I checked the link out and that guitar is pretty, but also expensive. Especially when I’m a college kid without a job. But if I had one, I’d probably just start plucking the strings and figuring things out. That’s what I’m doing with my digital camera, a Nikon D3100 DSLR.
If you change your mind you can always find a cheap guitar at a flea market. New is always better, but you never know If you’ll stick with it.
You can always get a new guitar at the Guitar Center, or other music centers, for around $200. They usually come with extra strings, an electronic tuner, a soft travel case, and a get started dvd (though lessons are better). Also, if you search YouTube, there are videos to help beginners. Marty Schwartz is pretty good with his beginner’s lessons.
As a music lover I’m just throwing that out there.
