Acoustic Guitar under £200

Can anyone recommend a decent beginner acoustic guitar under £200. I know this is a bit random but i figured you guys are probably much more guitar savvy than me!

Try a LAG Tramontane T66A. Very good guitar for the money.

Tanglewood guitars are pretty good, they do a massive range so don't be put off if you only see high priced ones at first! I think their cheapest ones are around £130. If you can stretch a bit I have an Adam Black electro-acoustic that was £250.

If you can find one, yamahas that are older than about 20-30 years sound amazing. I played one made in 1978 at a music store and it sounded better than some of the martins and gibsons i played and it was only $150. I have a yamaha fg 430 from 1989 and it sounds great too and was the same price. Not sure about availability of yamahas in the UK, but they're awesome sounding and cheap.

+1 For a Tanglewood. Really well put together and lovely to play.

Ibanez AEG10
Slender and easy to play, sounds great acoustic or plugged in,
quality pickups, great if your into home recording or want to gig

normaly retail around the 300 mark but i have seen them for 220 http://www.thomann.de/gb/ibanez_aeg10_e ... cbef1b70bd

best to find a decent shop and try a few, I had my heart set on a entry level solid top tanglewood or Fender in the 250-300 range but after a couple of hours trying them out went for the Ibanez.

I have a fender telecoustic picked for its thinness. Its the marmite of the guitar world though there are as many bad reviews as good probably more bad mainly on its sound. I love it i think it sounds good through the very old amp i have

Not usually first choice, but I bought my Jim Deacon electro acoustic for £180. 200-300 gigs later, it's still going strong and hasn' ever let me down.

Freshman are pretty good. Made in Britain too, if you care about that.

I play a Gibson Epiphone PR 650 that is definitely not worth more than £200, but I like it. That said, I don't have anything to compare it to other than an even older (now retired:() Concorde (whatever that is!). It's 18+ years old though, and not been that well looked after, so definitely not that breakable :P Hope this vaguely helps!

Sorry to bump but I am looking to pick up a guitar myself. It will be my first guitar (not technically but I haven't played since I was a kid and I don't remember anything, so treat it like a first.) and I have set myself a budget of £200.

I found this thread and searched through the suggestions, but really fell in love with the sound of the Ibanez mentioned in this thread. I then searched for it new and used and have found a couple going for as low as £125 used.

I would like to know, is this guitar suitable for a beginner and if not what would you recommend? I am looking just to play casually so electro acoustic is not required but like with the Ibanez some of the features seem quite useful.

When I get some feedback I'll head down to my local store to ask some more questions and get a feel for the guitars but until then I'd like to hear your opinion!

Thanks in advance guys, can't wait to hear from you!
