    3k will not get you an excellent guitar, the best is to take someone (if you know anyone) that knows somethign about guitars and go to a guitarshop and play some guitars and talk honestly with the person your taking so that he/she can help decide for you the best guitar possible.

    As a starter i would recommend getting an acoustic guitar. But again take someone who knows a bit about guitars and go to the shop.

    Also state where you live because someone from here may be able to help you out if you live local to them

    I would suggest you to buy an acoustic first... An average acoustic guitar should not be very expenisve. If you have found yourself a teacher, ask him/her to go with you to the music store and find a guitar for you.

    @ Naina..Welcome aboard...

    To buy a beginners acoustic..3K is pretty decent budget...
    u can have hobner or a signature with that kind of money..give and take 500 bucks...
    I am a proud owner of Hobner and that is 3500rs...

    But ...Go to the shop with an experienced person..newbies can easily be fooled when it comes to purchasing guitar...

    and dont forget to inform the forum..which guitar u bought..

    Enjoy and have fun here..
