Video: 14 Roadworthy Guitar Brands That Aren't Fender or Gibson

There are several different factors that determine a guitar's roadworthiness. Some of the most important few include its reliability, durability, and flexibility—you want an instrument that can keep up with your schedule and continue to deliver what you need from it, night after night.

Fender and Gibson are two of the most popular and longstanding guitar brands for a reason—their instruments last for a long time and have a reputation for living up to the demands of the gigging player. But they're nowhere near your only option—especially if you're on a budget.

In the video above, Reverb's Joe Shadid is taking us through some of the toughest, most reliable, and affordable roadworthy options from brands that aren't Fender or Gibson. From PRS favorites like the SE Silver Sky to Reverend's popular Jet Stream 290, the stylish Eastwood Airline, and the affordable models from Sterling, you're sure to find something here that'll suit your needs on the road.
