6 Cool Acoustic Guitars For Dads Who Want to Rock

I’ve had a lifelong dream to play the guitar. Listening to my guitar heroes Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Prince instilled in me a passion for music. Unfortunately, my mother couldn’t afford to buy me a guitar or pay for lessons. When I started working and had the money to purchase an instrument, I never had the time to learn how to play.

On my 40th birthday, I decided to invest in myself and do the things I had put off. I marched into a local guitar store and purchased my first acoustic guitar – a dark red Yamaha APX700. Since then, I’ve taken guitar lessons and I continue to work on my playing skills. I’ve also managed to acquire a few more guitars and I’m constantly scouting new ones.

If you’re a dad who has always wanted to play the guitar, it’s not too late to get started. Check out this list of cool acoustic guitars and start rocking today.
