Where can I find a good, cheap guitar in Singapore. 666 May 9th, 04, 08:02 PM #1
Well I don't even know how to play a guitar, but I wish to learn. It's always good to learn another skill right? So now I want a good, cheap acoustic guitar, preferably for less than $200. I'm sure someone here will know where.

for begineer , its seems pretty obvious he is after a classical guitar---- he may not know the diff between the rest you ahad mentioned.

think classical are the cheapest among all types and its the basis for learning all others ( except for electric ....)

wah i talk as if can play like a pro,.... but i can't ....... hee... gave up learning ages ago.... those strings hurt my fingers....

haha. ya lo. metal strings painful. nylon strings more gentle on fingers. but the classical neck is wider, so have to stretch fingers more to play. folk guitar narrower neck, so easier to press. :p

From what I heard is that, electrics are better than acoustics for beginners.
Is that true, otherwise I settle for the electric. Distortion is just freaking cool.

and the neck is small too
