3 Budget Amazon Guitars That Might Shock You
Whether you're a beginner looking for your first guitar or a seasoned pro on the hunt for a great deal, stick around because today I am going to be looking at 3 affordable Amazon finds that honestly shocked me, some for the right reasons and some for the wrong.
First up, we have a bold and stylish choice that's sure to turn heads on stage.
This Glarry brand guitar is a semi-hollow model made of basswood, with a 3-ply aged white pearl pickguard. The maple bolt-on neck is the classic "C" shape with a 25.5" scale length. The fretboard is also made of maple and has a radius of 12".
In total, it has 22 frets and an ABS nut with a width of 1.656". The body is equipped with a closed single-coil lipstick pickup at the neck position as well as an open single-coil pickup at the bridge, all of which can be controlled with 1 volume and 1 tone knob, and this is a string through body as well. The pickup switching is the standard 3-way design and the bridge is a 3-saddle vintage-style bridge with slotted steel saddles. Likewise it has closed tuners and all of the hardware has a chrome finish.
As of now you can pick this model up for $99 using my link in the description but I will also link to similar models by the same company that are only $79!

Next, we have a classy and timeless option that's perfect for anyone looking to pay homage to the days of drive in theaters and poodle skirts.
This beautiful guitar by Latitude is classified as butter colored, and with a string through body made from swamp ash as well as a gorgeous satin finished neck crafted from roasted maple, it plays like butter too.
The fretboard is made of rosewood overlaid on a standard C shape neck with a comfortable 42mm nut width and modern 9.5” Fretboard Radius. The 2.9mm jumbo frets also allow your fingers to move and smoothly over the 25.5 scale length fretboard. The pickup switching is the standard 3-way design and the bridge is a 3-saddle vintage-style bridge with slotted steel saddles much like the first guitar we looked at. Likewise, this brand is fitted with 2 similar single coil pickups in the neck and bridge positions, controlled with a single volume and tone knob each. The tuners on this guitar differ as well, as this beauty is fitted with 15:1 ratio vintage style closed tuners.
You can pick this model up for $349 and as of now there is a $35 off coupon available for using my code.

And finally, we have a classic and sophisticated pick for players who appreciate timeless style and woody tones.
This classy guitar by Eart features a gorgeous sunburst finish with a subtle matte sheen and an open pore design, which allows the natural wood texture to be admired while playing or displaying. This solid through body neck is made of roasted mahogany coupled with a mahogany body, giving it a warm and rich sound.
Surprisingly, the whole guitar itself is really light, making it great for longer sessions. The nut on this model is made of bone with a width of 41.7mm, increasing its sustain and upping the value. It has 22 medium jumbo stainless steel frets resting on a C+U shape neck profile, that span across its 24.75 inch scale length. The Indian rosewood fingerboard has a compound radius to match, with a 14" radius on the lower frets and a 9.5" radius on the higher frets, making it comfortable for both open chord rhythm and faster lead lines.
The pickups are covered alnico5 pickups, and there are controls for neck volume and tone, bridge volume and tone, and a 3 way toggle switch for great tonal options. The bridge is a tune-o-matic style bridge with a stop bar tailpiece. The tuners are covered die-cast with a ratio of 18:1.
You can pick this beauty up for $399 today, which doesn't seem much like a budget guitar but considering an ES-335 is nearly twice the price... its a no brainer with the specs and build quality on this one.
