Electric Guitars For Sale on Reverb

Electric guitars have come to define the very soul of rock, country and countless other genres of popular music. With brands like Gibson, Fender, Rickenbacker, Gretsch and others elevating and perfecting the format in the '50s, electric guitars have evolved over the decades with new designs constantly pushing the instrument into new territory.

In the '80s brands like Charvel, Kramer, and Ibanez dominated the scene with slick "shredder" guitars. Moving into the '90s, makers like Paul Reed Smith helped lay the groundwork for a movement of boutique builders who've taken the art of guitar craft to its current height.

Today, you can find all manner of electric guitars here on Reverb. Whether you're looking for a beginner instrument or a high-end masterwork, find deals on new, used, vintage and boutique electric guitars in our marketplace.

What are electric guitars?

Electric guitars are electric stringed instruments most traditionally played by being worn over the shoulder (or balanced on the knee), fretted with one hand, and plucked or strummed with the other. When the strings are played, magnetic pickups take the sound and send it to an amplifier to make it louder. They’ve been popular in music since the mid-1900s.

Which is the best electric guitar for beginners?

The best electric guitar for beginners is one that is not overly expensive, is comfortable for the player, has decent quality construction, and makes the player excited to play! For a first electric guitar, we recommend looking into starter guitar kits that come with a guitar, and amplifier, a strap, cables, and oftentimes a lesson book.
