    Hi guys, this is my first post. Nice forum with lots of info.

    Guys, I need help. I just sold my electric guitar (which was with my about 7 years!) and want to buy some best acoustic guitar. But the problem is, I never been on acoustics. I DONT WANT electra acoustic, but ONLY PURE ACOUSTIC.
    The budget is Rs. 4000 and in two weeks I am going to New Delhi on some official work. So, planning to buy there (assuming that I can get better one for low price than in my city - Vizag, A.P). And I wish I could get cardboard box too with it.

    Need help friends, with info on Best brand, comes within budget and Best store in Delhi.
    Somewhere I read about Bhargava's 'Sticker Problem' and Found no low price on website of 'Bharat music house'.

    If I recall correctly, in Vizag there were only two shops that used to keep guitars (and that too only GiVson and other similar makes).

    So you will definitely get more choice in Delhi.

    Since you would already by knowing how to play guitar - just play the ones at the shop and listen to the tone, playability etc.
    You can make your own decision.

    In delhi you can check up Onstage in Lajpat nagar - OnStage Music Factory
    Pretty convenient from anywhere in Delhi.

    I agree with u Alpha ... Merog, go to either Furtado's or OnStage in Lajpat Nagar
    They have a great range of acoustic guitars and u should probably get a suitable one there
    Also, u can check out Yamaha in Lajpat Nagar

    That's true, but d Yamaha F310 is a gr8 model in the 5-5.5k range
    And a guitar isn't bought too often, so I suggested it
    Ultimately, it's his own choice

    @ harmonizer, alpha 1, tapas.perti : Brothers, thank you very much. And little more-

    I am neither beginner nor advanced. I am somewhere around intermediate. And I wanted this guitar to be really good one. So, any suggestions of brands with good material and things like narrow neck etc, within the budget range?
    And any suggestions of material like wood (laminated or non-laminated etc)?

    I said it earlier - use your ears and fingers to determine whether the guitar is meant for you or not.
    Yes, I know it sounds like Zen and abstract - but that's how everything in life is.
    Laminated, non-laminated, truss rod, non truss rod, glued neck, bolted neck, nylon string, phosphor bronze strings, scooped frets, flat fretboard, curved fretboard, jumbo frets, normal frets - everything is a matter of personal taste and choice

    Or you can check out Plutos and Yamahas. I don't think other brands like Takamine will be in your budget.

    Guys, its done. After a long enough research, and kind suggestions from all of ya, am finally going for YAMAHA, any model (F,FS or L) which ever fits my budget. Thanx guys, but only question now is-
