So your ready to learn guitar. But there’s only one thing holding you back. You need to buy an acoustic guitar on a budget. That’s a very common scenario so here at the London guitar school we have listed a below some great guitars to help you get started.
Rated by The Guitar Magazine in their end of year review as “Guitar of the Year” their review compares the Vintage V300 with guitars two or three times the price. Their review of the Vintage V300 says: “Outside of toy town, guitars don’t come much cheaper than the Vintage V300.
But dismiss any notions of tat, because this little concert acoustic is stonkingly good worthy of comparison with instruments two or three times the price.
The Mahogany-backed Vintage V300 boasts a solid spruce top and the tidy cosmetics include a white bound fingerboard, multi-ply body binding and a well buffed gloss finish. It even manages to load in a decent set of die-cast machine heads.
As well as benefiting from a comfortable, fast playing neck, the Vintage V300 delivers the sonic goods too. Even-handed picking clarity is the message, plus good dynamics and volume from the parlour-esque body. At this money, go buy. Every home should have one.
