Reviews of the best beginner electric guitars
Some guitar makers never seem to get the credit they deserve. Carvin Guitars might be one of them.
They make some of the finest custom solid-body and semi-hollow guitars on the market today.
This includes the Carvin DC200, a solid-body electric that has become one of my go-to guitars these past few years.
I received my Gibson ES 175 as a gift three years ago. I had owned and played many guitars – dozens – up to that time, but I don’t think I ever fell in love so quickly with an instrument.
To my eyes, it recalls generations of the finest jazz musicians to hold a guitar. In my hands, it feels solid, stalwart. Like it has something to say. And to my ears, it produces some of the most remarkably beautiful sounds I have ever heard.
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.
