Jeff Fields: I started my first band with Paul when we were about 13. I switched between guitar and bass and he played guitar. Before that we had both played instruments in the school band. I played the sax at first then changed to bass later on in high school, and Paul always played drums in that context. Our band director knew I played bass in our rock band (Rated R), so he asked me to try it out. It worked.
I remember the small lamp my father gave me to play it through. It was a very tiny, maybe 5 W Randall And I recall there was either an adapter or battery-power that it would run on, it was safer to use the adapter because otherwise it would eat through batteries. I’m not sure whether it was eating through batteries because of the frequency I was playing it or because of the volume that I would always play it at, full.
The beauty of how to sell guitar online is that there are no geographic limitations. You can find customers anywhere in the world. The benefit also of selling online versus a consignment arrangement is that you get to keep most if not all of the money yourself. If you take your guitar to a music store or used instrument dealer, thirty or forty percent of the selling price will go to them.
Specify a realistic budget and keep to it. When it comes to buying guitars and indeed many other items you really only get what you pay for. The quality of an instrument is directly proportional to its price. However, you do not always need to consider buying a brand new guitar. A previously used guitar can be an ideal choice for the budget conscious. However, be aware that sell my guitar from brands such as Gibson and Fender can command extremely high prices.
6) You can hardly find guitars at a lower price than you will online. Again, the “unnecessity” of keeping huge inventories makes it easier for them to sell guitar online with very low margins. They don’t usually have a warehouse to pay for.
From my personal experience I would say that the Fender Squire Strat is the best beginner guitar and it is the most versatile guitar for most styles. I have played guitar for 9 years and I still have and play my Fender Squire.
Lastly, you can also talk the price down to an affordable level with your local music store. Maybe he is a friend, or a friend’s friend and that helps a lot. Just be persistent and let the seller know you will walk away from the store if your desired price is not possible. Most of the time, the seller will be willing to lower their price some more just to get a new customer.
