Are you just starting out on your musical path? If so, the first thing to decide is which instrument you'd like to play.

Then, find out which instruments it features and you'll have a great starting point to inspire your selection. All that's left then is to look through the options for the instrument you've chosen until you find the one that really speaks to you. Want a little guidance starting out? Consider a bundle, such as the Rogue Learn the Banjo Starter Pack or Rogue Learn-the-Mandolin Package. With these, you'll get a great beginner's instrument as well as a gig bag and some helpful instructional materials: everything you need when starting from scratch.
For the more experienced player, there's an impressive range of high-end instruments to choose from. A few of the names that you'll find here are Martin, Ovation, Deering, Gibson and Taylor, which sort of reads like a "who's who" list of stringed instrument makers specializing in guitar, banjo, mandolin and more. With beauties like the Deering 5-Deluxe 5-String Banjo or Gold Tone Beard Signature Series Resonator Guitar at your side, you'll be all set to follow in the footsteps of folk music's greatest hall-of-famers.
