What kinda guitar should i get if just beginning to learn to play?

ok so its my bday sunday, and i want to a guitar (thinking both electric/acoustic in one is that a good choice) i already have someone whos goin to teach me to play. What should the price range be, i dont want smthing too cheap and smthing so expensive b/c just beginning? Thanks in advance!

Chosen Answer:

You should get the best guitar you can afford it will make practicing and playing a lot easier and enjoyable. (Get an electronic guitar tuner too!) If you can afford it, I’d suggest a dead-on copy of a Martin acoustic guitar called BlueRidge. This one can be had for less than 0 and if you stop playing and just put it in the closet, it will go up in value over the years. They play and sound absolutely fantastic. Forget about cheap acoustics with built-in electric circuits because they always sound tinny. Don’t worry about amplifying your acoustic until your playing improves. I own a BR-160 that I bought few years back it’s worth hundreds more today.

Here’s the official description of it, notice that it is not made of plywood as most under 00 acoustic guitars are. The wood that it is made of gives it a fantastic sound.

Blueridge BR-43 Solid Top “000” Guitar
The BR-43 delivers super-traditional sound and feel with a modern look and low price. Even at this price point, these guitars are crafted with a solid spruce tops, hand-carved braces, mahogany backs and sides, and have a traditional dovetail neck joint usually found on more expensive instruments. It has beautiful pearl inlay work on the headstock and a 000-sized body and slim mahogany neck making it easy to play.

    If your just learning, an electric guitar should be a max of $100 because you need some more money for a amp.
    I would suggest an electric with a fairly small amp(15 watt) so your able to play rock in distortion and other in clean. I would say you should spend a max of $200 for a guitar and amp.
