There are so many makes and models on the market, choosing your first guitar can be a bit overwhelming...
There's plenty to choose from at Normans too, but we've singled out some of what we think are the best beginner guitars - all at under £200!
The Rocket SW203 offers the best value for money, coming in at under £60! Don't let the price fool you in to thinking it's no good though - featuring Basswood back, sides and top, there's still a very nice tone to be had from it. This is the ideal beginners guitar, perfect for the musically curious or students on a budget.
The Yamaha F370 isn't their cheapest acoustic guitar, but it's certainly one of their best budget models. This features a solid spruce top, which really improves the sound and gives it a very nice tone. At under £150, this guitar really punches above it's weight limit and plays like a much more expensive model. Well worth considering.
The Tanglewood Evolution TW28 is the last stop before the guitars climb above £200 and into the more intermediate/advanced areas. Featuring a Cedar top with Mahogany back and sides, the different tonewoods used in this guitar give it a very individual tone. Benefiting from Tanglewood's expertise in the guitar market, even this budget model has the feel of something more expensive. At just over £160, this really is a steal.
Acoustic Guitar Packages
If you're just starting out, you probably won't have the bits you want and need. Thankfully, many manufacturers make guitar packages which include those 'must have' items!
The same quality guitar as above, but also including a bag, strap, strings, pitch pipe and 20 lesson CD/DVD. All for under £100!
Not quite as good as the F370 above, but certainly a contender, this guitar comes with a strap, spare strings and a lesson DVD.
