Acoustic guitars are the perfect instruments to play an intimate gig in a cafe for a few devoted fans, or play at home, in the living room or bedroom for friends and family. They have a unique feel and sound compared to other electronic guitars, or even other instruments. Our recommendation for the best acoustic guitars are listed below.

Beautiful guitar. This guitar beats all of them in sound & looks. It was priced at Amazon full price in our local music store. We had to bring it to a local music store to have the shoulder strap installed since this guitar only has one peg for the shoulder strap. Also bought the tric case from the local store since I was not sure if the same case they have here at amazon fits the S6. Don’t hesitate, buy S6 here in Amazon. They packaged it well & it arrived in 2 days with my prime membership.

Review:

Finally received my GS Mini (Which had been on order for 2 months) and it was worth the wait.

I own a number of full-sized taylor guitars (a T5 and a 612-CE) and was looking for a lower-cost acoustic I could throw in the car and take with me when traveling.

The GS mini comes with a nice soft-case (a step-above a gig bag IMHO) that has shoulder-straps and a big pocket on the front for tuner, cables, music, etc…

The guitar itself is a reduced scale, yet doesn’t feel like a “toy” or kids guitar. The sound is impressive. Maybe not a s deep or rich as a full-sized GS or Dreadnought, but plenty full for its size.

The guitar arrived with basically a straight neck (no relief), which can cause some string buzz if you dig into it. But once the guitar acclimates to my house and the RH here in New England, I’ll tweak the truss rod and give it a bit of relief.

Very easy to play up and down the neck, and yet doesn’t feel too cramped due to the reduced scale.

All in all, for $500, this is a great guitar that I won’t be afraid to drag with me on camping trips, airplanes, or wherever.

I’ve had this guitar for about 2 years now, and it’s absolutely fantastic. It’s got an awesome sound, and it’s a good size. It’s great for a beginner, or someone that doesn’t want to spend a whole bunch of money, but that wants a full sized guitar.

I didn’t get mine from amazon, so mine was more than what they say it is on this site. That’s a pretty good price people. My advice right now would be to buy this guitar on this site for a great price. This guitar is fantastic.

I bought this guitar about a month ago. It has been one of the best purchases from Amazon that I’ve done! Those of you that are skeptical about buying the guitar you should have no worries. This is a fantastic guitar for a beginner. I wanted something cheap to learn how to play so I bought this guitar. Well the guitar is awesome and that’s and understatement! The strings are the only thing BAD about the guitar which isn’t a big problem. I highly recommend buying some Ernie Ball Earthwood Medium Light strings which are about $5 bucks on Amazon. It’ll really pay off buying news strings because it’ll make your guitar from sounding like a $100 guitar to a $400 guitar. Highly recommend the guitar! Rock on!

Review:

I’ve played an Ovation for years and love it. Due to personal circumstances it became difficult to continue to play my deep bowl. Over the years I looked at a number of travel and smaller guitars and was disappointed. The Rover is no such disappointment. I absolutely love it! Sure it’s no bass boomer, but it certainly has quality and good sound that projects surprisingly well. Once again I am playing and highly recommend this guitar to anyone. Perfect for traveling, an inexpensive beginners guitar and certainly a very enjoyable instrument even to the accomplished player. Don’t underestimate the Rover! For the scoffers who say this is no real instrument, go listen to Jake Shimabukuro and hear the reality, “knows no bounds”.

Review:

A nice guitar. Came with nubone compensated saddle and nut… Quality touch. Nice Full binding body and neck, nice gloss finish…good quality control standards. Even bridge pins are sharp looking. For the $ it’s way above a lot of others.

There was no adjust or tweak I found needed here… Maybe could drop the action a little tiny bit, sand a little off saddle base, but I’m fine with it…as is. all fret edges are clean and smooth, got a pretty sound with that nubone ring to them.

When I first saw online photo kinda thought bridge looked odd…but in real life it’s sharp looking. Plays great looks and sounds 2x the price easy.

Review:

I’m going to put my bias right out here: I have NEVER EVER played a Fender accoustic that didn’t sound like it was made of plastic. A lot of people get sucked in by then name, and YES I love my Fender Strat, but these guys just haven’t made a an accoustic worthy of the name until this one. It has warm sound and fantastic action. For the money, I don’t think you could do much better (maybe a Yamaha.)

Review:

I bought this guitar for my wife last Christmas. It’s priced a little higher than the low-end guitars, but the sound and feel of it really justify the price.

I myself play the guitar and have some experience with the feel and sound of a guitar. This particular one is really smooth, easy on the fingers, and the sound is excellent. As far as tuning the guitar, it definitely tunes very well and very easily.

I highly recommend this guitar – the price may be a little steep, but if you see it on sale anywhere, go for it.

Review:

The Luna Fauna Phoenix Acoustic guitar has rainbow colored abalone inlay galore, from the phoenix design on the body, and the swirl around the sound hole, to the logo on the headstock. It is absolutely beautiful. It is also a great sounding acoustic-electric guitar. It has a very warm, full sound. It is lightweight and easy to play. The pre-amp has a tuner, so it is quite easy and convenient to stay in tune all the time. The hardest thing about this guitar is keeping it out of the hands of the other guitar players in your home–it is quite irresistible! Be sure to order the hard case to protect its beauty–also available from Amazon.

Review:

I did quite a bit of research before making this purchase. After receiving this guitar and playing it for a brief period I am convinced I made the right choice. The sounds across the board are bright and filled with a tonal quality similar to what you would expect from a Martin or Guild.

The whole guitar has been constructed with great care and the quality of every part is excellent. It has to be your personal choice but I can’t imagine being more happy with any other instrument. I will have this in my lap for years to come.
