Beginner Guitars have a few characteristics that usually make them more suitable for beginners than something higher up in the range.
Firstly, most beginner guitars are made at a more friendly price point, using materials that are easier to find. If it has electronics, they’re usually more simple, and easier for a beginner to use.
Commonly, a lot of younger people start out by playing a classical guitar, as nylon strings are the easiest to play and usually classicals can be had fairly cheaply. Normally we recommend a beginner aims for a classical or an electric, as steel string acoustics are probably the hardest to play out of the three types.
