Best Beginner Electric Guitar

Introduction

On your quest to becoming a best beginner electric guitar player it will probably appear to be difficult for you to find the best beginner electric guitar for yourself in order to start learning to play. You may feel alone in the dark. So here are a number of best beginner electric guitars that come to mind at an affordable value to you. But they each have their own benefits and drawbacks and budget requirements along with my personal recommendation.

Squier Bullet Strat

  • Made in China
    • This guitar is a low quality product
    • Brand of Squier owned by Fender
    • Very cheap, priced at around $100
    • 21 frets
    • Low quality pickups and wood
    • Reasonable sound for the price
    • A good amp will compliment the sound.
    • Three single coil pickups
    • Suitable for blues, rock, bluegrass, indie playing
    • Numerous color choice for body
    • Either maple or rosewood fretboard

The Squier Bullet Strat is not a bad electric guitar if you are on a very tight budget and doesn’t sound too bad if you have a quality amplifier. You can pick one up for around just $100 or under $200 for a bundle starter pack including a small Squier amplifier. I started off with a Bullet Strat and I played it through a Marshall amplifier which sounded very good considering the quality of the guitar. The amp obviously had some effect on the overall sound. This is not a long lasting guitar due to its poor quality build. I recommend this beginner guitar only if you are on an extremely tight budget

Avoid unless you are on a tight budget

Fender Standard Stratocaster

  • Made in Mexico
    • This guitar is a medium to good quality product
    • Brand of Fender
    • USA parts assembled in Mexico
    • Priced at around $450
    • 21 frets
    • Medium quality pickups and wood
    • Good sound for the price
    • A good amp will compliment the sound.
    • Three single coil pickups
    • Suitable for blues, rock, bluesgrass, indie playing
    • Numerous color choice for body
    • Either maple or rosewood fretboard
    • Includes a gig bag

The Mexican guitars are a great product for people who want a quality guitar for the money that they pay for and therefore a fantastic recommendation for a best electric beginner guitar. The sound is comparable to the more genuine American Stratocasters. However, it’s just that the quality and finish isn’t as good on the Mexican stratocaster

Highly Recommended

Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS

This guitar has the same quality as the one before it however it has 2 single coil pickups and one humbucker pickup. The humbucker pickup gives a more meaty tone when played and suitable for heavier sounds like metal guitar playing. These cost around $500, a little more expensive compared to its sister version due to the remaining pickup.

The guitar is a much higher price than the other guitars on this article, However they are value for money due to its sound quality, parts and finish. So if you have the money then this guitar is the one to go for. Don’t get me wrong these are suitable and are used by amateurs guitarists. This guitar is an investment because it is a quality genuine product and will hold its value for a long future ahead and could eventually be sold as a vintage issue in time to come. This guitar ticks all the right boxes as is definitely a best beginner electric guitar.
