"Congratulations. My wife bought me the same guitar for Christmas. I still prefer my classical and electric, but this is a great first guitar. Oh by the way, the more that you play, the better the guitar will sound. Something to do with breaking in…"

"Lots of good advice here, as usual in this type of thread. Like everyone says, play lots of guitars in your price range. When you're out picking a guitar, don't be surprised if one picks you..."

"Hi Cody: I have been playing for years and played many different guitars. Each one has it's own voice, feel, neck size, and radius. Play as many high end guitars as you can to see what fits your ear and hand the best. Then look for that in the…"

"Hi Cody, I am not really up on brand names etc, apart from the obvious gibsons,ibanez etc. I would recommend as a starter guitar a nylon stringed classical type guitar. The reason being is that in my experience they have a slightly wider neck and a…"

"Ditto to what Kyle and Brent have written. You can probably find a new S6 for around $300-$350 and I don't think you will find a better guitar for that price. I started with a acoustic/electric Yamaha but, to me, the S6 is a much better guitar.…"

"I agree, for the money, I have had a hard time finding anything to beat my Seagulls. They are North American made, have solid tops (higher end are all solid), and a very consistent feel. I love the idea of owning a Martin, but found that the high…"

"I recommend that you stay away from flashy-looking guitars. The money the builder spends on visual appointments is money not spent on making it a solid, good-sounding guitar. As you improve and decide to move on to something better (which you will,…"

"One thing you didn't specify is a price range. Like others have said, you should not be put-off by foreign construction. Takamine, Ibanez, Aria, Epiphone, and most everything else is made overseas. The Best (most expensive) Takamines are made…"

"Both reply's by Antonio and Michael are helpful, just make sure you are comfortable playing the guitar in the setting you will mainly play in. For example, if you are going to be sitting around on the couch playing, make sure it's…"

"It seems strange that you haven't had a reply yet, Cody. These forums are always full of people eager of giving advices in purchasing guitars. O.K. if you aim at country, the Queen of guitars for this kind of music is a dreadnought or a jumbo.…"
