Beginner's Gear Guides: Electric Guitar

Ready to start playing electric guitar? Build your first rig with these guitars, amplifiers and extras.

Round out your first guitar setup with these useful accessories. After the guitar and amp, the last component you'll need is a guitar cable. One cable is fine to start, but it never hurts to have a spare or two. Tuners, straps, picks and more will also help on your journey to electric guitar wizardry.
