so for any guitar master or beginner, one of the most important decisions you can make is picking a guitar. an important concept told to me that is very crucial to understand for beginners is you need to put down some cash for a guitar. if you buy a shitty sounding guitar it wont be as enticing to learn. at the same time you dont want to spend thousands of dollars on something you wont end up pursuing
The Seagull S6 ($300-$400)
Anyone who has ever owned or played this guitar should know of the quality this guitar has. while a $300-$400 price tag may seem steep, i assure you its well worth it. I bought this guitar the summer between my 11th and 12th year in highschool, so i saved up a good 5months for it. best purchase ever. i have only played few guitars of equal or greater quality and those happened to be in the $2k price range. so considering that, the price is cheap for the quality especially when these are all hand-made in canada. if your an intermediate-master guitar player you'll notice the quality the instant you start playing, and the sound only gets better as it ages. If you got a bit more cash to drop, i'd suggest going with their artist series guitars...
p.s. these things have excellent resale value

Honestly you can learn on any guitar and I definitely wouldn't spend $400 on a guitar if you're just starting out. Almost all people who start playing guitar quit playing and there guitar sits on a stand in there room just for looks and they wasted $400 or more on it.
Learning guitar isn't about the quality of guitar, I started out on a shitty Squire when I was 12 and I am pretty good now. If you're just starting out in guitar, I recommend a cheap decent guitar. Play the shitty guitar until you get passed the basics and know you will carry on with it, then buy a nicer guitar.

this is still a baddass guitar. most of my friends quit after playing cheapy $50 guitars. then they played mine and got back into it. i know its not for everyone, hence why its simply a recommendation

Interesting. I've been wanting to get a guitar. But it also depends on how motivated you are as well. I start playing piano on shitty little $50 Casio Keyboard and it sucked. Keys weren't weighted or anything but I didn't care cause I wanted to learn. I now have a studio keyboard my parents got me $1400ish and it's amazing. I do want to own a Steinway though
But thanks for the recommendation. I'll look into it
