I have a friend who is a beginner and wants to learn the Electric. Main use : Metal
his budget is around 400$, give and take a few. Which guitar would you recommend ? From my personal experience i did not like some low end LTD's i played (M10 and AX50) but i havent played either for a very long time.
Please dont suggest some exotic brands which aren't easily available in guitar stores. And Epiphones aren't available here so no Epiphones either.

If he goes used he'll find a guitar he'll keep the rest of his life. My first guitar was $300 used, it sold for $700 new in '97'. Still one of my best guitars. Had it 5 years now. Doubt if i'll ever get rid of it.

If he likes metal it might be worth looking at some of the low end Jacksons is well but the Peavey Vypyr amps are really good idea, way better than the Line 6 Spider.

+1 Upgrading from my dad's squier strat to the jackson js30rr was great for metal (back when i played metal) Still a great beginner guitar after 3 years.
