I’m left-handed, but I do lots of things – including playing guitar – as a right-hander. If you play guitar left-handed, you have probably found it a little more difficult to find a guitar that suits you. A left-handed acoustic guitar isn’t exactly rare, but it is more challenging to find a good one.

In this article, I’ll take a look at several left-handed acoustic guitars that you might find interesting. We’ll examine guitars by Martin, Yamaha, Ibanez, Fender, and Seagull. Continue reading “The Best Left-Handed Acoustic Guitars: There’s One for You Here”

When looking for the best acoustic guitar for kids, most of the time you’ll be looking at smaller models that are ¾ the size of a “normal” guitar. That’s what you’ll find in the four models I’ll review for you here.

In this review, I’ll look at two nearly identical models from Fender and one each from Yamaha and Taylor. Information on these smaller models is a little hard to come by in many cases, but I think you should be able to decide which one is best for your situation by the end of this article.

It’s hard to argue against owning a Martin acoustic electric guitar, if you can afford it. The Little Martin acoustic electrics are the slightly more affordable models. The Ed Sheeran custom model mentioned above is a variation of one of the two basic Little Martins.

In this overview and review, I’ll look at these two (or three, depending on how you count) models to help you decide which one you’d like best. Continue reading “Little Martin Acoustic Electric Guitars: Ed Sheeran 3 Divide”

Are you tired of those little, round pearloid dots running up and down your fretboard? If so, you should look at a Paul Reed Smith (PRS) acoustic electric guitar, because it has birds of various shapes, sizes, and species along its neck.

PRS guitars’ signature, other than the Paul Reed Smith name itself, are the decorative, in-flight birds that replace the standard dots marking the frets in the usual positions. Continue reading “Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Acoustic Electric Guitars Review: Birds Everywhere”

Have you ever heard of Mitchell guitars? Don’t be ashamed if you haven’t. Mitchell is not yet one of the better-known brands like Martin or Gibson or Fender. Someday they might be if the Element and Exotic series acoustic electric guitars they currently offer are any indication of what’s to come.

Mitchell makes several lines of guitars. In this review, I’ll concentrate on just the acoustic electric models in the Element series and the Exotic series. That makes a total of 4 guitars. Continue reading “Mitchell Acoustic Electric Guitars Review: See What Came In under the Radar”

You may not be very familiar with the Seagull brand of guitars. I wasn’t, but I wish I had known about them sooner. They sound amazing, especially for the price. The Seagull S6 line of acoustic electric guitars seems like it was among the first, if not the original, line produced by Robert Godin back in 1982.

Here is a brief account of the origins of this brand as told on the Seagull website. Continue reading “Seagull S6 Acoustic Electric Guitars Review: Canadian Quality at a Good Price”

If you glance at the list (below) of Yamaha acoustic electric guitars that will be featured in this review, you would think at first that there are 6 models from which to choose. Technically, you would be correct, but there are really only 3 different styles there.

You can probably guess by looking at the first letter of each model why this is so. In this article then, I’ll group similar models together but still show you the differences among them. Continue reading “Yamaha Acoustic Electric Guitars Under $300 Reviews: Pick from Just a Few”

When I started looking for Ovation acoustic electric guitars under $300, I thought I had found a handful of models I could choose from. Unfortunately, it looks like some of them are no longer available (new). Of the several models I did find, they all boiled down to just two – the Applause Balladeer AB24II and the Applause Elite AE44II.

You can get more than one color of each Applause model, which is why it looked like there were more available originally. The Balladeer and the Elite don’t differ all that much from each other, so your options for an Ovation guitar under $300 aren’t all that great.

I’ll take a look at what you will be able to find and show you the differences among them in this review. Continue reading “Ovation Acoustic Electric Guitars under $300: Not Many Choices, Sorta”
