I have played the guitar before. I know a few chords and some songs to play. I have owned 2 guitars before, both of them were gifts from my parents. The first guitar was stolen. The second guitar was broken to the point that you can’t tune one of the strings on it, so I did not bring it with me when I came to America.
Last year, I had surgery on my right wrist, a plate and some screws were placed. I also dislocated my right elbow. Now I have recovered some functions in my right hand and I wanted to try to play the guitar again. This could help me regain some fine motor skills for my injured hand. But first, I need a guitar.
I have saved a few of my free Amazon Giftcards that I have earned from the apps and websites I use. Then I started searching for a guitar on the Amazon store. I am no guitar expert, so I do not know what to look for in a new guitar. All I wanted was an acoustic guitar that has a brand that I know with steel strings. I only know a few: Yamaha, Fender and Ibanez.
Then I found the Fender FA-100 acoustic guitar. I was looking at a bundle of the FA-100 on Amazon. It has a tuner, 3 guitar picks, strap, strings and a gig bag. It had a 4.3 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon with 472 customer reviews and it is also an Amazon’s Choice item, so I decided that it will be a good guitar to start playing again. There were 4 different colors/designs available and I liked the black colored guitar.
Together with the guitar I also bought a guitar capo and a Lodge silicon hot handle holder for my wife. These 2 items together cost $10.98 without taxes.
The total amount for the guitar was $159.99 without taxes. Adding everything had a total of $170.97 without tax. After taxes I had a total of $182.96 which I paid using my Amazon gift cards.
When I got the guitar I made an unboxing video on youtube: https://youtu.be/Xu_PH6evtuU
I also made a video to test the guitar out: https://youtu.be/7HGgkhXIxaI
Next, I’m going to purchase a guitar stand on Amazon.
