    Out of curiosity, I once played this Yemaha acoustic in a store. I should say "Man, what a sound". Just the right guitar to make your enemy hate and quit guitar instantly.

    Hey DeathDr_87, mind your words man. You are insulting firewood by comparing with this guitar. ;) Just kidding.

    OK then its a total no-no. I am a newb and want a cheap but good electric guitar to start with. I have played acoustic for about 2 yrs. now.Cud u please suggest an electric guitar that is cheap but not too bad?
    btw, how are Gibtone, Givson and Hobner Electric guitars.
    and another thing, what makes an electric guitar "good" and another "bad" except the sound quality/tone and action?

    Whats ur budget dude?? Im mean seriously u are looking at worst Electric guitars on the planet I suggest u save up some money & Buy a Low in end Samick Rs 7000, Kramer foucus 211 Rs 7800 or Behringer guitar pack incluedes Guitar amp , Strap Picks set of strings etc which is priced at about 8500 Rs .. Or else go in for Tansen Indian Guitar Rs 6000 to 8000 ...

    Well my budget is around 4K, as i wont be playing guitar seriously, u know ( I am a Keyboardist actually). I have an acoustic guitar with a pickup installed. But 4 some reason the 3rd,4th,5th and 6th strings sound softer (quieter) than the 1st and 2nd. Cud u tell me why? And cud u answer another of my queries:

    shak Harrr!

    the playability, balance, finish, WOOD, electronics, etc. these are the factors which can determine the standard of guitar...but in one way or another they all are related to sound/tone of guitar

    Hey, 4K is too low to get a decent guitar. You can get this Gibtone, Givson, etc. but they are worthless. You'd be better off buying a good acoustic guitar for that matter. You can try GB&a, Comet, Java, Lotus as some cheap but ok guitars. You can get it from 7K onwards. You can also look at basic Tansen models for around 7K to 8K.

    Thanx. And could u tell me why i am having this problem with my acoustic guitar fitted with pickups which i told u about:
    btw, which is better : a ZOOM GFX-4 or a BOSS-ME50?
  12. ronnieanand

    The pick up could be of very poor quality. The angle or the height might need adjustment. If it's a local pick up, throw it away and get a peizeo electric pick up fit. This might make a lot of difference.

    I have used both good and bad quality picks. I also tested each of the magnets of the pickup by opening it and playing the 1st 2 strings thru each of the magnets. They sounded fine. Could it be something due to acoustic strings? And how do i know if my pickup is a piezo-electric one?

    Do you still get ME 50 ?? I have heard great reviews of the Zoom Gfx but nothing beyond that . I think they upgraded the ME 0 to now a ME 55 I played on it but its to expensive I think GT 6 Rocks as far as Boss Multieffects are conisdered. Well Like Anand said 4 K is to little for a good guitar but u can try u might get second hand tansen in that price ... But In 7 to 8 K u will have a lot of choice ..

    Well, ok. But how do i know whether i have a piezo-electric pickup?

    pcikups that go across thw strings are magnetic - instead switch to nylon strings - go to a store and ask for a piezo giuotar pickup - its fitted on ur guitaars body as opposed to the sound hole.... (or under the stringas0 - piezos can be fitted anywhere on the guitar as such - but u get nice acoustic tone near the bridge
