    Go for Ibanez, it was my 1st guitar.

    It has very thin and fast neck, you can set action to ultra low with any problems, picks are decent and it looks good too.

    1. Floating bridges have tune stability issues. Also hard to tune and in general a headache if you don't know what you're doing. Generally not recommended for a beginner unless you want to perform tremolo tricks.

    2. The 12k guitar is an oft discussed topic here at IGT.

    My recommendation: Buy either a Yamaha Pacifica 012 (HSS) or Greg Bennett Avion AV1/AV3 (HH).

    If open to used, here are some good deals on IGT recently. Depends on your city:

    Delhi: Greg Bennett Avion AV1 + 2 year warranty

    Bangalore: Ibanez SA220FM

    Hyderabad: Ibanez RG370DX

    You actually linked to guitars for sale in various cities. This forum might need to wipe a collective tear from its eye.

    ^Lulz... On a forum as slow as IGT, even selling something good at a bargain price is an uphill task.

    I think that even if I was selling Paul Mccartney's vintage guitar for 5000 rupees, I still wouldn't find buyers unless I reposted a bazillion times.
