While we can’t all invest thousands of dollars on our most beloved guitars, there’s still a great selection of budget electric guitars out there
Equipping yourself with the perfect electric guitar is as important as the knight equipping the perfect sword. While we can’t all invest thousands of dollars on our most beloved guitars, there’s still a great selection of budget Electric Guitars out there. The following is a list of six of the best value-for-money options.
Fender Stratocasters are one of the most popular electric guitars in the world today. This classic brown sunburst design, complete with a rosewood fretboard over a polished maple neck and chrome embellishments, is a sturdy piece of craftsmanship that produces a powerful ripping’ sound. For as little as 109 euros, this is incredible value for money.
This prestigious Harley Benton model looks, feels and sounds like a top-of-the-range electric guitar…because it basically is. Only the price is low. The high gloss deep black body presents an immaculate finish that just feels nice under the fingers, while the high pickups produce a hell of a scream in the amp.
This 22-fret electric guitar by Dean, crafted with Paulownia wood and complete with a really nice matte brown finish and black pickups, is just a joy to play. The low price belies the quality: the sound produced is unrivalled and the solid body feels good under the arm.
White pearl shark fin inlays along the fretboard and a quilted grey pattern set into the middle of the gloss black body, this “dinky” one is anything but. While a little bit pricier than the others listed here, it’s almost worth it just for the aesthetics. Also featuring a useful double lock tremolo and exceptional build, this slightly increased but completely affordable price is worth it for those looking for something just a little higher up the scale.
Perfect for a beginner, this affordable electric guitar in Fender’s Affinity series features an eye-catching sparkle pickup board and a 21-fret rosewood neck. Though slightly lighter than the popular Stratocaster series, the quality isn’t impeded in the slightest; this is a gorgeous-looking electric guitar that is wonderful to play.
Featuring an almost entirely all-black finish (apart from a bolt-on maple neck and the 24-fret rosewood fretboard), this Vendetta series Dean electric guitar produces an exceptional sound for a modest price.
