Cheap Prices on Electric Guitars

Despite what you may have heard, you DO NOT have to drop ridiculous amounts of money to pick up a great sounding guitar. There's plenty of websites and stores that offer cheap prices on electric guitars.

What to Look For When Searching for Cheap Prices on Electric Guitars:
  1. Pickups - These are important. Make sure that the pickups deliver clear, quality sound on all settings. You can pick up a good set of pickups for about $150-$200.
  2. Electronic Components - Make sure all of the wires are well soldered in place and that the sound doesn't "cut-out" at random.
That's it.  The shape, weight, and overall size of the guitar is all personal preference. A good set of strings shouldn't cost you more than $7.00.

So why are some guitars priced in the thousands? Because you are paying for the name and the quality of the wood/paint. When it comes to quality sound, neither of those things apply. You can buy an expensive guitar later on.
