The good advice here is always choosing an acoustic guitar if you are a beginner guitar player. Don’t get it wrong, this rule is always having an exception.

Of course, you need to follow the good old rule of “test before buy”, translated to “invest little before make it serious”. There are zillions of options for a beginner guitar, but here’s the ones that mostly catch the eye:
