    Almost all of epiphones are made in Asia (probably Korea).
    There are some high end models called "elite", but they are quite expensive.

    if ur goin for branded cheap ones, then u can try cramer. u get cheap
    ones hear in chennai and if ur goin for custom made ones, then i think
    tulsi from chennai is the best. i even started a thread askin abt tulsi in
    this forum. u can check that out too. the title is buyin flyin v form tulsi.
    hes the best i reckon. and u can even get a flyin v for 10k. but i suggest
    u go for a normal shape one as u gotta begin from the start. the normal
    ones will cost 5-6k. and the tone is also really good.

    ^^dude yaar, thats kramers and their striker n voyeger cost the hell outta our dad's purse!

    @ankit - electic for beginners :: yamaha pacifica, ibanez grx series, givson diamond series!
    read their reviews first....take yamaha n ibanez into consideration...they are best begginer electrics around for a economic price and they rock!

    Yamaha Pacifica is really good. GB&a, J&D are some cheap Korean brands but the guitar is surprisingly good for it's cost. Dont get Givsons even if you get it for free. Sevre Crap :mad: .

    Kramers are pretty neat. Even Washburn guitars are good. Even Epiphones are pretty nice. All of these are either made in Korea or China. Low end Ibanez is a joke.

    i didnt know that. i thought kramers were considerably
    cheap. but ibanez starts with 11k if i'm not mistaken.
    thats ibanez gio i think. my band uses that guitar. thats
    pretty good. has a good tone too.
