By the way I am looking for acoustic guitars only. I am a right-handed and my fingers are pretty average not long and all.. so a standard guitar size would be quite good.
They might have something used that feels OK in your hands in your budget, too, which might save you money or give you more selection. And used might get you a guitar that was properly set up, but probably not - I don't think a lot of people want to spend more money on an entry level guitar. A good set up can mean the difference between quitting in frustration or enjoying playing. (Set ups are things like adjusting the neck so it's straight and filing the bridge and nut so the strings are at the proper height.) Not sure what a set up would cost for you, the luthier charges me $35 here.
I can't stand the necks on Ibanez guitars, for example. I just don't like the thin necks. I like a thicker neck. I just bought a Fender Stratocaster. I started looking with a certain model in mind, but after trying lots of different models I ended up buying one that was quite a bit cheaper because it felt better than any of the others.
A decent first hand guitar would go for about 150 pounds, in my opinion. Many beginners quit very quickly when they see the effort involved in playing, while they only want the rewards. This means there are a lot of beginner guitars available very cheap second hand. I would suggest trying to buy one second hand if you're really on a budget. One of the models worth checking out is a Yamaha FG700-S/FG720-S.
It's important as a beginner to not get discouraged. This means that your sound has to be normal, and the instrument can't be horrible to play. Even if you did press on, you'd have to get rid of it to get a proper instrument and no one would buy yours. Money might be very tight, but I'd suggest saving unless you can find a Yamaha/Epiphone/Fender/Takamine second hand in your price range. There are many other good guitars, but it's very difficult for a beginner to separate the good ones from the bad ones. I'd suggest looking at the "Guitar lessons" tab, at the "Buying a guitar" lessons.
The price point you're aiming at is so low...you're better off waiting and saving your money.
If you decide to go ahead now, shop in person, not online. The quality control on an item that 'inexpensive*' will vary wildly from guitar to guitar.
*It's only inexpensive if you end up using it. If you throw it in the closet 2 weeks from now, it was expensive.
Yep...do this and 50 quid's easy!
Second hand is a good way to go, you do pay a bit of a premium for a new guitar. Though you probably do want to check you're not buying a really cheap one second hand. People say nice things about the Yamaha starter acoustics, but I've never tried one. I've got a Ibanez V50, which is playable, though I did get a setup done on it. Also the extras aren't very good (fixed tuning microphone tuner, un-padded bag), except for the strap (it's a strap). Look for a company that actually makes instruments.
