If you have been playing the guitar for very long you know that you are always in the market for a new one. Whether you have been playing for years or you are just starting out, if you are willing to spend a bit of money to buy a new electric guitar, then our list of the 5 best electric guitars under $1000 just might be just what you’ve been looking for.
My very first full-size guitar was an FG series acoustic guitar similar to the Yamaha FG700S, a guitar that my dad handed down to me. There wasn’t anything particularly special about the guitar and it certainly wasn’t an extremely expensive guitar aside from the sentimental value.
A close friend called me the other day asking about beginner guitars. Apparently his oldest son, now 12, had decided that he wanted a guitar for Christmas.
“I don’t want to spend too much money” he said. “I’m afraid this is just a fad and he’ll just end up giving up on the guitar like he did with the piano.“
So if you’ve been looking for some good budget electric guitar options you’ve probably run across the Yamaha Pacifica name a few times. It stands alongside the Fender Squier series of guitars as some of the most popular in the price range due to its high value and excellent playability.
