I don't know but it looks really cheap (and it's pretty cheap) - I mean, the look of the guitar tells me that it is cheap without even looking at the price tag.

I would say don't buy it unless you can try it and really like it. Don't buy it just because it looks "cool".

Exactly. Most of my friends who buy similar guitars at similar prices really got disappointed. I'd rather get a cheap Squier [check out http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BulletHtBSB/] and save up for some pedals because if the bulk of that Arrowhead doesn't kill you, the tone will. Your genre of playing doesn't really come from the guitar itself, pedals and amps also take part.

I personally don't like the V look in guitars.

As far as electric guitars go i believe it's all in the amp. The guitar itself is just strings vibrating over magnets. My amp is of quality and has proven to do some amazing things.

I have to agree.
My Barracuda got me hooked on the music of Neptune.
The V is a lie and the C is the truth

That's not true. Yes, a good quality amp will sound good with almost anything but there are definitely clear differences between different guitars.

^ Agreed. The amp is very important, and too often ignored (which is why the anti-bandwagon of "amps are the only thing which matters/what you need is a new amp" started, I think), but saying the guitar isn't important at all is also wrong, if you ask me. Plug a strat and then a les paul into the same amp and tell me there's no difference.

I remember a thread, something about the proportion of the guitar and the amp - cheap guitars with good amps = no. Good guitars + cheap amps = no. Most cheap guitars also have a signature buzz.

I don't think you can put a figure on it. Any figure is basically made up, not to mention very dependent on exactly what you're comparing.

If I compare, say, a blackface fender twin to a silverface transition twin the difference will be less than comparing a strat to a les paul. but if I compare a twin to a 6505 and then compare a AVRI strat to an MIJ Tokai strat the amp will make way more difference. Same goes for pedals, it depends on the pedal you're using, and its settings.

But i'd agree that I probably wouldn't want to use a supercheap guitar into a superexpensive amp, or vice versa. A happy medium would be the thing, there. (Though price doesn't always equate 100% with quality either.)
