    HI i'm from australia nd i suggest that you don't get any massive discount packs because they always have dodgy parts in them. Buy everything separately. I suggest you have a look on ebay. They have some decent stuff tehre.

    Hey bro from ur post it seems as though u have a budget of atmost 12k.
    Y dont u go in for a Samick LJS-35 Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose (Rs.10k on bajao.com) or a Washburn X10 Electric Guitar (Rs.10700 on bajao.com ) and then go in for a stanger amp that will cost you around 3k more at the most.(Go for a stranger cube20) as it would fit your budget too.
    This will the most optimised deal i can suggest.
    And beware , neva go for combo packs..they are jus bullsh**
