    Looking for a Beginners Guitar?

    Right i want to try learning guitar, i did buy a second hand one off a friend and it wasn't particularly good, it didn't tune properly and the strings were so far from the fret board it made it really hard for me to learn. Since i have had ago on one of my friends newer and it was much easier to play. Cause im not amazing and dont no how long ill last my budget is a hundred quid. I hope i should be able to get something alright for this?

    Also if anyone noes of any good instructional vids that would be cool. Ive seen this on ebay but i really dont no anything about guitars

    cgi.ebay.co.uk/HUD…307

    Seems alright cause it comes with videos as well

    so any help would be great thanks

    lots of tutor video's on Youtube for free as well!

    Second hand guitars from a music shop is always worth a look, you get to try before you buy. Just because its been scratched and used, doesn't indicate it wont play well and sound great. Its easier to lower the action on a good guitar, generally the neck and truss rod are more responsive.

    Yes that's true and i have several second hand guitars but i find most beginers love the "new" guitar feel but i do suggest getting them set up well.

    A good guitar/music shop should help or one thing you could try is to see if there are any local night classes- cheap and fun and you learn the basics with people like you and of course setup is part of the course!
