Help in buying first electric guitar!!
Hey guys, have been playing an acoustic givson for over 5 years. decided to go for an electric. My budget is Rs.30,000 including amp and effects.
I'm interested in the fender standard strat (not squier) but think its too expensive (still not sure of the price).I have done some research and like the following stuff:
Ibanez RG series
Dean Vendetta 1.0
Roland Cube 15x
Marshall MG10 CD
Digitech Distortion factory
Digitech Death Metal
yeah Ibanez is a great deal man ! try the GRG 170dx its for around Rs.12000 ( fixed bridge) or else if u want something a lil higher than go for a GRG270 with a floating bridge. Roland Cube 15 is any day better than a marshall ! Roland comes with built in effects of 4-5 types. However, u can save on cash by buying a cheaper amp such as BETA AIVIN, its cheaper n good !
don't waste much money on buying costly effects rite nw ! u'll take tym to adapt to ur guitar n also the effect processor. Boss mt-2 is a great deal ! awseome crunch to it. or try goin in for a KORG AX 5g. Digitech is good but the sound get cracked on stage. it ain't dat good on a PAS. deres nothin lik a pedal. Keep buyin pedals n later make ur own stomp BOX ! \m/
Fender strat is way outta range. ESP can be a really good guitar though if u can take care of it. No use buying a squire coz its worthless here. If u wanna play heavy stuff IBANEZ n ESP r the best guitars u can get in that budget.
hey, what's the cheapest in the RG series? And what's the price? I'll probably be buying my guitar at Soundglitz, B'lore.
What do you think of this combination?:
Ibanez RG 250EX
Roland Cube 15x
Boss DS 1
P.S I wanna play rock, not metal
i think RG370DX will fit ur budget as well..and maybe RG350DX as well..heard they're good..i donno bout 250EX..
does it even exists? i guess its 350EX u're talking bout...
if u r in india .....then u should buy yamaha guitar.....coz..the wood is great it does no shrinks.......but in fender it chrinks a lttle bit
Sorry man, meant to say the RG 350EX. How about the RG 321MH? are they even on sale? If so, what's the cost?
personally, I don't like yamaha guitars. i think they're only good at manufacturing pianos (and bikes!). The only companies i'm looking at are Fender, Ibanez, ESP, Dean and Jackson.
Ok...so i've decided on the Roland Cube 15x. still can't decide on the guitar and effects pedal.
any more suggestions?
about the pedal, i'm really baffled! the cheapest ones only offer one effect (like only distortion or delay). i really want to get one with multiple effects. but, i'll probably use only distortion and delay.
Ibanez RGR321EX is the upgraded version of 321MH.. 321 MH is a gr8 guitar.. 321EX has EMG passives.. it fits ur budget as well..
As of now try to manage with ur amp only for effects..thats wat my opinion is..later on u can buy a decent pedal as per ur style
ibanez is a good choice...definitely...even i have one...grg170dx.....but u know wat...there is a company called HMI...its an indian company only exports guitars....although some stores in delhi and maybe in mumbai have started keeping them...u wont believe a V or X guitar costs around 9K in this brand...only!!! and they are quite cool ..i have tried one or two f dem....
and as of amp...i have experienced some problems with roland 15x......prolonged use leads to a buzzing sound and bad feedback.....VOX is a much better choice if u wanna play ROCK NOT METAL.....
does anybody know where to get a new Ibanez RG 321MH or EX in Bangalore? which shop?
list of shops can be found on this thread:
Guitars in bangalore
Thanks to Distorted
ok.. new twist. can't decide between Roland Cube 15x and Roland Microcube
and manku911...or whatever your name is....vox is too expensive
Micro cube is a 2W amp. It has nice built in effects and is pretty good for bedroom practise.. but in case u're playin with drums then its no good.. as the sound will be very low..
Cube 15x being a 15W amp is much powerful than microcube..it has 4 built in effects..
