Buying a Guitar for Christmas for the Experienced Guitarist

Aug 17, 2007
Sure, getting a guitar pack for a beginner is certainly more than acceptable. The goal in the beginning is to just get started. But for experienced guitar players, purchasing a new guitar is a delicate process. They know what sound they like. They know how they like the strings and neck to feel. They will want a guitar that they feel bonded to.

So, what do you do if you want to purchase a guitar for Christmas for the experienced guitar player? It may seem like a daunting task, but if you keep in mind that there are certain brands and styles that experienced guitar players desire, this could make things a lot easier for you.

Here is some more information about purchasing a guitar as a Christmas gift for the experienced guitar player.

Custom Guitars

Several guitar companies offer custom guitars. In fact, a custom guitar is a great way to personalize the guitar. However, if you choose to go the custom guitar route, you may want to consult with the guitarist. With all the different types of woods and body styles out there, it will be almost impossible to guess which guitar will make them happy. Brands to check out for custom guitars include Fender and Parker.

Exclusive Brands

Certain brands, such as Fender, Gibson, and Parker have multiple styles that appeal to the experienced guitar player. So what does a guitar player with a lot of experience desire in a guitar? That completely depends on personal preferences, the style of music they play, etc. One that that remains consistent is that these players require an instrument that is well made and sounds good. These brands deliver.

How to Choose

The best way to choose the right guitar is to involve the guitar player as much as possible. If they favor Parker guitars and you get them a Gibson, then they would not be happy with the purchase no matter how good the Gibson is supposed to be. You will also do your own research. Read product reviews, talk to other guitar players, and test some of the guitars. Or if you do not play, go with the guitar player you are buying the gift for and watch them test the guitars out. The only way to really tell if a guitar will work is by testing it. Every guitar made play differently even when they are the exact same model and brand. To know which guitar is exceptional requires a experienced touch.
