Looking for reference before you plan what best model for the first electric guitar to buy. This ‘my silly personal story‘ and my mistake may help you to make
Here I will share my story and my silly mistake along with my best advice for the first electric guitar model and spec you should consider before you decide to buy. So you don’t have to be sorry later.
By the way, if you looking for references from famous guitar players may be what you get likely advertising about their endorsed model guitar and expensive stuff.
So! the advice here is from the man who not famous or really great at play guitar. It just me sharing my personal story and personal experience as a
Okay! back in the day! I remember the first electric guitar that I bought from an online store was a custom V guitar. Very cheap local custom craftsman for an electric guitar. And that was also my first mistake.
My first mistake for buy electric guitar
Yeah, at that time I think ‘V’ guitar is cool. Ya! it looks cool but it’s hard to use for room practice time (Sit down practice).
You know, that you can’t play it like when you play guitar with general body shape. The only you find it comfortable to play is when you put the ‘V’ shape on top of your leg. Duh!
I always love to see guitar players playing V shape guitar. But to play it myself? Nah, it is a
So never buy a guitar because you think it looks cool. It’s better to pick one that you feel comfortable to play. What makes guitar player looks cool is how they play not what kind of guitar model that they play.
My first ‘V’ model guitar end up with I sold it a few month later after I buy my second electric guitar.
My second mistake

My second mistake. Yep! I am making a
It’s an old Ibanez GIO with 22 frets and I buy it from second hand. The playability is very good actually.

So, make sure you already know what kind of neck guitar type that makes your finger comfortable to play on it. Before
Finally, I found what model that works best for me!
So in other years later, I buy again my third electric guitar. This time I only buy the neck and build the body by my self plus shop all the spare parts and put it all together to become my first custom build guitar.
This time I found it perfect for me to play on it. Have 24 frets with The Ibanez model and the nut width is 4,3 mm.
Another guitar that I just buy lately is Cort M200 model, the design is almost similar to PRS. This one is my favorite now. Below is the video of me testing the guitar to record my demo songs on Youtube.
I found this guitar with a thin neck and wider nut works best for me. For me, body shape and guitar brand is about a matter of price that’s me, and you can afford to buy :p
So that’s my story guys. I hope it can help you make the right decision before you buy ‘your first‘ guitar that you can afford to buy.
The brand, model, and price. It doesn’t matter, as long you feel comfortable to play or shred on it. That’s my opinion. And that’s because I only can afford to buy a low priced electric guitar.
