Welcome to IWETHEY!

New LOL
Or if you're learning and just trying to figure out if you can even play the thing and don't want to pay a price literally 2 orders of magnitude bigger, this is a decent starter guitar:

This company apparently sells a lot of replicas from companies that build the big names. Very good quality, very good prices, unknown names.

I had mine checked out by someone who plays real guitar extremely well. He was quite impressed with the quality.

New Not at all. I'm mocking the thought that a beginner should buy a $7000 guitar.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Okay.
At least I didn't suggest this one. ;0)

OTOH, I'm not a real guitar player, but I am a real banjo player and I can tell you with absolute certainty that I cannot get my first banjo (a gift from my parents when I was 12) to ever sound like my Gibson Pre-War TB11 conversion. There is something to be said for not starting out on what we used to call "department store instruments" imo. For one thing, a quality instrument is a lot easier to fret and will make anyone sound better. ;0)

New True, but as I said these are good quality reproductions.
Made by the same people who make the name brand instruments.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New No argument.
I also have one of these and I must say it is a very fine instrument, despite it's being made 60 years after my Gibson. ;0)

There are very high quality banjos being made today. Even the relatively inexpensive Deering GoodTime resonator banjos (around $900.00 the last I looked) I've heard have really good tone. This is a *very* hot discussion/argument in banjo circles. Are the new Stellings, Huber's, Prucha's, Cox's, Sullivan's, etc. as "good" as the Pre-War Gibson's? My real opinion is play it, if you like it, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

New $45K for a trigger's broom acoustic?
OK, I absolutely do not understand the high end vintage acoustic guitar market.
New No worries. You'll develop taste some time. ;0)
