What Should my Budget be for a New Guitar?

If you think about it, the phrase “budget guitar” is actually quite confusing. Whose budget are we talking about here? What you consider “budget” may feel like a fortune to me…or vice-a-versa.

This idea of a budget guitar also doesn’t really take into consideration what you really need. Is this a guitar you need to play on stage? Do you just need something small for traveling? Are you just starting out and don’t want to spend too much on a hobby you’re not sure you’ll like?

In my opinion, your answer to these questions completely changes what a budget guitar would be for you. So instead of searching Google for the term “best budget guitar”, I suggest you stop for a moment and change your focus.
