One of my very first guitars was a Fender acoustic back when I was 8 years old. Most of my guitar-playing foundation was laid on a beginner Fender acoustic guitar like the Fender FA-100.
Fender is a great, well-known name in the guitar-making industry. They’ve been around since the late 1930’s and although their roots are in the electric guitar, they’ve been in the acoustic guitar business for decades.
Yamaha’s APX line of guitars has been around for almost three decades, having originally set the stage for acoustic electric guitars in the 1980’s. Yamaha now continues the tradition with it’s newest version of the popular APX500 with a well-priced Yamaha APX500II. The new guitar is both affordable and sounds great.
Taylor Guitars as a brand stands tall as one of the most trusted, high-quality guitars on the market today. They manufacture great acoustic guitars, electric guitars and even some classical guitars.
How do I know? I own one (specifically the Taylor 310ce) and I love it. I wouldn’t trade it for anything and it sounds better now than it did when I first bought it.
Most beginner guitarists tend to rely on acoustic guitar tuners to help them tune their new acoustic or electric guitar. However, learning how to tune a guitar using harmonics without a tuner is a great way to train your ear.
