What to Avoid When Buying an Electric Guitar
音量
Hi! I’m Rick Tedesco for About.com and today we’re going to talk about what to avoid when buying an electric guitar. We’re here at Guitar Hangar in Brookfield, Connecticut.
Research Where the Electric Guitar is Made

Picking out the right guitar for you is a personal thing, you have to feel a connection to the instrument. You should do research about reputable music stores in your area. Just because a guitar may look great doesn’t mean it is. Buying by name doesn’t mean you are getting the best guitar for you. For example, some major brands have American-made, Mexican-made and Japanese-made electric guitars with the first being the most expensive. The cheapest, may not have the same quality as the American-made, but it’s a good knock-around guitar that may suit your needs. Know where the guitar is made.
Buy the Electric Guitar Your Comfortable With

There are a number of things to look for when buying an electric guitar.If you know people who already play, they can be a great resource in helping you find a store or salesman that will work with you. Large, discount stores will have more electric guitars, but you might not get the hands on help you need to find the right guitar and their stock might be of much lesser quality. You should never feel pressure to buy right at the moment. If you do, leave and continue your search elsewhere.
Check if the Electric Guitar is in Good Condition

What I look for when buying a guitar is the sound, the playability and the overall condition of the guitar. Things to look for when buying a used guitar are one, the frets, if you pull the strings aside to the bit and notice deep grooves that guitar can need a fret job or a least a grind and polish which can be expensive. Give the guitar a good look over, make sure there’s no big cracks, dings, dents that you can’t live with. Check the neck pocket to make sure that there’s no cracks around there, that could show signs that the neck is loose. One concern for a lot of guitarists is the weight of the guitar. A guitar that’s very heavy, sitting on your shoulder all night it can become tiresome. So, make sure that you like the weight of the guitar. Once you’ve purchased your new guitar, you should do nothing but enjoy the experience.

If you follow these tips, you will be able to buy the right electric guitar and avoid some common mistakes. To learn more about this and other music topics, please visit About.com. Thanks for watching.
