    Hi all,

    I am looking for new steel string acoustic hollow guitar, from previous disscussions available on this fourm(s) I have figured out that Hobner-265 is a good option, but what is the price and availability of this brand in pune, is not clear to me.

    Any ideas about this Or if there are some sibling alternative of this brand

    please help me out!

    hi deveshs,

    Yea according to me hobner 265 is a good option for beginners... I too bought a couple of weeks ago from S.B.Stores malad. Im dont have any idea of its availability in pune. Its a nice acoustic guitr to get your hands on quickly. It comes at a retail price of Rs. 3000/-

    Other options include Givson and Ibaneez. But according to shop owner and a music teacher from whom i had inquired I went for hobner 265. You can even get a smaller sized Hobner model for about Rs.1800 but its a 12 fret modell..whereas hobner 265 is a 15 fret model. I would suggest u go for hobner 265 :)

    When going for acoustics..go and play all of them..take the one which sounds good to you(or if you dont trust your ear take someone knowledgable along)..coz there is large variability in the sounds of even the same models.....ofcourse look at the build quality too..generally I have found Hobner and Signature to be better than careful with those Chinese ones: some of them dont have truss rods and neck warp can occur over time..
