Which guitar is best for beginners?

Here’s one of the top questions I get asked daily. “Which guitar is best for beginners?
There are three things to consider:
– Brand
– Type
– Size
Brand: Now, I personally play Taylor Guitars. However, beginner guitarists don’t need to play this level of guitar stright out of the gate. But if you want to stretch to something really special I would wholeheartedly recommend their range. I’ve enjoyed their brand for over 9 years!
There are some great beginner brands online… check out the website  Gear For Music to pick up something cost-effective, playable and with a good warranty.

Type: I personally recommend purchasing an acoustic guitar. These are different to classical guitars, and much easier to play – but you can learn on both!

My top tip to you is to Google an image of both so you can see the difference in body shapes!


Size: This is an important one… I share all the details on a recent blog: Click here for THE size guide!


I hope this information helps to give you a better basic understanding of what you’re looking for. If you’re interested in online guitar lessons with me and you are looking to purchase a guitar, I can help: send me a message!
