As a guitarist, there's nothing more exciting than purchasing a new axe. And compared to 50 years ago, it has never been easier to find a well-built guitar that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg. In fact, companies like Charvel, G&L, Washburn and many others take great pride in providing reasonably priced intermediate guitars that often consist of the same meticulous attention to detail, woods, and materials as a professional guitar.
Much like individual music tastes, what makes the perfect guitar is a matter of one person's opinion. After all, everyone has their own playing style and set of influences. For example, if you're a fan of easy-listening folk rock, you'd likely prefer a nylon-stringed classical guitar over a B.C Rich NT Warlock. Of course, if you're a head banging metal virtuoso, then the B.C NT Warlock is exactly what you're looking for. Simply put, music is inherently subjective, which is why the selection you're currently viewing has been laid out to include an intermediate guitar for every walk of life.
Throughout this catalog, you'll find a massive range of top-selling intermediate guitars, including the Epiphone EJ-200CE acoustic-electric guitar. Modeled after the Gibson classic J-200, this version consists of a jumbo maple body with a select spruce top, crown inlays on the fingerboard, and a monstrous sound courtesy of the eSonic2 preamp with a built-in-tuner and NanoFlex/NanoMag pickups. Solidly built from top to bottom, this acoustic-electric instrument is more than capable of bringing out the best in your performance. Another popular item is the Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster. Featuring a 21-fret vintage tint gloss maple neck, and outfitted with a custom set of Alnico 5 single-coil pickups, this Telecaster produces a beautifully dynamic response, a strong midrange, and a high end snarl for leads that would make even the most expert player drool with delight.
You don't have to be a musical prodigy to justify the purchase of a well-made guitar. The fact is, every guitar player deserves to play an instrument that's capable of playing and sounding flawless through countless amounts of usage. Just remember that when you're ready to move up from the beginner instrument you currently own, this section has no shortage of exceptional intermediate guitars to make your skills fully realized.
