Sterling Cutlass

Moving on down the list, we come to the ever popular Sterling Cutlass. Their signature body style and triple pick-up design (in both HSS and SSS) makes them the choice for guitarists who know how they want to rock and are ready to plug and play. They come in a variety of colors and pickup arrangements, so be sure to check often for the exact model you’re looking for!

Sterling Stingray

A bigger body = A more fun guitar, right? The Stingray is a lot like its brother, the Cutlass, but bigger, meaner, and just a little more expensive. The Cutlass comes with two Humbucker pickups, for a signature sound like no other.

Gretsch Jet Club Series

Last but absolutely not least, comes the Gretsch Jet Club Series of electric guitars. Gretsch is one of the most recognizable brands in the electric guitar world, and their entry level Jet Club guitars pack all the quality and sound of a Gretsch inside an affordable, stylish body anyone will love.
