Good entry level instruments can be a tad tricky to hunt out. There's the usual go to guitars, like the Yamaha Pacifica and the base squire strat. This one is worth considering though

The thing here is that the guitar is £98 + £4.95 delivery (a good price)
But if you spend £1+ more then delivery is free. So you may as well make the most of that. In this case I've added a cable for £4 to bring it to a total of £102.

Add 1x Stagg 1.5m Speaker Cable
and obviously the Guitar

Other suggestions:


A good idea to have extra strings anyway.

The G Series represents a logical evolution of the term "vintage". It is modern yet retains the familiar characteristics of the classic double-cutaway design in an aesthetically tasteful manner. This double-cutaway collection includes a wide variety of options and features to best meet a player's specific needs and requirements. G100'S single-coil pickups to provide authentic classic sounds are equally at home for vintage rock, blues, pop or country.

DOUBLE CUTAWAY
The G100 features a double cutaway body for classic styling, comfort, and easy access to the higher register of the fretboard.

POWERSOUND SINGLE COIL PICKUPS
The G100 features three Powersound single-coil pickups to provide authentic classic sounds that are equally at home for vintage rock, blues, pop or country. The 5-way selector switch and single tone control offer a wide variety of tonal options at your fingertips.

39mm(1 17/32") BODY
Conceived with the younger beginners in mind, the thinner body reduces the weight for a nice balance between the body and the neck as well as enhancing playability and reducing fatigue.

FIXED BRIDGE
The fixed hardtail bridge provides tuning stability and a solid focused sound as well as facilitating easier and faster string changes for the beginner player learning the ins and outs of the instrument.

OPEN PORE FINISH
Besides improving the resonance of the woods for a livelier sound, the open pore finish better retains the natural grains of the woods for a more luxurious look and feel.

NECK-BODY JOINT BEVELED HEEL
Unlike the square-cut heel of traditional bolt-on guitars, the heel on the G-Series guitars are beveled round for easier and smoother access to the frets in the high register of the fingerboard.

SATIN FINISH NECK
A clean look as well as no drag on your fingers due to the smooth satin finish means more comfort, increased speed and enhanced playability.

I’ve never played a Cort. Are they any good (obviously at this price point we’re talking bottom rung of the ladder but how do they compare with base model Squiers and Epiphones?

Looks nice for the money, I like the neck to body join. Richards guitars have a double humbucker version with 'professional' setup tailored to you for £139 if that's the way you wanna go. Heat added

My lad had a Cort and it was fine. S-type but less Strat like - had the same neck bolt layout but double coil splittable humbuckers.

Just get a Squier. Nothing beats it in this price range/quality.

For a starter guitar I'd take this over a squier bullet. Especially for the fixed bridge.
I got a Strat copy from Thomann. Very pleased with it after a little set up tweaking. Did I mention it was cheaper as well? Don't be put off by the low price they are well built and IMO better than a Squier and as good as a Yamaha! The 'Modern C' shape neck is slightly thinner than a Squier C shape and ideal for smaller hands.
I don't believe I have ever seen a sale as such at Thomann so deals are rarely posted on HUKD but the already low prices and excellent customer service should tempt you to have a look?

Years ago when I used to gig and played the clubs/pubs I use to have a couple of cheap guitars and they’re ideal for scalloping the neck to see if it suits you and saves you screwing up your main guitar if you do it wrong. I played quite a few Malmsteen solos and really liked the feel of it, it felt much easier to play fast but it might not be for everyone.
Take a look at this little collection
