How choose the best electric guitar under 300?
We are already playing in another league of instruments, if we compare with the range of fewer than $200.
The thickness of the body on a guitar affects the sound a lot, if the body of the guitar is thin the sound will be bright, likewise if the body is wide and large the sound of the guitar will be serious and with good bass.
In the market we get guitars with nylon strings or with metal strings, we must bear in mind that it is not convenient to change the type of string to an electro acoustic guitar, so it is necessary to select the type of string well before buying. If you opt for an electro acoustic guitar with metallic strings, these come with thick gauge strings, we recommend lowering the thickness of the strings to a maximum of 0.10.

The Epiphone AJ-220SCE combines valid electronics with the unmistakable timbre of mahogany. This is a dreadnought with Venetian cutaway. The woods offer a good sound to the guitar, with a good output volume. The sound is rich on averages, a bit lacking on bass and treble. After all, it is known that mahogany offers this timbre.
The soundboard (top) is in sitka spruce with tortoiseshell pickguard. The neck is mahogany with a D-shaped profile, well cared for and smooth with twenty medium jumbo frets. The binding, well done, is white, has an excellent contrast on both the Natural version, both on Sunburst and Ebony.

Eko Ranger 6 EQ VR
The first edition of this guitar takes us back to 1962 when Eko decides to produce a series of folk guitar based on the popular Dreadnought shape, very fashionable in America in those times. The first 6 string guitar took the name of J54 and immediately had an immediate success in terms of playability and price.
To meet the demand of many loyalists, Eko continues the tradition of the Ranger with the Vintage Reissue series which includes various features such as the original models, such as the bolt-on neck, adjustable aluminum saddle, zero-fret and rectangular dots. Technically improved, it maintains the same combination of woods, with mahogany for back and sides and spruce for the top. A retro look thanks to the revisited pickguard keeping the typical shape of the past.
- Bolt-On neck
- Adjustable Bridge
- Zero Fret
- Flat, electric guitar feeling neck
Electro acoustic guitars were designed to create varied sounds and melodies, for the enrichment of artistic genres different from conventional ones.
