Here at Guitar Space, we are a community of guitar enthusiasts, and we want to spread the love for music to anyone with the heart to play.
Whether you’re just starting out and you have no idea which type of guitar is right for you, or you’re a seasoned guitar player looking to invest in a new instrument, we’ve got you covered. We write about electric and acoustic guitars, as well as accessories, pedals, and amps. We also cover ukuleles, mandolins, and banjos, as well as online guitar courses. We’ll also help you navigate guitar maintenance with detailed how-to guides.
We take product recommendations very seriously around here. Before we recommend an alternative guitar, an amp, guitar lesson service, anything — we do extensive research. That starts with researching the history and public reviews of each product or service, including accessing the right scientific studies, consulting experts in the space (guitar teachers, professional musicians, and music industry experts) and reading real people reviews and use cases of each product.
As much as possible, our writers and editorial team use and test each instrument, accessory or service in their real lives. We not only evaluate and discuss the benefits of each product, but we can then talk about the durability, sound, tone, performance and personal nuance, things you might not find in other reviews, but that really matters to our audience.
Every article goes through an extensive editorial process as well to ensure high-quality, relevant content for our audience. We make sure that each article has a clear purpose, gives a clear and tested recommendation, or call to action and is helpful for our audience. We make sure to cite outside sources and document where we got our research from.
Every article is unique, authentic, original content that is not published anywhere else. If we quote or source someone else, we cite it. We also only cite reputable, trusted sources.
If we are making a recommendation of any kind, it’s because we like, use, and have tested the product or service out and would recommend it to our friends and family (and often do!).
We update key articles continuously so we are always recommending the latest products and keeping abreast of the latest health breakthroughs and research available. We also take product recalls very seriously and strive to make sure we are recommending products that are proven, effective and safe.
Our aim at Guitar Space is to give budding musicians the information they need to make wise purchases. There is an overwhelming amount of choice out there when it comes to buying guitars, especially if you’re unfamiliar with some of the technical terms.
That’s where our reviewers come in – we review everything from the latest Fender bass guitar, right down to the best strap for your acoustic. It doesn’t matter what your budget is, either – we cover entry-level guitars right up to the most expensive, up-do-date models.
We also want to provide you with information on guitar maintenance, and where to find the best tutorials and information online.
We have a set of core values at Guitar Space. Here’s what we aim to do:
We want to give you totally honest reviews. This means we’ll tell you exactly what we like about a particular guitar – but we’ll also tell you what we don’t like and point you in the direction of an alternative if we think there’s a better model out there for you. We cover both the pros and cons in detail.
You shouldn’t have to be an expert to understand guitar reviews. We write our reviews in a way that is informative for more experienced guitar players but is simple to understand for complete beginners. That way, everyone can benefit from our knowledge and experience.
If you’re into guitars, you want to know the latest news and developments. You want to know about the latest and greatest models to hit the market – well, so do we! We want to give you up-to-date information, keeping you informed, so you don’t have to worry about trawling the internet for new reviews.
You’ll find a few things here at Guitar Space.
Firstly, we’ll provide you with in-depth product reviews. These reviews will cover all the technical aspects of a guitar, as well as how they look, their price point, and any extra features they may have. We’ll go into all the details so you can decide if it’s right for you. Here are a few examples of our reviews:
Let’s say you’ve managed to narrow down your choice of a guitar to two, but you can’t decide which one you like best. Some models can be very similar in features and pricing, and it can be difficult to choose which one is best. Our product comparisons will directly compare two different models, looking at every aspect of their performance and specifications, so you can decide which one you think is right for you. Here are a few examples:
If you’re a beginner, you might find our guides helpful. Whether you want to know how to find the best acoustic guitar, how to understand the differences between certain types of equipment, or how to find the best pedals, we’ve got you covered with in-depth guides on what to look for and key terms to know. Here are some of our guides:
We don’t just offer reviews. We also have some detailed tutorials on certain aspects of guitar ownership, breaking it down into stages so you can look after your guitar properly – check out some examples here:
We have a number of contributors here at GuitarSpace. Here’s a bit of information about our founder Danny Trent and others who’ve contributed:
Danny Trent has been playing guitar since he was a teenager. Now with over a decade of experience under his belt playing both acoustic and electric guitar at live shows, he still plays in multiple bands and teaches guitar to kids. He’s a full-blown guitar geek, and so he founded Guitar Space so he would have a ready-made excuse to spend even more money on products to review. Now, Guitar Space has grown to include other writers and contributors, but he still enjoys writing reviews and guides, and he wants to help make guitar playing accessible to everyone.
