Chapman’s Guitar has an expansive collection of acoustic guitars that will make you feel like a kid in a candy store. Acoustic guitars provide a distinct sound and some songs are best played using them. It can also be a great way to hone your skills.
This type of guitar is also perfect for those who want to jam on the go because it doesn’t require an amp to play. However, there are also models which can be played acoustically or plugged into an amp. Regardless of which kind you’re into, you’ll surely find something here that you’ll love!
Here are some of the best acoustic guitars that we offer here at Chapman’s Guitar:
If you’re looking for a guitar that can help you through the steep learning curve, we recommend the Epiphone DR-100. This trusty acoustic guitar can be your companion through the basics until you make your way through the more advanced lessons.
The reasons why we recommend this amazing guitar are its affordable price and sound quality. Only a few models can manage to combine these two and the DR-100 knocked it out of the park which isn’t surprising considering that Epiphone is one of the top brands of all time.
When it comes to beginner guitars, you wouldn’t want to settle for cheap models because they tend to not sound that great which makes the learning process that much harder. If you opt for something like this, you’ll enjoy learning because you can produce amazing sounds. Even after you master the art of guitar playing, you can still use this model on your journey towards stardom thanks to its high-quality sound.
Martin LX1E Little Martin
When it comes to acoustic guitars, Martin is one of the best brands to ever do it and this is thanks to their models such as the LX1E Little Martin which is the perfect on-the-go guitar. This model is the perfect example of the saying ‘big things come in small packages’ and it’s proven true thanks to its high-quality materials.
Starting from the body, it’s made from Sitka Spruce wood while the back and sides are from High-Pressure Laminate. These two materials are responsible for the full sound that you get when playing and the sturdiness of the overall guitar.
Moving over to the neck, you’ll find a unique Rust Birch Laminate. This coupled with a Richlite fretboard make this guitar a joy to play. Additionally, you can also plug this guitar into an amp.
This model is a favourite among musicians thanks to its convenient size and high-quality design. One of the most well-known musicians that famously played this particular model is Grammy-award winning artist, Ed Sheeran.
One of the best-sellers that we’ve had for the year 2021 is the Yamaha FG800 and for good reasons. Firstly, the materials used on this acoustic guitar exudes premium quality from head to body. A combination of Solid Spruce and Mahogany were used in the front and back of this guitar to produce high-quality sounds and keep it sturdy at the same time.
As for the neck and fingerboard, it’s made with mahogany and walnut, respectively. These materials aren’t just for show though as they’re carefully chosen to fully optimize guitar playing.
If you’re looking to improve from your beginner guitar, this may be the best option for you today. However, one downside that some players may have with this model is that it can’t be plugged into an amp because of the lack of electronics. But if you can look past that and you’re only looking for a pure acoustic guitar, this is a solid option for you.
Taylor GS Mini
You can’t have a list of acoustic guitars without mentioning the brand, Taylor. They are arguably the number one manufacturer when it comes to acoustic guitars and several artists such as Shawn Mendes, Jason Mraz, Tori Kelly and more will agree. With the GS Mini, the brand has proven once again why they’re the best.
This guitar may be small but don’t be fooled as it’s full of charm and quality. One of the main reasons why guitar players are drawn to this model is because of its unique sound that only Taylor can produce. As for the build quality, you can expect the same premium feel that the brand has been known for thanks to its use of different kinds of wood such as Ebony, Sapele, Solid Sitka Spruce and more.
Some guitarists may find this guitar familiar because it’s a sized-down version of their famous model which is the Grand Symphony-shaped acoustic. Thankfully, even though it was notably scaled-down, the quality wasn’t compromised making it one of the best mini-sized guitars that you can pick up today.
Chapman’s Guitar also has a wide range of electric guitars that are made by the biggest manufacturers in the industry. These models won’t disappoint in helping you create beautiful sounds that span across different genres while making you look cool in the process.
Whether you want to rock out or play some blues, here are some of the best electric guitars that we have on our shelves:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Epiphone is a company that makes their guitars exclusively in Gibson’s Chinese-based Qingdao factory. They’re also known to create variations of famous Gibson models but for only a fraction of the price. One of their signature models, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard is the perfect example of a budget guitar done right.
For only around 599/£499, you’ll be getting a great sounding guitar that also has an amazing build. It primarily makes use of Mahogany for the entire body and neck while the fingerboard that spans across all 22 frets is made from Rosewood.

On top of that, you’ll be playing one of the most iconic guitar models in the history of music. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard was played by the likes of Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day, Ace Frehley of KISS, Frank Iero of My Chemical Romance and more.
Squier Classic Vibe ’60s Stratocaster
If you’re just starting, chances are you’re going to be recommended with the classic Stratocaster made by Squier. Although you can opt for the Fender version if you have the extra budget, the one made by its more affordable brand, Squier is more than enough.
This guitar will exceed your expectations when it comes to the quality of sound and the overall build. Coming in at only $399/£339, you’ll be getting a model with an Alder body and a Maple neck which makes it feel amazing to play because of its comfort and premium feel.
Its single coils make it perfect for a variety of genres that span from pop-punk to country and more. However, if you’re looking for a heavier sound, this is not the model for you which is perfectly fine as everyone has their taste.
The Stratocaster is one of, if not the most iconic guitar model of all time. Ever since it was invented back in 1954, hundreds of artists have been seen using it to play their songs. This includes Tom Delonge of Blink 182, Eric Clapton, George Harrison of the Beatles and more.
Squier Bullet Mustang
Squier makes another appearance on this list and this time with their Bullet Mustang model. This electric guitar ticks all the boxes of a beginner guitar. For only $179/£115, you’ll be getting a solid sounding guitar that’s made out of Basswood and Maple.
For its price, it’s impressive how good and heavy the Bullet Mustang sounds. This is thanks to the dual humbuckers that can be found on the body which is capable of churning out full and heavy sounds.
Another thing that some guitarists may find appealing about this guitar is its unique design. It’s a great way to differentiate yourself from other players who are most likely playing Les Paul or Stratocaster-shaped guitars.
