Recomend me a decent low priced classical guitar.

Post by Gchord » September 1st, 2010, 6:42 pm

The more I pick up my Yamaha Apex classical,the more I want a true full size classical guitar. Some that have caught my attention,one a Yamaha for $139.It doesn't need to be a solid wood or even a solid top.What it does need is to be a full size classical.My Apex is a thin body with cutaway,and the fretboard/nut is thinner,almost dreadnaught size.I want the wide fretboard/nut size at least 2",may be a little more if I can find one in my price range. Looking between $100-$300.I'll be looking around tomorrow.Any suggestions will be appriecated. Thanks.

Admira make excellent student guitars - I have two, one of which I use for teaching

Alhambra also make excellent kit. I use an Alhambra 4P on stage

Both companies make a range of guitars from beginner to concert level. You can't go wrong with either.

Hello, Alhambra 4P is one of the best selling classical guitar from Alhambra Guitars, so it is a good choice for semi professional guitarists.. However we recommend beginners to start with a Student Series guitar, such as Alhambra 1C or Alhambra 3C. If you have any question about Alhambra models, we will be happy to provide all info needed.

I have an Alhambra 4P - it's got a nice light sound but and I use it professionally to play weddings or whenever I need to sound seriously good.

Also good - Admira guitars. They're comparably priced and sound good. I use them at weddings too

Ask your local guitar shop - they should be able to get one for you; they may even have some on the rack that you can try.

Admira, Yamaha or Alhambra

I've taken my first lessons on an Alhambra guitar, I can confirm it's a solid choice for a beginner who's short on budget.
