    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    Why don't you go to the store, tell the sales rep to show you all the Fender guitars they have available, play them yourself and decide? After all, the guitar should sound good to you.

    That should be your first resort after you shortlist. Or before; but either way only you can decide that the sound is good.

    Ya dude, check them out hands on. Don't think there's any shame in it. After all its ur money(Assumed). Play it n no. of times. Listen for the tone and blah-blah. Though for ur budget, don't go for the Squiers.

    And check for prices in Delhi as well. And don't forget www.bajaao.com

    why do u want to buy a fender guitar. I feel Ibanez guitars are the most vesatile guitars..you can play all different styles right from blues to heavy metal. And if u r really keen on buying a fender i wud suggest you to buy an American made guitar. you will be paying a huge amount only for the brand name if you go for Indonesian, korean or chinese models. None of these sounds like a fender.

    yea...why only fender? They arent the greatest guitar company or something....you should look at the Ibanez RG321 , ESP 100s ....i played a 29,000 fender my friend bought from abroad 2 days back....and i dunno....i dont think it was worth the money concidering the other awesome guitars in that price range...as for amps check out the laneys and marshalls...marshalls are pretty expensive...whereas laneys are awesome!! ....and as for wah wah...if ur looking for a budget wah...the Behringer is pretty cool....or the Dunlop one is good if ur willing to pay...

    (Sighs) Yes, Fenders are not the price for money if you go for one made in someplace other than America. But, the Stratocasters are, without a hint of doubt, the most versatile guitars around. I believe that a 11k Ibanez can never match up to a 11k Squier even. Still, both are crap. Yet, for 15k, go for an Ibanez.

    OK, get a vintage '62 strat and compare it with any godd@mn Ibanez. Lets see, which plays better!

    There you go! I believe each guitar should be classed by the price range. In lower segment, I think Ibanez is good. But If Vintage, then Fender.

    Do you want a guitar or a bass? If you want a guitar, why are you considering a P Bass? Thats a bass guitar. Also, forget Fender if your budget is 25K. You will not get a Fender in India for 25K. Look elsewhere, depending on the type of music you want to play. If you play metal, look at Ibanez, Kramer , Jackson etc. If others, look for other styles. Also, do you have processor pedals? One wah will not suffice for you. If you want a fender squier, go for the best one, should cost about 13K, add another 4.5 K for a decent amp and get a multi effect processor for another 8K. Should serve you well for the next 2-3 years atleast.
