Choosing The Right Shape - A guitar's body shape is more than just about looks: it can also have a significant impact on how comfortable it is to play, and even (to some extent) what musical styles you can play on it. For complete beginners and smaller players, we would recommend a guitar with a slimmer body, such as a Squier Stratocaster, Yamaha Pacifica, or Epiphone SG.

Sounding Like Your Favourite Guitar Player - A great place to start is to find out what kind of guitar your favorite player likes to perform with, and aim for something similar.

Settling On A Budget - Before deciding upon a guitar to help you on your path to musical greatness it is worth setting yourself a benchmark price. Whilst you can buy an electric guitar for less than £100, the sky is the limit in terms of cost when it comes to some models.

Don't Forget Your Accessories - when you have picked your ideal electric guitar, you will need to remember to save a portion of your budget for accessories that will help you along your way. Some of the most popular accessories can be found in the shape of spare strings, plectrums, a practice amp, a gig bag/carry bag, a tuner, cables, and more.
