    Hi guys...

    I am once again in a problem..

    I have narrowed down 2 electric guitars and both have nearly the same price. i have mentioned their + points as far as i know:

    1. Ibanez GRX-20
    + Light-weight
    + Dual humbucking pickups
    + Standard tremolo

    2. Washburn X10
    + 5-way switch
    + 24 fret Rosewood Fingerboard
    + Designed for serious players
    + one humbucker and two single coil pickups with one volume and one tone knob

    check them out at www.bajaao.com (does this site belong to bhargavas in mumbai? if yes will i get the guitars at the same prices as mentioned in this site if i buy it from bhargavas (by coming to mumbai)?)

    so which one do you think i should go for??

    CHECK OUT THEIR REVIEWS AT:

    AND

    http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/reviews/electric_guitars/washburn/x10/index.html

    also i was going to buy the effect processor zoom G2.1U before. Actually an uncle of mine from US was about to bring it, but cant because the shipping is taking is a lot of time. so i have decided to buy Zoom G2 instead because it is cheap in India. also i didnt find much difference between the 2 effect processors. i mean is the pedal and usb connection that important? also can i pitch-bend sing the handle in the guitar?

    i also have another question. can i practice my electric guitar by connecting it to my computer instead of using an amplifier?

    please answer all the questions... i need the answers badly. thanks for the time.

    Well you would have done well to search, but since I'm have a couple of minutes:

    a) Play the guitars and see which one suits you. Both guitars are pretty different, and every guitar is made differently, so you may or may not find either of them comfortable to play.
    b) What's with the "designed for serious players" crap?
    c) I'd say if it absolutely had to be between these 2 guitars then the Washburn would be better.
    d) The G2.1u has an expression pedal, sampler, drum machine. The expression pedal will be useful as a wah, volume pedal (maybe not, actually) and sometimes as a whammy. You can pitch bend using the "handle" in the guitar (remember that one post alpha1? about the various uses of this handle?) but if the tremolo is what I think it is then you wouldn't really be doing any dive bombs with it.
    e) You can but you won't hear much unless you use some form of pre-amplifier (like your pedal) between the guitar and computer.

    iave played my friends X-11 many times and its good for blues and soft mellow stuff......i dunno about the X-10, washburn is a good company and its starting range is much better than Ibanez's.............

    yea Java is okay if you have a tight price constraint, or else fender or washburn are also good starter companies, even yamaha.

    I would always lobby for the Squier California Strat in that price range.
