Best Starter Electric Guitar BrandsThese are electric guitar brands that are the most AFFORDABLE, DURABLE, and SOUND THE BEST for a children's, beginner, or entry level guitar in my humble opinion.
The Top TenXW
You can get an Excellent RG or an S series for a very reasonable prize and with care & love towards the instrument, you can definitely keep & play it for 20+ Years!
I don't have any Endorsement deals with Ibanez, but... For the Price, No Guitar Manufacturer gives the Best Components for the Given Price point like Ibanez does. All the Other Brands are Amazing! (Fender, Gibson, PRS, Jackson, ESP, because Rich, Charvel etc... ) but for the price you are getting the Best from IBANEZ! - Nirmal1991USA
I have an old ibanez from 1988, just a year after they came out and it still plays like its new!
You pay around $500-1,000 for a pro guitar that will last for years. Price is too expensive for most beginners. This earns it 7th place.
Has the best looks and a great if not the best sound. Worth every penny I spent on fender guitars
This is more versatile than Ibanez therefore this is the best starter brand
Really good I am grade 8 and still have my fender in good shapeV2 Comments
Amazing guitar, but pricy at $650-1,000.
The best starters guitar
Nothing can be campared to it
From soft rock to heavy metal you can play anything on it
I just love Paul Reed Smith! It's tones, quality and everything else! The performance is outstanding but all of them, even the SE edition is suitable for average guitar players not beginners. And they are not cheap also. So the best budget variants is either Ibanez, Epiphone or Fender Squire. Out of all of them I prefer Epiphone, which can maintain a great sound and performance thought long gigs and hours of practice. - artemgureev
Great tone, with or without distortion, durable, and are usally between $300-800 dollars. Could be considered a professional guitar, being almost up to par with Gibson. Good for all types of music/playing.
The Prophecy is virtually a Les Paul, and they can be found (after some searching) used for well under $1,000. You can't go wrong.
Really really great brandV4 Comments
Best I ever played the shapes given 2 dem warlock, beast, v, Virgo, virgin, etc. These guitars rock! How can someone keep them 7
Because Rich is an awesome brand... guitars have great look, sound and they are nice to playV1 Comment
Price ranks it below Squire, but is overall a better guitar. Great for hard rock and metal.
My first guitar. Squire's sound great, are very affordable ($200-800), and are extremely durable. Good for rock, jazz, blues, hard rock, and pop.
The Best guitars for beginners! I have one of those, but I am getting a fender USA in a few days. So this is the first guitar for you!
First electric was squire. Sounded pretty good for the price. Quality was fair, but for a beginner, it was acceptable.
The price is quite cheap and it sounds quite good. My first guitar is also a Squier.V3 Comments
Great for shredding! Usually they have very hot pickups, so they are good with heavier strings (Regular-Heavy gauge). ($300-900) Great for metal.
You either love 'em or you haven't played one. Obvious way to go for metal. Really good quality. I love my Gus-600. - dragonzrmetal
Cool looking but bad quality unless you buy one that is $500 plus. Good for all metal.V1 Comment
Quality rock guitar for around $700-1,000. Price is once again the killerV1 Comment
