5 Great Guitars to Get Started On!

Is It Time To Start Playing Guitar?

As it is said, the journey of 1000 miles starts with the first step, and whether you are looking to go on tour or just play guitar in your living room if you are ready to take the first step we have some great guitars for you to check out. 

To keep with the walking metaphor, before you step, you will need to put on your shoes, and in the world of guitar, that is deciding if you want to start on an acoustic or an electric guitar. 

For many people, this boils down to two questions. The first is, who do you want to sound like? If your favorite songs are all acoustic-based songs, then the acoustic is right for you. If, on the other hand, you want to rock 'n' roll all night (and party every day!), then you may be disappointed trying to mimic those rock sounds with just an acoustic. 

The second question is logistics. If you live in an apartment or condo where you may not have the luxury to turn up an amp, then the acoustic guitar may be a better choice. 

Regardless of if you decide an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar is your 1000 mile journey, we have some great beginner guitars for you to check out.

So without any further ado, let's take a look at 5 great guitars for beginners.
