We have based our list on the following criteria:

1. Reason for making it one of the best guitars in the World – Sound

First off is what does the guitar sounds like. You’d be surprised to know that just because the guitar is more expensive, it doesn’t mean that it sounds better than the cheaper range guitars (although it does help).

Low Action

Most people (especially though who are just starting out) prefer guitars with low action. Action, refers to the distance between the strings and the fret board of the guitar. The lower the action, the easier it will be to push the string down to the fret, but it also makes it more possible that your fret will buzz. 

Looks

Obviously, the first thing that initially attracts people to choosing a particular guitar is what it looks like. Not everybody, of course is fussed about the look and style of the guitar but most people are. From the color, to the style to the wood to the strings.

What it’s made from

A key criteria into what makes a guitar one of the best guitars in the world is what it’s made from. This goes a long way into how it feels whilst playing, to the sound and also the durability.

Reviews

We’ve carried out research from some of the best, well known websites and companies that sell guitars to see what is loved and what is not so loved from their customers. Obviously, the higher the rating from previous customers the better. If you’re looking to buy a guitar and want one of the best guitars in the world then looking for ratings at 80%+, ie 4 out of 5 stars or 8 out of 10 stars etc.
