Ion Audio Discover Electric Guitar

Crank the volume all the way to 11 on this solid wood, 6-string electric guitar that makes the perfect gift for first-time musicians. Plug into an amp during a jam session, headphones during quiet hours, or a computer to digitally track and record all your tunes. The guide and tutorials break down basic chords and songs so that you can start strumming as soon as you open the case. With this fine instrument in your hands, you’re one step closer to the cover of Rolling Stone. Rock on. (Ion Audio, $101.35)
