2. Shop Online for Deals!
The Internet has allowed us to become better educated buyers. A decade ago, it was quite normal for a person to make a buying based on a price comparison of just 3 local music stores. Today the same principle applies, but instead of being able to compare just 3 stores, we are able to compare literally hundreds! Taking a look at some online retails and comparing prices will only take a few minutes and it could save you enough cash for a heavy night out at the pub! I have had some decent ordering experience with gear4music and dolphinmusic and their prices seem to be lower than most.

One advantage of owning a semi acoustic guitar is that it does not necessarily need to be amplified. The hollow bodied design means that it is not only the strings that vibrate, but also the body of the guitar. This is also of benefit to the sound quality as it is said that hollow body guitars offer better resonance and sustain than a solid body. However, due to its design, semi acoustics will often struggle with heavy amplification and are prone to feedback, particularly if the amp is on a high distortion or overdrive setting. Again this ties in with the style of music that you will be playing and the effects that you use with your amp. This boils down to the intended usage of the guitar in terms of your musical ambitions.
