If you’re ever wondering why some guitars are so expensive, you might assume it’s because of the wood, finish, inlays or pickups, or possibly because the guitar is a set-neck design.

In his latest video, Phillip McKnight looks at these and various other common features found on electric guitars that might appear to be costly but are actually very inexpensive for guitar manufacturers to create or add.

The seven areas he covers are:

• Inlays
• Exotic wood tops
• Binding
• Set necks
• Pickups
• Photo finish
• Wood
