    hi guys,
    first of all i am sorry for reposting and posting in the wrong section (after all, to err is man :) ) i am going to furtados in some days with these guitars in my mind. Please can you all give me an idea of what they sound like and which one will suit my style of playing (i.e. metal, rock and grunge with a little bit of alternative). and whether i should go for an amp with distortion or a normal one with pedal?
    thanx in advance :)

    around 15000 for the guitar and 2-3k for the amp (with distortion) or 4k for amp with pedal. not extendable as i have already requested to raised it from 10000

    Chuck the Esp and BC rich then...Go for Yamaha pacifica..Excellent guitar in 15K category..

    As for amp go with some Stranger or Kustom Sound. I know most of the guys over here dont like these ams.. But as far as i know they give u really good clean tones...Get some Boss or Digitech distortion pedal...I am using a Digitech grunge .... Its good and extremely cheap

    Yamaha Pacifica 112 series....

    I have heard some good reviews about the ESP model but seriously Yamaha is much better than any of the guitars in that price range..
    Why better...Good build quality...Good tone...Good playability...It will last more than the others.....

    Well you can try some Cort series as well....I dont remember the model..probably the one i had tried was in 20ish....Cort is also supposedly better than Esp and BC rich in lower end series....

    Check the Yamaha 012 series...Might fit in ur budget..damn i think the prices of guitars have gone up....

    I have not played on warlock..So dont know how the p'ups sound..Esp sounded good when i tried...never actually experimented with the tones. But p'ups were not bad..

    Infact lower end floyd rose trems will get ur guitar out of tune easily......Just dive bombs for 2 to 3 times and ur guitar will definitely get out of tune....
    No floyd rose under 15k budget guitar will keep ur guitar in tune...I hope u r aware of this...

    i was sayin for pacifica 012 as it has whammy and no floyd rose and i agree with u on that.

    Vintage tremolo's on these guitars are infact better than the lower end floyd roses and other lower end locking tremolos. Less hassles while tuning, beginner friendly. Sure you wont be able to divebomb like crazy but i think you can just ignore the existence of the tremolo. I hope you read my reply in the other thread, if not i recommend strongly the Epiphone SG Special Epiphone electric guitar sg special ebony, Buy & Review Epiphone products online at Furtadosonline.com as it is a nice guitar for that price range. Infact yamaha pacifica 112j is within your budget and a great guitar Yamaha electric guitar pacifica 112j black, Buy & Review Yamaha products online at Furtadosonline.com, Yamaha electric guitar rgx 121z black, Buy & Review Yamaha products online at Furtadosonline.com both are around the 15000 mark.

    greg Bennett avion AV3 is wht i'd recommend..cheaper copy of epiphone les paul standard..not pup wise, but luk wise :D

    'if its not floyd rose, it'll detune easily??!' whuut?? :facepalm: who told u this shit??! i have a prs trelmonti SE and an avion AV3, BOTH stoptail..(SHIT..i think i made TWO mistakes then!! :p so u get the point)..and dude, i dont think u understand wht delimma floyd rose presents with intonation problems if u dont know the how'z of it.. (since u say you're a beginner...dont think u do..u sound like a mislead flowerchild..no offence :))


    as for ur requests..dont think warlock is a beginner guitar..it screams metal like a *****..and ask all these gud guys here abt picking up ur first guitar..i think they'l collectively say its abt being comfortable while playing..and not abt how macho it luks like..and warlock isnt..i've done gigs with it, so i know..EC 50 is reasonably good in my opinion...can fit ur playstyle..but if u dont want an amp just yet..and wish to own a grand 1st..go for Cort EVL-Z4..EMG are buttsqueeze cool!!

    i know u wanna luk hip playing a cool looking guit, but ultimately its abt playing good..not looking good..and besides, u have to try it to know if the juice is worth the sqeeze..(lol..love this dialogue)

    tc..happy humping..err..hunting!

    go with cort x2vnfr ...with a locking tremolo...you would love it...i have the same guitar...i went to furtados last year and have tried b.c rich and esp ltd f50...they r okay okay guitars...but not great...i personally liked the esp's fretboard though...my friend bought an esp mh53...great guitar for 18k ...do check it...you may also check cort x6...even tried gregg bennets but they are not upto the mark...you can convert a soft tail into a hard tail later on...

    bro, EMG to this? i'v played viper a dozen times, and venom too, using a zoom processor...it wasnt tht appealing..maybe its just me..but as they say, to each his own! =)

    my suggestion to pranav is tht he shud'nt go for warlock..and play each and every guitar the dudes mentioned here..and choose the one tht feels right..


    -use specialis revealio every time u go to pee..
