What is the best mid-price electric guitar? £1000 buys you a whole lotta axe. For a grand (or roughly $1500 US) you can buy a brand new instrument built for life on the road that will see you through hundreds of gigs and recording sessions.
Here we've gathered a carefully curated selection of 25 of the highest scoring guitars to hit the mid-price category in the last few years. It's not all 'the big two' either - while the Fender Cabronita Telecaster and Gibson 2015 Les Paul Studio both represent excellent value for money - there's a whole world of idiosyncratic designs now available outside of the high-end market.
