anyone know of an acoustic guitar that doesnt sound like a old, dying whale puking his lungs out while farting at the same time, but is relatively cheap and good for a beginner. i figure i should start learning, to make myself more musically adept

I have played the black version of this guitar and for the price it is quite a bargain, sounds and plays great!

A great deal in my opinion. :)

"dreadnought" sounds like it might kill me, but im all for buying it!:music:

another question: will any guitar case fit any guitar

another question: will any guitar case fit any guitar Generally, I would definitely recommend a hard case, it's 1 purchase that will last a lifetime and keep the guitar in mint condition. I recommend a case made by Gator, but that's just my opinion.

Also "dreadnought" is just the body style of the guitar haha

It should, check the specs of both the guitar and the case to make sure though.

I've owned one of these for 4 years. Nice sound and volume. The tuners are smooth and don't bind. Intonation is spot on all the way tio the 12th fret (with no cutaway, I have not played it much higher than the 12th fret). I set the neck up and it's superb. I bought it originally as a throw around (I have 58 guitars), but I like so much I often pick it up first. Price does not always equal quality. Ric

I carry mine in a padded dreadnought soft case. Ric

Get a Yamaha, you can't go wrong with any of their models. They all sound and play great.

I usually recommend nylon string guitars unless someone absolutely wants a steel-string acoustic or is just a strummer.
