Hi Folks,

I am new here. I need your suggestions in buying a guitar. I am a complete newbie. Never handled guitar or any musical instrument before. What I am sure though is that I will go for an electric guitar, should be reasonably good quality to last long. Choice of music is hard rock/metal. Kylesa is source of inspiration. Based in Delhi. Not able to decide among the following choices (as I found on the net) in no particular order.

1. Epiphone Electric Guitar SG special
2. Yamaha, Electric Guitar Pacifica 112J
3. Fender Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar
4. Ibanez, Electric Guitar GRG170DX

Budget would be in the range of 15-20K for the guitar only. Has to be a new one (not used).

Suggestions for Amps and tuners are also appreciated.

Thanks a ton !!
