How To Buy A Beginner Guitar

Hey! I’ve written an article for Anderton’s offering some tips on what to look for in a beginner guitar. There are so many options out there these days compared to when I started on my Status Strat copy and Marathon MX3 amp (with no distortion! Can you believe it?). I’ve tried to provide a nice overview for those who aren’t sure what to look for. You can read it here.

If you’re an experienced player, what was your first guitar? Do you still have it?

Peter Hodgson Hi! I'm Peter Hodgson. I write for Gibson.com, Australian Guitar, Australian Musician, Mixdown Magazine (including my instructional column, 'Unleash Your Inner Rock God,' which has been running since 2007), BluntBeat (including their weekly hard rock/metal column Crunch) and The Brag. And I'm Assistant Social Coordinator with Seymour Duncan. I've been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, and I've been writing for magazines since I was 18. I've also worked as a guitar teacher (up to 50 students a week), a setup tech, a newspaper editor, and I've also dabbled in radio a little bit. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and my hobbies include drinking way too much coffee, and eating way too much Mexican food. You can check out my guitar playing at Bandcamp or on YouTube, and feel free to email me at iheartguitarblog@gmail.com If you'd like to support the site, feel free to kick in a couple o'bucks using this donation button.
