Best Electric Guitar Brand Under £1000 #1

Cort

WHY?

Cort are the largest manufacturer of guitars in the World - producing guitars for the biggest names in the Industry.

Cort Guitars are the "go to" manufacturer of the biggest brand names because they have the highest levels of quality and consistency due to the most up to date and constantly evolving production techniques

Because people tend to be very easily led by marketing and hype they tend to buy the brands MADE BY Cort - rather than A Cort - for this reason you will get far more guitar for your money if buyig a Cort guitar due to lower prices

No question therefore that Cort guitars deserve a mention for being one of the best electric guitars you can buy under £1000 - although most of their guitars will be well below £1000 - 50-75% of £1000 - but they will be comparible to guitars you will see by the brands they produce for nearer the £1000 mark.

Best Electric Guitar Brand Under £1000 #2

FGN

WHY?

If you have read about Cort guitars you will know you have "brands" and you have ACTUAL manufacturers.

Fujigen is a factory and FGN is the "in house" brand for Fujigen.

Why is that important? Well - Fujigen are responsible for some of the most iconic electric guitars in history and built their name as the leader of high end mass produced guitars.

The phrase "MIJ Guitar" was coined from the successes of the Fujigen factory because the Fujgen factory is in JAPAN (MIJ = Made In Japan).

You have to experience a FGN instrument to fully understand and appreciate the incredible level of detail and attention to quality - such as fret work including polishing and fret ends = so beautifully smooth, I know it sounds geeky but if you run your hands down an FGN fretboard its like no other at the price - brilliant and their fretwork alone sets them apart from any other guitar manufacturer at this price.

Even if you dont buy a Cort or a FGN - you do at least now know where some of your other guitars probably came from if they are "big brands".

Godin

WHY?

Produced in Quebec - Canada - Godin guitars dont just build guitars - they truly innovate.

SO many electric guitar brands merely knock out same ol' same ol' models and designs - and as I have mentioned generally don't even make them (They just "brand" them and leave it to the marketing team to do the rest).

Godin on the other hand have been constantly evolving - constantly thinking about what electric guitar players need ion stage or recording.

HDR (H Definition Revoicer) was one innovation - they also specialise in hybrid electrics with acoustic pickups - as well as more contemporary designs you are used to seeing by American brands - but always with their own useful - well thought out design features.

Quality from Godin is once again - impeccable.

Godin guitars tend to be the choice instrument of pro players around the World - Session musicians who need rely on a consistent, stable instrument rather than the famous frontmen who get paid by big brands to have their guitars seen by a massive audience.
