Hey,

I want to get my girlfriend a guitar and amp for Christmas. she's expressed an interest in wanting to play electric but I can't decide what a nice combo would be.

Any suggestions? Guitar or amps....I want to keep the combined budget below 300.

Thanks

Yamaha or Squire starter pack maybe? I'm pretty sure either of those will easily be within your budget

Id be tempted to not waste the cash. I mean alot express interest, but well :P

Id start her off with an acoustic just undera £100 tbh, then spend the rest on a nice meal and perfume maybe?

She would probably be very diverse....she loves classic rock and modern stuff so she's all over the board.

Just get her a squire! I have one, and still my only electric for 2 years, and its an awsome guitar. You can get a nice one for like less than $200. It plays all types of music^ to the above question.
And amp wise...... You arent gonna get her a stack.. so Just go with A cube? if you can get one cheap enough.
Ide get her an acoustic. And let her play your electric.

Just be careful before spending that kinda money. You said she's taken an interest in it. Is the interest big enough to be spending that much?

It's something she's wanted to do for a long time

Yeh but ive always wanted to paint :P and i did, then lost interest :P

Acoustic is the way foward, and like someone said before, jsut let her play your electric if she wants to :P

Get her a Squier Jagmaster, not the black and white, the sunburst (same price) and a Spider 15 watt. For a beginner, that won't be horrible, and the smaller ones are ok.

sounds about right to me.

Anyway, I'd say a Squier Affinity Telecaster and a small Peavey Vypyr or Roland Cube would be a good versatile combo for that budget.
Gear:
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
Ibanez GRG170DX
Peavey Vypyr 75
Fender Princeton 650 DSP w/ Celestion 80w speaker

Ibanez RG120 and a Peavey Vypyr 15. Greatest deal of all time...kinda. But seriously, consider it. Great versatile amp, and pretty good guitar(For the money that is).

You're a smart guy.

the black one looks pretty ****ty, and the sunburst one is sexy as ****


I was looking at one of those before getting my CS STrat.

Like most others said, its hard to go wrong with a Squire Standard Strat as a first guitar. They run for $199 on Musicians Friend, and you can find plenty small practice amps for under $100.
