Best Electric Guitars For Beginners

Jay Turser Lt Series

"It sounds like a high end guitar. The best thing is the price, it's really cheap. I like tremelo's on my guitars, but I didn't even notice that this one didn't have one. It's great without it. They finally sent the color in the photo as well. The color is actually more ivory than white like it looks like in the photo. I was expecting this. I am just happy it wasn't yellow. It looks exactly like a piano key finish, very high quality."


Epiphone Special II

"The Epiphone Special II is a great way for beginners to get started on guitar with real, Les Paul tone, but seasoned pros love the Special II because it's a great-sounding, workhorse guitar that lets them leave their more expensive axes at home. The authentic LP power starts with all-Mahogany construction with a Rosewood fingerboard and is voiced by a pair of hot open-coil 700T and 650R Humbucker pickups."


Squier by Fender

"This set features a great-sounding, sweet-looking and easy-playing Squier SE Special guitar with three single-coil pickups; plug it right into the included 10-watt Squier SP-10 amp with headphone jack. Accessories include an instructional DVD, an electronic tuner, guitar strap, gig bag, guitar cable, guitar stand and picks—everything you need to Stop Dreaming and Start Playing!"


Starcaster by Fender

"Fender Starcaster Strat Packs deliver a great-sounding, sleek-looking Stratocaster electric guitar paired with a compact but still-mighty guitar amplifier and a host of essential accessories. This Strat Pack includes a black Stratocaster guitar, strings, picks, a strap, Squier SP-10 amp, and a 10-foot cable."


Jackson JS1R

"The no-frills, bare-bones edition of the immortal Dinky, this time with a reverse headstock. Dual Jackson JE10 humbucking pickups and fulcrum bridge. Also features a compound radius fingerboard and 22 jumbo frets."
