Buying the right guitar may not be an easy choice for you. It can be tiring, frustrating and sometimes you will just feel like buying the next guitar you see just so that you can stop looking for one. If you easily frustrated, you may feel like giving up the idea of learning how to play the guitar altogether.  

Everyone will have different criteria when to buy the perfect guitar. However, you may not always be able to satisfy all of them at once.

Beginners are often offered package deals in most guitar stores. These deals often give you a free guitar strap, case, tuner and even free guitar lessons. This would be a good choice for a beginner because everything you need to learn how to play the guitar is provided for.   

If you want to be a good guitarist, buying a bad guitar would not only shortchange you but it might also disillusion you and dampening your enthusiasm in learning how to play the guitar. So it is always better to buy your guitar from reputed companies such as Yamaha, Ibanez, Fender, Gibson, Ovation, Martin, and Taylor.

You need not be embarrassed to try out and play the guitar at the shop since after all, you are paying for the guitar. Do check for sloppy gluing and also make sure that the guitar has a good solid top.

Play the guitar as loudly as you want to because this is the best way of hearing the tonal quality of the music instrument. Play on every fret on the guitar neck to ensure there are no fret buzzes. This is something many aspiring new guitarists do not know. Never pay list price for a guitar because this is usually inflated, so do some hard bargaining with the sales staff.  

If buying a brand new guitar is out of your budget, you may wish to consider getting a good quality second hand guitar. This is also an option especially if you are not sure if this is just a passing fad for you or whether you will stick playing the guitar for a long time to come.

You could ask the music shops about getting good second hand guitars or you could look up classified ads, online ads and bulletin boards in the internet. So choose your guitar wisely.
