How did you choose your guitar(s)?

Posted by Jo on 16th March 2018

I'm interested in how people chose their guitars. Did you use reviews, go on looks or the model used by a particular performer, try it out in a shop, or something else?

I bought my first acoustic based on online reviews of reasonable beginner's guitars as I didn't want to spend a lot when I wasn't sure that it was something I'd want to pursue and I was too worried about what people would think to go into a shop.

However, I now think that trying one out before buying might have been a smart move. So, if (when!) I buy an electric - what should I look for? What kind of thing would you try out? Should I go for the best I can afford, or stick to a lower priced model - can you tell the difference as a beginner?

Lots of questions, but interested in anyone's opinions! Thank you all,

My advice is go into a guitar shop and try a few. Don't be scared if your terrible and can only strum a bum note. You'll see what size and sound suits you best. The shop guys will probably give you a few times too. But remember they probably could make a terrible guitar sound great. But just go with your heart as it's gonna be with you a while. I'd also say get a solid top guitar too. I had my mind set on getting a Yamaha after research but after going into the shop and trying it and a few others out I went for the cort earth 70 it just sounded so much better.have fun and let us know what you go for x

This post asks why we choose guitar. It is very interesting because when we are using it we look like a model. Here you can check resume valley which give you more techniques to make their professional resume. Often we use it whenever our mode is off, which improves our mood slightly. I love guitar.
