Buying a Guitar

Buying a guitar can be an intimidating experience, particularly if you aren’t yet a proficient player. How can you choose the right instrument if you can’t even play it? But, the fact of the matter is there are some practical techniques you can use in selecting and buying an affordable instrument.

This chapter outlines some basic buying strategies that will work for you. These include preshopping tips: distinguishing among different types of guitars (drawing on the information from Chapter 2), fitting an instrument to your body type (and style of music), a brief overview of the common guitar brands, and whether to buy from a local music shop or by mail order.

Even if you could afford to own Eric Clapton’s Stratocaster—and generally speaking you should buy the best guitar you can afford—you may have to be practical. This means buying a guitar . . . that won’t empty your savings account. This chapter shows you how.
