At the beginning of a musical career as a guitarist, one of the most frequently asked questions is: which guitar do I buy? Let’s talk about the choice that will accompany you for the first months and probably even beyond…
How to choose the best acoustic electric guitars under 200?
An acoustic-electric guitar (or an electro acoustic guitar) represents the proverbial middle way between two apparently very different worlds. And yet it is an interesting choice, both because it offers a sort of fusion between tradition and modernity, and because it allows for an extremely pleasant sound as well as giving free rein to the creativity and virtuosity.
The lucky ones who can afford not to look too much at the price, point immediately to very expensive instruments, but they are not yet able to fully appreciate the nuances and details that distinguish them. Therefore, we could in a certain sense define them as squanderers, although it is obvious that everyone is still free to act at their discretion. Presumably, the growth of the musician and the quality of the instruments used should increase in a proportional way.
Fender Squier SA-105CE SB
If you are knowledgeable about guitars, you know that the Fender brand has stood out through the years for its sound quality and durability of its products. This acoustic electric guitar is especially appealing to the rich, full-bodied sound produced by its acoustic speaker and amplified by the Fishman Isys-T pickup system. Design knows how to combine tradition and modernity, keeping the maple wood tone, but adding a touch of creativity with an irregularly shaped neck and a black breaking element where the hand that pinches the strings rests.
The metallic elements inserted on the neck to mark the progression of the notes are not unpleasant to the fingers, even with frequent use. The overall robustness of this model is also highly appreciated, in line with the Squier standards.

Many appreciate it is in the sunburst version, but are also available in black and wood. The Fender Squier is manufactured in China; this does not affect the quality of its acoustic performance, and is noticeable only from the finishing, which unfortunately are rather rough and poor in detail.
