Top acoustic guitars for beginners

Top acoustic guitars for beginners

The guitar is a great hobby for anyone of any age to pick up. Many songs are just a collection of simple chords that can be easily taught. By practicing those songs regularly, guitarists can eventually move up to more difficult chords, and thus more experienced songs. Some guitars are geared towards people just picking up the instrument. Here are some top guitars for beginners.

Seagull S6 Entourage Acoustic Guitar

This is a solid, top of the line acoustic guitar. The S6 Entourage boasts a super comfortable slim neck and a solid cedar top, which makes it easy to handle and maneuver. It is an absolutely breath-taking guitar.

The finish is a deep, rustic burst, honey toward the center, almost chocolate at the edges, and has the rich red cedar shining through it all. The finish is thin enough to allow guitarist’s tonewood to naturally age, getting better and better over time.

Washburn D10S

Washburn is known for manufacturing high-quality, long-lasting guitars. It is marvelously crafted with a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides for the best tone. Fretwork is a breeze with the mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Chrome Grover-style machines keep the guitar perfectly tuned. The Washburn D10S comes with a limited lifetime warranty. A great guitar for those just starting to play.

Yamaha FG700

The FG700S Folk Acoustic Guitar is a great beginner’s acoustic guitar with top of the line features including die-cast tuners, solid Sitka spruce top, and a rosewood fingerboard. It has a black and white body binding. It is lightweight and easy to play.

Epiphone DR-100

A nicely crafted acoustic that features a spruce top and mahogany body and neck, this instrument epitomizes Epiphone’s focus on guitars that are inexpensive yet high quality. It comes with chrome hardware, precision construction, and rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. It is as beautiful as it is easy to play.

Accessories for Beginner Guitarists

Obviously the most important ingredient in learning how to play the guitar is actually purchasing a guitar, but there are other things which will make the process of learning significantly easier. A tuner, which will make sure the strings have the proper tightness, thus producing the perfect pitch, is a great investment for early players.

Chord books can be very helpful for those who have no knowledge of guitar playing. There are also guitar chord books that have songs targeted for people just learning to play guitar, with simple chords and simple progressions. A carrying case is also very helpful for transport.
