Alright, so I've been doing some research and this is going to be a long post so brace yourselves.
I have been playing my Yamaha Acoustic F310 for a year an half now and I really want to move on to an electric. I love the sound of blues and i'll probably train myself to be a blues guitarist, But I love all kinds of good music and would like to be able to play stuff like metallica, AC/DC, classic rock, good ol' country rock... and even Justin Biber.... *long silence*....not really, Justin Biber sucks c**k.
Now that we've got the pleasantries out of the way, I have to tell you that I have read about the following guitars and almost all of them are available in India and I think are priced below 20K. Let me list them down for ya:
ESP EC-100QM - available for around 19.5K - Ultimate guitar review rating 8.8
ESP MH-50 - Not sure of the price - Ultimate guitar review rating 9.3
ESP EC-50 - Not sure of the price - Ultimate guitar review rating 8.5
Yamahha Pacifica 112V - unfortunately 33K from ebay (very nice seller though, all new pieces and directly imported) - Ultimate guitar tabs review rating 8.6
Cort EVL-Z4 - 19K - no review on Ultimate Guitar
Cort EVL-Z6 - couldn't find the the price - Ultimate guitar review rating 9
Cort CR200 - 17.5K - no review on Ultimate Guitar
Cort X6 - (not sure, I found X5 at 13K) - Ultimate guitar review rating 8.3
Greg Bennett AV3 - 16K - Ultimate guitar review rating 8.8
Greg Bennett AV6 - couldn't find price - couldn't find rating
Ibanez GRG 170DX - 16K - Ultimate guitar review rating 8.6
Ibanez GRGA 42TQ - Couldn't ind price - Ultimate guitar review rating 8
Ibanez GRG 250DX - 19.5K - Ultimate guitar review rating 9.2
I haven't played any of these but I tried a greg bennett Av1 and i liked it so I thought an AV6 would kick ass.
I'll probably get a Roland micro cube for starting out coz', I play only at home.
I love the les paul style, so right now I am rooting for the AV3 or AV6 or the EVL z4 and I think it'll suit me. But a Strat style is also real if its full of awesomeness.
So now the questions:
1. Which among the above guitars do you suggest for the kind of music that I mentioned.
2. Is there some good guitar that I missed out and should check out? My budget is 18K just for the guitar.
3. Suggest me a shop where I can get most of these models (and one that will not get infuriated by my questioning and pestering). I am in Mumbai. (yes I know of furtardos and bhargavas, anything else maybe?)
4. Can you help me with the price of the guitars for which I couldn't find a price?
5. If I gave you 20K which guitar will you buy?
finally a bonus question...
6. which colour undies are you wearing?
