    ok friends please help me with this .

    I am surly going to take my first guitar.
    now first question is how to get hold of
    a decent guitar.

    as of my first guitar the sole purpose will
    be to learn guitar.

    so any one can suggest few of their guitar
    choices for me.
    my budget will of around 4000rs. not more.

    please do post about semi-acoustic guitars also

    if i can afford one.

    if ur a beginner, go for an Acoustic, preferably a Jumbo,,,coz it has a nice full sound........for acoustic i usually dont go by brand suggest u better take sum1 wit u.....try not 2 go 4 semi acoustics coz in that range u wont get a good guitar with good pickups......better go 4 a Jumbo

    ^^if u are a beginner go for a yamaha semi elec. for 6600.........i guess its model no. is F-310........

    @aeolian : raise your budget to about 5k and you can gt a GB&A semi elec........or you can go in for a Pluto or a Granada......( do NOT buy a GiVson if your budget is as high as 4000)


    1) B C Rich Draco
    2) Korg Ax3000g
    3) Mesa Boogie amp
    4) Marshall Haze full stack
    5) Dunlop Crybaby

    in the gaps of reality
    im going to be a**** and be straight up...
    these days the best guitars to learn on are called fretlite (fretlight).
    they light up under the fret board to show you where to put your fingers.
    the dudes i know who have them make me feel like an amiture and ive been playing a good decade longer than they have...
    you cant afford one i bet but honestly if your pc can handle the software to run it...
    give yourself the gift of a decent guitar and a tutor...
    get fretlight
    play till your fingers bleed and then you have only just started your warm up...
    rock on

    soreng quotes :
    .....better go 4 a Jumbo

    @soreng : More Jargons makes me fishy about buying any particular
    Guitar. can you pick your Favorites from granada or pluto?

    @angel_of_sin : As I posted earlier I cant go more than 4000.
    hence moving to think about granada or pluto.any favorites?

    @SqueakM9 : Fretlight ...IN TO THE FUTURE

    Behind enemy lines..
    I bought my Granada Two days back and I love it.. had a distinctively different sound than the pluto.. But in the end I guess it all boils down to what do you like to play..

    My advice is to go down to the showroom, have a feel of both and then decide, you might also want to take someone who knows how to play..

    in the gaps of reality
    that i fully agree with...
    just like in harry potter...
    the wand chooses the wizard
    the guitar chooses the player...
    like for me,
    i hated teles and i hated les pauls, i was all for odd shapes and metal guitars,
    but the two guitars i hated most are the ones i play and sware by,
    and yes i do still have my B C Rich Beast and my Vester (very decent and cheap) strat copy (no longer on the market)

    Whtever u play in future its always good to have a good acoustic guitar ....
    So If you have about 4k .. go for a GB&A jumbo ...... then you can spend more for ur nxt guitar ...

    Instead of asking here.... try to take someone who knows about guitars along with you.... He will be able to check the guitar on spot...
