They’re the essentials every guitar player needs in an acoustic guitar. They’re made with comfort and maximum playability in mind. 

 

Klos Guitars 

These are pretty interesting because Klos Guitars is a small company making a full sized travel guitar. First of all, Klos Guitars are made with carbon fiber and the neck is detachable! This provides an interesting combination of tone and portability. 

 

DIY Guitar Kits at StewMac

You might have heard of these but if you haven’t do-it-yourself guitar kits are fairly inexpensive kits that allows you to build your very own instrument. Some of the best guitar kits can be found on eBay or Amazon for less than $200. They come in all sorts of different shapes like classic Les Paul or Flying V styles. Don’t expect these guitars to sound like $2,000 instruments, but the real fun is in the building process. 

 

Pedaltrain

One of many pedalboard essentials, the Pedaltrain is another great gift for guitar players because it’s an easy way to put all of your pedals in one easy spot. It even comes with a carrying case and additional accessories like velcro strips and cable ties to secure your stomp boxes. 

 

Music Nomad Fretboard Cleaner

It’s really important to know how to clean guitars, especially if you have an older instrument. Often times, guitar learners tend to neglect guitar maintenance but making sure your strings are clean and your frets are polished could make all the difference. This fret cleaning kit comes a solution to clean the frets, and the grips make it easy to clean the frets without getting the solution on the rest of the neck. 

 

Fuzz Guitar Pedal

Every budding guitarist will eventually want a guitar pedal. Some of the essential guitar pedals are fuzz pedals. And thankfully Guitartricks has a new video talking about three different fuzz pedals from Wampler Effects, Keeley Electronics and LunaStone. And we’re giving away all three! Stay on the blog for more info on the giveaways. 

 

Gator Guitar Case

Every guitarist needs a case to store their lovely instruments. Cases are also super nice to have if you plan to travel with your guitar, too. We recommend a case from Gator due to their super high quality construction and protection. There are a ton of different cases from Gator that will fit your needs. Check them out! 

 

Blue Yeti Microphone

This microphone is one of the best you can get for at-home recording. Not only does it sound really good, it’s also super easy to use. It plugs right into a USB port in your computer and will work with just about any audio recording software. It’s one of the most popular mics used on YouTube. Seriously, check it out. 

 

BOSS Katana

These solid-state amplifiers from BOSS strike a great balance between value and tone. You can choose between a 1x12 or a 2x12 speaker set, and each Katana comes with 55 built-in effects, 5 amp voices, and access to BOSS Tone Central software via the USB port. The software gives you absolute control over your amp, allowing you to customize each effect, and setting. 

 

Electric Bow

Sometimes referred to as an “E bow,” this device is used in place of a traditional pick. It reacts to the pickups by creating a bow effect, and ultimately your guitar will sound like an electric violin or cello. It’s super fun to play with and has been used by Smashing Pumpkins, Steve Vai, Van Halen and more.
