Guitar types are so numerous in terms of selection that it is easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to decide which kind to buy. So first and foremost you’ll want to decide on whether to go with an electric guitar or acoustic? Doing so will certainly narrow things down somewhat. If you decide to go the acoustic route, once again there are seemingly infinite models to choose from. FYI the most common acoustic guitars are the dreadnaught models. However, you can always opt for a smaller size which are very common for younger guitar players. If it’s an electric guitar you desire, again there’s no end to the types of guitars available. So play as many as you can before comitting to a purchase.
Speaking of purchasing, many guitar shops offer the option of renting guitars, both acoustic and electric (and amps.) This is a great (and safe) way to try out different types of guitars. When shopping for a guitar a salesperson will likely ask you what your budget is? When they know how much you’re prepared to spend they will direct you to your guitar options.
