Musician's Friend is a great place. The one in Kansas City has dings and dents with alot of the guitars, so you can get them at a discount. Even then, I would plan on paying at least a $250.

Yamaha makes a good starter guitar. You're getting an acoustic, I assume.

I have a 2007 Reverend Warhawk II HB with a Roland cube 15 amp. That set me back about $650. Here is a link to nice site for this topic. They even have a classified forum to buy used stuff.

Reading music may be helpful in comprehending theory, but guitar is really about you feeling the dedication inside to learning the craft with considerable physical discomfort (ouch! blisters on your fingers) and perservering out of love for the music.
You can make/discover beautiful/motivating music with a $75 guitar. Its all about heart.

Those both look pretty nice to me. I would tend to believe that if you just want an acoustic that you could get something decent for like $75-100 used. You just have to make sure it is not all messed up.

starter guitar you might even check out a pawn shop

go with acoustic it will help you build finger strength and calluses more quickly
make sure it's got decent action ( I like mine set about 1/8-1/4 on the 12th fret

make sure you play it at the store and it sounds good, neck straight fret all the strings up and down the neck to make sure it doesn't have buzz



you can get a decent used one to start with see how you like it then move up to a nicer new more expensive version
