So you’ve probably heard of Taylor Guitars before. Either that or you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere for the past few decades! With a firm reputation of producing high-quality, high-priced guitars, it’s no wonder that Taylor took a PR beating when they first introduced the Taylor 100 series “budget” acoustic guitars to the market.
Among beginner acoustic guitars, the stands out as a consistent favorite among guitarists.
Perhaps much of this has to do with the price tag, which at around $250 is an excellent deal, but I believe most of its popularity is due to the loud, clear sound that it produces.
Years after Taylor Guitars found great success with the introduction of their Baby Taylor and Big Baby Taylor guitar lines, Bob Taylor (head of the guitar-maker) decided to challenge his team to improve upon the idea with the development of an even better mini-sized guitar. Thus was born the Taylor GS Mini.
If you’re looking for a beginner classical guitar, you’ve probably already heard some good things about the Takamine EG124C. Takamine is a brand that has stood the test of time and the EG124C is a guitar that has consistently pleased beginner and intermediate guitarists alike.
