Answers to the top questions asked by beginner guitarists.
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.
