It is never too late to learn a musical instrument, and it is certainly never too late to buy a guitar. If you always wanted to buy guitar online but were daunted by the guitar price, this guide will help you choose the right instrument within your budget.
Studies have also shown that learning to play a musical instrument stimulates brain function. Owning a guitar and learning to play it will make you the centre of attraction wherever you go. Unlike a bigger instrument such as the piano, a guitar offers excellent portability, and you can carry it along to parties, hikes, picnics, family get-togethers etc.
Before you check out the guitar price list and choose your favourite guitar online option, here are a few things you need to keep in mind:
How does it sound?
The most important thing that you must do before buying a guitar is to play it. Many guitars can look really cool but might be tough to handle. Therefore, it is best to try the guitar before you buy guitar online. If this is not possible, you can go through the user reviews as these usually provide a true picture of the product.
How much does it cost?
There is, of course, the question of budget. Depending on the model, your guitar price can range from as less as Rs. 5,000 to as much as a few lakhs. Before you buy guitar, decide which model/type/variant you want to go for. This will depend on the kind of music you want to play.
Which type of guitar?
Acoustic or semi-acoustic or electric? These are the three main types of guitars available in the market. Acoustic guitars are basic instruments that are suitable for folk music, soft rock and campfire performances. Electric guitars come with tuners and need to be hooked up to amplifiers. These are more suited to louder music such as hard rock, metal, rock and roll etc.
Which brand should I go for?
Like with most products, established brands offer better quality guitars. Some of India’s most popular guitar brands include Yamaha, Fender, Epiphone, Ibanez, to name a few. Your guitar price is directly proportional to the brand you choose. If you are a beginner, we recommend you buy guitar from an Indian manufacturer to learn the ropes before graduating to a more expensive one.
Do I need any accessories?
Even the most basic acoustic guitar needs a set of accessories for you to draw the best performance out of it. These accessories include a couple of extra sets of strings, plectrums/picks of varying thicknesses, and sturdy carry cases to keep your guitar safe when it is not being used.
