I have been on Musician's Friend's list for a while, and when it gets the end of the year, they have some nice end of year sales.

I wanted to pick up a beginner's Nylon String guitar for a while, so I picked up a newbie
fullsize (4/4) guitar today.

The (4/4) (3/4) and (1/4) size is $49.99 including free shipping, the smaller (1/2) sized is $46
I went with a 4/4 full sized guitar. I thought even if this lasts 3 years and I stick with it it would have paid for itself.

The beginner's steel String bargain guitar of the day is $49.99 with free shipping

Here is my link for the secret sale from their eMail, you can find lots of brands and instruments, and I don't know if the other stuff there are super super great deals, but for the ones I pointed out, they're really good deals if you wanted something to try out as a beginner.

They don't collect tax outside of Indiana, and free shipping is included.

I bought the rogue acoustic as a campfire guitar (not wanting to play by a fire with a $2000 martin, lol). Its actually not a bad guitar. Not something I'd use on a gig but definitely stands above other guitars in this price range. I always recommend against buying a cheapo acoustic because they are usually harder to play and thus can discourage a new player from learning. But this one just barely makes the cut in that regard.

If you had enough budget and wanted to go a few steps up from there, IMHO the leap in quality of the Yamaha F335 (also part of this sale) far outweighs the difference in price.

I have the "electric acoustic" cutaway version of this guitar and I do gig with that one (as a backup to my Martin).

BTW that one is also part of this sale if you wanted to nudge that budget even more and get one that you can plug into a PA/amp, plus the cutaway makes the higher frets easier to reach:

Thanks for the advice. I did buy the Yamaha F335 a few years ago for about $89 on Guitar center's X-Mas sale. I wanted to get a Nylon string this time. I was also advised last time that Rogue was pretty good (maybe slightly less good than Yamaha, but only from the quality control aspect).

When I bought the Yamaha F335 last time they had trouble meeting the demand, and they offered me the comparable Rogue with hardshell case, but I elected to just wait for them to fulfill the Yamaha order.
