I am buying both an Acoustic-Electric and an Electric. This would be my second guitar, and I learned from the first guitar that you get what you paid for so cheap does not always mean good.

IN that matter, I am on a real tight budget. My max is 400 dollars (lol) so together with the accessories I can go 400 therefore the guitars themselves have to cost 300-370 together.

I was deciding on:

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-GRX20-Electric-Guitar?sku=519417

and

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Rogue-Dreadnought-Cutaway-AcousticElectric-Guitar?sku=519292

And yes, it is a Rogue, but I heard some people say they are good.

So in your opinion is it a good enough guitar? I've played for 2 years and I don't need pro. quality stuff, just average sound with durability.

Are these good or do you have suggestions?

Edit:
Btw I was also looking at the Acoustic's and I saw this:
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-AJ1-Acoustic-Guitar?sku=518681

and this

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-SGSpecial-Electric-Guitar?sku=517239

Would these be better than the two previous?

yea, youre not going to be happy with either instruments. Would be better if you spend the $400 on something you actually like and not just settling on.

Why not dump the full $400 into just one guitar?


I really want an acoustic too. And I saw the Acoustic-Electric the same price as the Acoustic and I really wanted an Acoustic-Electric anyways.

Edit: Plus, it's not 400 its 300-370 cause I need an amp and accessories too.

Btw I remembered, does anyone have suggestions for good priced amps?

dont go for the epiphone electric. Its better than the GIO ibanez but thats because they both are terrible. The epiphone acoustic however, is an okay buy. However, as I said before, you will regret splitting the money between two guitars. If you must, look on the used market (craigslist, kijiji)

So how about the Ibanez I showed + the Ephiphone Acoustic. Good combo?

Ok dude, I need you to take what you read here to heart and believe its true because it really is.

You WILL NOT get a good electric, acoustic, or acoustic-electric guitar for $400 combined. MAYBE if you go used, but not new. Like you said, you get what you pay for. Electrics start getting worth it at $350-400. Acoustics are worth the money at $300. Acoustic-Electrics are worth it at $400-500.

Honestly, don't go and get those guitars. Decide which one you want more and dump the $400 into that.
