br /> MusicRadar invited its readers to name what they considered to be the finest electric guitars with a price tag of less than £300.

Squier Telecasters and Yamaha Pacificas were among the most popular instruments, while Ibanez guitars and Squier Stratocasters also received lots of votes.

However, the Dot ES-335 came on top, attracting more than a third of the total number of votes.

Commenting on the instrument, MusicRadar said: "Versatile, great-looking and more than usable for any level of guitarist, it's the best electric guitar under £300."

The website added that the proportion of votes the Dot ES-335 received - 34 per cent - was "staggering".

Electric guitar players might enjoy this model because it is a more affordable version of the Gibson ES-335 - the instrument favoured by artists including BB King and Chuck Berry.
