    ya dude,
    go for it as the gb&a is a pretty good brand name and as far as ma opinion is concerned thats one of the finest brand accoustic guitar that u can get for the price u quoted.

    so go ahead and grab it. :rock:

    Not decent.

    Whether acoustic guitar is decent or not can be ascertained only when u hear it.
    It is unlike electric guitar.

    And many a times two similar acoustic guitars from same brand will sound different.

    b.t.w. your price range is OK; in full probabiltiy, u will get a decent sounding acoustic with that.

    Consider J&D also

    I had set out to buy a GB&A in the same range for a friend and ended up buying a J&D Brothers. It all depends on the piece you play, but I played 2 of each brand and same models, and the J&D was sounding better, the frets and neck had a better feel, so do consider that too.

    By the way, GB&A is a brand owned by Bhargavas. Its made by a factory in China, and branded and marketed as GB&A by the Bhargavas. Thats not saying its not a good guitar, it is. In fact, log onto and search for guitar manufacturers in mainland China, and you'll know what I'm talking about. I have spoken with those guys, and I have come in contact with the factories that do OE for Kramer, Jackson, OLP etc. They offer the same spec guitars if you want to buy, minus the branding. You can get Floyd Rose, Duncan / EMG/ DiMarzio, gold hardware, the works. Hell, the next time I'm there, I'm going to pick one up for me. A Jackson DK1 OEM with S-S-H stock pups and Floyd Rose is USD 85 only. Check out

    PS : Those who don't agree about GB&A being a Bhargavas brand, please call Ashish Bhargava of Bandra store on 9820058480 and confirm. Also, GB&A is a good brand and good value for money!

    Hi about GB&a guitars


    I've tried GB & brothers guitar (is that the one you are refering??). It is not that good technically. Though the finishing and outer appearance is good, I'm no satisfied with it's tone and softness. If your budget is Rs.3500, you can try getting either 'Takamine' (korean company-but you get in Chennai, cochin easily) or 'Granada'. The price of these two guitars are somewhere around Rs.3500.

    Have a nice purchase. Let me know if you need more details.
