    You need to be more specific. The guitar matters very less (But it still plays a major part) compared to the amp for getting some sound. You sure as hell wont be playing an electric unamplified. What kinda music are you into? What effects do you want with it? Answer those questions, and maybe then I can help you.

    Givson's are in one word: TERRIBLE. Save your money and get a cheap Ibanez GRG for 10k. Get a cheap Laney or Marshall if you're into Rock/Metal. If you're one of those pop guys, I have nothing to say to you.

    don't do that

    Don't go for the Givson. Put in another maybe 500 and get a J&D or a GB&A, with a nice working tremolo and maple neck etc. Will serve you much better than the Givson.

    Ibanez GSR390 Bass guitar (might sell if i get a price)
    Laney RB30 Bass amp (might sell if i get a price)

    Look into the GB&A or J&D brothers strat/fat strat.They will be in the 6-8K range.Save up, and you wont regret it.
    And once you realize how bad a guitar to PC sounds, you can save up for a Marshall MG15CD for about 4.5K.

    ppl are right, its absolutely not a wise decision to buy a givson....gba, tansen are way above the givsons...give them a try...and you might want to save some more and go for a marshall...the pc wont serve your purpose..
