10 best electric guitars for beginners
Now that you’ve decided to take up the electric guitar, only one question remains: What should I buy? It’s no easy task. Ask ten players out there for their ‘beginner guitar’ recommendations and you’ll likely get ten different answers. There are, after all, hundreds of models, each with its own strengths and shortcomings.
For those just starting out, however, we’ve decided to focus on a few factors: affordability, simplicity and versatility. A beginner’s guitar should be easy to learn on (no complicated switches!), neutral or flexible enough for a few styles (no one-trick ponies!), and reasonably priced (nothing above $600!). So we arrived at these 14 standard-issue models that you’ll find in almost every guitar store.
And if you need some help with the terminology or the basics on what to look out for, check out our guide to buying your first electric. Or hit up our recommended ‘value-for-money’ guitars, intermediate models, and axes under $200 and $500
