Choosing the right first guitar can be difficult. One must first consider the style of music he wants to pursue. A lot of folk, country and blues were originally played on acoustic guitars. Rock, modern country and several other styles are most often played on electric guitars. The booklet about starting with an electric guitar is that it requires more equipment than just the guitar itself to be heard. You will need an amplifier and 1/4 inch instrument cables. The same thing is true for many beginner companies and has cost-effective models for both electric and acoustic players.
Fender Squier Stratocaster
This popular electric guitar is the most basic of the Fender family. Made from cheaper materials and electronics than the Stratocaster, the guitar still has a humbucker and two simple recordings that give this instrument a wide range of tones. Its electronics can be easily upgraded if a player chooses to move to the next level and has the same classic stylings as the more expensive Stratocaster. Squier Stratocaster is a good bargain for the low price it carries.
Yamaha FX 335
Yamaha FX 335 is an acoustic guitar that embodies many of the classic elements of an acoustic guitar but still has built-in electronic elements that can enable amplification. It is made with a spruce top and a rosewood fingerboard. It is a basic acoustic guitar but delivers at the price – another good first step guitar.
Epiphone Les Paul Special II
Les Paul Special II is the most basic of the iconic Les Paul series of guitars. This solid electric guitar has two humbuckers that give the guitar a thicker sound than the Stratocaster. It is made of materials that are cheaper than the higher lines of Les Pauls, but still have a decent look and sound suitable for a beginner.
