Best Electric Guitars For the Money
Best Choices for a New Guitar
For example, while most would agree that plywood is perhaps not the best material for guitar construction, some may feel that Ash always sounds best, others Mahogany, some even sing the praises of exotic woods such as Koa. And then there is the topic of pickups, and then there are the strings, and fret-size, and many other decision points. With the exception of the very wealthy, a typical guitarist in search of a new instrument will look to strike a balance between their wish-list of features and cost. Luckily, many guitar makers are more than happy to cater to you, offering instruments that provide this kind of balance, sometimes surprisingly well.

Choosing the Best Electric Guitar
Firstly the title might be slightly misleading, no electric guitar can claim to be the best and because of the variation in sound that comes from many different electric guitars, it does come a lot down to the opinion of the guitarist and audience as well as choosing a best electric guitar to suit the type of music that particular guitarists play.
But a few guidelines to the choices available and my personal opinion of the best brands.

Choosing the Best Electric Guitar For You
When it comes to choosing the best electric guitar, many considerations come into play. The best guitar for me may, for a variety of reasons, not be the best guitar for you. Why is that? For the simple reason that we are not all built the same way and neither are guitars.
When evaluating guitars, price is usually a major concern. Most of us are operating within a budget and a Gibson Les Paul Custom, even a used one on Amazon is going to set you back a cool. You can still find excellent guitars available for less than $200, so don't think that just because a guitar is expensive that it's going to be right for you. My advice is to find the best instrument for you and then save up your money if necessary.
Probably the most important features of a guitar are tone and playability. These two factors vary widely from instrument to instrument. A single-coil Fender Stratocaster made from an alder is going to sound different from a mahogany-bodied Gibson Les Paul equipped with humbucking pickups. The single-coil pickups will give it a sweet, pure, rich tone. Great for playing the blues. The humbuckers will be more suitable for the rock or metal music genres (although one can... More

Best Electric Acoustic Guitars
An acoustic-electric guitar belongs to the acoustic family rather than an electric guitar family. The best Electric acoustic guitar is steel-string guitars that are fitted with pickups rather than using a separate microphone like an acoustic model.
The pickups are piezoelectric pickups, Piezoelectric pickups are best known as the under saddle pickups used to amplify acoustic guitars. Sometimes seen referred to as "Electrets" and the first company to design crystal pickups was Brush Development Company in the 1910s although they never actually made them themselves commercially but rather licensed the concept. Piezoelectric pickups are pickups that create a signal through its actual vibration.
They are regarded as acoustic guitars rather than electric guitars because the pickups do not produce a signal directly from the vibration of the strings, but rather from the vibration of the guitar top or body. Guitarists have long been troubled by electric acoustic amplification, which tends to suffer from excessive feedback and poor sound quality. Much traditional piezoelectric acoustics produce a poor ribbon transducer sound that does not necessarily replicate a true acoustic... More

Best Beginner Acoustic Guitars---Buying Tip
Every guitar student should practice with good quality, affordable instruments. The best beginner best electric acoustic guitar is not necessarily the most expensive instrument. Looking to purchase your first acoustic guitar? Surely you have already read a few online guitar reviews. While reviews can be helpful, they can be overwhelming and lack a holistic, informed perspective. As an instructor, I always say that one's first guitar should accent the player in form, fit and function.
Buying Tip #1
Guitar Materials: The guitar top material is the most important component of the guitar's body materials. A solid wood top compares much more favorably than a laminate top, as evidenced in many guitar reviews. Guitar tops can be made of various kinds of wood (the top wood), and each wood type has a different effect on the sound of the instrument. Sitka spruce is a popular choice and produces a powerful, direct tone with strong clarity - even when the instrument is played loudly. While more expensive, the Engelmann spruce has a more complex tone than the Sitka spruce, but it also lacks the Sitka's clarity. A good, very affordable top wood option is basswood, which exhibits...

The emergence of the internet has made it far easier to find the acoustic-electric guitar for sale, despite this fact, many guitarists are still settling for paying far more than they need to for their instrument. This article is aimed at showing those of you intent on buying a new guitar with the best places to do so.
My favorite places to find bargain acoustics are high street music stores, many of you may be surprised at this, seen as though I generally advise people to buy their instruments online. But the fact is if you can buy at the right time, you will be able to take advantage of some really great discounts. I actually took advantage of two separate 50% off discounts running at the same time; the first was an introductory offer which slashed 50% off the asking price of a particular model, whilst the second was a 50% off sale being run by the store itself, which offered all acoustics guitars for half price. You simply can't get those types of freak offers on the web, and although the internet is the perfect place to find cheap guitars, I doubt they'd ever offer a 75% discount!
Anyone looking to find used instruments needn't look any further than pawn... More

The Best Acoustic Guitar Cases For Your Money
You really enjoy playing your best acoustic guitar, and you know that you'll be taking it on the road with you from time to time. You also know that you want to take good care of your investment and that you're going to want to protect it from the nicks, scrapes, and dings that it can encounter on the road. You've decided to start looking at acoustic guitar cases, but you are unsure of exactly what to take into consideration when buying one. Although it may be a hard decision to make, it is beneficial to take some time and consider what your options are when choosing a way to protect your guitar.
The first thing that you need to consider is whether you are going to get a hardshell case or a softshell gig bag. The hardshell case will give you the most protection, as its custom-molded interior will not allow the guitar to move around, and the hard shell will protect the best from bumps and scrapes. This particular style of case, however, will be the bulkiest and most cumbersome to lug around with you. A nice added feature is that many hardshell cases have a combination lock on them so that only you can open them.
The next and more economical option is the soft shell... More
