How do I start selling electric guitars

Buying a guitar: what do you need as a guitar beginner?

The market for guitars is huge, and if you're looking to buy a guitar for the first time, you may be overwhelmed at first. But don't worry: if you keep a few things in mind, not much can go wrong and you will buy the right one.

Buying a guitar is fun!

Buying guitars and the right accessories is fun! Even as a beginner, because the guitar is a very rewarding instrument:

  • The guitar sounds good very quickly (... e.g. compared to the violin ...)
  • You don't have to invest a lot of money to put together a good entry-level package.
  • Here you can find out what you need to get started on the guitar. So you are sure to get the right guitar and accessories.

Does it make sense to buy ready-made guitar starter packages?

No, I advise against it.

What doesn't work at all are extremely cheap packages for € 89.95 for guitar + bag + textbook + amplifier ... and accessories. Here you can be absolutely sure to get instruments of really subterranean quality that you won't have fun with.

The guitar amp sounds like a can, the guitar doesn't tune properly, and the cheap, poorly padded bag that looked so good in the picture stinks like a beast of chemicals that are not really healthy. Have fun!

And what about guitar sets for € 500? It looks better here in terms of quality. But you're still giving away a really great opportunity. Namely, the opportunity to tailor the guitar and the accessories to you (or the recipient) so that it is much more fun to practice and play.

That starts with Shape and color of the guitar on, the style of the guitar amp and goes up to Equipment. That delivers a lot Room for individual picks, guitar straps and bags offers.

It's much funnier to give your girlfriend a pink belt if that's her favorite color. A skull belt for the budding hard rocker and a cool leather belt with fringes for the country fan. You don't get all of this in packages.

The additional financial outlay is relatively low. The more fun compared to the guitar sets, in which everything can only be found in the cheap standard black, is enormous.

And, very important: Thanks to online ordering, Amazon & Co, the additional time required to put together such a guitar set is really low. Which guitars, amplifiers and accessories are recommended here - this is next:

Which guitars and which accessories are recommended for beginners?

In this compilation I limit myself to equipment for beginners. The guitars and amplifiers are of high quality enough to be sufficient for the advanced guitarist. But if you already know what you want, you should also take a look at the other pages of, where I present the individual guitar brands and amplifiers.

I differentiate between buying a concert guitar, a western guitar and an electric guitar with accessories. Different accessories make sense depending on the type of instrument. Here you have the overview. The accessories are sorted according to their importance - and you can virtually choose a suitable item from every category and place it in the shopping basket. Then at the end you have a great, individual complete package that leaves nothing to be desired. Have fun choosing.
