Hey, I'm a bassist and have been playing since christmas last year, and was looking at starting guitar as a hobby, but continuing to play bass seriously, i have about, 600 AUD to spend, my friend has offered to sell me his last guitar second hand
He wants $200 for the guitar, it's like new and is a Monterey MMG-3BK, It has two Humbucker Pickups and Chrome Hardware, Firstly do you think this is worth it, i have played the guitar alot before, and i like the feel it has,
http://www.flindersviewmusic.com.au/shop/product.php?productid=16281, thats the link for the guitar, this leaves me with about $400 for an amp i was looking at 100 watts, and whilst i was at the guitar shop the other day, buying a new lead i asked the guy about a guitar amp. he showed me an ashton that ran on 2 channels, and hs alot of distortion built in, it was going for about $500, do you guys think this would be worth it or is another amp exceptable
i mainly play anything From slipknot to greenday, all the way to I Killed The Prom Queen
If you are one of the %10 of teen who doesn't follow Rap
and you follow PUNK, METAL AND HEAVY ROCK COPY AND PASTE THIS TOO YOUR SIGNATURE

I wouldn't buy it. Get a Yamaha Pacifica or something around those lines if it's in your price range. Maybe look used. And for the amp, do you really need 100 watts? I don't think so. You probably could get a Peavey Vypyr or something like that. That would be a nice starter's rig.

It even says "High Quality" in the title, so you KNOW it's quality

Agreed. Unless you're gigging, you really don't need 100 watts, and you're just starting. Even if you do expect to gig, if you get a good small amp, you could always upgrade later if needed, or mic it.

i'd usually reccomend a sqier strat to a beginner but it sounds like you kinda know what youre doing lol.

so agreed with roaming conflict id go for a yamaha pacifica, or base range ibanez (grg170dx or something in the gio range)

as for a hundred watt amp, if its neccessary go buy it, but i have a 15 watt amp and that does me.

I wouldn't recommend a squier for my worst enemy. I hate those guitars!

I was looking at the specs of this guitar

Warlock style guitar with 2 humbucker pickups, Rosewood fingerboard, Hard Maple neck, 1 Vol + 1 Tone + 3 way selector switch, deluxe fulcrum tremelo, chromed diecast machineheads, chromed hardware, Alder body. Colour: Black.[\code]

the pickups probably blow. if you want something good then look for something with some seymour duncans and they'll scream. i honestly wouldn't look at this guitar to buy. see if hell let you use it to borrow so you could learn.
Get up and free yourself from yourself.
