Answers to the top questions asked by beginner guitarists.
In continuing this series on Frequently Asked Questions for beginner guitarists, today we’re going to discuss a great question that I’ve heard from quite a few people who have been in the market for a new beginner electric guitar – either for themselves or for their friend/child/etc.
Question: What should I look for when buying a beginner electric guitar?
One of the most often-asked questions I hear from people looking to buy their first guitar is the confusion around solid-top guitars and laminate guitars. These questions include:
I’ve traveled with my guitar all over the world. It has been in a hard guitar case thousands of miles on countless airplanes, trains, buses and taxis.
It has also traveled in a padded case just down the street to a gig or the local guitar store.
In both cases (ha! unintentional pun) my guitar made it safely to my destination.
