42 Johnson

I have a Johnson and works fine!

I have my Johnson acoustic-electric guitar that I bought in US and if I'm not mistaken my Johnson is 10 years old now or maybe more than 10.

From what I've heard, Johnson guitars have great tuning ability and sound like shear perfection.

43 Aria


because I hate kasuga! their just imitations of gibson les pauls!
plus I have a custom aria!
its purple with a gold marble plate, built-in tuner, and in the dots there are LED lights!
Solid copper tuning keys!
mahogany neck!

I've had an aria guitar for the last 40 years, it's a great sounding well balanced instrument. I've played a lot of other, better brand names like gibsons and martins, mine is just as good, if not better.

My first guitar, and also my dads. It's been in my basement since 86, and it still sounds great (after being retuned)

44 Kasuga

ok everyone kasuga guitar is the best its better than epiphone and stuff my guitar teacher said and he is so good so I think he knows what he is talking about so year go kasuga

Over 30 years of playing different guitars the Kasuga I had in the late 1970s was the best and I was a total idiot for getting rid of it.

Kasuga's is the top guitar brand it has such good sound and are a rare guitar I have 1 and nothing will beat it I recommend this guitar brand to every 1 they are so good just unbeatable so vote for them 2 and add comments - Smith

Great guitars. Massively under rated. Check out Kasuga Guitars on Face Book

45 Fernando

It is a great choice! Vote this guys. Trust me you will love its sound quality. Its worth it guys! Please vote this guitar best model too! And designs

This one is great! This brand should be next to Yamaha.. I just can't believe it's down low.. My friend has a Fernando guitar and I have a Yamaha.. Both just sound great..

I am not a pro musician but I know when an instrument sounds good or not and I must say Fernando is a great buy. It has an affordable price for an awesome sound. You will never regret buying one especially their acoustics.

Great guitar and sound

46 Stagg

My first and only guitar currently is a stagg and I'm in love with it. there is nothing majorly wrong with a stagg and I'm proud to say I own one. it serves me well in my work and that's all I could ask for

I recently purchased a stagg and the clarity is amazing even though I bought it used I still love it I plan to give it a new coat of paint and fix it up a little

I have a les paul copy stagg and it has served me well as my first guitar, it sounds pretty decent as well.

My First and best Guitar.🎸

47 Lakewood

Have you seen them... You could even design your own in almost every way... Great sound but you would expect that when you could be spending £5000 on one but I'd say that's worth it for the acoustic of your dreams... Check out the site

Lakewood guitar is the best!

It is beautiful and its sound quality and its woods

Where I will get this guitat.

48 Pluto

I'm playing Pluto past 3 months ago.. This is my 5th guitar. It sounds very good, well furnished and beautiful look...

The best acoustic for anyone. I have been using it for 2 years and it sounds like lakewood. It is even better than gibson. It has a nice standard look and easy to tune for it's better sound quality

I like the sound of pluto's acoustic.
its better than my 1st guitar and many other brands

Very nice sound.awesome

49 Richwood

By far the best bang for the buck. These guitars are beautifully made with good attention to details such as fret ends, bridge fit and neck joints. They also have wonderful finishing and are made from quality materials. The 'snob' factor is the only thing against them, they are not Gibsons. Martin's or Fender's, BUT they do play just as well and quite frankly, only those with a good ear and perfect pitch could tell the difference in a rock environment. I have Fender, Gibson, Taylor, Columbus, Washburn, Squire and Maccaferri Guitars, as well as Richwood. Sadly like the great majority of guitarists, the guitars themselves are more capable than I am, and I am happy to admit it. Having an exceptional guitar will not make you an exceptional guitarist, just as a more professional camera won't make you a professional photographer. The Richwood Artist / Master series of guitars are good, believe me! For the average guitarist, pro or am, you can buy more expensise guitars but not better as far ...more

50 Granada

I have been using it since 3 years. It is not even costly. Its good looking and I think its even better than gibson. It even very easy to tune for it has a very good sound quality. More over it has a beautiful look like a guitar. Even a beginner should be advised to buy this guitar for it cost a minimum of 3000 rs. So as it is less costly and more quality it's the best for me. I even like lakewood but its cost is just my dream.

I am using it since 3 years. They really make good guitars with good sound in an affordable price.

I have a Granada guitar... It is a great GUITAR! It sounds very well...

I am a professional guitarist and I have been using this since 5 yrs. It's really good and it's good for the beginers too. It's often very easy to play and use. This guitar is not costly and this guitar is best for me. I advise for the beginers to buy Granada guitar.

51 Lumanog Guitars

Lumanog is very under rated, for me they make the best acoustic guitars far better than brands up there, and most of all, it is all in the package, low prices and best quality!

#1 in the Philippines. This guitar brand is legendary! Made of quality wood, and gives you quality sound! I have 2 of 'em cause I really trust this guitar brand.

I have 3 of these, not all workers have the same hands, so its up to you to choose the best guitar on the wall.. If your lucky you might end up buying one as good as le paul or even gibson..

I have this guitar too

53 Fernandes

Fernandez is a real under-rated brand. They have a wide variety of body styles, and there's one for every budget. They have great sound and some amazing finishes. Plus, they have the sustainer pickup, who doesn't want infinite sustain?

My Monterey Elite has proved to be my dream electric guitar. Its sound is incredible, it plays perfectly, it feels amazing, it looks beautiful, and the sustainer pickup is awesome! And of course, I've also installed a Roland GK-3 pickup to make the rest of my dreams come true... - pinkdroyd

Really underrated brand, but the ones in Japan are better especially customs like hide ARTIST MODEL from X Japan. They look almost exactly like B.C. rich MOCKINGBIRDS

I have a Fernandes I love it's feel and sound

Good quality for a reasonable price and nice sound!

56 Hamer

I've used my Hamer Monaco Elite as my primary electric guitar for some time now. It's easy to forget the intoxicating feeling you get when you play it, even though you play every single day. Every time you open the case or look at it hanging on the wall it just takes your breath away with it's beauty. Also the quality of work is truly incredible. Hand build, hand carved top, manually painted. The binding round the neck covers the ends of the frets and the depth of the flamed maple top is deep as an abyss.

Of course, as with every opinion, this is entirely objective but I just can't imagine a guitarist being disappointed with a Hamer. I've played at least six Hamers from different time-periods and they are all equally desirable in my opinion.

Putting Gibson in first place is nothing but a mistake. Yes, Gibson makes good guitars (some really good) but the amount of lemons they make is just way too high to put them on top, and I'm not only talking about the cheaper ones. ...more

I currently use a Hamer (American made) Artist, with the F hole with honey finish. It is by far the most beautiful and smooth playing guitar I have ever played. I've played every electric guitar at guitar center priced from $1,000-$3,000 and I ended up buying a Hamer from Wolfe Guitars in Jupiter, Florida. (BEST SHOP EVER)

Hamer is literally the top of the line. Similar to a PRS, but better playability, quality of craftsmanship, and overall you can tell it was made in a shop of just a few individuals (less then 40 workers).

Last I heard, they don't produce them after fender bought them. If you can get your hands on it, BUY IT

Indescribably better than 95% of the other brands on here. Hamer is below First Act? Seriously? What 'tards designed this list!?!?!

Excellent guitars. I have three US models, Sunburst & two Diablos... Diablo is the most underrated guitar on the planet, buy one if you can.

57 Larrivée Guitars

There is no better sounding acoustic guitar for the money. I've had one for 10 years now, never kept an acoustic more than 3 years before.

The wood quality and craftsmanship is second to none. You ha e to get off the main road to find the real guitars.

Simply the best in acoustic guitars, sold my hummingbird and my Taylor for one of these babies

60! Why so low! This defiantly deserves top 10 at least! As a matter of personal opinion I have a Larrivee RS-2 and I would take another Larrivee over a Gibson Les Paul any day of the week!

58 Hofner

Les paul, hofner, prs, gretsch, taylor, martin, and rickenbecker should be in the top ten... And why is first act even in the list at all! Stupid people put first act there.

their guitars are hand made in germany thta have so much quality to them its not even funny
- maxwarawa

I have one of these, I took it from the dump and I think its an old model but it was in good condition so I fix some quite damage. now I use to play songs everyday and it gives me a truly amazing sound.

My Hofner was a gift from a neighbor and it was broken, but after I fixed it, it sounded great!

59 Hagstrom

I play on an Ultra Swede and the sound is just perfect! You can play everything from Metallica to George benson with just one guitar! Believe me when I say that Hagstrom sounds better than Fender or Gibson!

I have a Hagstrom F20T and a Hagstrom Viking Deluxe, they are 2 of the best guitars I have ever played. The Viking is elegant and looks regal compared to many other guitars. It plays like a dream, and stands up to Hagstroms claim of the fastest neck. The sound is incredible, especially for the price, it is most definitely the best semi-hollow body guitar for the money, in my opinion. All in all, Hagstrom is an amazing brand and anyone who has played one can attest to that.

Never seen any laminated top hagstrom. Sounds perfect, low action, thin neck (perfect for small hands)

I had the Signature Model from Pat Smear and I think is one of the best guitars I've ever played

60 Samick

Is good and nice guitars, like fender or prs sound...
But with low budget... Nice for Samick guitars..
8 for 10 for samick...

This should be the number one because Fifteen years ago, a lot of, but certainly not all, Epiphone
Guitars as well as other brands like Squier, were made at the Samick factory in

My um4 is really great for gigs... I actually love Samick um series

Nice touch with beautiful sound
