    Hi All,

    I am looking at buying a new/second-hand electric guitar. The budget is Rs.15000 at max. I am new to Bangalore, so can someone please tell me where I can check out some good guitars...both new and used?

    Also, I play mostly classic rock stuff and prefer the strat's clean tone, can you suggest some guitars which fall in my budget?

    Hi,
    There aren't many places in Bangalore for guitars. Anyways you can check out Reynolds Inc. at the Brigade Road / Richmond Road junction, Aruna Musicals in Basavanagudi, Rhythm Musicals is Residency Road (very close to Brigade Road). There aren't any specific 2nd hand guitar dealers.

    Hey thanx...Will check the places out...

    I have heard of Reynolds...its a famous joint...but I have also heard that they are unecessarily expensive...true?

    I have been out of the Indian guitar scene for a while. What kinda guitar can I hope to get with my budget? I wouldn't mind picking up a Squier or a Samick. How are the Indian makes? heard a lot about Tansen.

    Hi,
    You can check out Comet, Samick, GB&a which would cost you less than 10K and are Korean make gutiars. I personally use a GB&a and it rocks. It'd cost you around 8K. Tansen is pretty decent and the price ranges from 7K to 18K. Pretty decent ones but the quality is not consistent across various batches. You can also get low end Squier, Epiphone, Yamaha, Ibanez, Kramer in your budget.
    Reynolds is slightly expensive but the quality is assured. At least he doesn't rip you off like Aruna musicals.

    Another option is to check out custom made guitars from Tulasi Musicals, Chennai. You can check out the thread Custom Guitars to see other's opinions and experiences on Tulasi custom guitars.

    Hey,

    So I finally bought an Ibanez G10. That with a Cube 20 cost me 14.5 K...good buy?

    I liked the tone and the feel of the guitar. I wanna know if any of you own or have owned one? How is it in terms of reliablility? Have you faced any issues with it or do you have some advice on maintenance?

    Thanx!

    Either that, or yazi has something against Tulsi or me. :boxed:
