Yamaha makes some great entry level acoustics. If you are trying to keep it under 100 bucks then the pawn shop is where you should go. If you are seriously interested in learning and you plan on playing forever, you might as well save up a little more money and get something decent. If you go that route, expect to pay 300 or more. Good luck!

Ovation plastic-backs are great if you got the money for them.

unless you are referring to Ovation's "Aplause" series you must be joking...those are great guitars, but they are incredibly expensive for a beginner and way overpriced for a pro.

the end.

Yeah, be sure to avoid Ovations...they're worthless and people will make fun of you.

Epiphone has some affordable, yet quality acoustic guitars.

Though honestly, nobody can tell you what guitar to get. You have to try some out for yourself. Never order guitars from internet sites or from catalogs until you can read a description of a guitar and then know exactly how it will feel on your body and play with you're style. I can do this, but it really takes a long time, so just go to a music store and try out the guitars there.

I sold my electric guitar awhile ago... DUMBEST thing i have ever done in my life honestly. Just because i hadnt played it in a month or 2 and it was collecting dust.

Now all of a sudden i get the urge to pick it up again cuz I have the time and such and ooohhhh the feeling of regret i had.

So i went down to the local music store and bought a Ibanez V. 150$ it isnt the best guitar by any means but it plays nice and sounds good too.

Im in heaven again being able to just pick it up and jam out to some sublime :dance:

I personally love ovations.

But yeah I'd agree to go with a Yammy. I have some Acoustic Yamaha from like 1985.. That thing rules and it retailed for like 180 dollars.

have you tried the Ibanez Artwood series? 300 bucks packs a hell of a punch...best value for an accoustic in my opinion.
