Which Guitar to Buy?

The decision of which guitar to buy is fraught with emotion, not to mention the very real impact it can have on your bank balance.

Here at the Guitar Store, we hope to guide you through the process of buying a guitar, from your initial questions about whether to go for an acoustic or an electric, through finding the best brand for you, right down to your choice of colour and accessories.

There are many factors to take into account when buying a guitar, especially if it is your first one. The key considerations in our view are:

  • What type of music do you want to play?
  • What is your budget?
  • What type of guitar “fits” you (this is all about comfort)?

If you’re a beginner looking for your first guitar, then you should check out our buying guide, which I’ll be publishing shortly and will provide a link to from the homepage.

If you have a better idea of exactly what it is that you want, I will be putting up detailed information about a wide range of guitars that you can buy also very soon.

As we revamp this website, we’ll be looking to provide the very best information, reviews and resources to help you, the guitarist research products, compare prices and get the best deals available.

It never ceases to amaze me just how much information there is out there on the on the internet about playing the guitar, buying guitars and doing pretty much anything else you care to mention with a guitar! With such an ocean of information out there, it’s very easy to be left bewildered and confused by it all, not knowing where to turn to for the best advice.

That is the inspiration for developing this site. We want to help you get the instrument you deserve without breaking the bank, because that is what will give you many years’ worth of satisfaction in your guitar playing career.

And that, my friend, will make us here at the Guitar Store very happy indeed.
