    i know there are loads of such threads asking fer help on guitar buying....but i dint find neone who wanted to play my kinda i needed a separate here's the me ppl

    Budget- Rs.8000 (i think 9000 will do too)
    REQ.- just a guitar (no amp,no process.)
    music type- everything in rock....for leading mainly....bands like metallica,iron maiden,megadeath....and death metal...( i mean to say...nething that can handle this stuff....can be played all 24 frets...etc.)

    i have been playing 11 months...dont own a guitar...will use my comp as processor and amplifier...

    theres almost no 24 fret guitrar u canbuy in 8k in india - the only thing u can even think of is the johnson imitation strat for 8k - i dont suggest it - i say u wait and save up....

    no point wasting 8k now - u might as well double or maybe triple that and then get a decent guitar that will last you for at least 5-6 good years.. maybe even more....

    How about a Keiper Les Paul copy. Made in Germany. Its about £100 = Rs. 8,300. Let me know if you want it.

    The Keiper LP is very good...wills end some pics today. I bought it 2 days ago just out of curiousity...never really gonna play time (hence I am at these and no space...the lil one takes over almost every available space. So, basically, the Keiper is available. Have a read at as well for a review. I always do that before buying anything!

    that keiper looks decent...

    no - custom guitars are usaully cheaper - were not talking about a custom made guitar from the fender custom chop or soemthing- those cost more than most of our skins are worth...

    these are lcoally made ones...

    Tulasi custom looks to be your only option now. You wont get a Floyd Rose though but you can get a decent 24 fret guitar.

    In Tulasi, the standard guitar cost is Rs.8000. You add two fret or cut down 3 frets. It remains the same. You wanted 24 frets because you wanted to solo over there and now you are asking for a 21 fret guitar. What do you want from the guitar. Dont go for too many fancy things that you dont require especially when your budget is limited.

    ok i have a 24 fret and believe me - i rarely (thats not more than once in a month) - go beyond the 21st fret - u wont need it - the frets anyways get too small from there onwards to comfortaly play...

    in 8k- this is wat i suggest - screw the floyd rse - impsosible (unless u get lucky - but its not worth it at that price range) - go for a decent lp copy or strat cpoy - ull probably look at the following guitars:

    the keiper lp cpoy - i replied to ur pm regarding this...

    tulasi copies - ronnieanand has given good reviews for this and i personally would trust his opinion

    johnson imitation strat - its quite good at 8k - ive personally used it - its the only one from this list that ive persoanlly sued - its good for the price

    other start copies - avoid

    ibanez gio - avoid\

    custom built by local luthier - make sure u ask ppl on IGT or find form others if the guy ur going to is REPUTABLE - i know ppl might say reputation isnt everything - but its probably the single easiest indicator to go by -i mean wouldnt u trudst some1 with lots of green dots in igt???
