Should I Buy Used Or New Guitar

When should I buy a new guitar?

When you can afford it OR however long you can bare to wait.Ask yourself.. do I NEED another guitar, of course the answer is always YES.This is called GAS Guitar Acquisition Syndrome and is a common plight of many if not all guitarists.Buy a new guitar when:The one/s you have don’t do whatever it is you NEED them to do e.g need a humbucker, frets are worn out on a cheap guitar that will cost more to fix than to buy a new one, need a single coil (I'm assuming your electric), when the guitar itself inhibits your playing, I had this in 1994, I couldn’t finger tap on a guitar, I got a Fender Mex Strat, problem solved.You should never buy a ‘new’ guitar, flip there are LOADS of high quality Japanese guitars from the 1970s/80s that go for around £100 that will run rings around many new guitars at that price point.And as I am often want to tell players on this site: Neck comfort is everything to quality of life for guitarists, try before you buy.I got a 2015 Gibson SG Standard with a super wide neck, that I don’t like, and it might as well be a paper weight coz I’ll never play it, and no one will buy it off me.

Where can I buy a new or used Ibanez mtm1 guitar?

Should I buy a new or used guitar?

If you are completely new and are learning guitar because you want to learn something new. I suggest going for a used guitar. The age of the guitar is a not a problem; but the maintenance is. If he last played it a long time ago, it might be that the guitar is not in a good shape. Then i would suggest getting a used guitar but maybe online from someone else. Once you develop interest and you know you'd play it more, you can buy a new guitar in the lower budgets. It will take you a few years to train you ear to differentiate between sound of guitars so i highly suggest a used one.Now how do you know if it is in fit condition or not?The first thing that will be obvious is that the string would need to be changed.Dont worry any musical shop would have strings for around Rs 100 a set and they would even out it on for you.The next problem that might be is that the guitar wood may have cracked. If that is the case i would definitely say get a different guitar. It is fixable but not worth it.The last problem that comes to mind is that the neck of the guitar might have bent. When this happens, some notes would buzz when played. It wont be possible for you to check them. If you have a friend who plays the guitar to check if the neck is bent. Otherwise, you could just give it to the shop so that they may check for it.But I do suggest getting it properly fixed. First impression matters. Dont let a bad experience rob you of the pleasure one gets when playing the guitar.

Should I buy a new guitar or a new amplifier?

I use a Blackstar 5 watt all tube amplifier.I use this amp for jazz gigs, blues and rock.5 watts isn't much, some may say. Here is my reasoning:Everyone knows that when playing rock or blues, a tube amplifier sounds best when it is cranked up. That is when it really starts to sing.You just can't do this with a Marshall stack without risking ear damage. You sure can't practise like this. But my 5 watter sounds sweet.On the gig I just mike it up. There is a line out option but I like the sound coming off the speaker.As for quality; always buy the best you can afford. As a youngster I wanted big amps but I didn't have much money. I sacrificed quality for power and wound up with a crummy sound.Same goes for the guitar but mass production has brought the cost of pro guitars way, way down. In the 70s only a pro could afford pro gear. The alternatives were sometimes not very good; guitars with actions you could drive under, amps that should have been used for: Number 6 your meal is ready.So, if you can afford it, buy both. But always buy quality.

Should I purchase a used taylor 114 guitar or a new big baby taylor?

They're both decent guitars, but the 114 is nicer. I wouldn't call the Big Baby a beginner guitar...just bare-bones. A lot of corners were cut on the cosmetics...like there's no binding. Taylor describes it as a 15/16 scale which is almost full sized. If the 114 is in excellent shape, I'd probably choose that....and try to negotiate a little on the price.
