    Hello everyone.I m from chennai.Am a beginner with guitars.I want to buy a beginner acoustic guitar.My budget is max 7000(only for the guitar and i'll add 2000 more for the accessories).
    I went to saptswara musicals,laxman shruthi and yamaha music square.but i am not able to decide which guitar to buy.
    As per the reviews on the internet i am thinking to buy a "YAMAHA F-310"...every shop has the same price tag of 6900...
    also in saptswara i saw some "PLUTO" and "GB&A" guitars in the range of 3500 to 4000...im confused wheather to go for yamaha or a cheaper one like pluto...
    also can i bargain on the yamaha price tag???
    what is the reputation of saptswara musicals in terms of genuiness of their products and their prices???
    All your suggestions are welcome...Please help...
    Thanks in advance

    Go for Yamaha F310, you wont be disappointed.
    When I got my Yamaha Acoustic (F210). I had its action little bit high, didn't knew about it for a year or so. But once I realized I got it fixed, it's very smooth to run fingers.
    Moreover it's a jumbo size guitar and not everyone would agree with the sound but it has got a great built.

    hey da...... as u r a beginer i wont suggest u for higher end guitars.... go for pluto and gb&a jd brothers.......these guitars are gud and economical....they cost around 5k max......yamaha and ibanez cost around 7 to 8 k.....the only thing u need to keep in mind is ,u need to check the guitar b4 buying....check each and every fret by playin them....if sound tone is clean go for it......if some buzzing sound comes dun choose it.....check if the fretboard is straight......and check the bridge action height too.....go for a jumbo guitar alwaz...they sound gud and clean.....

    all d best dude!!!!

    Acoustic guitar

    Go for either Yamaha F310 or for Pluto guitars ... Both are superb in quality and the price will be well within your budget ... Have fun :)

    I play the pluto 41C (3800) and I love the sound..bt let me warn you, that has a high action, and it cannot be reduced..no matter whoever says what..
    and Yamaha is awesome..
    pluto is a little challenging to play barre chords nd stuff..so if u master that on a pluto(although it WILL be harder to play in a pluto), playing on any other guitars will be a piece of cake
    so if u want to be very good, and a little bored: PLUTO
    and if u want to be good, but have LOTs of fun: Yamaha

    and you dont need 2000 for accessories..acoustic guitars are 'pick up and play' you can get a tuner for rs. 200, bt i suggest to tune using your ears..that way u will get better faster..
