How much would a guitar cost?

I’m looking for a nylon string full sized acoustic guitar. I want a nice – ish one but not an overly expensive one. What’s a good price rang or guitar to get? Or both, that would be best! Thanks a lot, ten points for best answer.

Answer Number one said it.
Under 0 can get you a playable guitar. Just keep in mind, good , cheap, acoustics are harder to find than good, cheap electrics.
Don’t go too cheap. You can find them really cheap, but I advise against it.
An electric is upgradeable. So you can turn a 0 electric into a 0 one.
You cannot do the same with an acoustic. They are more or less impossible to upgrade. So if you really plan on playing, spend at least a little more than 0.
Try Guitar Center.

    I went pricing some around my area and some were as cheap as $150 for the guitar,extra strings,tuner. Try maybe a walmart.or best buy or even a pon shop would have some there for a good price. Hope you find one youre looking for. 🙂

    Nylon acoustics are very hard to find nowadays compared to the dreadnought acoustic, or the electric guitar. Guitar center should have them, but don’t expect a very big quantity in them. I disagree with alot of people who said in between $100 -$300. I think a good, not too cheap, but cheap range would be something like $400 – $550. Remember the saying “You get what you pay for!”

    For a good beginner’s guitar, $200 US and up. The question is, why do you want a classical (nylon string) guitar? If you want to play classical music then it’s the right choice, but if it’s because some “expert” told you it’s easier on your fingers then you’re making a mistake. A steel string guitar with light or even extra-light strings is just as easy on your fingers and it’s much more versatile.

    Good luck.

    OK I’m gonna say this one more time tonight!!
    Go to a guitar shop and tell them how much you can afford and what your looking for, they will let you try what they have in stock, and most likely let you try a few high end guitars just to get you drooling, good shops are not much more expensive than the dreaded bought it on line sight unseen hope this is what you wanted guitars I’ve seen, put it this way if your going to play guitar get cosy with your local shops, you’ll find that your happy there in business, and there appreciative for your business

    Buy a Yamaha for roughly $100 . It’s a good buy and has a good action.

  9. Instant Guitarist says:

    I’d honestly say an Ibanez GA3 would see you right, they’re around $100 new and last for years!

    For something a little more unique (and expensive) check out Mangore (in sources list).

    Also check out the instant guitarist blog for more help on buying guitars and getting started with the one you decide upon.

    About 300 bucks should be a good start. Check sam ash, guitar center, and musician’s friend for inventory. Also hit up some garage sales.
