Still trying to learn Stairway to Heaven? These guitars will mean that no matter where you are you can always crack out a riff.
Traveler Escape EG-1 – £500
Kitted out with a full-sized humbucker pickup, the Escape can easily handle clean and distorted tones. The only problem is that you‚Äôll be scared of scratching it.
Pignose PGG-200 – £180
The only thing pig-like about this sleek riff-monster is the squealing of the built-in speaker when you rip out a gnarly solo. Just remember that when the neighbours complain about the noise you can always plug the headphones in.
Steinberger Spirit GT-Pro – £300
This axe is pure rock 'n' roll. Ergonomically stripped down to the basics, with a tiny body rammed full with three eardrum-splitting pickups. All you need now is a TV and an open window.
Hofner Shorty – £100
This '80s reissue bypasses all of the big hair, tight jeans and make-up, instead providing a versatile and robust guitar that'll hold its tuning way after the nostalgia fades.
Aria AS-100C – £250
If melting marshmallows around a campfire in the middle of nowhere sounds like your perfect weekend, you‚Äôll need this guitar to keep spirits high when the inevitable rain pours. It even has a detachable frame, making it easier to carry if a pack of killer rabbits corners you.
