trying one out would be your best bet for how decent you want it to be.

Yeah. Just go there and try them out. Buy the one you're happiest with. It's all about personal preference. If you're happy with it then it is a great guitar. It doesn't matter if the entire world disagrees as long as you're happy. smile.gif

Thanks guys for your advice, ill be going to a shop in Spain, and i hope i can get something good from a not known brand so it is very cheap. As long it stays in tune is going to be good for me, i just want it to be really cheap.

Best idea is to try some guitars in the shop, or even two shops. Otherwise, I think that for learning any working guitar will be good, and when You will have more money and skill, You can buy something "top class".

I already own a Godin Multiac Grand Concert Duet, which is a very very good guitar, i really love it, i just want a guitar to practice in my summer vacation, because i dont want to take my guitar from Mexico to Spain.

Yeah, I got one too. It is not a great guitar, but you pay half the price its worth. Another thing to keep in mind is that guitars, and especially classical ones, get more sustain and a better, bigger and more round sound after a while with playing. Cant really come up with the name for it in english, but its because the wood gets kinda "played in" after a while. Therefore, brand new classical guitars can "grow" better with time.

You should test any guitar by your self, for that price you can't expect big tone or volume, but you can make sure thet the guitar is confortable and stays in tune, becouse wood is something alive,each guitar sounds different, whit some research you could get lucky, a good idea is go to the local classical guitar conservatory and ask which cheap guitar is nice for the starting students.
