HI all, i'm about to start guitarin'.. But i need a guitar first :(

but i need help from the myriad list of guitars out there, From your knowledge in this field, recommend me the best one by looking at the price-value ratio at the beginners perspective..

I created a list of the best possible deals out there for me..

Yamaha F310 (Guitar only) - Rs9000/150$ Online&Physical Store
Yamaha F310 with cherub gt3 preamp fitted USED - Rs5750/91$ Online
Fender FA-100 Used - Rs5000/80$ Online
Fender FA-100 New - Rs8000/127$ Online&Physical Store
Ashton D25 (Full package-gig etc) - Rs9000/150$ Online
Ashton D20 (Full Package-gig etc) - Rs8000/127$ Online
Yamaha C40 -Rs7000/111$ Online
Cort AD810 USED - Rs6000/95$ Online
Washburn Oscar Schmidt Spruce OG3NL -Rs9000/150$ Online

Additional questions..

Should i avoid buying USED guitars as a whole?? is it worth it, as i dont know how to check them..

I heard that buying guitars from physical stores are much better because THEY will tune the truss rod adjustment and saddle-fine tuning (whatever that means :P), is it so...??

Is the gig bag or whole package thing necessary??
Also the only friend i can ask for help in this area, is out of town, so i cant take him with me to buy the used one..

Im all alone in this one, and i cant afford to make a bad purchase which can ruin my learning experience.

Thanks..

As you seem a complete beginner my recommendation is to go to a guitar store (or several guitar stores), they will help you by selecting the best option for your budget.

Generally Yamaha makes very nice entry level instruments. It's a good starting point.

Good luck!

I agree with Nuno. visit a store. the best way by far. look, touch, feel, play the guitars they have. don't be afraid to ask questions. a guitar and a case or gig bag is all you need.
my favorite guitar found me when I strolled around a guitar store.
