    I am planing to buy new E. Guitar. But can't figure out which one. So please guide me to the right one. Which facilities should be I looking for in it (Eg. Tremelo, co4s, Switches. etc.). My price range is Rs.12000 for guitar only. And for effect processor and amp. are extra. I want it for playing in home and between friends. Also help me in buying effect processor, as I want to play rock and pop, both type of songs ( Eg. Smeels Lik Teen Spirit - Nirvana, My Sacrifise - Creed, Sultans of Swing - Dire straits etc.) but can't figure out effect processor to play sonds like these.

    SO HELPpppppppppppppppppppppppp :help: .

    haha get anything which ur budget allows and which satisfies some of ur needs cos there aint no ultimate guitar ...i said so before....

    maybe we should make a sticky thread regarding this buying stuff with more emphasis on guitars which r suited for metal and hard rock...rabi has done it for fenders!

    Thx for replys. Yeah I live in india and my uncle lives in US but there is a rare possibility that I will buy from there. So I am buying it from india. I live in Ranchi, Jharkhand and I don't think that here is any provision for custom guitar. Many dealers keep Givson and Hobner guitars. Few also keep Fender and Ibanaze but they say to order first. So thats the problem. They show me givson 'G.S. 1000' and Givson 'Lead 2' models and told me these are mostly sold there and have good reps. in Ranchi. Tell me your thoghts on that model please. And for mybuget for effect processor, it is Rs. 6500.

    I was in kolkota 2 months before but at that time, there was no plan to buy a guitar. I think I will be going there in few months or may be not. So if u can put any link and model number which u think realy kool will help a lot. Please put link where I can see picture as well as its features. That will help a lot.Also I am getting 707 II in Rs. 7500 and now I think its good deal.

    Thanks Lifty.

    i know people hate givson here but i have played GS1000 but u cant get better for "5k".its action is low and tone is ok if played through a marshall mg and with a good set of strings.
    But for 12k u should definately go for fenders (although chinese but better than indian ones)

    effects :digitech rp80-6800rs (as quoted on bharat's website..u can negotiate a bit)dunno abt kolkata prices

    I checked J&D guitar recently. It was 6K and it was amazing for it's price. This was a USA made guitar. Givson sucks in front of it. I'd prefer spending another 1K more and get a J&D. Or dude, spend 8.5K and get a GB&a. I'd suggest this over Tulasi guitars as others adviced. I am a Tulasi guitar user and I know it's plus and minus better than other guys whose ideas about it are from word of mouth.

    Hey the best option I have seen in 20 years of playing guitar is the Yamaha Pacifica. It has been voted the best factory. made guitar ( as opposed to hand made custom jobs). Its got top class workmanship and parts and sounds killer for the sounds of the bands you mentioned.

    If its practice you want not stage then I sugegst the Roland micro cube at approx. 7K it offers amazing sounds -even COSM amp. modeling technology, effects like phaser, flanger, delay, reverb, distortions and overdrives right up to heavy rectifier amp sounds for deep distortion and tremolo all in one bundle and a great combo amp runs even on batteries!!!! amazing. The sound is unbeatable and is enough to jam with friends and even loud enough with a live drummer in session. Its clean s a whistle even with loud distortion - something that cheaper processors cannot boast about.

    Thats my bet and all at a price you can afford.
