I’m sure my daughter would love to receive a guitar as a birthday present. We were in fact looking for some affordable brand as early as December, but the fund intended for the guitar was used for another purpose.
We visited some stores and we were amazed to find out so many different guitars being sold in the market right now. There are imported ones like the M-Audio family of products. We may consider buying the locally made brand (as our way of supporting our local guitar makers). The local brands are of equal quality but are way cheaper than imported guitars.
