    "As a guy who grew up in a family of musicians, I've gotten familiar with certain instrument brands but the Gibson brand is the one that we trust most in terms of style and quality, there's no denying that. Tho it's a bit pricey, but what matters most is it's producing good music. On behalf of our musician family, Gibson is just among the finest and the best guitar brands. 🤘"

    "If you're just learning how to play, then this is one of the best guitar brands for beginners. I've also started with Epiphone as it comes with a reasonable price for its quality. It's very playable. The input jacks though are slightly loose so you better check yours before purchasing. "

    "I've had the chance to use a Fender guitar in an impromptu performance one night. It's big given that it's a full-size guitar. It's a dreadnaught, just the best acoustic guitar I've held because it's easy to press. there may be slight buzzing because of the frets being too close, but that's manageable. We had a chill night anyway because of good music. "

    "Asked mom to buy me a guitar so I can practice at home and later on when I'm in college, I can join band groups or just build a band of my own. Anyway, she bought me a red one in cedar top which by the way is prone to scratch, but i still love it so much. It's a semi-gloss and i think that it's hot and powerful-looking. Nicely padded and it sound amaziiing. 😍"

    "I have the Martin backpaker and it's portable to carry. It makes a beach night so warm and fuzzy. Don't expect a loud tone though. this is just a little guitar that you can bring anywhere with you. But it does produce dainty tones. For big guitars, Martin is also very popular as it does produce astounding sound."
