While we tot up the votes and prepare to unveil the very best electric guitars under £300, we're returning to the pool of knowledge that is the MusicRadar community to ask another question: what's the best budget acoustic?
For those looking to buy their first, it's a daunting prospect. The number of brands alone is tremendous, but… whittling away the cream of the crop from the cheap and nasty is what we do best.
What to do now...
Think playability, durability and any other 'ability a guitarist on a budget should know. Standard rules apply: please check the street price (no second hand prices, if you please), log in and leave your suggested acoustic guitar (costing under £300) in the comments below. We'll post your definitive list in the coming weeks.
NOTE: ACOUSTIC GUITARS ONLY PLEASE - LET'S KEEP ELECTRO-ACOUSTICS FOR ANOTHER LIST
