To manage your guitar budget without throwing money away, you can focus on getting a low-cost beginner electric guitar with good quality wood and construction technique.
One way guitar builders keep the cost down is through using less expensive hardware that is upgradable. The wood and the workmanship cannot be upgraded, but the hardware can.
As your budget increases over time, you can upgrade the parts you need as you need them.
Below are the list of five guitars that help you get started without breaking the bank. Just remember that unlike acoustic guitar, you do need an amplifier to go with your electric guitar. You need to budget for the amp as well.
- Squier Fat Stratocaster
- Epiphone G-310 SG
- Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe
- Squier Affinity Series Telecaster
- Epiphone Les Paul Special II
