Im gonna go 2 US in a few days and was thinking of getting an electric guitar. I have been playing on an acoustic for a while, but now want to move on to an electric. My budget is $600. I have been looking around, and people say that schecter is good value, can anyone make any brand or specific model suggestions? Also, can anyone recommend a good amp?

Jackson DK-2 [2004 MIJ] (EMG 81/SA)

i'll suggest right now that you make sure you can bring your guitar back with you on the plane without hassles or having to check it in as luggage. not likely that you'd be allowed to bring an amp back with you.

Well, $700 total budget, so i was thinking $100 Line 6 amp, and $600 guitar.
As for genre of music, i play a bit of rage against the machine, rhcp, a bit of metal, and i have had some classic guitar classes.
Also wanted to ask how to bring the guitar back without damage. Airline is AA
#7
where are you from? Just buy the guitar here and buy the amp where ever you live.

do you think that fits in a suitcase?


Yeah, its about 18"x18"x6". You could have it as a carry on, I mean... checking bags is kinda.. iffy. But I dunno if you can carry on the amp and the guit. If you gotta pick one or the other, check the amp and pack it in a suitcase with socks, and tshirts and stuff

When I went to Israel I brought my guitar as a carry on, they had to put it in a cubby or something because it wouldnt fit over head, but thats it. Nobody at the Israeli airport said anything and the only question I got about it in Dallas was what kind was it.

You dont even have to get on board terriblly early, just ask them if they can stash it some place, and they might ask you to see if it'll fit in the over head (which it won't) but just tell them it won't and they'll find a place for it. The attendants are AA are more like people that alot of airlines I think.

Thanks for all the suggestions and help with the topic man, do you know if guitar centre has the whole schecter range, or at least a decent amount of it?
Also, what kind of guitars does guitar centre carry? Is it better than Sam Ash store?

Sorry about the HUGE amount of questions, but truth be told, this is my second time to the states, and the first time i hadnt even started playing guitar
