My first Electric Guitar. I was going for a Gibson Les Paul, but my friend told me just to get a Burswood Fender for now as that is what He used at first and although it's not a well known brand, they are quality guitars for what you pay.

Also, I practise six hours a day on this thing and it hardly goes out of tune.

no, how can a guitar be too advance for a beginner, theres no such thing. so ur sayig if you had enough money to buy a really good guitar you would buy a crappy one just because your a beginner IMO it saves you time and money buying a guitar you enjoy and love at the start

I lol @ people who get mad when a newbie buys an expensive guitar. Sure, like me, most of you probably started out with something ****ty. (I started with a 100$ guitar and 50$ amp) but when you think about it, wouldn't you of loved to start with a Gibson, or some other expensive guitar?

Lol my beginner guitar costs like $150. I love it, it does everything I need it to do. Fender strat is a good, solid guitar for a beginner.

I'm not great, but have a BFDR and a 60s CS Stratocaster. Good gear motivates me to play more. HOWEVER, I would reccomend getting a MIM Standard as a FIRST, this is my second set of gear, and I'm keeping these.

No.

People want to play what they listen to. If someone doesn't listen to acoustic music, an acoustic guitar wouldn't be the right thing for them.

It's not Fender?



Bingo. Pay attention to what TS has said, it's a BURSWOOD fender copy. The brand Burswood isn't well known, but a reasonable copy. It even says so on his gear pics:

TS, enjoy your first, and don't let people on the internet who cannot read or pay attention to a thread bring you down. Hope the guitar makes you happy

Yeah, we would've all started on Gibsons or High-end Fenders if we had the choice.

fender an unkown brand?
are you high?
and its not exactly wise to buy a les paul for your first guitar because, #1 if you dont stick with it, or youjust dont like guitar that much, you just threw away $2,000.
and #2, all the guitar players who have been playing and playing for years and years ad are better than you will be pissed off at you
EDIT: nvm its BURSWOOD fender....teehee

I think he meant his friend told him to get a cheap copy of a fender made by a company called Burswood instead of a gibson les paul because there's no point starting with such an expensive guitar - also maybe he didn't realise gibsons were so expensive, being a beginner?
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

For most beginners, the strat is the only Fender they know about.. So it would make sense to refer to the shape as a Fender when he doesn't know any of the technicalities. At least he can recognise his guitar is a copy, not the real deal.
