So, do you want to buy your first guitar, but have no idea what to look for, which brands to trust and how much to spend on it? No worries, here you’ll find everything you need, in order to head to your local shop and finally purchase one.

Let’s start with top 5 acoustic guitars for beginners in 2018;

Taylor Academy A12e

This must be the most recognized model Taylor guitars have ever made. It is also worth mentioning that it’s not really your average beginner / entry-level guitar, it’s more of a premium model. But then again, what else could we expect from Taylor, if not prestige?

The only downside is obviously the price, but we really recommend this one if you can really afford it. Otherwise just look at some other recommended guitars, but also check out this whole list, as it’s really made of the good stuff!


Seagull S6

No long explanation needed here. Ask any guitarist and when they recommend you some guitars, this one will definitely be mentioned. Although the price is a bit high on this one too, it is worth every penny, and some would argue that you even get more than what you’re paying for.

Made in Canada, Seagull S6 is dressed to impress every guitar player, not only beginners, but also professionals who really know their craft.


Yamaha FG830

Yamaha is not only known for their premium models, but also for their entry-level guitars. They realized that they need to offer some cheaper models as well, instead of just producing guitars for elite players. Because of that, FG830 found its way on to that list, and thank God it did, as any beginner would be very lucky to own this piece of art.


Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat

For those of you who are looking for something different, not just a typical budget-friendly guitar. Its design really stands out from the crowd – it features mahogany top (we personally love it) and back and sides too.

The sound is awesome as well, which is exactly what you’d expect from a Fender guitar.
