What is the best guitar for a beginner?
The first question to ask yourself is what sound are you trying to recreate. What guitar does the artist play that you would like your guitar to sound like? This is where your motivation comes from so if you want to know what is the best guitar for a beginner it greatly depends on what you yourself want to learn.
You will never get the sound you want unless you have the right guitar but in the meantime you can still practice with whatever guitar you have.
Also there is the option of using software emulation tools like Cakewalk to get the sound that you want but it will not have the same sound as a real guitar would have.
Bands and people choose particular guitars for the tones they produce. A Fender Strat sounds nothing like a Les Paul Gibson. Each guitar has a unique and distinctive sound.
