It wud be really helpful if smbdy cn pt. out the features of these guitars and the differences b/w the three.

    Dont know abt Aria, washburns are good but check with others too, yamaha have good practice guitars so should be good. add fender to it, you can hold on with it for a long time even after you get the basics and getting more serious with guitar playing and will fit most kings of will be a good buy as well as a great guitar for the future too. so think.

    I tried a Yam at Furtados Pacifica it was I guess .. Didn't like it .. Maybe it was the laney amp to be blamed but I donno .. I've kinda lost interest in Yam .. Go for Squire ..

    Yamaha seems the best option to me, its known for having quite good 'beginner' guitars.
    Aria is alright, not sure about the new models, but my old aria is pretty good.

    No idea on the washburn tho...

    Stick to your acoustic for a few more months and then go for a Strat Squire.

    Aria XL STD - rs 9000 - SSH pups, good for beginners
    Washburn X10 - rs 8500 - SSH pups - pretty good one, you can go for it
    Yamaha Pacifica 012 - SSH - (pickups not as good as PAC-112)

    Yahama is good but......go for an other 1.....dont go 1st with begginers go for pro first then gradually you will learn the basics .........and it saves more money ..cuz you wont need to buy a pro guitar or amp afterwards.............

    Cells are smaller than Brains .............Yet more powerful ......
    Get the powered ones first .......think later...........
