Electric Guitars are the most iconic instruments of our time, and if you're looking for a new one, you've come to the right place!
At the PMT Online Guitar Shop you'll find hundreds of different models for sale, from all the biggest brands. We are proud to be amongst the UK's largest stockists of Fender, Gibson, Yamaha, PRS, Schecter, Gretsch , G&L Guitars and Ibanez, plus many more.
Which kind of player are you? One of the reasons the electric guitar became the most iconic and significant musical instrument of the last six decades is its versatility: its sound has graced modern music of all styles from Jazz to heavy metal! Semi-Acoustics like the Gibson and Epiphone ES models are usually popular amongst jazz & blues players, whilst a solid body guitar is more common with rock'n'roll bands... but as Bob Dylan once said, "there are no rules", and pretty much any electric guitar can be used for any style.
Your guitar idols may also inspire you to choose a particular type of electric guitar: Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton are associated with the sounds of a Fender Stratocaster, whereas Jimmy Page and Slash will forever be remembered as Gibson Les Paul players. Fans of indie and alternative rock, on the other hand, usually love the tones of a Telecaster, Jaguar or Jazzmaster guitar. But you should choose the electric guitar that really stands out to you!
There are a range of factors to consider when buying an electric guitar: do you like bright & clean sounds, or fat and heavy? If it's the first case, go for an electric guitar equipped with single coil pickups, like players such as Clapton, Gilmour, Mark Knopfler or Jeff Beck did. Or, if you prefer a powerful sound with lots of sustain, ideal for heavy rock, go for electric guitars equipped with humbuckers, like a Gibson SG!
Buying the Left Handed Electric Guitar of your dreams need not be a headache. Fans of Jimi Hendrix will know about his re-stringing struggle and workaround solution to get his legendary Strat in a left handed version!
We are also one of the largest UK dealers of left hand Guitars. Many Left Handed guitars from Gibson, Fender, Ibanez, Squier and Epiphone and other key brands we stock are usually identically priced to the Right-handed versions, or available to special order.
So if you wish to produce the legendary sounds of Jimi Hendrix's strat the power of Pete Townsend's cranked Gibson SG or the modern experimental tones of Muse's Matt Bellamy, step inside a PMT guitar shop to discover your idea of heaven, or discover one of the largest selections of electric guitars online, here!
