This has been inspired by Wanjigi's "small man" comment.


I wanted to buy someone a guitar to gift a relative on their birthday. An evil friend of a friend recommended this shop at Sarit Centre. Nilifika huko nikaona kama mabei ziko in Uganda Shillings!

Nilirudisha makende yangu Luthuli nikanunua guitar, bag, capo, strap, extra set of wires, plectrums at less than 15k.

CORT is a budget make and I own a nylon string variant of the one you showed, but it should cost no more than 40k, and perhaps 10k for a hard case.

On the other hand, what you bought at Luthuli for 15k is junk that is bound to fail and not inspire your beneficiary to any height.

These are the key words. But for anyone else start cheap, buy something expensive only when you can appreciate its value.
I plan to buy a piano, I intend to buy a cheap one for learning purposes. But later, perhaps a more professional one or even an organ...depending on where my (to be) skills lead me...
Usually see the grand pianos Weinstein, yani that thing just looks nice to have in the house
