Your best bet would either be a Sukar Oud or a factory-made Turkish Oud which are generally cheaper thus more suitable for beginners.

I like the most common type of Oud is an Arabic Oud. It is the most romantic sounding of all the Oud types. It has a deep, round, and well-balanced sound. The highest strings cut through and stick out through an ensemble, and the bass strings give a nice smooth rumble. Its  soundboard is thicker than Turkish Ouds in comparison. Overall like an Arabic Oud.

Turkish Ouds are fairly easy to spot. It is not always the case, but the soundboard is very rarely coated. It is usually a very light wood color most likely due to use of spruce. This is a very general ornament that might tell you immediately what kind of Oud you are looking for easy learning.
