#1: Fender Vintera '50s Stratocaster

  • Alder body with Road Worn nitrocellulose finish
  • Maple neck with thick soft V-shape and maple fretboard
  • Three ’50s single-coil Hot Strat pickups with 5-way switch
  • 6-saddle synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuners, and synthetic bone nut

Going off of the momentum behind the original Vintera Series, Fender introduced the Road Worn, a vintage-inspired range. The solid-body electric guitar’s alder body gives it the look and feel of a broken-in 1950s original. If you love that vintage feel but with a more affordable price point, this Vintera is the guitar you’ve been looking for.

Price: $1,329.99 $999.99

#2: Sterling Audio Recording Bundle

  • Premium grade converters
  • Micro console form-factor design with a sturdy metal enclosure

#3: Supro 1822 Delta King Amp

  • Front-end gain via 12AX7 tube preamp

  • Pigtronix FAT high-gain mode
  • 3-Band EQ

This is a superb choice for smaller gigs, recording, and home. It’s an all-tube Class A amplifier with a built-in FET boost and a drive channel from Pigtronix. It sounds closest to a tweed style Fender since it’s very clean with easy breakup when pushed.

Price: $649.00 $519.20

#4: Breedlove Discovery Acoustic-Electric

  • Mahogany top and body
  • Mahogany neck with Soft C profile
  • Ovangkol fingerboard and bridge
  • Fishman Presys I side-mounted preamp

This concert acoustic-electric guitar has sonically superior EcoTonewood technology. Its sound is really impressive because of how similar it is to guitars with a 3X price tag. It’s well-balanced, compact, and comfortable to play with a wide tone range.

#6: Nektar Impact LX61+

  • DAW control
  • Assignable MIDI Pads, Faders, & Knobs

The LX61 is a step up from the GX61 in both price and feature. It has more comprehensive control and pad scheme with faders, encoders, and a full transport section. The synth action also provides a nice balance for users that favor faster synth response. It’s an excellent choice for your home studio or the road.
