guys.... i'm a newbie out here in the forum... I'm an intermediate level guitar player and i own a very cheap unbranded 15$ acoustic guitar on which i learnt......but trust me,it sounds pretty nice, its easy to play and has it been 2 years but still in good condition.... nw i'm planning to upgrade.... i want a good beginner level electric guitar, i done some research and zeroed in on the following models.... 1.CORT X-1 or X-2 2.Yamaha Pacifica PAC012 3.Aria STGG004 4.Washburn X10 5.Fender Squier California Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar 6.Java EG-70 Fat Strat Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose Tremolo 7. Ibanez GRX-20 Electric Guitar 8. Squier Mini Stratocaster Electric Guitar I play mostly rock, very little metal....but i want2 get a nice clean output sound from my guitar for occasional chord strumming... I have a personal liking to the yamaha pacifica cuz of its H-S-S config and i have a yamaha showroom next to my house...... and the CORT X-1 or X-2 cuz of its extremely catchy and stylish design but it has an H-H config but i don't know how it sounds... Guys and gals, which ones do u recommend????? plz help and any other models u recommend???
