If you’re interesting in playing or learning blues guitar, you’re probably wondering what the best electric guitars are for playing the blues. Well, to be perfectly honest, there is no single one guitar that’s absolutely, definitely a “blues” guitar. Albert Collins plays a Fender Telecaster, B.B. King plays a semi-hollowbody Gibson, Albert King played a Gibson Flying V, Stevie Ray Vaughan played a Stratocaster, Joe Bonamassa plays a Gibson Les Paul, and Robert Johnson played a Gibson L-1 acoustic.
So, there is no single “best” guitar for playing the blues.
