Hi all,

I am a newbie, and am learning to play a guitar.

One of my all time favorite bands are the eagles, so consequently i purchased a Takamine TSF48C which thus far I love ( even though I cant really utilize its potential yet sad.gif .

When I got to learn of this site, i soon realised that there are far more types of music I would like to play that I am not sure my Guitar will allow me to achieve.

So I would like to buy a classical, and a electric, so that I can learn rock songs, as well as flaminco/classical type music.

Could someone here please be so kind as to suggest what would be great value for money in BOTH these categories?
As I am NOT made of money, and my wife (management) would not be too thrilled at me spending what she deems excessive amounts on 2 more guitars , when in her eyes I have already spent waaaay to much on my Takamine! lol

Thank you in advance, and thank you for this superb learning site!

Hello there, welcome to GMC!

You know, getting an electric and a classical second hand would be very cheap and beneficial if you want to learn a wide variety of things.

a used classical guitar will probably only set you back 50 USD, an electric w/ an amp will maybe be 200 USD.

this will be far from "performance" quality, but these instruments will give you room to grow.

that being said, I play flamenco on both my acoustic and my electric.

Equipment: Classical/Jazz hybrid guitar. blunt/black humor.

Success is the best revenge.

Since you already have the Takamine there really is not a need to buy a classical guitar unless you can afford it right now. You can still learn classical on that for now and use what funds you have to buy a decent electric nice & little combo amp.

Depending on where you live and how patient you are (shop around) you'll be surprised you can find all kinds of deals are to be had wink.gif
