Hello! I'm really appreciative of your free lessons, especially to adults such as myself trying to pick up the guitar at ripe late twenties. I have been away from home and have had no access to a guitar to practice, I have looked online to buy second-hand/used guitars to practice on. However, I'm unsure of the sources and hence I thought this post might help for some advice or would have one to giveaway yourselves:^P! Also, I live in the UK at the moment and a student so the budget is...say quite low!The cheaper the better and decent quality for a beginner.

Sincerely,
Gree

Late twenties? You're still a kid!

Acoustic or electric? Whereabouts in the UK are you?

  • What next???
Have a look on Gear4music at their own brand guitars, they are reasonably good for a beginner and competitively priced.
Beware of Amazon, some is ok some is rubbish some needs work to play ok.
Too much to list now, I have a bad case of GAS, UAS, and general ‘must have syndrome’
My bank account and Plastic live in fear!!!

I would suggest looking on gumtree or similar for second hand ones.
