    Hi guys, I'm new to IGT.... I've been playing acoustic guitar for the past one year and intend to buy an electric one, which I'd like to begin with.... After doing a thorough research on the internet, i narrowed down to these choices:

    1) Ibanez GRG 170 DX
    2) Ibanez GRG 150
    3) Gregg Bennet Avion AV1
    4) BC Rich Warlock Platinum
    6) Fender Squier Bullet Stratocaster

    i would like a versatile guitar which can play all sorts of music ranging from Pop rock, Punk Rock to Death Metal, or atleast suit good to these genres with the combination of amps/processors.... My budget is within 15k... Any other GOOD guitars within the range are welcome for consideration


    I know nothing about them, their features and so on.... My budget is within 8k... The amp needs to have basic effects like vibrato, reverb and mild distortion....... Though i'm considering the following, i need more suggestions from you guys
    1) Roland Cube 20X
    2) Stranger Cube 40
    3) Stranger Cube 80

    Please don't suggest anything below 20W

    this again i have no knowledge of... Suggest me so real good processors/effect pedals worth spending Rs.5000..... Needs to have WAH WAH and distortion....

    I live in Calcutta and hence need some suggestions for good guitar/music stores which have a wide range of guitars , amps and so on from variety of brands so i can find the best of the best things at my budget....

    no i would like to start off by my own.... I don't practice with a band..... And i want an amp above 20W since i've heard that anything below it sounds puns and the reverb and distortion is not that prominent..... Help me out man....

    I doubt there is any pedal with both distortion and wah wah anywhere near 5K.

    Only one processor with both Wah Wah and Distortion - Zoom G1XN (the Zoom G1 has wah wah but no pedal, that comes separate).

    8k and Vibrato? Doubt any >20W decent amp in that price range has it. You can check out the Laney Prism P20 20W, its a good amp under 8K but i doubt it has anything close to vibrato/pitch shifter.

    BTW if you are going to buy a processor, you would have those effects (delay/reverb/chorus/whatever) options on it, so IMO go for a good amp (bigger speakers, good brand and better wattage) without those effects. A good amp without any effects is way better than an average amp with lots of effects.
