Let’s take another look at some of the “best” pro leve, E.G. very pricey and nice guitars out for the 2021 model year. To wit!

4.)PRS SPECIAL SEMI HOLLOW

For a scant $4,300 you can have what may be the most versatile PRS ever. It features a mahogany flamed maple top, mahogany neck at 25.5 in scale.The frets are medium jumbo and the pickups are PRS proprietary. Controls include a five way switch, and two, yes, two mini toggle switches for coil tapping both humbuckers. It also has a gen 3 trem with prs locking tuners for tuning stability. The sonic options are quite varied indeed. A variety of colors are available as well. Not to mention she is a semi hollow which some players prefer. This is a pricey axe to be sure. It’s not everyday that one puts down 4k on a guitar. However, given the quality and exclusivity, it’s likely to hold it’s value well making it a good investment.

This is a very important guitar from prs. It’s the best of just about everything that they have learned about making a great instrument. Here is a full review on just this guitar.

5.)YAMAHA SA2200

For a mere $2k, you can get your hands on this classic hollow body design by yamaha. You may be thinking, ‘2k for a guitar that wishes it was a Gibson?”. It’s a pretty penny to be sure, let’s find out why. It features a sycamore/maple body and maple neck at 24-¾ scale with an ebony fingerboard. Pickups are proprietary alnico mag from the builder. The usual tone controls are present as well as gotoh tuners. The neck on this one feels thin and fast. True, it reminds one of an ES style guitar, but it is quite well built with good materials. Still, one would be forgiven for just getting the guitar that this one is based on.

6.)GIBSON SG STANDARD

For a mere $1.5k you can get a classic SG. it features a mahogany body and neck at 24.75 scale. The frets are medium jumbo and pups are gibsons own. The controls are what you expect on this model and it’s about as traditional as traditional gets. You can have it in any color you want as long as it’s cherry or black. This guitar doesn’t break the mold. It doesn’t seek to be new and different. This is the classic SG done in high quality materials. It’s not the epiphone version, it’s the real deal. AC/DC fans love these of course as do indie rock acts and just about everyone. It’s a classic.

7.)ERNIE BALL MUSIC MAN ST. VINCENT GOLDIE

For $3k, you get this axe that looks vintage an futuristic at the same time. The body is made of okoume with a roasted maple neck at 25.5 scale. The fretboard is ebony/rosewood with 22 medium frets. The pups are 3 music man custom mini buckers. You get a five wat switch and vol/tone knobs, and the vincent tremolo system. The draw of this guitar has a lot to do with it’s looks. It’s something that looks vintage but also looks modern. It’s just an interesting design and stands out for that reason.
