Home > Guitars > Electric Guitars

An electric guitar is a guitar that uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to convert vibrations of its metal strings into electric signals. Since the generated signal is too weak to drive a loudspeaker, it is amplified before sending it to a loudspeaker. Since the output of an electric guitar is an electric signal, the signal may easily be altered using electronic circuits to add color to the sound. Often the signal is modified using effects such as reverb and distortion.


Best instruments

  • FENDER SQUIER VINTAGE MODIFIED JAGUAR


    With its offset waist, contoured body and 24”-scale “fast action” neck, the new Vintage Modified Jaguar HH gives a nod to its iconic forbearer, but it has much more going for it that makes it truly “modified.”

  • EPIPHONE EXPLORER GT


    When it was first unveiled in 1958 as part of the Modernist series, the Explorer was the most radical electric guitar the world had ever seen. At the time, it was way ahead of the game, and just too extreme for most players to handle. Come the heavy rock of the ’60s and metal of the ’70s, however, and the revitalized Explorer proved itself the most popular design on the market. Now Epiphone brings you a hot, new twist on this iconic model in the form of the Explorer GT. Featuring a slightly smaller and lighter-weight mahogany body (scaled down by about 85%), this new GT is the most comfortable Explorer yet, but its sound remains huge and totally in-your-face, thanks to a slightly longer 25.5” scale length that yields the fullest, firmest lows you’ve ever heard from an Explorer, and two supercharged U.S.A.-designed pickups that translate it all like never before.

  • EPIHONE LES PAUL BLACK BEAUTY


    The Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty 3 is an electric guitar that sounds amazing and looks great. As its name implies, The Les Paul Black Beauty is the pinnacle of elegance in looks and tone. With its third Humbucking pickup in the middle position, this Custom is well-equipped for amazing delivery of both sound and expression.

  • EPIHONE LES PAUL LP-100


    All the Les Paul features in an affordable bolt-neck version. It features a slimmer body for comfort and hot open-coil Alnico V Humbucker pickups on a carved top with full controls.

  • EPIPHONE BB KING LUCILLE


    You can own a legendary guitar. The Lucille, designed by the man himself, is a semi-hollowbody with no F-holes, and therefore a unique, unmistakable voice. It also features a TP-6 fine-tuning tailpiece, two Humbucker pickups, Vari-tone switch, and stereo outputs. Her name is inlaid on the headstock, just as B.B. King insists.

  • FENDER CLASSIC SERIES 50 STRATOCASTER


    The Classic Series ’50s Stratocaster® guitar epitomizes the vibe of the ’50s. The color selection alone - Surf Green, Daphne Blue and Fiesta Red - takes you back to the era of diners, Ike and cars with fins. With a maple fretboard, tinted neck, single-ply pickguard and aged plastic parts, it’s authentically retro, and the three single-coil pickups with staggered alnico magnet pole pieces deliver that unmistakable ’50s Stratocaster sound.

  • FENDER BLACKTOP JAGUAR HH


    Drive your sound with raw humbucking power. Fender’s new and innovative Blacktop™ guitar series expands the sonic horizon of classic Fender Stratocaster®, Telecaster®, Jazzmaster® and Jaguar® guitars by powering them with high-gain humbucking pickups. The Blacktop series delivers on modern player demands for a thick and heavy sound with guitars that drive a wide array of deep, rich and aggressive tones that match the intensity of any playing style.

  • G&L 30TH ANNIVERSARY LEGACY


    The G&L company was Leo Fender’s vision, an avenue for him to pioneer new ideas in guitar and bass design. At G&L, Leo’s engineering brilliance rewarded musicians around the world, as he focused all the knowledge and experience he had gained in the prior thirty years to create, in his words, "the finest instruments I have ever made."

  • FENDER SQUIER AFFINITY TELECASTER


    The Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Electric Guitar is the quintessential rockabilly, blues, and country solidbody. This is a modern Telecaster with the same classic shape it had in the ’50s! Covered die-cast chrome machine heads provide tuning stability unheard-of in this price range. Maple fretboard on a classic maple neck and solid alder body. 2 single-coil pickups with 3-way switch, and volume and tone controls. A genuine Squier by Fender means the Affinity Series Telecaster will have good resale value.

  • EPIPHONE SG G400


    This Epiphone G-400 is truly one of the best values in the guitar industry. Every serious guitar player wants an SG, and here’s a real one that sounds as good as it looks. Epiphone’s G-400 has been one of the best-selling set-neck guitars in the world for years and perhaps the most famous version of the guitar that for seven years in the 1960’s, actually replaced the Les Paul body shape! The G-400 from Epiphone is truly the SG that you think of when you think "SG".

  • EPIPHONE SEMIACOUSTIC WILDKAT ROYALE


    The Wildkat Royale features all gold hardware, including gold historic metal Epiphone name "badge" on the headstock, gold Epiphone P-90 Classic pickups, gold Grover® machine heads, gold strap button, and a one-of-a-kind gold B70 licensed Bigsby® vibrato.

  • FENDER SQUIER J MASCIS JAZZMASTER GUITAR


    Squier honors alt-rock godfather and Dinosaur Jr. leader J Mascis with a striking new Jazzmaster guitar model that delivers as much massive sound and performance as its namesake. The pickups, hardware and finish are all specified by Mascis himself for tremendous tone and value.

  • FENDER SQUIER VINTAGE MODIFIED JAZZMASTER


    With its offset waist and contoured body the new Vintage Modified Jazzmaster by Fender Squier gives a nod to its iconic forbearer but has other things going for it that make it truly ’modified’.

  • FENDER KURT COBAIN MUSTANG


    Inspired by his arsenal of modded guitars, the new Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang takes you back there, with highly distinctive features including an angled single-coil Mustang neck pickup and ferocious Seymour Duncan® JB humbucking bridge pickup mounted directly to the body, dual on-off/phase in-out switches for each pickup, a polyester-finished alder body and an Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with dynamic vibrato tailpiece.

  • FENDER AMERICAN VINTAGE ’72 TELECASTER CUSTOM

    Fender’s American Vintage ’72 Telecaster Custom guitar authentically evokes a historic member of the Telecaster family. Period-correct early-’70s details include a three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt™ adjustment, bullet truss rod nut and vintage-style “F” tuners; with touches including a Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup redesigned and re-voiced to sound even more like a 1970s pickup.

  • GIBSON PAT MARTINO SIGNATURE


    Pat Martino creates distinctive sounds that embody thoughtful energy and soul. As a musician, philosopher, and artist, Martino’s pioneering spirit has influenced jazz musicians around the world. That same spirit has inspired the Pat Martino Signature Model. Featuring appointments aimed at tone and playability, this instrument reflects the exciting combination of Gibson’s legendary design with Pat Martino’s soulful style.

  • GIBSON LES PAUL STUDIO 50’S TRIBUTE HUMBUCKER

    Released midway through 2010, the Les Paul Studio ’50s Tribute packed the stripped-down appeal of the long-running Studio line in a great ’50s-themed model with P-90 pickups that was a major hit with players everywhere, and sold out quickly as a result. Now the Les Paul Studio ’50s Tribute Humbucker from Gibson USA captures the same popular look and feel, updated with the PAF-style humbucking pickups that hit the Les Paul model later that decade. Being introduced first at Thomann, this is sure to be one of the most desirable formats introduced to the Les Paul Studio series since its inception in 1983.

  • GIBSON LES PAUL STUDIO PRO PLUS

    The original idea for the Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar was to create a somewhat lower-priced Paul by dispensing with some cosmetics. The result was an especially clean, handsome guitar with all the Les Paul essentials. The Les Paul Studio Pro Plus steps up its game and narrows the gap with a potent humbucker combo of BurstBucker Pro in the bridge and 490R in the neck that deliver warm rhythm and hot, solid lead sounds with the added tonal flexibility of coil-splitting. Hallmark Les Paul features include a set mahogany neck with ’60s SlimTaper profile, rosewood fingerboard, and mahogany body with a AA flamed maple top with your choice of nitro finishes.

  • GIBSON LES PAUL BFG GATOR

    The Les Paul BFG Gator has a fun and effective "kill switch" in the usual position of the three-way selector puts plenty of new tricks up this BFG’’s sleeve, while the inclusion of a pair of pickups that represent the best of Gibson’’s innovative history provides a surprisingly wide range of sweet and snarling voices. Wrap it all in a stunning Gator Green nitrocellulose finish complemented by black-plated hardware, a green Gibson logo, and a markerless fingerboard, and you’’ve got a stunning new addition to the Les Paul BFG family.

  • GIBSON BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG LES PAUL JUNIOR

    Simple, straightforward, and to-the-point rock tone : that’s why Billie Joe rocks a vintage Junior and why you’ll love the Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior electric guitar. Billie Joe’s signature model is a modern re-creation of the vintage Juniors he plays on stage. While the Junior may have started life as a budget model, it has proven it has the muscle to deliver the powerful sounds needed for modern music. The flat-top, single-cutaway mahogany body and single dog-ear, double-coil H-90 pickup combination is unbeatable for punchy, defined-yet-dirty tone. The mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard (ebony on classic white model) and ’1960 slim-tapered neck profile is comfy and gives you something solid to hold on to. It also has a wraparound compensated bridge, nickel tuners, and volume and tone controls.

  • GIBSON JONAS BROTHERS MELODY MAKER

    To celebrate the success of Jonas Brothers, Gibson USA has created this special Jonas Brothers Melody Maker, a guitar designed in the image of the original single—cutaway Melody Maker of 1959/’60, but with popular upgrades to solidify its status as a genuine tone machine. For several years, players in the know have turned to the Melody Maker as an accessible piece of genuine Gibson tonal splendor, and added their own slight modifications to turn this entry—level guitar into a true rock monster.
