End of Summer Update: Best Reviewed Guitars of 2019

A guitar I’ve wanted to try since its 2018 return, the Guild Jetstar is our #1 guitar so far!

As we begin to dig into the second half of the year, we’ll be wrapping up our year of guitar, bass, amp, and pedal reviews. At the end of the calendar year, we’ll be putting out our buying guides and gear roundup articles looking at the best products in different price categories. As a reminder, all these reviews are HAND REVIEWS, meaning I was fortunately loaned or sent each product I review. So before we take a look at the best sub-$500 guitars of 2019 or the best practice amp options, let’s see how the top 5 guitars currently stack up, regardless of price.
