Guitars & Basses for Beginners
1. Ibanez GSR200-SDL Electric Bass in Soda Blue – PMT Exclusive
When it comes to choosing a bass guitar for a complete beginner, the GIO series from Ibanez is a great place to start. With this GIO Series GSR200 bass you get a combination of excellent playability and no-nonsense tone, at a price that’s affordable for all.
One of the key reasons Ibanez are so popular with complete beginners is the neck shapes they choose to use. Unlike with some brands, the neck on even the most-affordable Ibanez is almost as comfortable and sleek as you’d get with a high-end professional model.
This GSR200-SDL also comes complete with a Split Coil and Single Coil pickup configuration, allowing you to dial in a variety of hard-rocking bass tones.
Despite its low price, this bass can easily take you from Complete Beginner status, through to gigging with your first band.
2. Ibanez miKro GRGM21M-WSB Electric Guitar in Walnut Sunburst – PMT Exclusive
Not only is this fantastic guitar from the super-affordable GIO series, it also has the pleasure of being an Ibanez miKro model: a lineup that’s been developed with younger/smaller players in mind. Don’t let its size and price fool you though: this is a small guitar, with a big sound.
Featuring a smaller double-cutaway body, fast-playing short-scale neck, and a set of Infinity R humbucker pickups, this is a beginner guitar that’s perfect for aspiring shred-heads.
