That's the edge of carbon fiber acoustic guitars.
  • ♫ SOLID BUILD & EASY TO PLAY - The body of Nova Go is 1/2 sized (35 in.), molded all in one piece, meaning that the bridge is a cohesive part of the top, not glued upon like traditional acoustic guitars. It would never snap or fall off. Meanwhile, we've put a truss rod into the neck, giving your more adjustability for the string action, even though the factory setup is already optimum.
  • ♫ ZERO FRET - Also, the "Zero Fret" feature is added to this acoustic guitar for smoother tuning, and fret ends are polished to round edges for a more comfortable hand feel. 5 colors available: black, white, pink, blue, purple.

Best Acoustic Guitar Under 400 Reviews 2021

Yamaha FG830

Yamaha FG830 Solid Top Folk Guitar, Natural
  • Solid sitka spruce top
  • Nato back & sides
  • Rosewood fingerboard
  • Rosewood bridge
  • Diecast tuners

The Yamaha FG830 is a beautiful guitar that has a surprisingly good sound for its price. It is very light and easy to play with. The neck is not too large or small, which makes it an even better choice for someone who has smaller hands.

The sound is also rather well balanced–although it could be a little louder. The construction of the body and neck are very solid. The Yamaha FG830 has a wonderful guitar controller that can be easily operated on your phone.

Another good thing about this guitar is that it only takes 5 minutes to tune, where other guitars take more than 20 minutes to do so. It also looks exceptionally nice for its price range. This model is really suited for beginners who are trying to get into the guitar.

This is very lightweight, which makes it easier to handle than most acoustic guitars. The action (takeup) of the strings is low, making it suitable for someone who’s starting out on an acoustic.

It stays in tune remarkably well, which is a plus for people who are trying to get more serious about playing the guitar.

The sound is rich and full, even though it’s not very loud. This makes it ideal for someone who wants to play more quietly without buying an amplifier. This is really an ​excellent acoustic guitar. It has a wonderful tone and it’s lightweight yet sturdy.

The fretboard is easy to grip and it’s light enough that she can hold it up as long as she wants without getting too tired. It’s a good guitar for beginners and intermediate players alike.

Sometimes the cheapest option is the best option, and this is definitely one of those cases. It can go from soft melodies to loud rock solos with barely any effort on your part because the sound quality is so high.

The fit and finish are excellent, so there are no sharp edges or rough frets on this guitar. The tuning pegs are solid and hold their tune well, too.

The only real complaints we have are the lack of a strap button (but that is easily remedied) and the action can be slightly high for people (like me) with larger hands.


– Lightweight and easy to play

– Incredibly well-balanced sound for this price range

– Comes in a variety of colors


– No strap button

– Action can be high for some people (but this is easily remedied)

The Fender CD-60S is a perfect choice if you are looking for an acoustic guitar that has good sound quality and good durability too. It’s the guitar that you can play on most of the time when you want to feel inspired by music.

The Fender CD-60S is a fantastic guitar to buy if you’re on a budget and want something that’s better than the cheap acoustic guitars. It’s not top quality but it does offer a nice, smooth sound and is easy to tune.

It’s also easy to play with. It comes with a padded gig bag, strap, and pick-holder all for under $400. It does not come with any accessories such as a strap or case so you’ll have to purchase those separately which can add on some costs.

This best acoustic guitar under 400 also doesn’t come with any tuners so we recommend getting some before purchasing the guitar since the headstock is very sensitive and adds on some challenges when tuning it.

Besides these minor problems, the Fender CD-60S is a pretty good deal for people who are on a budget and need an acoustic guitar.


– The mahogany body makes this instrument sound better

– There are no defects in the way it sounds

– It is easy to tune, even though the headstock is sensitive


– You have to purchase a separate case or strap for use if you want one

  • Spruce top with scalloped "X"-bracing, mahogany back and sides
  • Easy-to-play neck with rolled fingerboard edges
  • Walnut fingerboard and bridge
  • Includes hardshell case

The Fender CD-60 is a Dreadnought body style that has a spruce top with scalloped “X”-bracing. The back and sides of the dreadnought are mahogany. The fretboard is made of walnut. It comes with a hardshell case that has a hand orientation of right-handed.

Some of the features on this guitar are an easy-to-play neck with rolled fingerboard edges, walnut fingerboard, and bridge, and comes in three different hand orientations.

The sound of this best acoustic guitar under 400 is very clear and has a nice overall tone to it. It also feels very comfortable when playing it due to the rolled fingerboard edges.

We think the price of this guitar is very fair for what you are getting out of it. It also sounds great and looks beautiful which makes for a good deal overall.

Although we understand why some people might not be crazy about Fender guitars due to them being mass-produced, the CD-60 seems like a nice step up from budget guitars.

This dreadnought sounds great and has many nice features for a reasonable price, in our opinion. The overall tone that the CD-60 produces is warm and vibrant with a clear sound that can generate a lot of volumes.

It does exactly what it should do by being able to project the sound well without any issues in clarity. The action on the guitar is also not bad and has a more comfortable feel than some other guitars.

The sound is rich, deep, and full of character. It’s great for rock, blues, or country playing. It is also perfect for strumming chords softly to accompany your singing voice.

The guitar is very easy to play. The action is smooth, comfortable, and low enough for tenor players like me. There are no buzzing notes in the lower frets, which is something we really appreciate in this price-range instrument.

The price of this best acoustic guitar under 400 is very reasonable when looking at the quality it has to offer. At under $400, you are getting an awesome-sounding and looking acoustic guitar that plays amazing for its price range.

One thing we noticed while playing this guitar is that it does not fatigue my hand as some others do due to the rolled fingerboard edge, which makes it more comfortable for longer practices and sessions.

One downside is that some people might find the guitar to be a bit heavy due to its size and weight, but that is just an issue with most dreadnought guitars.

Also, another thing we noticed is that some people might not care for the larger fret wire on the CD-60, even though it does make it easier to play overall.

In summary, if you want a nice dreadnought guitar that has a good tone, comfortable setup, and overall nice sound then we would recommend trying out the Fender CD-60.


– Great sound and volume projection

– Comfortable feel to play

– Easy access to the upper fretboard

– Good price point for what you are getting

Factors To Consider When Choosing Best Acoustic Guitar Under 400

When you are choosing Best Acoustic Guitar Under 400, there are many things to consider. Here is how to choose the acoustic guitar under 400:

1) Size of your hands and fretboard

The first thing you should know before buying a guitar is what size your hands are. A smaller person with small fingers will have trouble playing on a full-sized guitar because their fingers won’t be able to stretch far enough up the neck.

On the other hand, someone with large hands would find it difficult or even impossible to play on a smaller model because they wouldn’t be able to reach across the strings easily.

So if you have small hands, buy an electric or travel-sized guitar; if you have larger hands, buy a full-sized acoustic guitar.

2) Wood type and quality

When purchasing an acoustic guitar under 400, it’s important to make sure the wood is high quality.

The better the wood, the better the sound. If you want to avoid cracks and other such problems when playing your guitar, just get one made out of high-quality wood. A good, solid top is also crucial to getting the best acoustic sound.

3) Pickups

At some point, you will want to plug your guitar into an amplifier or possibly a recording device. To do this, you’ll need to buy either a magnetic or piezo pickup separately and attach it to your guitar.

Magnetic pickups are usually placed underneath the strings, while piezo pickups are always attached under the saddle. The former cost more but give you a much richer sound than just straight acoustic, which is great for recording or if you can’t afford an amplifier at this stage.

They also do not need batteries to operate whereas the piezo pickups do. This is a big advantage in the long run because you won’t have to worry about batteries going dead at a critical moment during a performance.

4) Brands

There are so many brands of acoustic guitars out there that it might be hard to choose one over the other. If you want quality, go with a well-known brand such as Yamaha or Takamine.

You can’t go wrong with those kinds of guitars, and you should be able to get a good one for less than 400 dollars. If you want a cheaper guitar but still have a high-quality sound, then check out the Alvarez line from Ibanez.

They have a great variety of guitars at a reasonable price, and they have been around for quite a while.

5) Extras

You will want to buy extra picks, a guitar case or bag, and a tuner if you don’t already have one. If you plan to do any traveling with your instrument, you should also invest in a small, lightweight travel guitar to take along.
