Highend Guitars

Welcome to Highend Guitars

My name is jc and I’ve been a guitar enthusiast most of my life. In fact, I still remember my very first guitar which was a Gibson Les Paul copy in the late 70s. From then on I collected and traded guitars. I collected everything from dreadnought acoustics to the glam rock Ibanez’s of the late 80’s through to Martins, Fenders and everything else. I even traveled to the tropics of South East Asia to hunt down the best acoustic guitars they had there. So, there you have the proof – I’ll be actually knowing a fair bit about what I’ll be talking about on this site or at least I can lead you in the right direction for any specific information.

Everything You Need Here

No matter if you’re looking to purchase your first ever highend guitar, ways to improve your existing collection, or upgrading from a brand new guitar, I’ve got everything you need to know, right here, on this site. The most vital thing about purchasing any good quality guitar or related equipment is being clear about your exact needs. There are special instruments for special purposes (like live playing, indoor concerts etc.) for a reason.  This is because it seems that no one has ever come up with a single ‘good at everything’ kind of guitar that’ll help you cruise through different kinds of playing needs without hassles.

Prioritizing What Highend Guitar You Want

So, ideally, you should prioritise according to your most frequent use case. If you’re like Joe Satriani, and need to play live or record a lot, then a collection of top notch guitars should be the first thing you get. If you spend most of your time in your day busking, a great sounding acoustic is what you need more than anything else. If you want to play with soul, a vintage makes more sense. If you’ve got a passion for metal, an Ibanez could suit you best. You get the idea…

Highend Guitars Buying Guides

Once you’ve finalised upon a particular type of guitar, you can consult our buying guides on various types of guitars that I’ve already linked to, above.  After you’ve decided on getting a specific model, you could head over to a local store to get it from there if the price sounds right. A better idea would be to avoid the hassles and get it online at a website like Amazon. If you decide to get it online, it’s recommended that you choose a reputable place. Don’t just go with random online sellers because stories of fake replicas of popular guitars being sold by strangers online on bidding-type sites like eBay aren’t uncommon.

That isn’t to say Ebay is not going to be any good. In fact some of the best or rarest guitars will be found on Ebay. What I mean is if you can buy the same thing at a local or well-known store then the latter is a safer bet in most cases.

Passion and Enthusiasm for Highend Guitars

Here on Highend Guitars, I have a passion for good guitars, music and all things related. I’ve spent a large proprotion of my life trying out and reading about guitars. I think that justifies why I’m always looking to review new guitars as soon as they hit the stores. I also publish how-to articles, detailed reviews and general buying guides here on the blog. I hope you’ll find this place helpful and I can help you make a better decision about purchasing a guitar or any other guitar-related equipment.
