It's a strange term "beginners guitar". What does that mean exactly? To me it always sounds a derogatory term with connotations of "cheap" and not of particularly high quality. In some way not good enough for "serious guitar players"?

And whilst there may have been some truth to that 40 odd years ago when I started playing I don't think things are quite so clear cut these days.

Back then a "beginners guitar" was definitely going to be all laminate and not good quality laminate at that. The action would normally be too high and the thing would sound like a cheap plywood box with strings on it...which is essentially what most of these guitars were.

Today though the budget guitar market has changed beyond all recognition and is full of pretty good quality instruments that, whilst not endowed with all the aesthetics and refinements found on more expensive guitars still leaves you with a very good instrument for very little money.

The Yamaha FG800M is one such guitar and arguably better than most.
