    he doesnt necessarily have to get a bronze series though. the platinums and the others are quite nice.
    I'd actually recomend an ibanez or a washburn x-series though. they arent that heavy and they play well and they dont limit you in the future. B.C.Rich and epiphone les pauls are equally nice, but they're quite heavy.

    heavy is good...thicker denser wood...more sustain....

    true, but lighter is easier to begin with and to gig with. plus ibanez don't really use crap woods so you still get nice sound.

    But its preference I guess. I really do like weighty guitars myself. Makes you feel like you got a monster in your hands.

    @michael, I'd actually recomend getting the guitar from here first to see which one you like better. You can get the ones your looking for in India

    I have some folks in Dubai, but they're kinda guitar-dumb. Do you think you can get a sort of a price list or something from some of the shops there?

    @DagMx : Ibanez uses basswood which is pretty crappy for anything else other than metal....

    Oh why label wood by genre?

    Just because basswood isn't as warm as mahogany does not make it unsuitable for other music. Vai's Ibanez is basswood. Of course, Vai plays metal right?

    George Benson - Ibanez
    Pat Methney - Ibanez

    most of the lower ends (below 20k) come with basswood

    well said.

    and @laney, yeah but basswood isn't actually bad. everythng about a guitar is suited to the person who plays it. Someone might like swamp ash, another might like basswood.
    which is why i think he should try out the guitars in a store first to see how it suits him.
