Well, what do you play? There may be some other alternatives to those two guitars that may suit you better.

Have you tried each of these out yet? I can't tell you what you're going to like, so it's best you try them out and choose which is the best value for the cash. If you're not sure yet, don't rush into it and buy it.

Have you considered buying used? I find that new guitars are just a big money pit.

Have you tried Craigslist?

I bought my Tele, Strat, and sold my Spider on there. Craiglist is F'ing awesome.

I can find you some nasty deals

that site looks good but no one uses it wer i am..


Well nontheless, convince your parents to let you use ebay. Use a paypal account and only buy from sellers with high ratings. I haven't been scammed once off ebay, and I needed to return an item cause it didnt fit on my guitar, and the seller was more than happy to sell me the right part.

I dunno man, you can get great condition guitars for very little because people just need the money fast. I've seen MIM Strats going for $200, MIA Strats for $400, Gibson LP Standards for 1K, all in great condition. Used is the way to go . But hey man, up to you.
