For beginner guitar players like me, we don’t really need to get a top of the line guitar right away. We just need a cheap one that will allow me to learn the chords and the different strumming styles. Besides, in my case, I’m not even sure if I really want to get into guitar playing or making it a hobby or a passion for that matter. I just want to learn the basics for now. Whether I want to make my own music with it might be saved for later plans.
In any case, I think getting a cheap guitar will suffice for my current purpose also because it fits my budget just quite well. I know that there are plenty of discount guitars that I can get my hands on. I could even probably get a second hand guitar if I could get it a lot cheaper. The options are there for me.
