What are the best makes and models of electric guitars for playing barre chords?


Usually the tension of the strings on electric guitars is much looser than on acoustics and playing barre chords on electrics is not as troublesome for a beginner.

I own two electrics - Les Paul Epiphone Std Plus and Flight guitar that I do not see in stores these days, it's similar to Ibanez GRX20Z but has 24 frets.

The Flight guitar has narrower and handy neck that easier to grasp, making playing barre chords effortless; although it doesn't necessarily mean that it'd be the same for you.

The best way to figure out which guitar is right specifically for you is, in my opinion, to go to a non-online, physical music store, put your hands on different types and brands of electric guitars and make your choice according to your feelings.

Good Luck!
