Definitely. The biggest problem in that price range is quality control. You can pick up 10 "identical" guitars and they'll range from absolute crap to perfectly decent. The trick is patience, and trying lots of instruments. And as someone above said, beginners don't know nothing about what makes a guitar good. When I bought my first guitar, it was really helpful to have someone who was experienced help me pick. I'd play to see how it felt, and he'd play so I could hear what it would sound like when I knew something, and he was able to help me with things like figuring out when a good guitar just needed a new set of strings, versus when the instrument was actually manufactured poorly.
