Recommended Brands + Models
Yamaha, Crafter, Fender, Cort + Luna. From all the beginners guitars I’ve played the Yamaha F310 represents the best playablity and value for money.
Fender, Gibson, Yamaha, Ibanez and PRS. For beginners on a budget there’s two models that I recommend. They are the Fender Squier and the Yamaha Pacifica. A practice amp and a guitar lead are pretty essential if you want to play your electric guitar louder.
Remember, if you’re buying from a guitar shop you can often get a good deal on buying all three bundled together.
Yamaha (Once again, I’m not endorsed by them or anything, they just make great guitars that are affordable and easy to play), Ibanez, Hose Ramirez. The Yamaha C40 represents excellent value for money.
