    well i have been playing acoustic guitar for last 2 years,so i m not a very beginner kind, thinking of switching myself to an electric version.

    i have heard names of companies like jackson, ibanez, cort, esp,,greg bennet and many more . all these companies have many different series of guitars which is making it even harder for me to decide which one is actually my kind.

    i basically wanna play rock and metal, even some clean blues wont be bad somtimes. I m more of a rhythm player. Bands like skillet, Breaking Benjamin, daughtry, evanascence,linkin park(every ones fav), bullet for my valentin, nirvana etc etc r of my taste. well list is quite long, hoping that these names will help u to guide me in buying my electric guitar.

    my budget is 20k(cant extend it any more)

    thank u

    (sory if it irritated u because of its length)

    The people posting so far have given good advice, but just to spare their breath and to show you what options you have, I suggest you read the IGT gear guide -> Part 1 Part 2

    Try all the guitars in your budget, if available... You never know what you'll like...
    Also, by the time you're done ruling out the guitars which don't have the style (les paul/strat/SG/tele etc) you want, the bridge you want, the pickups you want, the wood you want, the tone you want, the looks you want... Well, you're left with very few guitars to choose from. So don't start off by picking a single particular company to buy from... Try what's available at your budget, then bring it down to a short list of guitars which you like and then choose among them.

    yea..first decide what kind of pickups you want..immediately you'l be able to shortlist a few guitars..if you wanna buy Ibanez, go for the 'grg' series..i just bought an ESP a couple of months back n i love it!..
    if there is a branch of Furtados in your city,jus walk in n take every guitar in your hand, play it n decide on the me..nothin helps more than actually playin the guitars n checkin them out!..
    all the best.. :)

    The reason I didn't respond is I don't think he really read the Guide (going to bajaao and doing a search is easier, I guess)

    @OP - Read the relevant links (hint - for you, 'Electric guitar choosing guide') in the Guide.* Recommended models are right there too, if you care to see.

    *I'm deliberately not posting them here because that's why we compiled the Guide - so as not to keep posting those links and that info over and over again, for every newbie - the stuff written there has been that useful.

    No major difference I guess. This has been discussed before. Search the gear talk forum.
