A Guide to Guitar Equipment for a Guitarist

This is a review of some of the various equipment that you will need to play guitar. There is an overview of some good brands and places to get good prices.

There are different schools of thought on if you should learn to play before buying a guitar, or get a guitar first. I think you really need to actually have the instrument to be good at it. It helps if you know someone who already plays though. They can show you how to hold it and maybe a couple chords to see if you like the guitars that you are checking out. It is especially good if you have that person available to go with you when you pick one out. To keep things pretty basic you need a guitar, an amplifier, cables to connect the guitar to the amp ( at least six feet long), picks ( I advise starting with very light picks to develop a smooth stroke), extra strings ( I use 10 gauge), a guitar strap, and I advise getting an electric tuner that you plug into the guitar. If you do not get an amp that has a good distortion mode you will also need a distortion/ overdrive unit.

Now you know what you need here are some places to get what you need. There are music stores of course. You will often find people here who know how to play guitar and give you recommendations. They also will typically have a pretty good selection. A couple problems you could encounter are that you may not find much used stock (more on this in a minute). Often times the salesman are paid by commission and may not be giving the best advice. For example all the stuff they have in your price range might be junk, but they want you to spend money rather than telling you to wait for good used gear to come in. You should always check some of the online guitar shops so you know what you should pay. Most good music stores will match online prices of competitors. They do not price their wares that way. You will have to ask. You also can check on craigslist.org or your local paper. Also do not forget about pawn shops. This is pretty good as you often can find gear used that is at a better price. You can get more guitar or amp for your money. You also typically will be buying from someone who plays, so you may even get them to show you're a chord or two when you pick it up. I highly advise buying used if at all possible. For one thing, if you decide that playing is not for you then you have not blown that much money. Also a lot of the gear no longer made is actually pretty good compared to some of the junk in stores. I do need to say opinions of manufacturers are only my opinion. If you buy online I advise you to have access to an experienced guitarist that will be able to check the stuff over for you and make sure you can return it without penalty.

Everyone's budget will be different. It is pretty rare to find anything respectable for under $100. You can find some pretty good guitars in the $200 range, and if you get up to three you can get a lot of guitar for your money. Do not forget to check out return stock, b-stock and slight blemishes. I recommend trying to stay away from guitars made of basswood it is pretty cheap. It also was used by Native American tribes to make rope. This makes me question its quality, but there are very nice guitars made from it. I like alder, there are other good woods, but most won't be in a novice price range. Some good newer guitars for beginners include the Epiphone Les Paul Special II (basswood though), there are also a couple kinds of new Kramer guitars that are under $200. Ibanez has a couple models. The one I was best impressed with is the RG120. I am not big on Squier (made by fender but in India). They do make lots of models under $200 though. You can find a Peavey Predator, which includes a locking tremolo for $219 or a Kramer striker with locking tremolo for $249. You can also find a couple LTD (by ESP) models with locking tremolo by under $300. Most are basswood though. Every one of these guitars mentioned are made overseas in china, India, or Indonesia. A new American made guitar will cost you a minimum of about $800.

Once you are checking out the used gear here are some of my favorites. Any older Ibanez made in Japan or Korea will typically get you a pretty good guitar and you can find some under $200. Peavey also has older models and newer models that can be found used for very good deals. I particularly like the Peavey Tracer (I still own one), Nitro, V-Type, G-90, Predator, and Detonator. Older Charvels will also usually give you a lot of guitar for you money. Vester is a no name brand from the 1990's, but was sued out of business by Fender. Some of them can be found under $200 and are as good of quality as Charvel and better quality as newer guitars in the $500 range. Squier was made in Japan at one point and those are very good quality.

Moving onto amplifiers. Now most amplifiers these days are made in china (especially the lower priced amps. I do find these to be of better quality than the guitars. The wattage of an amp described how much power it uses and how loud it is. A ten watt amp is not as loud as a 40 watt amp. Typically when you are starting you only need a 10-15 watt. If you buy used you may get a 50-100 watt for a really good price, but don't need that much power. There are tube amps and solid state amps. Basically the difference is that you need to replace tubes in a tube amp. Many guitarists also like the sound better. There are also solid-state amps that work off transistors. A stack (you should not get one of these) will have a head that controls the amp and a cabinet which is where your sound comes from. A combo amp is a once piece unit that combines a speaker cabinet with a head. As far as new amps go Randall usually makes a pretty good amplifier, as does Peavey and line-6. Fenders are not bad either. Marshalls are not bad, but I think their lower level models are way too pricey for the quality. You can get a Fender frontman for $60, a Randall Rx 15 watt for $90. a line-6 spider III 15watt or Peavey Vypyr 15 watt for $99. The spider and Vypyr are both what are know as modeling amps. Basically they mimic the sounds of various other amps. Some of the amps they mimic are very expensive. They also include various effects like chorus, delay, flanging, and reverb. Reverb comes on most amps, but not the other effects. Effects are beyond the scope of this guide, but these were used heavily in hair metal. If you decide to go used, amps from the 1980's and 1990's that were always pretty good included made in America Peavey, Crate, and Marshall and Randall amps.

As far as distortion units (if you need once if not included with the amplifier) Boss always makes good distortion units as does Behringer, and DOD. These are very good and you really should not pay lots of money and just buy used. Behringer is pretty affordable even new.

The only thing left is learning to play. If you can afford to take private lessons with a teacher that is always good, but a half hour is about $25 most of the time. There are countless video courses out there. Initially I learned from Doug Marks Metal method lessons and highly recommend them. I did like the 1990's version, but he does go into much more detail in the new version. There are six stages taking you from beginner to advanced. After you finish you should know enough to be in a band. He does not teach any songs during the course though. The six lessons are broken into four mini lessons each expected to take you a week to learn. That is basically six months of lessons. The whole course is on ebay for under $60. If you do take private lessons starting out with these would be a good way to learn some basics without spending lots of money. There are also various videos and booklets out there to teach you how to play your favorite songs. The songs you should be learning will depend of your still level. You should not be trying an advanced solo piece by George Lynch when you are first starting. Something from a band like Poison, Motley Crue, or Kiss is being much more to your skill level. You should practice at least an hour a day. If you don't have the time to practice now matter how much gear you have will help.

One thing to remember about your gear is that the main thing is function. It is great to use the kind of guitar and amps that your hero uses, but unless the company is paying you then you have no benefit. I am a huge George Lynch fan, but I would not pay $3000 for one of his signature guitars. As a matter of fact signature series guitars will cost almost three times the price they should for the quality of the instrument. That is one reason Vester is so cheap. They did not really have many endorses. The country music group Alabama used them, but I am not aware of any hair bands that did. The quality is as good as Ibanez and Jackson from the same period. Vester was either made in Japan or Korea.

I hope this review is helpful. In final tips I want to make you aware there are lots of free things you can find on the internet. The website Ultimate-guitar.com has free tablature and lessons that you can use once you know some basics.

Here are just some preferences of mine of equipment not taking major price issues of a beginner into fact. I think Carvin amps are some of the best around and they are still made in America. Randall are mostly made in china, but they are probably one of the better amps out there. American made Peavey and Crate amps are great, the only new Peavey I really like is the Vypyr since I can get the Mesa-Boogie sound without spending $1,000. As far as guitars go I am very partial to the older Peavey Tracer, Nitro, and Vandenberg models. I would match them against most guitars out there today. ESP are great to, but highly overpriced. Their Korean version of their LTD (not the Chinese ones) are good, but you could buy two tracers for the price. As far as effects though Boss is probably the best and Digitech is really good. I use a multi-effect called the RP-150. It models various amplifiers and has some effects with it. My favorite effects are some distortion with chorus, and reverb and using a noise gate setting. Strings vary from person to person. I personally use DR 10 gauge. I also have liked Ernie Ball and GHS.
