Owain Just getting started
Default Any advice on which guitar to play?

Hi, I am Owain, I am a 23 year old student, studying business management at the university of liverpool. I learnt to play guitar when I was 11 to 16, and took lessons. I first paid for lessons to take part in school, but the guitar teacher never turned up, so I got another better instructor and got lessons from him till I was 16. I haven't played much of my guitars since then, but have been looking to get back into it. Now with having to quit boxing I am officially getting back into guitars.

I have a few guitars, I have a Squier acoustic, a Yamaha Pacifica, a Harley Benton, and a PRS SE One I recently bought. Out of these I prefer my Squier acoustic, for some reason I've never liked my Pacifica despite people saying it's a good guitar. I don't like the twangy sound that comes from it. I love my acoustic because it's beautiful, has a beautiful nice natural sound coming out of it, a stronger sound than the Yamaha, and feels a cleaner sound. It's also just beautiful in comparison, all wood. I'm also not keen on the PRS SE One, i feel it's maybe too advanced for me.

Now, I'm not sure which I should play. My acoustic I love, but don't know if I should play that or one of my electrics. What are your suggestions? I like a lot of different music, country western, hotel California, some Joe Bonamassa, a bit of Eric Clapton, Tony Ennamuel, a bit of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Slash (on his own in his solos, not keen on his group), and I like a few Motorhead songs.

If you prefer the Squier that's the one you should play. Much of the music that you like is generally played on an electric however.
