How To Find The Right Acoustic Guitar Reviews

Jan 17, 2008
When it comes to buying an new acoustic guitar it is a good idea that you read as many acoustic guitar reviews as you possibly can. When it comes to the reviews that have been written there are two types that you can look at. The first type of review is written by an expert guitarist who has been given the chance to try out different guitars on a regular basis. The others will be written by people like you and me who write about a particular guitar that they are playing.

All the expert acoustic guitar reviews are written by someone who has several years of guitar experience. These people should also have several guitars from different manufacturers that they have used and reviewed. They should also be able to point out the good points and bad points of any acoustic guitar, even though they may prefer a particular one. Any biases that they have they should admit to and explain why. You are not looking for someone with a Bachelor's Degree in music. What you are looking for is someone who knows their stuff, and tells you why you should take what they say into consideration when looking for a new guitar.

When looking for user reviews, find a site that has several reviews of each guitar by a number of different kinds of musicians. Ideally go to music store sites, as they will have user reviews. When looking at these reviews be sure to find reviews from people who are in the same genre and performance level as you are, or hope to someday be.

When you are looking for acoustic guitar reviews online there are certain things which you can do which can make the whole process of finding the right ones much easier. Firstly when carrying out a search online place quotation marks around the phrase that you are using as your search criteria. So for acoustic guitar reviews you would type in to the search box "acoustic guitar reviews".

If you are doing a search on Yahoo, using this phrase will reduce the search results given from around 17 million for acoustic guitar reviews without the quotation marks to just over 6000 when the quotation marks have been used. You can also use this trick when you are searching for individual acoustic guitar reviews. For example, if you are looking for reviews relating to the Martin DX1. By putting in martin dx1 (with no quotes) in a Yahoo you will get around 38,000 search results, but by typing in "martin dx1" you will end up with around 10,000 search results instead.

Another trick that you can do when searching for reviews relating to acoustic guitars add a plus sign (+) right up against the word or phrase that you want to have in each result you get. Doing this you will be able to further specify exactly what it is you are searching for. Just by typing in "Martin dx1 review" will end up in you getting a total of nine results. This is because you will only be provided with those sites that have the exact phrase in them that you keyed in initially.

In addition, another good idea when searching for acoustic guitar reviews is to mix up the way in which the words are phrased. For example if you type in to the search bar "martin dx1"+review you will find that you get around 500 search results compared to the previous 9. Also if you are looking certain information with regard to the instrument say you want to know a bit more about the action then include this word in your search criteria along with the plus sign.

By using these tricks, it will help you to find the specific acoustic guitar reviews that you want. This in turn will hopefully make the decision as to which one you buy much easier.
