    Hello guys,

    Im startin out on guitar classes next month..... I have a budget of 3k and from chennai .... what should i go for ...... I thought of a Hobmer Pick-up fitted or a givson 150d ....... where should i sapthaswara good or should i go to musee???

    i thought that buying a acoustic with a pickup would be better option later...

    I was in chennai for some four months in 2005 and found the shop named Laxman shruti the best among promusicals and other such shops.
    A nepali fellow sits there and he has a collection of very good low cost guitars like givson,hobner,signature,granada and stuff.
    Besides he will help you to decide on your guitar too.
    I have the address on ma gig bag.
    Will find it and post it by tomorrow.

    Some Hobner's really rock .. others such big time .. Some Givson's really rock .. others suck big time. Infact that's the way for all low end guitars. So I'd advise you take someone knowledgeable with you to buy the guitar.

    I recently saw a GB&A and loved it. It had a really different kinda hole on top. Rs 3500 .. see if you can get that one.

    Ya gb&a will always b a notch above hobner.And now with the split in the family manufacturing hobner guitars..the qualityz gonna degrade..thats what guitar shop owners say:think:

    ^^^ GB&A acoustics are pretty good. Granadas are a good option too :)

    Yeah, GB&A work well for a low end budget... better than the Gravson, Epephone, Yemaha, Givson and Hobners...

    Pluto > Signature > Hobner. Pluto has a guitar costing exactly 3K, it's without pickups and sounds nice. But you might want to check out a Signature. DON"T GO FOR A GIVSON or even the new Hobners.
