Many beginners are worry about buying the first guitar. They don't know how to choose from different guitars, and they are afraid of buying a guitar that is not suitable for them or has problems.
The following five points can help you understand the guitar better and let you avoid these tragedies as much as possible.
1. Purchase budget
There are beginners who are afraid of learning soon, so don't buy more expensive guitars, but a good guitar can accompany you for a long time. Everyone's financial ability is different, so the budget is also different. It is recommended to set a maximum affordable budget before purchasing the guitar you need.
Generally speaking, guitars of about $1500 HKD have relatively stable quality in the current market.
It is not recommended to buy a particularly cheap guitar, because sometimes the lack of product quality monitoring can lead to different problems: panel deformation, lifting of the bridge, deformation of the neck, etc.
2. Body size and appearance (shape)
Is the size of the guitar suitable for your body?
There are many sizes of guitars to choose from. For taller friends, it is relatively reasonable to use a larger guitar.
Do you feel comfortable with the height of the string pitch and the feel of the string pressing?
If you get a guitar that is too big or too small, it will be uncomfortable to play. In order to avoid this problem, you can refer to the following suggestions and make a more appropriate choice when your budget is limited.
