81 Suhr

I have a Suhr strat like, and its amazing.. playability, how it responds, complexity of sound, so well balanced.. the best guitar I played

Suhr makes some of the most versatile and great guitars, just look at how many top guitar player use them (mostly fusion ones)

No comparison guthrie govan plays it its the best

Amazing build quality, Suhr, guitars are works of art, and unfortunately cost as much as a rare one. Played a lot of guitars in my time, Suhr was hands down the best, and that's taking nothing away from any other manufacturer on the list.

If there's truth to the saying you get what you pay for, then you get a lot.

82 Spear

Excellent guitar for the price! They're what Ibanez was 30 years ago in some ways. New styles, great pickups & great sound. Definitely an up & comer.

Amazing Guitars at Amazing Prices! My les-paul style Spear outplays any epiphone clone, hands down. Good humbucker pickups right from the factory, good maple top, and a nice heavy solid body. The set-neck is a plus as well!

I sold my Gibson standard sg because it was collecting dust after I bought my first Spear. I now own 4 Spear guitars.

83 Chapman

Chapman guitars re great value because of no 2nd man and they are a dream to play, why is it down here I do not know.

Might not be well known but the they make very good guitars and support small bands instead of large bands finally they were founded by the owner of the best music based YouTube channelse in the world rob Chapman

Chapman's have a beautiful sound, versatile, good quality for the most part, should definitely be higher on the list.

84 Walden

I own an acoustic Walden- it is probably the best guitar that I have ever used. Crisp perfect sound.
I literally love it, it is a shame that there are not more of these beautiful guitars around

This one should be right up at the top 10. it is bound to be up there in the future surely though, with the guitars they've been making. everyone who owns a walden, loves it, sounds just as good as any other guitar out their at much lower prices

Walden guitars - super sound! Affordable. What more can you say.

Great guitars

I have a martinez guitar and I have no regret!

86 Vintage

Amazing guitars for the price, these guitars can equal guitars with a price tag twice as high, I own the v100bb which has a mahogany body with a set mahogany neck and its just amazing. I've also owned 2 epiphones and compared to them it definitely as good as them in terms of sound and build quality

I think the vintage are better than others brands at least in the v100 and the new paradise model with zebras really looks very good. I don't like the cutaway because is so sharped but in general I put this brand les paul models over the tokais models...

I went out to buy an Epiphone and came back with a Vintage. I know - I was surprised too. I preferred the playability and sound of the VSA535 to its counterparts in a similar price range. There's a 12-string version which I'm tempted to look at too. Trevor Wilkinson knows what he's doing.

Good guitars/basses and quite well priced and sturdy and well built

88 Indie

A really high quality guitar brand from England I believe they started manufacturing guitars in 2008. Only good reviews

I have a few Indie's and I have yet to find anything that holds up better. I sold all my Gibsons and a PRS as they can't keep up. I think this brand is the best kept secret in the guitar industry today.

I have an Indie FDL. Everyone who's played it prefers it to their Gibson Les Pauls. Lovely action, great humbucking sound, beautiful sustain.

89 Warwick

For bass Electric rock session This Brand Shakes the stage from four to Six string arrangement... The Germans have nailed it 100%

90 Jay Turser

I have a Jay Turser Jt-50 and it sounds pretty good great guitar for its price range.

I really think Jay Turser should be in the top ten, great soud, good quality, and good price

I have a Jay Turser JT-220D and it sounds amazing. Jay Turser guitars have their own special noise! And for the price it's even more amazing. Should be in top 10.

91 Cole Clark

At Cole Clark Guitars, we've applied a new understanding to an age old art. Like you, we appreciate the sound and feel of a great steel string guitar, one that reflects and projects the emotion you put into your music.

Great guitars require great tone woods, and we select our timbers with care. Even our most basic model acoustic is made from all solid timbers. Our patented manufacturing method applies the finest of control to each instrument we make, so that every instrument can be loud and lively and subtle and soft.

Play one at your local dealer. Whack it! Caress it! You'll find that it responds in kind to your touch. String response and articulation are excellent. You can option your guitar with our new pickup system. We believe this to be the best pickup yet offered. Big claim? Listen to it, then tell us what you think.

I admit I fell in love with the look of the Bunya pine and Blackwood (trees I can see outside my window) even before my fingers picked the strings. Used to play a Fender and an Ovation but for beautiful tone and a heavenly sound when plugged in you can't beat a Cole Clark guitar. Yes I am proud that the best guitars are made here in Australia (Matons are awesome too)

Own three, culprit 1 and 111 Duncan pups standard, plus a Guardian, quality woods and components, well made aussie guitars, more bang for my buck compared to my American made telecaster.

The best I've ever played A++

I was bought this guitar by my father, it is a nice shape and sound, but, I am not sure about the make, has anyone heard of it before or knows anything about it, thanks

Have been using them for quite a few years, and I have to say they are good value for money, reliable and good customer service if needed.

Bought my first bass a lindo, Fine make, great sound. Love the enameled birds down the neck.

This isn't a brand, it's a guitar made by Fender

Great tone great price. It has potential and with just a few tweaks it can be a great guitar. I have one and I live it.

97 Jixing Guitars

I love jixing guitars most

Super starter guitars..

98 Boss
99 Framus

Amazing guitars, I found them better than Gibson.. Probably one of the most underrated guitars of the last ten years

I own a Framus Tennessee the best, mellow or hard its up to you. Quality! Quality! Beautiful fast neck, superb hollow body, great humbuckers and tremm bar. Very good value for money.

It's like an old Mercedes Benz... Excellent built, solid, nice sound, finest materials, expensive... Was the perfect gift for myself... You will have to try one to understand what I'm saying...

German made.Impeccable quality

100 Freedom

Freedom is one awesome guitar, how do I prove that? Well a good guitar has high frets, comfortable neck, thick and hard body, and awesome strings. Freedom also rocks when it comes to designs, so this is something I recommend for all kinds of guitarists.

I think freedom guitars have a great sound and its got a comfortable action. I would recommend it for any guitarists

Feels good and sounds great. I have many guitars and this is probably one of the best. Freedom guitars are also excellent with their stunning looks

Better than Gibson and fender combined
