GuitarFella is here to help you with detailed information and reviews about everything you can think of related to guitars. From the acoustic guitar for beginners to the nylon strings to the distortion pedal.

What It Takes To Find the Best Guitar

Choosing the right git is not like going to the supermarket for a new pair of socks. You have to fall in love with it, you have to dream about it, you have to desire it. We are talking about passion here. Playing guitar is not a profession, it is not a hobby; it is a lifestyle. In our world, the word guitarist rhymes with demi-god. If this is how you feel right now, welcome home.

If You Are A Beginner And Want To Learn How To Play Guitar

Before we go into details, let me tell you something. If you want to learn quick, buy an instrument that you will love. Yes, there are things that are important for beginners, you need simplicity, you need a good proven model, you need comfort, but what you need the most is passion. What will light up the passion? A badass guitar that you can’t let go! This is how it is done. The End.

Some Useful Guitar Buying Tips

Before you begin this exciting process you have to set your budget. If this will not be your first guitar then you are familiar with all the basics. If you are a beginner, you have to decide if you want to start with an acoustic or an electric guitar. Also there is the group of parents who want to buy the best kids guitar there is. There are two important things to take into consideration, if you go for acoustic all you have to be worried about is its price.

Should you take the path of the electric instruments, keep in mind that you will need money for a guitar, good amp and cables. The price of the six string fiddle and the amp should be close to equal. Going with a $1000 state of the art Gibson masterpiece and some pathetic china imported $35 amplifier will force some of your friends to film you and upload you to YouTube, I guarantee.

The Professional Guitar Reviews

We will divide all the different models in a few categories so we can make it easy for you to navigate to the desired section. Recently we started a beginner guitar blog, so you might want to pay it a visit. Before we proceed, I want to make something clear: You will not read reviews about garbage guitars here. That is right, we do not plan to waste your time analyzing and reviewing low quality or underperforming models.

This does not mean that if you can’t find a specific model here it is not good, great, epic, legendary, etc. Reviewing a guitar takes time because we always make sure to use one for a while before we release a review. We also talk with other people who have an opinion based on experience with the specific model. Every model that is mentioned in this site will be worth every single dollar of its price. If you read a review and you like the guitar and the price, you can buy it with no regrets.

The Stuff! Time to Make Your Choice:

If you are looking for an acoustic guitar you can start with the best rated acoustic guitars. A buying guide will wait for you to read it (in the beginners section) and get familiar with things that you never thought of before. We will have the section split in a few subcategories. There will be section devoted to beginner guitars. After that you will have different price tags that you can choose from.

If you want to opt in for an electric axe check out the best electric guitar section. Here you will also find a beginner guitars list, different categories separated by price tags, and if you are facing some difficulties and can’t make a decision, you can refer to our electric guitars detailed buying guide. When you are done with your selection head over to the best guitar amps guide.

If you are already geared with a great guitar but want to add a different tone to it, click here and theck out our list with the best recommended guitar pedals.

After a lot of e-mails we thought it will be a good idea to devote a full section on the top rated guitar strings. You might be interested to check it out as there are a lot of good tips, reviews and recommendations there. Spend some time reading and start testing!

Inspiration Is Important

A little tip: when I am looking for a new addition to my collection I am always listening to AC/DC in the background. You can exchange them with whatever floats your boat, but some inspiration is always nice and the additional hype is awesome. Trust me on this one, the experience is talking here.
