    hi, In many post in this forum i read "givson sucks" is it true?

    i want to learn play guitar first and after i learn much then i will purchase a high-fy coastly guitar but for begining i want a satisfactory cheap guitar.
    please remember when you answer that i am an col. student and not going to ask my parents to pay for my guitar [:D] i am going to purchase it from a little scollership money.

    So please help me........ i watched some givson electric model upto 5000 rs. should i choose from this.

    hi demetron,

    Welcome to the forum! :) . How you doing?

    I am a guitar noob like you and I bought myself a Givson Acoustic, (Crown Special).It's like 2500 something, and to be really honest, I like it !! (noobs like me don't have many choice :-<)

    Anyways, I would recommend you to buy a Givson for a start, gradually you can graduate to a yamaha or a G&B or even a Gibson with a B .

    Take care brother, ;-)
    Keep smiling

    woah woah woah bro.......when u can go for a pluto or a granada in this range why go for a giVson??????? dey are atleast 10 times bttr dan giVson....

    when u are gonna buy a giVson u r gonna be in luv wid it till u play a different guitar...den u will realize how crass and cacophonic giVson actually sounds........this comes from my personal experience and dere must be thousands lyk me..........so its bttr to go for a pluto or a granada acoustic right now.......den graduate to an electric once u have learned how to play da acoustic thoroughly.........

    Hey Dude!
    First of all clear that which type of guitar you want, Acoustic or electric.

    if you want electric, For beginner i think J&D is a good brand for start.

    but if you want acoustic there are lots of brands suitable for a newbie.

    I have recently bought a J&D Electric guitar with 2 single coil and one humbucker pickup, it's a nice guitar.

    But how much can you spend on a guitar? and where do you live.

    well i can only spend upto 5k (only for guitar excluding amp) this time. I am interested for the electric but in lots of post here, i read buying Acoustic is better for beginners.
    is there any good electric guitar upto 5000. and how much your J&D cost you can you please send a pic of it.

    one more thing i wanna know is can we learn to electric guitar first without a processor , i mean i thought to buy only a guitar and amp first.

    Look bro, I am too a beginner. Honestly 1yr ago i bought an acoustic guitar at that time i was not knowing how to fret a note. then i returned to the shop after keeping 2 days with me. Now two weeks ago i bought a J&D electric guitar with 4 pickups (2 single coil & 1 humbucker) I learned how to play guitar from net.

    In your post you said that you are interested in electric guitar, So i think you should buy an electric guitar. [some body advised me that buying a guitar depends upon which type of sound you are looking for]

    I think that J&D will be a good Brand to start with. Once you will master it, you can also go for a Gibson les paul or Fender stratocaster there are so many guitars in world.

    Yeah sure, why not i will attach the pic of my guitar with this post.

    One more thing i also asked this before "WHERE DO YOU LIVE". If you live in Mumbai/India I can help you for buying a guitar for 4500 rs only. and if you wish you can get a branded GIBSON les paul guitar in 13,000 Rs.

    Do you believe that even i am not having an AMP for my guitar. yes it is not important to get a processor first, you can buy an amp (if you live in mumbai you can get branded Marshal amp for Rs.3500/)

    I plug my guitar in my Pc.

    (an advise: If you think that you cannot afford a guitar and amp there is one more option you can get a cable "Guitar to pc" from any electronic shop. you can also download an amp sim in you pc and play it like an amp, you can also get fender amplitube software)

    Wait i will post my guitar pic.

    Oh, i thought that if you will be living in mumbai, i will take you to some guitar shops and you can get a guitar on low price, even if you want a Gibson Les paul.
    Dont worry search all guitar shops nearby. you can also log on to: www.jandd-guitars.com or if you can buy a guitar online log on to: www.musiciansfriend.com.

    and i have bought my guitar for Rs.5000/- and i have asked for amp brand marshal for Rs.3500/-

    if you want to know anything about guitar, post it on this thread or email me: jimluthra@usa.com
