    Yes, I would be buying a new guitar very soon. I am kind of a novice and would like to know what guitar, shop I should buy?
    I am about 5'10", would like to get a guitar for self-entertainment and learning western rock. I just want to learn acoustic guitar expertly before I buy a Metal Guitar.
    What kind of acoustic guitar(all details or whatever possible like fretboard, strings, back, body etc.) I should buy?I can spend about 6K.

    I would be very pleased if someone could reply soon.

    Shop.. depends where u live...
    Guitar.. Anything should do for learning.. Get your basics right and then buy something good once you are comfortable with the instrument.

    There is a sticky on the Beginner's Q&A Forum.. right on the top .. check it out!

    And your height has nothing to do with what guitar you buy.. its not the same as pants!!!!

    I thought having longer arms required some other size of guitar?

    No. Long hands, short hands.. doesn't really matter.

    ^^ gotta agree with them. I was like, why the hell he telling us about height!!

    Im 5 4 .. i can still play. I got relatively small hands.. (not like the branchy kind most guitarists have) and i still play damn well.

    its like me saying, "im female. what kind of guitar can i buy!?"

    But more seriously..any guitar should work now.. you just need to learn your basics and get comfy with it.. so dont bother looking into particulars...just yet.

    i suggest you buy a normal semi-acoustic for around 2~3k and buy an amp probably 15w practice amp...for fun :) gives you a boost in spirits if you can play what you like me

    1) Yamaha
    2) GB&A
    3) Pluto
