as in addition to electrics and acoustic guitars there are electro-acoustics, semi-acoustics, hollow-bodied electrical guitars, etc, etc. For the most part these are simply variations on the two main types (i.e. amplified acoustics or electrics with an acoustic resonance). Although they may add some versatility in terms of tone, they will all fundamentally play like either an electric or an acoustic.

My best advice would be to find out what sort of music the person wants to play. As in, what are their favourite bands/artists and who do they want to emulate. If that fits in more with an acoustic guitar then go for that and if it is more geared to an electric then go with one of those.

If they get really into the instrument then they will want to experiment with different guitars in the future. GAS (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome) is highly addictive, not to mention expensive - sorry parents!!

The key thing though is to make sure that they actually play whatever you initially buy them (or, indeed, that you play whatever you buy yourself). To make the instrument most accessible be sure to ask questions and make the decision together. It may ruin the surprise somewhat but if you buy the wrong thing it can actually put someone off altogether. And it is always a terrible shame when that happens because learning to play and love an instrument is a wonderful thing.

Let's hope they don't

My credit card company has deducted the extra £42.76 after I sent documents so I did get it for the original £890.38. They've said they could add it on again after further investigations though.

Yes I know this. The point being that the price on the website and my invoice are in pounds so I shouldn't have incurred the foreign transaction fee in the first place. My credit card company are still investigating it.
