recommended guitar

My 13 yr. old daughter is interested in learning to play an acoustic guitar. What instrument do you recommend for a beginner? There are so many, I am overwhelmed.

Re: recommended guitar

Takamine or Yahama are ok. Some of thier guitars are on the price range between $300 - $400. Have fun getting one!

Re: recommended guitar

I love my Ibanez "performance," lots of guitar for your money. $350 will get you all the same quality you'd pay a lot more for in a bigger name.

Re: recommended guitar

I usually recomend a "Samick" acoustic for a first guitar. You can probably pick one up for under $200.
Yamaha is a good way to go, but maybe a little more $. She's 13 and doesn't want an electric ??

Re: recommended guitar

I just bought my daughter a Dean Acoustic/Elect. Very nice for the price and she's fallen in love with it. Which means she's practicing more. I bought from guitarexpress.com $250.

Re: recommended guitar

:I am a girl who learned how to play guitar when I was thirteen. Therefore, I consider myself a resource for advice.
I learned how to play on an acoustic classica guitar, $50, at a pawn shop. I played on that baby for 5 years.
The good thing about a classical, in the beginning, is that it usually has a wide neck, so her fingers have room to move.
It also has a set of nylon strings, which look like plastic but are not. They are softer on the fingers.
Because they are so soft, she will not end up with bleeding fingers after a couple weeks of playing.
Bleeding, sore fingers have caused many potnetial musicians to put down their guitars forever. No one likes pain.
And by spending little money, you can plan on investing more money later, if she really likes the guitar and does well with it, on a more expensive instrument.
I wish you luck, and with any questions, please contact me at:
jlanier@austinc.edu.
I started at 13, I am now 22, and self-taught. Oh, Mel Bay books are best for chords.

Re: book about making guitars

The book I would recommend would vary based on your ability as a builder, whether or not you are starting with bare wood or assembling a kit. But check out Stewart MacDonalds supply of books, at http://www.stewmac.com/04books.htm.
More questions, check out my site and email me.

Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

I had this guitar since i was 14 I am now 50 and would like to know the worth of this guitar great shape

Re: Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

I own a 61 B-25 - 12 string Gibson. I have seen similar models go for $400 - 1,000. Best to take it to a reputable store and get more info. I don't know the difference between my B-25 & the B-45.

Re: Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

I'm not sure the worth of that instrument myself, however, I did purchase one, same year

Re: Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

I'm not sure the worth of that instrument myself, however, I did purchase one, same year for $400.00 about 1 year ago. I believe they are fine instruments and would be interested in purchasing another if in good condition. JasonBecker@prodigy.net

Re: Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

I recently saw one in a swedish store. They listed it for 840 EUR.

Re: Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

: I had this guitar since i was 14 I am now 50 and would like to know the worth of this guitar great shape

I'm going to look at a clean one tomorrow for $500 which could be a good deal. The difference between a 25 and 45 is that the 25 has a smaller body.

Re: Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

: : I had this guitar since i was 14 I am now 50 and would like to know the worth of this guitar great shape

I just bought one in great shape for $900.

Re: Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

: I had this guitar since i was 14 I am now 50 and would like to know the worth of this guitar great shape

I have a B-45 12 string, bought it in Northern England (UK) in 1974 used. It has a rosewood finish and is the rare version with the Pin Bridge. Have seen similar advertised for $800 in USA but these guitars have a rarity value over here in the UK and I have been offered in excess of £2000.
Any ideas of the value of a used J-30?

Re: Any one know the worth gibson b-45-12 1964

: I had this guitar since i was 14 I am now 50 and would like to know the worth of this guitar great shape

This guitar is worth between $750-$1000. If it is cherry sunburst with normal endpin bridge, without trapeze tail piece, and in really good condition, it would be worth $1000 and I would be interested in buying it.

Matt, I am using a Fostex FD8, with a 250 mb Zipdrive. I run it through an ART Tube dual preamp and an Alesis RA100 power amp to drive a set of Alesis Monitor One monitors. I have been real satisfied with this setup. For the money, this is a good starter and it is expandable. The unit gives you good sound and a lot of flexibility for the price.

Cakewalk Guitar Tracks

Was wondering if anyone has used this program. I want to start doing some recording at home, but have no experience and this looked fairly easy to start with.
