Kids Electric Guitar For Sale:
I love finding a bargains on kids electric guitar and am an absolute sucker for any kind of inexpensive or cheap instruments for kids.
Fact is that I wouldn’t want to invest a whole lot into any guitar for a beginner, but at the same time I want something that the aspiring guitarist would be able to comfortably play, and something that looks nice enough to be played in front of friends or neighbors.
A great place to find good but inexpensive kids electric guitars is at RondoMusic.com .
Also like browsing sites like Musicians friend.com because you can find a lot of good deals on returned and clearance models. (It
actually tells you if there is any such inventory when looking at any item they carry, which is kinda cool…)
Craigslist is also pretty cool to find local people selling their electric guitars, and alto it is up to you to negotiate the deal, usually in cash, if you have the ability to wheel and deal, you can actually come out with some fantastic bargains on a decent axe. I have also met some interesting folks that way, fellow pickers and such…
Finding good prices on kids electric guitar:
One of the best ways I have found for getting some killer buys on kids electric guitars and other gear like amplifiers and effects pedals is to find and browse clearance sections from my favorite guitar dealers.
There are several categories which clearance guitars for kids fall into:
These are the ends of production runs that have only small numbers left, and therefore not worth taking up any more advertising space. A lot of the time these guitars are not actually discontinued, but change their appearance or packaging slightly.
Factory second quality kids guitars. These usually have minor cosmetic flaws like finish runs, small chips or scratches, etc. These make excellent project and mod guitars.
Customer Returns and Damages:
These are guitars that have been sold but returned due to some obvious damage or defect. These you have to be a little more diligent about, but are great for finding replacement parts. ( Imagine finding a guitar with a broke neck for $100 that the pickups, switches, and hardware like tuners, bridge, and controls cold easily be worth twice that… )

These are less common but still happen from time to time, some guitar company will release a real dud, or really overproduce some model, and they need to reduce their inventory to make room for more in demand models… (Great way of finding really weird colored or shaped guitars sometimes…)
Factory Refurbished Guitars:
These are guitars that have been recalled at some point due to a common defect (or stopped from initially shipping) and the defect then fixed or repaired at the factory. These are usually excellent bargains when you can find them…
Used electric guitars:
I generally like finding these locally, because it is better to get a look at the conditions…
