    i've never played the guitar before in my life. right now, i know the basics and the theory. i plan on going for lessons next month. i'm not into classical at all so i guess i'll go for an electrical guitar. i'd rather prefer a guitar pack than just the guitar. my budget is upto rs.10000. so, any ideas? also i don't plan on taking this as a career or for playing in a band, just for personal entertainment.

    I'd reccomend starting off on an acoustic. Halve your budget and buy a semi-decent acoustic. If you get hooked, invest some more money and buy an electric and an amp.

    ESP starter pack on, however the guitars in beginners pack wouldnt be that good. Try n increase the amount u r ready to shell out...
    I too feel u should start of with an acoustic. My guitar tutor said its easier to play electric guitars, smaller body thinner fret and less action. But once you learn with a good old acoustic and ur fingers are set, u can go for electric.
    And there are other things too, what kinda music u play and what if you loose interest and all...

    On this budget, u'll get sum very poor quality indian makes, search fr sum chinese made stuff, dey will be the best piks, i wont suggest the starter pack anyhow, d guitar sucks n the amp too... N if u r playing an electric, u'll need a processor sooner or later, odrws wts the fun of having an electric?

    ^dude he is asking fr a complete package in 10k... Vaise i suppose, getting secondhands is the best option... U'll atlst get a bit better quality odrws wrapping in such a small budget is impossible.
