One tip for begginers I have always use thick strings when u start out my first acoustic had really thick strings and everytime they broke I got thicker ones as time goes by you'll find bar chords very easy and will be able to play any acoustic guitar no matter the how thick the strings are

I remember that I got a £37 3/4 scale classical guitar from ebay as my first guitar and I still own it close to 10 years later. It was a Hayden Alexander...

To BUY great china guitars at Aliexpress, try this seller. I bought my guitar there. "Wuhan Justin music shop". This guy.. u can chat online with him in ENGLISH. later use wechat if you have more questions. no issues, perfect guitar - better than Martin or Taylors and the price is oh-so- reasonably-cheap. They original equipment manufacture for many major brands. I compare my China guitar for USD250, much better than original Taylors / Martins selling at 4-10times the prices. I tried it, many Americans bought from China Aliexpress. You try and see their COMMENTS.. they have original and they say it's the same or better. " Wuhan Justin music shop" - try it because I did and no regrets...Gonna buy more :) :) :)

Justin, when you got on that cheap thing it sounded like a million dollar guitar.

If your action is ever this bad just lower your tuning and play with a capo on the first or second fret. Of course this may make your frets buzz but it's a $40 guitar.

I bought a cheap Fender new from Toys-R-Us reduced to £35 after my friend bought it for her son for £80, got it home and there was one of those little plastic bridge pins missing, so she took it back and they gave her a Squire acoustic instead! So I called them up and told them I’d take it as is and they sold it for less than half price! And considering how cheap it was it was far better than the Squire they gave her! Once I fettled around with it, and set it up it plays pretty good! The action is real low and it sounds fine, way better than the boxy sounding one in this vid.

If looking for a cheap guitar try to compare it with yahama f310..... I think for a beginner it's a really solid guitar ..not exactly cheap but can hold its own against the more expensive ones.....

I started learning on a "First Act" super cheap 3/4 scale acoustic. I learned a couple chords, but it was difficult to play because of its quality. I kept having the desire to learn, but it wasn't until I shelled out $300 for a decent fender acoustic. THEN I really started to learn. Now I have a Martin, Seagull and Fender acoustics and for electric, I have a Fender Strat, Gibson Les Paul, and a couple kit guitars that I built, a few amps and a bunch of cables. I'd say get a guitar that retails for at least $300. You can get a used one for about $150. Spend $60 to have the action adjusted and learn how to change strings and condition the guitar. If after a year, it's not your thing, you're not out much and you can sell it without losing much money.

This is very good review! I accidentally tripped and fell backward against my acoustic that was sitting on its stand! Unfortunately(and sadly) i completely broke the neck! So because i loved the guitar so much and even more so because i was broke, I did the repair myself which was the first time i had ever done such a major repair! An it turned out really well! It sounded and looked great! However, over time that previous damage has started to really effect it and become a constant issue. An with my financial situation still not being the best, I've been searching for a new guitar to buy that i can get the best quality out of for the lowest price! An videos like this have been tremendously helpful! If you(or anyone) have any recommendations please share them! I'm desperate to get something to play in the meantime while i save for a new higher quality guitar. I'd rather have a cheap but decent guitar to play while saving rather than not being able to play at all!! That would be very hard because playing guitar literally saved my life at one point & brought happiness back into it!!

I made the mistake of buying a Washburn from china but when I ordered it no mention of it being a bad copy was said and I could not keep it tuned for any amount of begging the great God of guitars

The cheap guitar has got more solid bass notes than the expensive one, especially around low g. Much stronger fundamental

The high e and b string...... oh man. Sounds like it’s being played through a 1970s cutlass’ speakers that’ve been sitting in the sun. I imagine a set of strings would improve it quite a bit.

Hey! I have been learning with your website (so very helpful btw) but I also have some private lessons. I've been learning to play for a month (but practice a lot) now and started playing some songs recently too. I am using a really cheap (£50) guitar and looking to get an upgrade one for £300 - 500? Could you recommend one? I was thinking yamaha fg820, as a first okay guitar? Please help :)

dieselmupke (1 month ago)
This guitar is a bit of a surprise, it's thin sound suits the blues I think. Wouldn't recommend a guitar with a high action to beginners, that's what did set me off first time playing a guitar after buying a second hand country guitar with a tough action and steel strings, and all I thought was how I ever would enjoy playing without aching fingers. But after replacing that guitar with a modestly priced Spanish guitar the learning was much easier. Did I know about filing down the nut and buying better strings things would have been different with that first guitar, but because there was no YT in 1980...... So after filing down the nut and changing the strings (maybe for nylon ones for the absolute beginner) this guitar may be a decent student guitar.

Nice video Justin, showing the comparisons. The thing about a good quality guitar is the better you get the better it sounds. Ditto on Oletta's comments $250 to $300 is a good starting price.
J. Robertson (1 month ago)
A beginner should ALWAYS start with acoustic... (Personal opinion).. Why try and add distortion to notes you arent even properly playing yet.. Need to properly learn what a guitar is before you jump into electric.. Thats like building a house.. Without a foundation

Was the follow-up video, improving the guitar, ever put on YouTube? Would love to see if it's viable to make this suitable for a beginner, because I am new to guitar, want an acoustic, but am broke.

Personally, my first guitar was a cheap acoustic steel string, and I learned to play bach on it. It was difficult, but it made me better when I moved to nylon because my hand strength was much higher.

Some of my best years on a guitar were spent on $200> guitars; mostly because I couldn't afford anything other then that. It took me 15 years to finally get into the top shelf...and what a difference it makes. You do a great job giving that little amazon guitar a fair shake...My first guitar came out of a Fingerhut catalog.

Got my self a 150 dollar Yamaha and I’m really happy because the sound is quite good and the quality is nice and the strings are hard but as a beginner I think is good because you don’t have any strength in your fingers so you need to work hard to make it work!

Seems like they put classical body and internal padding with steel guitar neck & headstock. You can find this cheap / knockoff guitar a lot here in Indonesia. I personally don't like the sound and playability is simply bad.

It looks a little bit like a Rogue guitar. You can pick one up in a fender shop for around $60.00 or less. They are junk guitars.

Why would you recommend a new guitar player to play an electric guitar first? Serious question. I think it'd be better to play an acoustic guitar first because of the thicker neck, wider frets, and tougher strings. If they play the acoustic guitar for a while before an electric guitar, it would be easier to transition from acoustic to electric than from electric to acoustic.

Gonna check your channel, but do you have any tips on decent 3/4 guitar tars for a kid as their first instrument? Want something decent enough she will actually be able to learn on, but can't justify -$300-500 until I know she will have dedication... Was thinking Yamaha and Ibanez both make some for $125-150
bobbymalta73 (2 months ago)
So those guitars are good for begginers, or you need to buy espensive ones to learn?
Usul573 (2 months ago)
Better than nothing, but I would recommend spending at least a little more. I got this garbage one for $70 that I eventually returned and got this nice $150 Yamaha that is great. A garbage or broken one can be very frustrating. It's best to go to a Guitar store and try out a bunch. You might spend a bunch of money and time getting a cheap Guitar to work well and there was another one that sounded great first time you touched it.

Froggy Bottom didn't sound 250 times better to me. They sounded like they were in the same ballpark. Must be my cheap speakers ! Just needs a proper setup and new strings tuners nut and bridge. It's never going to be playable out of the box for 30 quid.
