Parts in your new guitar need only be quality. What am I really saying? Unfortunately, and I know this will be terribly sad news, so brace yourself.... Guitars need not be expensive to be great. Yes, the cat's out of the bag. It troubles me to have to tell you this. It's not always the parts that make the guitar it's how they're put together. This doesn't mean that guitarists need to choose guitars like they choose a girlfriend. After all most have the same parts-and are remarkably different in how they're put together.
