The MusicRadar community helps you choose

Squier classic vibe

Whether you're buying your first axe, or you're a nervous parent trying to choose a guitar-shaped birthday present that A) won't break the bank, and B) doesn't sound like a bag of spanners… you've come to right place.

We, the MusicRadar community, like to think we know a thing or two about buying gear, so we're pooling our combined knowledge, experience and past purchases (the good and the avoidable) to bring you a definitive list of the best (and fail-safe) all-rounder electrics under £300.

What to do now...

If you have a suggestion: check the street price (new guitars only please – second hand is a whole new ball park), log in, and leave a comment below. If you need inspiration: scroll through the comments – we'll highlight those guitars with the most votes just for you.

This is a brand new feature so if you can't find what you're looking for, check back tomorrow. It's also the first of many so stay tuned for mid-priced and high-end gear options coming soon.

Come on! Help a fellow guitarist out…
