    Please suggest me a better guitar if you know of one

    3. Playability
    4. good looks
    5. Remaining in tune (if at all possible)
    Please also tell me what amp n processor i should get!

    Sorry but there is nothing great that u will find in the range of 16000. So irrespective of genres i wud stick to Yamaha Pacifica along with a good AMP and pedals.

    I concur with both - the pacifica and the cort x6. But I own a GRG170DX, it's a pretty decent guitar for the price and versaile as well (I play blues on it). I'm not sure if buying a Fender makes sense if it's not an American strat or the least a MiM strat. I'm not sure about the model# but there a couple of good Washburns in the market in that range which are great or your genre of playing.
    I owned a Roland Cube 15XL for almost a year and it's a great amp for beginners. Has got good cleans and 4 different modellings for overdrive and metal playing. I suggest play it out at a store and pick up what you connect with...
