For the person who loves guitars and loves to build, this is the perfect gift. Building an electric guitar gives a depth of love for the instrument. Stain the wood for an extra bit of customization.
The most classic gift for someone with an electric guitar. When we bought it, we mistook it as a beginner practice amp but oh boy we were wrong. Our cheap guitar sounded like a real guitar because of it.
- A lot of sound for a little amp
- Perfect for beginners
- Solid construction
Effect pedals are incredibly cool. They change the sound of electric guitars – to the point it makes the guitar sound like something completely different. Its the next step any electric guitar player will want to take after (a) learning to play and (b) having an amp.
The pedal space is as diverse as they come. Our favorite to start with though is Cry Baby Wah Guitar Effect Pedal. Used by the greats like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton.
Ebow stands for electronic bow. Instead of using a pick you use the ebow which vibrates the string for you. It mimics the sound of strings, horns – sounds that are usually unavailable for an electric guitar to produce.
Checkout this video for a demonstration of what is possible with the ebow:
Gig bags are like clothing – a guitar player’s fashion statement. If you want a simple high-quality gift, then a gig bag might be the way for you to go. The thicker the better, if only for the protection of the guitar. A thin case is little better than wrapping it in a sheet. I recommend gator cases since they balance quality with price.
