Best Electric Guitar Brands

The Top Ten

1 Gibson

Made in the USA. No Mexico. Still the most popular brand of quality guitar today. It’s more than just a slab of wood with pickups like fender. You can get a Fender tone out of a first act guitar. Gibson has a solid tone you can feel with carved maple tops. Real deal.

Gibsons have an amazing sound and build quality

Gibson is the best in my opinion, a Gibson lespaul, greatest guitar, it plays to my hands and style much better than any other guitar I’ve tried, it’s great for its cost and it definitely should be tried by every musician at some point in your career

2 Fender

Fender is an all-around guitar and can play almost any song.

Fenders is a very common guitar brand they are pretty good
MADE IN USA for the most part


Kirk Hammett himself uses these guitars, so the quality has to be pretty good. I have one myself, and am quite content with it.

Esp should be number 1

4 Jackson

Amazing guitar brand!

5 Paul Reed Smith

PRS is the best for their feel and their versatility.

I've been to a PRS factory and seen the precision and skill with which they are made. Their quality control is incredible: they test each one individually and make adjusments until it is perfect. They won't let a bad one get through so if you buy a PRS guitar, you are guaranteed a high quality guitar. I mean, with the high price you pay, how could they not be wonderful? Plus, they sound, feel, and look amazing. (I also got to see Paul himself; it was pretty cool. What a nice, humble guy.)

Hands down the best modern electric guitars!

PRS are beautiful guitars, try and save your money for a private stock PRS they are so customisable
