There's a plethora of options when you're looking for an affordable acoustic guitar to start playing on. This is not necessarily good news, many beginners can feel overwhelmed enough just learning that acoustic guitars come with steel or nylon strings. One option definitely worth a look whether or not you've decided to go down the steel folk route, is this, the Takamine G320. There's no airs and graces about this guitar, and nothing to befuddle you, it's an honest to goodness dreadnought with a spruce top and mahogany back and sides, all pretty standard fare. It offers excellent value for money, and is very comfortable to play, quite a big beast, but a nice slim neck, an easy reach around for most fingers. As for the sound, imagine a chorus of heavenly angels singing Gloria, and you'll have some idea. Available from new at Wunjo Guitars, don't hesitate to email or phone if you would like more info.
