Acoustic Guitar Package for Beginners

If you shop for your first acoustic guitar, you will find a lot of guitar packages. Some salespersons may promote them to you at attractive prices. Are these acoustic packages good for beginners?

When I was asked this question, my answer is that you can buy a package, but you should be very careful. In some cases, one or two items of the package are not good for you or you don’t need them at all. So if you find all item in the package are useful and in good quality, you can buy it. Otherwise, you should buy your guitar and accessories independently.

A good acoustic guitar package always includes:

  • Acoustic guitar
  • Strings
  • Tuner
  • Strap
  • Plectrums or picks
  • Case
  • Stand
  • Guitar book and DVDs

The most important part is the guitar itself. The guitar in the package should be good quality guitar for beginners. Check out the recommended acoustic guitars for beginners. If the guitar is a very cheap and low quality guitar, don’t buy it.
