With holiday season right around the corner, now might be a good time to consider that new electric guitar you’ve been waiting to get as the perfect gift, even if it is to yourself. 

Of course there are a number of things to consider when you are purchasing a new guitar, you want something solid that will sound good with your setup, something that is going to last you for a long time.

The Fender American Special Stratocaster is the Best Electric Guitar of 2016 and anyone would be lucky to have one of these.

When it comes to shopping for a new guitar you want to make sure that it is a high quality guitar overall. Stratocasters have been some of the top guitars over the years and they continue to earn their place. Your new Fender will be right at home if you have taken the time to set up your at-home studio. It has excellent pick ups making it a really versatile and smooth playing guitar, great for keeping up a fast rhythm. These days you can get just about any specific sound style for electric guitars using different pedals, that’s why it is important for the electronics and hardware to be top notch as well as all of the materials.

This Special Stratocaster has a nine and a half inch fretboard radius with 22 Jumbo frets. The satin-finished neck allows the strings to bend easily while maintaining the modern feeling. You will also be able to hit all of the deep notes thanks to Fender’s Greasebucket tone circuit which essentially rolls off high frequencies without adding bass giving you a clear sound. It even includes a gig bag and a limited lifetime warranty for a great package deal.

  1. Play a lot of guitars, play EVERYTHING. I have played $5,000 guitars that were junk and out-performed by $200 guitars. Pick what feels right and sounds right to you.

  2. The price of a guitar does not necessarily match its true value. It will always pay to try it. Though a good brand is always a basic guarantee, the same materials and hands will not make an identical instrument, and this is particularly true about acoustic/classical ones.
