    Hello forum members.
    Am keen in learning Guitar and would like to buy an acoustic guitar between a range of Rs.3000 to Rs.4500.
    I stay in Mumbai and i have heard about shops like Furtados & Bhargavas. Are they the best place to buy a guitar or there are any other shops.

    Which company's guitar should be purchased and would be best.
    Are the guitars already tuned up when we purchase it.
    Waiting for a reply.
    Thanking all members.

    1.Furtados Or Bahrgava ............. Ask Guitarists from Mumbai ...... Am From Chennai ........ As far as these shops are concerned both of them must be good as i have seen threads where ppl buy from furatdos as well as Bhargavas ............

    2. Mxd 010 comes only in Natural (atleast thats what the furtados catalogue says ..)

    Download the catalogue off this link :
