    As OilerBuck said before, if you are a begginner, and not going to spend alot on a guitar anyway for the time being, eBay might be a decent shot if you know what to look for and how to not get ripped off. But you can always go to a guitar shop and still get a good deal. I bought my first guitar at a smaller guitar/music shop, and i got a Samick acoustic with a carrying bag, extra strings, and a bunch of picks for around $108.00.

    But my dad just gave me his 1973 Gibson Les Paul electric guitar (in great shape) after I had been playing for a while, so i got that thing to keep me busy for awhile :biggrin: .

    Those of you who can play guitar get my utmost respect.

    I took a music ed. class at OSU and we tried playing guitar and to say the least, I was completely humbled.

    I don't know how one can train their fingers to contort the way you need to successfully play the guitar.

    Ah, guitar is easy (Well, it is now, after 20 some years), it's piano that's kicking my ass.

    I learned to play in middle school when my aunt started to teach me how. I kind of slacked off when I started playing the trombone in Junior High.

    By the time I got to college I wasn't doing either anymore. And it's been so long I can barely even read sheet music anymore :(

    Let me get this right, you traded the guitar for a trombone?

    Yes not the best choice:) I think it was because My aunt and uncle got divorced so she wasn't around anymore to teach me. Plus I had freinds who were in band so gave that a try. Trust Me I kick myself all the time :)

    I have four guitars and have played for more than 30 years. My pride and joy is a 1969 Guild F47. I also have a 1972 Guild classical, a Takhamine 12 String and a Washburn electric.

    I would NEVER buy a guitar on eBay.

    Used guitars can be a real bargain but it is important to verify that the neck is in alignment, that the action is good, and that there are no problems with the saddle and etc.

    You can only do this by playing a guitar and inspecting it in person.

    I cannot give you much advice about Ebay or not, however I do have an awesome Air Guitar that I have been playing since I was about 15 years old. The great thing about it is that it sounds perfect no matter what type of music I am playing. I had not really considered selling it, but since I read your post I have reconsidered. I will offer it to you for $500 just send me a check and I will get it to you.

    Make the check payable to Bernard Rubble C/O Buckeye planet

    Here is a picture of it laying against a bar stool.

    I've been playing guitar for around 6 years or so. I learned on a loaner epiphone, and when I was ready for my own, I bought 'way ahead' of my level at the time, hoping to 'grow' into the instrument. I bought a Guild D-25 and absolutely love it.

    Guitar is all about feel, just like a new set of golf clubs. You need to test one out before you buy one. If you find one on EBAY, I recommend you find an equivalent at say a Sam Ash and demo it first. I've played acoustic for about 8 years now and electric for about 6 months and it is a hobby well worth it. I can play the crap out of strohs as well :wink:
