    i have been playing the acoustic guitar for 1 and a half years now. I think it's time for me to "upgrade" to a an electric guitar. I know how to play open and barre chords, scales and modes and the works.

    I want to buy an electric guitar with a distortion unit and an amp. I have a budget of about 30-40K.

    What kind of setup would u guys recommend?

    I intend to play rock, metal and some blues.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok ok.. What we have here is a good question.. see since you are into metal ,rock and stuff.. Go for an Ibanez Rg270Dx- Price - 15-550(Ex-bangalore) And a GT6Price - 16-000(Ex-Bangalore)and A Stranger 80 Cube Price 7500(Ex-Bangalore) Gives You a grand total 39,050 Rs.. Which is exactly your budget. He he :)

    By God I Swear that this is the best setup.. Check out your music stores for these stuff..
    Where are you from??

    thanks for your advice Jayanth. Im from pune so probably i can get all my stuff from Furtados?

    Personally i really dont like Ibanez guitars because they look crappy. I know that sounds stupid but that's the way it is. I was wondering about getting a mexican strat instead (gonna cost be bout 25k) then i can go in for a cheap processor and an ok practice amp?

    I really think that buying a good guitar is important, u can get rest of the stuff later.

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    Try and get a B.C.Rich Warlock. I have that guitar and it's a damned beautiful instrument. Too bad the amp I use with it is a pathetic 10-watt Marshall amp alongwith a Peavey foot-pedal. I usually like playing down-tuned guitars and this one plays like a dream.

    Warlock is Amazing.. But for its Action.. YOu dont have much options of setup.. I can playaround with the action of my jackson.. The only reason i didnt buy the Warlock..

    if you are playing Rock and Blues then get a Fender

    however if you want to play Metal as well then you can try a Gibson

    I don't want to comment on BC Rich's, Ibanez, Jackson or any other make that has been specified as I have not really used them to a great extend.

    However having said that the Ibanez might suit your wants as it is a guitar better based for metal.

    Jackson as far as my guitar goes is Amazing .. I tried nearly 20 guitars befoer i choose this.. I took nearly a month and a half for testing getting the right sound and stuff..
