@Valleyfiah- I would recommend buying a new guitar over a used guitar. A new guitar will be void of defects and will have a warranty. An inexperienced guitarist may miss critical hidden damage on a used guitar simply for the fact they do not know what to look for. You can also find great guitars that are new for less than what you can find one for used.
I recently bought a p-bass on managers special at my local guitar store. I could not pick the color, but I was able to buy a $650 dollar guitar for $299 simply because the store had kept it in inventory to long. Sometimes the unadvertised deals are there, and if you strike up a rapport with the salesperson, you can get him or her to call you when they have something worthwhile hit clearance.
