Great Beginner Guitar

(4.0)

I have owned this guitar for about four to five years now and it still plays just as well as it did when I got it. For the price range, it is very durable, does not produce the best sound, but if you're just learning, it will do the job. I would recommend this for anyone looking to learn the electric guitar but the lack of a whammy bar, and the tone quality would not make this the ideal guitar for someone more professional.

This is the guitar I learned my way around. I own an older model of this guitar. Bought it a while back and haven't set it down since. More than anything, this guitar has a great range. From Blues to Punk, Reggae to Metal, or Bluegrass to Rap. It is solid, and tough. Has a decent tone. Great For a Beginner.

This is the first guitar I have ever owned. I've had it for a little over 7 years now(got it for X-mas when I was 9). It's not the best quality or prettiest quality guitar but it's very cheap and made in Indonesia. This guitar helped me learn how to play guitar and I would highly recommend getting this guitar for beginners. This guitar isn't so bad but sounds cheaper over the years.
