Hey everyone, sorta new here but Ive been browsing.
Im planning on getting a second guitar and I only got about $270 to spend.
Im stuck on either getting a Kramer Striker 424cm FR and an Ibanez gsa60. Ive heard reviews of both guitars but I cant choose which one to take. If anyone has had any experience or own one or both of these guitars, please help! I also like versatility and that Ibanez was just more for metal and shredding, but after a youtube review I'm not so sure. Someone also told me its more of a beginner guitar so...ehh!!!

Oh and I forgot to mention, please dont try to get me to look at another guitar, Im just focused on these two right now.

Thanks in advance!

all you can afford is a beginner guitar. sorry but 270 is NOTHING. But you can always get a squier affinity strat package.

please don't get the kramer. an FR bridge at that price will probably break in a week.

up your budget 30 bucks more and get an RG321. solid guitar for the price

I know you said you don't want to look at other guitar but seriously 270 is nothing like the guy above me said. i may be alot of money to you, but for a quality guitar, it won't be enough

One of the best guitars for 300 bucks. I trust ibanez guitars, my first guitar is an ibanez, and it's pretty nice.
My gear:

Memphis les paul (fixin it up as we speak!)
Schecter C1 plus
Ibanez RX 240 (been sold)
Peavey envoy 110 (Pretty dang good!)
Some washburn acoustic...

by the way, another option is to get a Squire bullet and upgrade the single coil pickups. if u want to keep it around 300 still you could get these: http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/product/Seymour-Duncan-Everything-Axe-Single-Coil-Set?sku=300068 and if u dont know how to do the wiring, im sure taking it in to the shop would cost no more than 30 bucks.

Omen 6's around here are 300 bucks, also nice guitars for the price, better than either the TS posted.

Didnt catch that part.
Watch this vid and skip 4:18 then watch the whole thing from there.

And Which Omen? 06 Deluxe or 06


i was being a bit sarcastic. it'll last you a few months but the knife edges will go dull and you'll lose tuning stability.
