    Ibanez grx40 n grg170 wil b good options(m confused betn them at the moment.. They cost 11k n 13k resp.. I knw ur overall budget is 15 bt bro dnt compromise for a matter of 3-4 thousands..!
    Furthur cheaper i heard good reviews abt squier fender bullet strat..pretty cheap 7k.

    You can learn about basics of buying a beginner guitar from here. It is one of the best guitar buying guide on the whole site.
    I would recommend you avoiding these Squier Strats or Ibanez grg series whenever possible.

    Another option: look for the same guitar in the used market. Use the extra cash to upgrade your guitar's pickup or get better amp or just save up for a better future guitar.
    Unlike electronics, a guitar does not get worn out in a year or two. But since there are not many second hand buyers in India, you could get these at a reasonably good price.

    You mean Paicifica, right? Constant use of Pacifier has left you with nothing but confusion.

    The Vypyr got enough effects on itself for a beginner. It would be best you can get with Yamaha Pacifica which will not cross your budget.

    DON'T, I repeat, DON'T even consider buying the Squier Bullet Strat ... I bought it myself about 4 months ago, but it had lots and lots of issues with it, starting with the usage of the whammy to the bridge and sound problems ... I managed to somehow to sell it to sm1 ... Rather buy a Yamaha Pacifica or a Squier Standard Telecaster, they'll be good beginner electrics and u'll not regret d choice ... And go for an amp like the Fender Mustang I or the Peavey Vypyr 15 W, they'll have plenty of effects inbuilt, so u can buy a pedal l8r on ... Peace :)

    He did? I didn't knew. I am new here. But I found that guide really well written so I thought it would be very helpful to any beginner. Although Ultarbot doesn't know much about individual instruments he named in there.

    Completely agree. Though a person bought one of the deluxe model of Squier Strat and he said it has got a good built-up and nice sound too.
