Ooo, oooo, I can help!

I did music for a *long* time in my youth. Should pick it up again sometime.

I would suggest not worrying about online reviews for models. There are certain brands that are quality: Martin, Ibanez are the ones that come to mind. I don't think model reviews will matter much... The right guitar for you is, in one sense, the one that feels right: you can reach the whole fretboard, you can pluck it and it sounds lovely. In another sense, there's form: the right guitar should support the right form - no sense in getting carpal from the wrong guitar and bad form!

Guitars come in ALL SORTS of shapes and sizes. I have a "Travel guitar" foxfirefey gave me, and it, frankly, is officially "too small" and "not loud enough", but I loooove it. I can do things with it, with MY body, that I can't without a lot of practice on a bigger instrument. (I don't really Do Guitar though: I am trained on other instruments).

You have three separate parts of your fingers you need to consider: length, strength, and calluses. Two of those are mutable. :-) Calluses take weeks to grow in properly; until then, your poor fingers will hurt after a practice session. Strength will come too, with daily regular practice. Length........ ask a friend to pull your finger?


Price wise, I'm rusty, but I would look very suspicious at any new guitar cheaper than $200.

Hope that helps.
