    Cheap Acoustic Guitar

    Anyone seen a cheap acoustic guitar going somewhere?
    Friend wants to learn, but have the feeling she'l put it down after 5 minutes, so dont want to spend much.
    Cheapest one i saw was £50 at argos..

    thanks!

    i've had 2 'cheap' acoustic and electric guitars from here and been really pleased with the quality and service.

    I have a brand new boxed accoustic full-size guitar available for sale, it is in my attic at the moment, bought it intending to learn how to play it and then never bothered, looking for £35.00 for it, any good ?? Sharon xx

    I would say that it's worth getting a decent guitar second-hand rather than a really cheap brand-new one. The reason is that cheap guitars can sometimes be more difficult to play (higher action on the fretboard, etc) and could actually discourage a learner and she will end up putting it down very quickly. Look at online reviews of any guitar you're considering and if you can maybe get one of the lower-end Yamaha acoustics like the F310 on Gumtree or something like that then you can't go far wrong. Good luck!
