    Hey guys, i need to buy a reaaaaaly cheap electric, somethin like 4-5k, which shd hve tone more than anything. looks i dont care much about. Can i get one from tulsi or any other custom shop?
    It shd not have a floyd rose cos 1)i already have a yamaha with one and 2)im gonna frequently detune it.
    btw im frm bangalore

    Tulsi is out of question.
    His cheapest would come to Rs8000.

    @Sendhil....Thanks dude....How did you recognize me...'cos nobody calls me Ronnie there... Which band did you play for....

    Anyway I got my guitar for Rs.8700. It's a Tulasi made one. I changed the pickups to DiMarzio PAF Pro on the neck and DiMarzio Norton on the Bridge..Plus also changed the Pots to CTS Pots...Of late there are more mods on my guitar with a mini toggle switch for Coil Tap and another mini toggle switch for Pickup On-Off....Totally the guitar would have cost me about Rs.17000 for so..But the basic guitar with the stock pickups should be available for about Rs.9000. If you want a strat model, it should be cheaper than that...

    J&D would cost u very less ... around 5 k i would presume .... there is a place called world of music ..... right beside empire hotel .on the entry point of residency road ....... there are 2 shops opp to each other .... they share huge rivalry ... hence get the price from one & go to the other they'll surely reduce their prices

    also u can get a SAMICK LS if u can pay 8k ... not bad for the deal

    Dude, sorry to say this but...for 5K no one gets a guitar with Floyd Rose!!! Save some more cash or let go of the floyd rose fancy!!

    ^ You are right you wont get a guitar with a floyd for 5K. BUT He aint looking for a guitar with a floyd. Infact he said he does not want floyd as he wants to detune it frequently.

    hey i know you are calling him jayanth ;)

    but I seriously want to know how to go to tulsi pls.
    and iraqita says aria stg-03 is present for 6.5 bucks.
    In bangalore/Chennai, which are all the shops i can see/play that guitar?

    http://www.ariausa.com/series/stg003/stg003.html << Is this the same guitar what iraquita is talking or an indian replica of it?

    thanks!
