Do you remember your first guitar? Of course, you do, every guitarist remembers their first guitar. It seemed like the best instrument in the world – its sound, its design, all of its characteristics seemed like perfect. But, all musicians grow and start to acknowledge the need in a better instrument. And this is the reason, you are reading this article. You will be given a few tips on choosing the guitar that would suit you best in every way.
At first, you must define the sum you would spend on your guitar. The reason is that there are thousands of instruments, whose prices range from around hundred to approximately million dollars. Of course the cheapest ones wouldn’t be the best decision to make, but it’s also ridiculous to spend hundreds of thousands dollars for an instrument, unless you are a collector or a rock superstar.
When you’re already in the store, you have to know, which brand you want, at least you should choose several – that means you’d have to do some research at home before you go to the store. Let’s pretend you’ve limited your choice to Gibson, Fender, and Ibanez. And you’ve already defined the amount of money you are about to spend. These two make your choice much easier. Try some of the models that fit into your price and make a choice, considering sound, design, guitar parts, like pins and pick-ups.
If you won’t consider any of these, there’s a chance you’ll spend the whole day, searching for the guitar that would suit you. So, if you want an instrument that would meet your requirements, start thinking of these things right away. You can also ask someone who knows about guitars much enough to give you a good advice.
