advice from guitar playing sydneysiders

hi everyone,

i'm going to start guitar soon, and i need an accoustic (steel string preferable, nylon acceptable) guitar, because my parents won't let me start off with electric. but anyways, if someone could give me an estimate on around how much i would need to spend to get a good enough one, or even point me to a guitar, thanks.

and what's the difference between steel string and nylon string?

You will need about $200-$300 for an average steel string, $500-$700 for something half decent. the main difference between a nylon string and steel string is the sound! steel string has a far brighter, louder sound more suitable for rock ballads and so forth, while the nylon string can be a multitude of things like classical, flamenco, or mellow easy-listening like Pete Murray or something. you can pick up a cheap nylon string from $60 or so from a hock shop. I have a nylon string i could sell you but I'm in Brisbane so it wouldn't be worth the shipping for you. But look around because there are quite a few cool looking guitars floating around nowadays, and weather you get a nylon or a steel string it doesn't have to be plain, there are some really nice designs Ive seen lately. Good luck!

If you want a good brand guitar, you are going to pay a lot for it. are you absolutely positively sure you are going to stick with it? If you are and you want to go for a good brand straight up, my personal favorite for a steel string acoustic is a Maton. any Fender or Gibson is really good, Ibanez, Takamine, Washburn, all have excellent acoustics, but they are all expensive. They are what the pros use. there are plenty more brands than this but these are in my opinion a handful of the best.
