The guitar is a unique musical instrument. It carries the texture and tone created by the various conditions and environment when the trees grow, and the various rational and emotional judgments of the guitar maker when making it. Therefore, how to choose the right guitar is very necessary.
A good quality guitar is one of the most important factors of your guitar learning process, if you choose a terrible guitar, not only is material quality prone to problems, poor sound quality will also directly dampen your enthusiasm for practicing.
First of all, for beginners, the author does not recommend to consider too many professional issues of guitar, such as whether it is a solid veneer, what kind of wood, how much string pitch, timbre characteristics, guitar distortion, machine head, single-coil (humbucker) and so on. Considering this information requires sufficient experience, so beginners may be misleading by these difficult factors.
Actually, you need to consider these factors:
The regular size of the guitar is 41 inches and 40 inches. 41 inches is a standard body, which resonates better than 40 inches because the body is larger. But for new beginners, there is not much difference between the two. In principle, adults over 150cm can use 41 inches, plucking strings and changing the necks are no problems, but friends of 150cm and 41 inches may be uncomfortable to hold.
Different Color in Veneer
How does the color difference between the left and right sides of the guitar veneers cause it? First of all, this phenomenon only appears in full solid guitars. Because the veneer of the full solid guitar is spliced between the left and right veneers, and the wood ring pattern is different. Therefore, the texture of the two veneers is quite different, and the colors will be different when they are put together. If the difference in texture is small, it looks more symmetrical and balanced.
But this problem is only the appearance, and has nothing to do with the quality of the guitar. In fact, whether you have a full solid guitar of two to three thousand, or more expensive, there may be a phenomenon of different veneer colors. You don’t need to care.
Of course, my opinion when you choose the best guitar for you, the feel of playing is the most significant, because for beginners, the initial practice is relatively more difficult. Long-term practice has a comfortable feeling, at least it will make you keep practicing for a long time. All of this knowledge about how to choose the right guitar. Today the author will also introduce some guitars which suit beginners to play.

(Note: The difference between gloss and matte. In terms of playing, there is no obvious difference between the two kinds. In terms of appearance, the gloss paint is obviously more luxurious and beautiful, while the matte paint is more low-key and ordinary. In terms of making process, the gloss guitar is much more complicated than the matte guitar, and the price is usually higher. In terms of maintenance, since the gloss paint is a closed paint, the wood protection of the guitar itself will be better, while the matte paint is an open paint, and the humidity of the air will have a more obvious impact on the wood of the guitar. )
