Guitar gear rewiews

This site will help you find what you're looking for...

"I'm sure everyone knows it's best to compare before you buy. In fact, the best thing you can do for yourself, when buying a new guitar or gear, is to read reviews and compare brands and models that you're interested in. Then you can make an educated decision as to what will fit your budget and musical taste.

I personally prefer the American-made guitars and gear. There are some factory authorized foreign made guitars that are hard to tell the difference from the American-made except for the price. However, it has been my experience that the electronic parts of the electric guitars and gear are not as good in quality as the American-made but they are less expensive to purchase. Compare reviews and specifications. Then check prices and store return policies before you buy."

The Fender® American Deluxe Stratocaster® is one of the most popular electric guitars in history.

"Some guitars sold as 'new' in stores have actually been played many times by inexperienced players. Before you buy, be sure to look the guitar over carefully for scratches and check all electronics for functional use."
