As a guitar player, I’m kinda choosy when it comes to the guitars that I would be using when I perform, when I am recording or for my all – rounder. If I had all the money in the world, I would really have a good list of elite guitars lined up. Too bad, I’m just a regular guy with a regular salary. However, that doesn’t stop me from being choosy. I still have my own list of guitars. They are not the expensive ones that I would choose over anything else if I could afford it but these are the cheaper equivalents.
Favorite Guitars – Cheaper Equivalents
Here’s an example of those great guitars that are expensive and their cheap equivalents. 1. Fender Stratocaster and Squier Stratocaster – Fender and Squier are sister companies. The price of a fender strat and a Squier strat has a huge gap especially if you add the Squier starter kit to that fact. You get a decent sounding Squier strat, a mini Squier amp, a gig bag, a tuner, a cable and some rock and roll, Nuff said!
2. Gibson ES 335 and Heritage 535 – Heritage was created when Gibson left a City in the United States. So basically, they have good stuff. A heritage is not that cheap but it is comparably cheaper than a Gibson which causes around 2K plus dollars.
Favorite Guitars – Conclusion
See, you could get the same tonal quality with less the price. If not the same, well, something close to that. Besides, the skill of the guitar player also is a factor in the overall output of the guitar’s tone. So don’t worry if you are using a Squier Stratocaster or whatever cheaper equivalent you have there. You are excused as long as you have the talent and you have the skills. These are the alternatives for your favorite guitars.
