Paul Reed Smith CE 24
The Paul Reed Smith CE 24 features a bolt-on neck and a double cutaway mahogany body with a maple top. It’s also equipped with PRS’s signature 85/15 pickups, which deliver impeccable tone and long-range performance. Between the signature bolt-on neck and pickups, the CE 24 delivers a clear, crisp rock and roll sound that’s entirely unique to PRS guitars. It’s a really good looking guitar that sounds even better.
Fender American Ultra Telecaster
The American Ultra series of guitars are for players who seek the ultimate in performance and tone. They feature a unique “Modern D” neck profile with smooth edges and easy access to the top of the fretboard. Its Ultra Noiseless Vintage Tele pickups deliver the warmth, vibrancy, and fullness you expect from a Fender with no feedback or humming. Everything on this beautiful guitar is sculpted to allow fast playing and soloing.
Gibson Les Paul Custom “Norlin Era” Electric Guitar
If you’re looking for special, the Gibson Les Paul Custom “Norlin Era” is it. Although most attention is paid to 60s era Gibsons, guitarists are now discovering the impeccable construction, design, and sound of this overlooked model from the 1970s. Vintage guitar lovers appreciate its heavy weight, both for feel and for its ability to produce rich, full-bodied tones. Notes maintain the vintage warm quality that the era is known for and fantastic sustain.
Fender American Standard Stratocaster
The American standard for electric guitars has long been Fender, and the Fender American Standard Stratocaster is one of the big reasons why. This timeless guitar had a glorious run for decades up to the year 2000. The first generation of the American Standard Stratocasters was introduced in 1986. These instruments featured a thinner neck profile, a flatter radius, and a refined tremolo system, making them the first choice for players wanting a more contemporary tone. Not only do they stand the test of time with regards to build and sound, they hold their value as well.
ESP LTD EC-1000
The EC-1000 is one of the most iconic guitars in the world. It’s noted for its high build quality to endure the life in the hands of professional musicians. It’s a serious value. This guitar features a beautiful vintage-style body and neck with a set-thru Mah neck. It also has a dual humbucker configuration. All of it adds up to produce a full-bodied, balanced tone. A range of finishes are available to get the look that fits your style best, including either rosewood or ebony fretboards.
Gibson Les Paul Standard ’60s
Guitarists love Gibson guitars from its vintage eta, with very good reason. The Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s is a modern day release of Gibson’s most iconic guitar model built in the 1960s. This new Les Paul Standard features a solid mahogany body with a satin finish, and a slim taper neck with a rosewood fingerboard. It pays homage to the era that made Gibson the iconic guitar builder it is today and is built to last. This guitar is a dream to play and will stay in your guitar collection forever.
Paul Reed Smith SE Custom
The Paul Reed Smith SE Custom 24 is part of the PRS’ SE Series, which offers musicians fantastic value while still being able to play with the same high-quality components. This guitar features a mahogany body and a maple neck with a 25” scale length rosewood fretboard. The SE Customs feature all the same design elements as the higher-end PRS guitars, and play with the same butter-like smoothness. They also deliver the same type of warm, balanced, butter-like sound that can only come from a Paul Reed Smith guitar.
Paul Reed Smith Silver Sky John Mayer Signature
This wonderful, vintage-style guitar was born from the collaborative design effort of Paul Reed Smith and John Mayer. In a nutshell, it’s a modern-day version of a 1960s vintage single-coil guitar. Some of the design elements that were specifically taken from that guitar era are the shape of the neck, the fretboard, and the tuners. The pick-up system may have been inspired by the guitar sounds of the 60s, but the 635JM single-coil pickups are louder, fuller, and deliver pleasantly bright high notes. It’s clear that every detail of this guitar was thoughtfully implemented.
Fender American Professional II Stratocaster
Professional may be an understatement for this Fender. This souped-up Strat plays with a big, warm sound that is instantly familiar as classic Fender Strat sound, yet with an edge that bites. That’s in part thanks to the inclusion of three upgraded V-Mod II single-coil pickups. Its maple fretboard is so smooth and fast to play on due to its deep “C”-neck design and smooth-rolled fingerboard edges. The narrow-tall fret design lends itself to easy bends and the neck heel design provides easy access to the top of the fretboard. You won’t be able to put this guitar down.
Fender Player Telecaster
The Fender Telecaster is one of the most iconic guitars of all time, so it’s no surprise that it’s also one of the top guitars you can buy on Reverb. The Player Series is an upgraded line of Fender guitars that replace the longtime beloved Made-In-Mexico line of guitars. The design and build-quality are impeccable, delivering punchy sounds that only Fender guitars can produce. This is a guitar that will last for a long long time, and plays well above its price range. Pretty much the only choice for those looking to break into pro-level Fender guitars without breaking the bank. There’s no way you can go wrong with a Fender Telecaster.
