What's a good quality acoustic guitar that is good for a beginner? I keep seeing articles that talk about whether this guitar or that guitar is for beginners. I guess I'm just not sure what the difference is between a beginner and a non-beginner guitar. Is it simply a higher price due to higher quality or is there something else to it?

As long as you can tune the guitar, the brand doesn't matter. Since your skill level is still basic, a basic guitar will do just fine.

You don't need anything fancy. I wouldn't go too cheap either though. I think that Yamaha has some great acoustic guitars that are relatively budget-friendly.

You should check out Justin Guitar's tutorial about choosing the right guitar for you as a beginner. It breaks down a lot of different elements and lets you know what the differences are between guitar types and, most importantly, it answers your question about the differences between a beginner guitar and guitars for higher skill levels.

I'm also a beginner guitar player. My brother has a guitar at home that he is playing. I like to learn how to play classical guitar. He said that his guitar is good only for strumming and not so much with plucking. Is there really a difference which type of guitar we use for a specific type of playing the guitar?

I am planning to buy a guitar for my brother and I was wondering which one I should pick. I tried to follow the link that Leonardo shared, but it took me to an expired page. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thank you.

The Takamine GD20-NS is a real bang for the buck... Acoustic Guitar mag reviewed it a few months ago, gave it high marks across the board, and called it a "steal" at that price. They recommended it for the beginner and the more advanced player who just wants a really good guitar around the house that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Are Japanese guitars still a thing? The Boss started out with one that his mom bought him for Christmas.

I'm sure the big brand names would have beginner guitars in their inventory.
