    Hi everyone \m/
    Im new family member in here.. :)

    I have been playing my Hobmer (box-steel string) Acoustic, for about a year..
    I listen to Metal (melodeath mostlly)-Kalmah,HSB,Insomnium,Iced Earth,Katatonia,Kataklysm...
    but have never really got a chance to play on my box guitar..( Though i have played some ,Metallica[One],Slipknot[Snuff],Breaking Benjamin..and other alternative)
    & thus an intermediate in acoustic but beginner for an electric..

    I want to now Play More METAL now.. & so i am here to Ask ur Advice(s)/Opinions/Thoughts on Elec Guitars & Amps..
    ''I read other posts which are mostly outdated (2008-2009-2010)''
    So i Would be pleased to get some new/generic Info.

    Budget (Constraint)- 12k (14-15k max)

    Used/Second Hand- Yeah! (Im cool..) [from sale on Forum]

    Names on Other Posts - Yamaha [PAC112J] ,SG, Ibanez [GRG170DX], rg321, ESP [LTD EC-50].
    (i read which may have been given by some of You guys)

    My Personal Fav. - Ibanez (plz tell me More abt Ibanez..i want to buy this..mostly)

    (First I wanted to buy Acoustic/Elec. bt after reading comments on a post i changed my mind.)
    I read the post-"Tips For Buying Electric Guitars" (very helpful)

    Shops & the (Current)prices would be very helpful.. [Im from Mumbai & have access to both Bhargava's & Furtados]
    Pls rep ASAP..(i need to buy b4 Dec.. :D )
    Thks.. \m/

    Yeah i need Amps,of course but as you see my budget...i was making a plan to buy some low cost amps n good guitar first & then later on i can make good investment in Amps..

    must say to get a good amp if ur a beginner
    saw this somewhere
    good guitar + okay amp < good amp + okay guitar

    You are right guitarplayer729 a good guitar through a crapppy amp will sound crap. Invest in a decent amp it would be benificial. And please see the other recent threads, guitars in your budget have been recommended and i'd say again stay away from any guitar in the gio series by ibanez total shit guitars. Buy a RG if you want, but they are out of your budget. Same with Esp. There has already been a healthy discussion on this in many recent threads. My recommendations:
    Epiphone SG Special
    Yamaha pacifica 112j

    And about amps get a peavey vypyr 15 and be happy, better than any other amp in that price range.

    Thks ayu135..
    Can you tell me its price.. I googled it and read somwer as $169..(thats approx Rs.8500...) ?

    then in that case i must try a combination of marshall jcm 800 with a givson electric ...wat say...hahaha...then go for a decent practice amp ...if you play live on stage...there you will be provided with speakers...though they wont be as sweet sounding as some good amplifier but still ...for a pub performance you may use a mic with a vox tube amplifier...

    i am trying not to be rude but you...
    and your are from kol right i am from kol too
    i attend mostly all the major gigs in kol and i have never till date seen a tube amp on stage
    dont give advice unless you are sure about what you are saying you can mislead a person into buying crap as it is i am pretty bummed about the low awareness regarding gear in india
    some people bum me wven more by misleading others this has to be stopped and stopped fast
    the point is dont speak something unless you are 100% sure about it

    faraz.bronx New Member

    well..bro..either you can spend on a good guitar, or a good amp and get a decent sound..15k is not enough for both..

    so..buy a roland cube, 5900/- (link given below)..or an orange crush 12L, 4700/-

    and a cort x-1 (not the first choice for anyone else but a beginner as it gets detuned with extensive bending...not recommended for extended live performances)..approx (24 jumbo frets, H-H config) price:8500/-

    or a yamaha pacifica 012 (22 frets fat strat with H-S-S config) price: 9950/- approx

    or greg bennett avion av1 (definitely not a metal guitar, but sweet nonetheless) price : 11900/- aprox

    The AV1 should be avoided in my opinion, wrong body wood, nato isnt known to be a good wood. And the peavey vypyr beats the cube hands down in terms of quality. With the vyper you wont need a new amp until you decide to play live or something as it best for practice or jamming.

    stay away from crush and av1
    save up a bit more i couldnt think of good guitars within that steep budget because there aren't any good metal guitars in that budget the only good one is pacifia 112 but it aint made for metal
