We asked you to pick your favourite from our top-reviewing guitars of the past 12 months and you responded in your thousands. Now the public have well-and-truly spoken, we can reveal your choices for the best electric guitar of 2014...
DiVill by Italia M100
Italia's another brand from guitar designer's Trev Wilkinson's stable (Fret King, Vintage) and is used to house some of his more outlandish electric guitar ideas.
As of 2014, Italia is also home to affordable sub-brand DiVill. We were particularly impressed by launch model the M100, a lightweight single-cut with serious upper-fret access and hot-rodded humbuckers.
Sabre Syren 6
UK luthier Christian Howe's clever batch-order system means that you can bag a luthier made axe for the price of a factory-made model.
We tried out the shred-focussed Syren 6 back in July and were bowled over by it's effortless playability and build. The quality of guitars Howe is producing for the money is quite amazing.
G&L Tribute Series ASAT Deluxe II
Leo Fender's ASAT shape recalls his earlier Telecaster design for sure, but with the new Tribute Series ASAT Deluxe II, G&L has made a guitar for individuals.
It plays fast, but the boxier body and dual humbuckers mean it appeals equally to SG and Les Paul-lovers, as well as fans of the big F.
Squier Vintage Modified Baritone Jazzmaster
A reliable baritone electric with a sub-£350/$500 street price is a rare thing indeed, but that's exactly what Squier has managed to produce with the Vintage Modified Baritone Jazzmaster.
We love the 60s design quirks, the astonishing tuning stability and the array of alt-rock friendly tones available, particularly when paired with a decent overdrive.
Caparison C2 ANG-QE
Japanese firm Caparison has picked up some heavy-weight heavy rock endorsees, with Motörhead, Killswitch Engage chief among them.
The C2 ANG-QE - essentially a stripped-down version of the much more expensive Angelus - hails the firm's entry into the mid-price market. It's a lot of guitar for the money and metal players will be very lucky if they find a better instrument for a similar outlay.
Ibanez Roadcore RC320M
A new design with a classic look, the Roadcore RC320M boasts a slimline mahogany body, custom Core Tone pickups and a wallet-friendly price tag.
Despite the low price, it feels - as the name suggest - built for the road and it's an easy, comfortable play that's particularly suited to garage rock and punk styles.

Fender Vintage Hot Rod '60s Telecaster
Another year, another stately revamp of Fender's classic shapes. 2014's Vintage Hot Rod '60s Tele does the trick once more, combining classic looks but leaving slavish reconstruction behind in favour of modern playability.
The Texas Special (middle) and Custom Shop Twisted Tele neck pickups offer plenty of tonal options, while the narrow jumbo frets and compound radius 'board make for a struggle-free play experience.
Gibson 2014 SG Special
Offering superb value, classic rock tones and modern versatility, this SG is special indeed.
It's one of the less expensive SGs of the range, with an MSRP of £699/$1,634, but tonally it punches above its price tag.
PRS S2 Singlecut
The S2 range sees the premium-obsessed PRS finally put a US-made guitar in the hands of mere mortals.
Using Korean-made parts and US assembly, the S2 has struck a chord with many players due to it's excellent build/playability and the kind of no-frills design touches previously unseen on a PRS guitar.
