GLARRY Full Size Electric Bass Guitar Beginner Kit 4 String Exquisite Basswood Bass with 20W AMP, Cable, Strap, Bag and Accessories (Sunset)

GLARRY Full Size Electric Bass Guitar Beginner Kit String 4 Exquisite Basswood Bass with 20W AMP

by GLARRY

BEST GIFT FOR BEGINNER- The Glarry bass guitar kit is a ideal gift for beginners and suits aspiring musicians too. Each 4 strings and string height can be adjusted and you can fine tuning the neck on the top of the fingerboard.

This guitar is a lot of fun, and it's certainly one of the best-looking guitars in our roundup. The wood on the Glarry feels great, and it plays like a nice, solid bass. However, like most electric basses, the Glarry is a little on the bulky side (it's smaller than the Fender Jazz Bass and larger than the Squier Vintage Modified), and it's a little heavy (the Glarry weighs more than 4 pounds). The amp sounds pretty good for such a small amp: It has plenty of volume, and the effects are decent. The amp's controls are a little confusing at first: They have five buttons on the top, but only four function. The fifth button turns the amp on and off, but it's labeled Power, so you might not even realize it. The amp's headphone jack is sub-par; it's small, and the audio output is scratchy and muffled. The guitar comes with a decent strap and a case, both of which are excellent. The guitar also has some accessories, including picks, a tuner, a cable, and a practice mute.

ZUWEI DIY Electric Guitar Kits BSESPUN - Basswood Body, Humbuckers Single Pickup, Banada Headstock, Maple Neck, Black Hardware 22F with 3.4 Feet Cable

ZUWEI DIY Electric Guitar Kits BSESPUN

by ZUWEI

Premium Tone: rosewood fingerboard & durable strings with better toughness will not hurt your hands when you press the strings. The tone is bright, balanced and full

It's hard to find an electric guitar kit that's as easy to assemble as this ZÜWEI. The guitar comes in a clean-looking black paintjob, with a Floyd Rose bridge, a single humbucker pickup, and maple neck. The hardware, including the bridge, nut, and saddle, are black. The neck is maple, and the fretboard is black. The guitar is light, and the playability is decent. The intonation is good, and the guitar sounds a little bloated, which is typical of electric guitars, but it's a good sound and a lot of fun to play. The controls are simple, and the guitar has a 3.4-foot cable. The one drawback is that, while the neck is maple, the body appears to be basswood. The basswood body feels a little cheap, but it should hold up over time. There's also a small scratch on the neck, but it's not noticeable unless you really look. Overall, this is a fun, affordable, lightweight, beginner-friendly electric guitar that's easy to use, and easy to customize.

6 Strings Acoustic Guitar Starter Kit for Beginner,38 Inch Basswood Classical Guitar with GuitarBag,Strap,Pick,LCD Tuner,Pickguard,Strings Set Black

ANHH 6 Strings Acoustic Starter Guitar Kit for Beginner

by ANHH0000741

A ideal guitar to learn or continue the journey/drawing from knowledge of premium professional instruments to give beginners and experienced players a top quality, great value instrument

This guitar is a great value for the money. The basswood body was fairly light, so the guitar felt less bulky than some entry-level models. The chromatic tuner and strap were both nice additions, and the guitar came with a pick and a string set. The guitar sounded great, with a bright sound that cut through well. The strings were smooth to the touch, and the action was low, so the guitar was easy to play. The guitar also comes with a case, which is helpful, and it's compact and easy to carry. The basswood body isn't as durable as solid wood, so it's a little softer and dents more easily, but it's durable enough for a beginner, and you won't feel any discomfort after playing it for several hours. It's also worth pointing out that this guitar is handcrafted, so it's made in China, but it's well worth the money.
