As Arthur Schopenhauer once said, “Music is the food of the soul”. As the generations keep growing apart from each other, trapped in the world of rectangular screens, perhaps music is the only string that binds their soul together.
Whenever we talk about music, perhaps the first thing that comes to our mind is a guitar and its soulful rhythm. And in case you are a musician, or even closely associated with music, there is no way that this thought hasn’t crossed your mind at least once or twice. It is necessary to have the proper instrument to create magic with music, and acoustic guitars are, without any doubt, one of the best means to help you do so.

Frequently asked questions
Ans. The simple answer is acoustic guitar, as it is harder to play and will build your fingers and hands to easily play the guitar and once you’re all set then you can shift to electric guitar, moreover acoustic guitar sounds natural and bright. If you really want to play the guitar with an amplifier at the beginning itself then you can consider a semi-acoustic guitar.
Ans. Considering the reputations built over the years, amazing quality, price and diversification of the products the best guitar brands according to me are- Ibanez, a Japanese company founded in 1957, Fender, an American manufacturing company founded in 1946, Gibson, again an American company founded in 1902, Yamaha a Japanese multinational corporation founded in 1887 and Epiphone an American musical instrument manufacturer founded in 1873.
Ans. If you’re just starting to play guitar then you should definitely not consider this question as the difference between cheap and expensive guitars is mostly in the sound quality and durability. The difference in the sound quality is negligible and can only be seen(actually heard) by advanced players and although cheap guitars are not that durable they are with you for a minimum period of 1 year which is enough to learn the basics and even some advance stuff, so if you don’t have that budget, don’t push your pocket to purchase an expensive guitar just for this little difference that you don’t even need as a beginner.
