When it comes to exams, guitars are the bigest revision throw off ever, its so hard to revise when u have a guitar by your side.

yes, having thought about it futher, its probably better to hunt down a yamaha guitar pack, with either the pacifica 112 (the one with one humbucker pickups) or the black one with two pickups (probably better for muse). They also make a tele-style one with two humbuckers, which should also be good for muse, but i don't know how much it costs. Surely its not long until you've done your exams at this time of the year? Do well and maybe you'll get it bought for you.

My last exam is the 22nd june and i can't wat til i get my results (end of august) to get a guitar. Plus, my family wouldn't buy me one. I'm just gonna have to get a lot of work done so i can buy one myself.

I know it's an encore but it's so perty
Agh, I know you`ve been warned...but those Encore `strats` are shite! They`re much smaller....disconcertingly light, play like ass munch and sound like dog mess.

For the dosh, you honestly won`t get much better than the Pacific. They`re a good play!
Get one with a bridge humbucker if you can. (and maple fingerboard YUM!)


Wow... with a nice Mattocaster body!

Unsure

Ok, that's it! I'm getting a guitar. I've saved enough money and I've wanted one for a while now. Does anyone know of a good one for around $400 - $500 Dollars?

Thanks!

Beginners 1st electric guitar.. any help???

Hey guys i was just wondering if anyone could help me, i haven't seen this thread posted before so.. I'm planning on buying an electric guitar in June, i now only play the accoustic (about 3/4 of a year) and am getting the hang of it pretty quick, but my lessons only start in September. Can anyone help me out as to which guitars i should take a look at as a beginner, not the cheapest but not too expensive?? I was thinking some kind of Fender or Ibanez.. anyone who can help me out who knows more on the subject?? cheers

ive got squier strat which is really good, im not really an expert on guitars but theres nothing wrong with it and its great to play, only problem is, ive had 3 strings snap in 3 weeks on the saddle, but after having it checked out, its just my playing style that did it and a bit of bad luck. if you're not that bothered about prices, the setup pack is about £200 and if i were you, id ask a shop about getting new pickups and, depending on the model, a thicker scratchplate than 1 ply as the screw positioning on the scratchplate is lacking at the top which does make a handy place to wedge my pick, but when somebody else was using it, they managed to push it down inside my guitar which was a nuisance. ive not got any new pickups as of yet, but my suggestion would be a bridge seymour duncan hotrail which is a small form of humbucker pickup. as for the bridge and neck regular fender or seymour duncan single coils for strat would be a sensible suggestion and you'd want to get the hotrail coil tapped, which means that you could use it as a single coil pickup aswell.

if you dont understand bits of that, post back here or e-mail me at donbenjy@hotmail.com as i cant be bothered explaining stuff if you already know about it. if you do want advice on pickups, i know the basics and could suggest a few arrangements and modifications that would give you a wider option although you really should ask biblical about them as he knows practically EVERYTHING

for about £300-400 you can get this,

or






they are a little expensive but it will last you a hell of a long time, and youd get a really nice sound out of the pickups too.

My first electric was a Vintage SG. I tend to avoid fender and fender-esque things like the plague, but that's for personal reasons. If I had a little more money when I was buying, I'd probably have gone for an Ibanez S series
(I was going to get an Ibanez S470DX, such as sexy guitar) or an Epiphone.

IMO, squiers cost too much for their sound (and the stratocaster is THE most copied shape in the world, mostly by really cheap makes. Don't you want to stand out a little?), cheap yamahas tend to sound like a plank of pine with strings on, and don't even think the word 'Encore'.

Vintage tend to make their guitars really well, and their necks are pretty damn confortable. My ex guitar teacher was amazed at the SG I bought, saying how good a sound it has (slightly mellower than the Les paul, but can also be nice and trebly), and what a nice design it is overall, with perfect access to all frets (the frets finish before it joins the body). This guy is an amzing guitar player, whowas in a blues band who toured with John Lee Hooker, so does know what he's talking about. And anyway, it's easy to upgrade the pups etc. if the guitars well made.
