possibly with a thinner sounding tone...................................

Hi there, I have a Epiphone SG with "9" strings on it and the chance to obtain a new budget guitar has arisen as my girlfriend wants a guitar too. She likes the light body of the SG and I am wondering what budget electric to buy next ?

I would quite like a whammy bar but am aware this could potentially cause tuning problems on a cheap model. I aspire to Ed Wynne's guitar sound from Ozric Tentacles and like that kind of thin space sound. (of course down to incredible skill and also excellent effects/studio production)

Does the actual guitar make a much difference to the thinness of tone, or is that predominantly tone controls and string gauge?

Any tips on a good < = £150.00 axe would also be most welcome.

Thank you.

Any Squire Strat with a tremolo and single coils would be perfect. Try one out.

Many thanks for the replies and suggestions and for those not familiar with Ed Wynnes work in the Band Ozric Tentacles here is an example track, nice soloing from 04:00 :

Track is 11 mins + worth the listen IMO if you have a little time : )

He's not that well known relative to many lesser guitarists I hope it introduces someone new to Ozrics.
