    Electric guitar under 20k

    Hey guys,i am new here.
    I have been playing the acoustic for a few months now and want to move to an electric. I want a good guitar and amp under 20k( budget is strict). I want something versatile, decent tone, preferably with a thin neck. I'm into all kinds of rock (alternative, metal, punk etc.)
    I was looking at the the Ibanez grg150(i think it was the 150dx though), definitely had some crunch, seemed impressive at about 14k, (but would mean a cheaper amp like the 10watt ashton ga-10, which didnt sound too clean) . The fender strat was ok, but seemed way too thin and light. I'm open to other suggestions.
    As for the amp, i just want something decent for practice, with decent clean and distortion.
    As states earlier, the combo should be under 20k, and available in Delhi

    Don't o for Ibanez Gios, Javas or Jackson JS Guitars... However temptin they may seen, they are the worst of the lot. You can manage a Samick Greg Bennett AV1 and a Roland Cube 15 or a Schecter Omen 6 with a laney 10 Watt amp(not as great as the roland but still good) under 20k... They are the best deals you have.. Try to stay away from corts, their low end basswood bodies can give you grief...

    And don't go for low Marshall or Fender Frontmans... Once again, though they sound tempting, they are the worst of the lot...
    All I wanted was a gun.... And they handed me a guitar instead....


    - Samick Greg Bennett Avion AV3 modded w/ Seymour Duncan Full Shred Neck (N) and Duncan Distortion Bridge (B)
    - Blackstar HT5C
    - Boss CS3
    - Digitech Bad Monkey
    - Boss ME 70

    Not much of an expert but Cort X series are good VFM. About Basswood, i can't say how it affects tone but 3months on of daily indoor usage and no dents yet. About the FR bridge, i don't use the bar, but without it the guitar stays in tune for weeks !!. Except for some minor adjustments done through the fine-tuners i never really have to open the locking nuts. Even on the rare occasions when i have played with the bar the guitar stayed in tune. The only think that bothers me a little is that the guitar is a bit neck heavy. When playing standing up the guitar tends to get parallel to the ground.
