I’m a beginner but am taking guitar class in high school and I want to get a cheeper electric guitar. What companies/types do you think I should get? Should I go for a beginner kit or get a cheaper guitar and better amp so I can have the amp for longer and get a newer guitar in a year or so? IDK what to really do there is so many guitars out there.
It depends on what style your playing
for example if your the kind of guy who wants to play heavy metal or rock I would recommend Ibanez or Gibson……
now if your planning blues you need a Les Paul…..
actually the 2 things that matter is The brand and type
Humbucker Guitars give you a fatter sound and rough tone but good for HEAVY metal ,blues,ROCK
but single coils like a stratocaster or Telecaster gives you a clear tone and is great for Jazz Rock,Alternative punk……….
for the Amp i recommend the MARSHALL amps they give you a clear bassy tone…..
and for the strings i’d say the GHS Boomers are great (gives you more louder sound from my experience with GHS strings……
strings like Ernie ball slinky and dean markley are good to but i would say GHS Boomers are strong,Reliable and would last longer that other’s………..
for a beginner like you i’d say the FENDER TELECASTER or STRATOCASTER is better since it’s cheap, gives you a great sound and chicks love it……
