Schecter PT

"This guitar is very Spartan and only offers the one tone and volume pot but I actually like the simplicity. The neck feels great and isn't too thin; very playable."
-Matt in Overland, MO

"The Schecter PT is an OUTSTANDING instrument. With its dual, coil-splittable humbuckers, there is no sound you can't come up with!"
- Joe in Bel Air, MD

"If it's good enough for Pete Townshend then it's good enough for all."
- Rick in New York, NY

Jackson USA KV2 King V

"This guitar is a work of art; made by the same craftsmen and in the same shop as the Jackson custom guitars; the fit and finish are amazing. Everything is set up perfectly and it plays amazing right out of the box."
- James in Bakersfield, CA

"It is very lightweight and very small and has great balance. You don't have to have gorilla-sized hands to play fast. Easy to get all the way around the neck."
- Sanford in Princeton, TX

"The KV2 is downright sexy! from the time I opened the case, to the time I hung it on the wall and stared at it for hours. Can't wait to see what it looks like on stage."

$2,699.99 or 12 payments of $225 | Learn more »

Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH

"The most useful feature I found out of the many many features, was the coil-splitting roller knobs...because they actually do just what they claim, they are true BLEND knobs. This guitar has so many variations in tones, I can't begin to describe just how versatile it really is."
- Paul in Pearl River, LA

"The build quality is fantastic, finish is beautiful...couldn't ask for more, and the Olympic White...it's a piece of art!"
- David in Santa Rosa, CA

"Mostly it's the sheer genius of design that amazes me. It's hard to believe that most of the circuitry was designed in the 1960s. Putting pickups in that can blend between full humbucker to single coil is a real stroke of genius."

PRS Paul Reed Smith SE Standard 24

"Overall the guitar was close to perfect. One of the most comfortable guitars I have ever played. The setup was great too."
- Gary in Guntersville, AL

"Great guitar and I was totally blown away by the neck and playability."
- Zack in San Marcos, TX

"This PRS is amazing to look at. Just perfect and plays great."

$499.99 or 6 payments of $83.17 | Learn more »

Gibson Les Paul Custom

"Save your money until you can buy one and you will never regret owning the greatest electric guitar ever made."

"It's a Les Paul Custom! Does anything else need to be said? This guitar is the quintesential rock and roll machine. When it says 'CUSTOM' on the headstock...nothing else compares."

"I was blown away by the sound of this baby. Crisp and clear, no hums even with heavy distortion."

$4,799 or call for 12 payments | Learn more »

Fender Classic '50s Stratocaster

"This thing is sweet.. great tone, feel, neck is perfect, color is great and on the money."
- Cas in Midland, TX

"I'm very selective on my guitars, but this guitar definitely sounds incredible!! The pickups and the whole circuitry is awesome."
- Humberto in Pharr, TX

"This guitar sounds like a Strat is supposed to sound. Everything resonates well, the sounds are bright and crisp."

$799.99 or 8 payments of $100 | Learn more »

Epiphone Worn G-400

"I would like to tell anyone who cares that this Epiphone SG-400 is in no uncertain terms THE BOMB!!! I have never had such value for such a cost and this guitar is incredible."
- John in Scarborough, ME

"The neck access is awesome. I love the feel, tone and weight of this guitar."

"The two humbuckers pack the punch that we are all looking for in a guitar. There is nothing I would change about the guitar except for...well, nothing!"

$319 or 6 payments of $53.17 | Learn more »


"Great action, great and awesome body, great electronics and the unbeatable price, makes this a once in a lifetime purchase!"
- Jim in Wilcox, AZ

"It was great sustain, comfortable neck for small hands like mine and I feel the clean tones are really great. This can handle any music you throw at it and then some."
- Tim in Belen, NM

"Guitar is freaking sweet, sounds great, the reviews on site matched up, which were really high."
- Branden in Faribault, MN

$279 or 6 payments of $46.50 | Learn more »

Ibanez AG75 Artcore Hollowbody

"This guitar is amazing! Fit, finish, sound, and playability exceeded my expectations. The two-pickup configuration offers enough options to find enough grit and sustain for rock or blues."
- Michael in Syracuse, NY

"I am totally satisfied with this instrument. It is well balanced and has very smooth neck action. Anyone who would like to have a great sounding jazz guitar will love this Ibanez AG75."
- Reginald in Chester, PA

"This guitar has some of the nicest tone options I've seen. I was looking for an inexpensive guitar with good tone variety, and this is it."

$399.99 or 6 payments of $66.67 | Learn more »

Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX

"The sound is fantastic! The 2 EMG humbucker pickers give you a sound that kicks you straight in the jaw. Throw in the SpeedTaper D-profile neck and flying up and down the fretboard is a breeze compared to anything I have ever used."
- Kevin in Houston, TX

"The black hardware...the powerful EMG pickups...the super fast neck, sleek and shiny body with that true Les Paul weight and design. I love it, to say the least."
- Kenny in Atlanta, GA

"Very quick neck and practically plays itself. Great sustain and no buzzing. The EMGs were an awesome idea."
- Colt in Ford City, PA
