Finding great starter electric guitar packages for your beginning guitarist does not have to be a big chore. There are many of them available for you to choose from in a dizzying array of options, colors, and sizes. To a parent who is looking for that perfect one to get their child started in learning a great musical instrument, this can be slightly overwhelming. You also are concerned about buying a guitar that is of good quality that your child will like and be able to use for years to come.
First, you need to know what to look for in a good guitar. Finding a good instrument for a decent price is not that hard if you know what to look for. The first thing you need to look at in any guitar that you buy is if it is made of solid wood. You will find many guitars out there that are made of nothing more than pressed wood covered with a laminate surface. These tend to have major problems with the hardware screws coming out of them. The other thing that you need to look at is the hardware and make sure it is made of solid metal. I once had a guitar that had hardware made out of plastic and painted silver to look like metal. It soon broke to pieces, so just be aware that it is out there.
You will also come out ahead by knowing what an electric guitar package needs to contain in order for your new player to have everything that they need to get started. In addition to the guitar, they will need to have an amplifier, a cable that hooks the guitar to the amplifier, a sturdy strap, guitar picks, and an extra set of strings. Useful bonuses that will really help out are a tuner, guitar polish, a string winder, a case for the instrument and the best bonus, an instructional dvd. Having these items included will have your child playing it right out of the box.
