So, I have chosen my first amp and accesories, this will cost £97, being a roland microcube, picks strap, bag, lead.

But for my first guitar, what is the best one to get, preferably of GAK, with a limit of £160?

I thought:

Which is better/sounds better/is better?

For the xplorer ,it says it has quad rail pups, are they anygood? Atleast for a beginner?

Microcube is a good practice amp.

Guitar wise, for that amount of money, it won't matter much what you get, they'll all be of similar quality. Just don't buy a guitar with a Floyd Rose trem system for that price, it'll be garbage.

well tbh..im used to pretty mid-high end guitars..
so i dont know if it was the fact ive played for ages or just luck, but i could scream harmonics out of it like there was no tomorrow, the stock pickups are quite bright, but still got some midrange and bass packed in there..
i did like it, and kept playing on it, the only think i would change/get changed is the strings, dean stocks on that were ****..
also lower the action, this was straight out of a crappy shop, but if my mate wanted to learn on that, he did so
just tuned it up with the action n strings and it was all good
trust me, i think its the best option out of the two..

Why does the Dean say 3/4 sized if it's still 24.75" scale length? So just the body is smaller?


Here's another one. Personally I'd go with this one because it's LTD (ESP's cheaper division), they make excellent guitars and for the price that one's very good. And it looks sexy as hell.

Btw good decision to get the Micro Cube. It's an excellent practice amp.

ibanez rg321? yamaha pacifica 112v? (it doesn't look metal, but it has a bridge humbucker and the bolt-on neck and trem should make it pretty tight)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I own a Dean EVO and a Cadillac.

In your price range, I'd look at the Dean Vendetta. They aren't pointy like many metal guitars, and don't have the kewl graphics, but I think they actually deliver a little bit more for the money.

Be aware that there may also be EVOs and Cadillacs in your price range as well, but I didn't see any on the site you linked to.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

is it wise suggesting a 7 string for a beginner, though? i've never used them myself, but i'm guessing having six strings and not having to mute the bottom string all the time would make it slightly easier...
