    Good evening everyone,

    I'm new to guitars and i'm a newbie and i need help on buying my first guitar. Help please.
    I would also appreciate info on the price and the amount i should spend on it. Also i need to know where in Chennai is the best shop with the best prices. :)
    ( i know i'm asking a lot, hey! i'm a newbie :p)

    How much CAN you spend?
    What music do you play/want to play?
    Do you think you're going to seriously keep playing or is it a passing fancy?

    (Welcome! I'm Rasik and i'll do my best to help.)

    It depends....

    Hi der Rasik,

    Well, it doesnt matter if its acoustic or electric.

    I prefer to spend depending on the price on the catalog :p. I'm a beginner, suggest one a beginer should use.

    i don get u, what do you mean " What music"....( btw, i'm new to the instrument itself.)

    Yes i'm seriously going to play, but not as a professional guitarist, an ardent guitarist maybe.... :)

    I'd say get a nice acoustic.
    (There's a pluto on Bajaao for 6k - semi acoustic + EQ)

    By what music, i meant what styles of music do you like?
    Classic rock/country/rock/alt/metal/indian music etc
    Unless its metal, acoustic is a good start.

    If you buy an electric, you'll need an amp, pedals/processor etc. No need for that right now.
    So i say:
  5. distorted

    distorted satan

    or if u know sumbdy who has got sum experience, go to sum reputed musical store, try u few acoustics, pik up the one which suits u, i mean u feel comfortable with... Chk out fr the bridge, action, fretboard... U can a rly gud acoustic in 4-5k... Dat will be rly gud to start wid...
    Actually i doubt bajaao fr sending their goods, especially delicate things like this, over a distance, safely... They dont take any responsibility fr courier services, i suppose, so better option is piking it up urself+ u'll be sure that u feel comfortable wid the guitar...
  6. distorted

    distorted satan

    As you r in chennai, try musee musicals or saptaswara...

    distorted (dude what your real name?) has a point.
    Dont get the acoustic delivered.
    Chennai has some great music shops, and my cousin just picked up that same guitar from some shop there, so i suggest you do the same.
  8. distorted

    It's just weird calling you "distorted" all the time.
    I'm Rasik btw...

    Alryt rasik... But i'll prefer being called distorted... Actually sameer doesnt sound like my name to me (i dont kno why). Nehow, so is distorted, but being here distortd is ok, sameer sounds a bit cute.
