  • btd96:

    My first guitar was a hand-down from my grandpa, a Lyon by Washburn, and ive been playing it for about 5 years now, and i want to move onto a new one, and im 14 years old with no job, but getting plenty of money for Christmas and bday (they are next to each other) i get about an average of $300 so far on guitar center ive found a ESP LTD EC-10, and a Epiphone Les Paul Special II, for under 200, should purchase one of these, if any other choice please a guitar under $300

  • TheBlacksabbathfan9:

    I got a fender strat at guitar center for maybe $500 not to bad. Well I think it was on sale but, I love it it is a great guitar sounds nice I love it. This is not word for word bit Jimmy page pretty much said buy a good guitar and you’ll have a better experience. Not100% sure what he actually said but I was something like that

  • tutorialconr:

    I have been playing a 80$ Santana Steel string acoustic guitar for 3 years, and want to move on to electric. I am interested in the Pink Floyd sound, and I have seen their guitarist (David Gilmour) mainly plays the Fender Stratocaster. But thats too expensive for me, so what about the Squier strat ?

  • noventay4:

    Takamine is a better option

  • sUmtIngwOng93:

    Hi I’ve been learning guitar for nearly 2 years now and my guitar is the cheapest the store had to offer. I’m now looking for an electro acoustic as a permanent guitar, hopefully one that lasts a few years. I need help deciding between Ibanez Steve Vai EP5 or Ibanez Joe Satriani JSA5, any suggestions? Thank you

  • Steve Falter:

    As we discussed in the video, it’s best to play any guitar you are considering buying. Try a local music store. They may be able to help by showing you several guitars in your price range and most offer a money-back return policy. It will save you time, money and help you make a decision you’ll be happier with.

  • bobrusable:

    I was going to get the yamaha gigmaker deluxe acoustic guitar pack which is a hard top. Or should i get the FG700s. I just don’t know which one would sound better. I will buy the things that come in the pack separately if the fg700s is better. oh and I’m most likely buying this online? i’m a beginner

  • Tori Swindle:

    Im thinking of buying a good beginner guitar and i was looking at fender do you recommend the fender FA-100 or the fender DG-8s which one do you think is better cause they both look like a really good guitar

  • Ken Ross:

    I’m going to get a guitar anyone know a good brand?

  • JYabbz:

    Bluesman1218 what do you think about the new Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster? I heard nothing but great things about it. I already have a MIM Tele & Strat & EG340SC. Do you think it would be a good addition.

  • jordana rowlandson:

    but i’m buying it off amazon how will i get to feel and play it

  • jordana rowlandson:

    i’m thinking of buying a guitar is epiphone a good make

  • nyclear:

    Is one brand notorious for a gentler action? I am a chiropractor and would like something I can play now and again that won’t be as harsh on the fingers. I don’t like the sound of nylon though. Price is less of an issue.
