What aspects should I count on when buying a guitar?
There are guitars of different kinds and prices. Their quality will depend on the price. It’s not good to buy the cheapest guitar; usually these guitars are hard for your fingers and get out of tune easily. It is convenient to choose a guitar that fells soft when playing it. When you are buying a guitar please assure yourself that the person selling you the guitar will tune it on A 440. Most of the times the person selling the guitar will show it to us in a really low pitch. This makes us feel the strings softer than how they really are. In addition, it will be really good if you checked the pegs. Check that they are of good quality and that they do not do fake movements. It is worth it if you take a look at them from the distance between the neck of the guitar and the strings, if these are really separated from each other, the guitar will sound out of tune.
