Yamaha F310 Acoustic Guitar: Pricey for a Beginner

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

The Yamaha F310 is not a cheap guitar. Is it too costly for a beginner? That depends on how serious you are as a beginner. But more on that later.

This review will be on the short side because there’s not a lot I need to tell you here. I’ll give you all the important features and specs, tell you whether I think this guitar is for you, and then I’ll stop. Good enough? Great.

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

In some of the pictures you see of the Kona K2TBL, this acoustic electric guitar may look kinda green. It’s not. It’s a deep blue. That’s what the “BL” in the model name stands for.

If a blue acoustic electric sounds like your cup o’ tea, read on. (I think it looks pretty cool myself.)

Wow! This guitar, the Glen Burton GA204BCO acoustic-electric is really hard to find information about, but it’s fairly popular, so I’m going to tell you what little I know about it.

It comes in a few colors, but the most popular seems to be black which is model GA204BCO-BK. I rather like the black look myself.

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

The Washburn C5CE classical guitar is simple and easy to play. It is made of some woods that are not as common as on many other instruments. The smaller size and nylon strings that it comes with make it easier on the fingers, especially for beginners.

Let’s take a quick look at this ¾ size guitar to see if it is the best guitar for beginners or even for more experienced players who like the classical style.

Oscar Schmidt OD312CEB 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

Personally, I don’t go for 12-string guitars, but that’s just me. If you like a good 12-string, the Oscar Schmidt OD312CEB could be just what you’ve been looking for.

I don’t have a lot of information about it, but I give you what little I could find. There should be enough to give you a good idea as to whether or not you’d like one for yourself.

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

Yamaha makes the world’s “best-selling acoustic-electric guitar”, the APX500III. This APXT2 3/4 size model is its little brother (or sister, if you prefer).

Let’s take a quick look at what makes up the Yamaha APXT2, so you can see if it’s the one you’ve been looking for.

Fender CD-60SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar: A Popular Classic

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

I like how Fender characterizes the CD-60SCE. They says it’s “perfect for the couch, the beach, or the coffeehouse.” So basically, the Fender CD-60SCE acoustic-electric guitar is good to play anywhere.

I think you’ll find, as I describe the features and specifications below, that you’ll agree with this assessment.

Jameson Acoustic Electric Guitars. Wait, Jameson? Yup.

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

Jameson acoustic electric guitars may not be in the same league as those from Taylor or Martin, but for their price they are certainly worth more than a dismissive look.

If you decide to venture to the Jameson website, look under “Acoustic” to find their acoustic electric models. Unfortunately, it’s not immediately obvious there that they even make this type of guitar.

But they do! They even make both left-handed and right-handed versions of their 41-inch, slimline instrument. But more about this later.

I’m not really sure who else plays Ed Sheeran Signature guitars, other than Ed himself. I’m sure there are plenty of guitarists who have bought one and use it, but I just don’t know who they are.

However, Mr. Sheeran would like to increase the number of young guitarists who own these signature instruments, according to a recent report.
