i have an acoustic guitar and want to get an electric, what is a deceit guitar for between £200-£300/ $300-$500

Not for huge use really, i play mainly drums and want to do guitar as secondary instrument on the side, i want to get a bass also so any suggestions on a bass for the same price range (not sure if this is a forum for bass as well I'm new here!)

also what amps would be decent for home use?

thanks

You'd probably have better luck in the section labeled "Electric Guitar" since you're looking for an electric guitar.


crazy, I know.

i understand, many people don't like them, i also play stuff like nirvana if that makes it any better, i think its probably I'm drawn to it because of the drumming, nickelback mainly because of daniel adair and nirvana because of dave grohl, can't help it.


but on a serious note, any suggestions to a guitar?

It's on the main page of the forum. If you didn't look through all of the sections then it's your fault for not finding the right section. There's also a section for bass, further illustrating my point. You chose to not take five seconds to scroll down. That's all it would have taken.

Just buy a mexican strat with a humbucker or something.

Someone who joined in 2014. Try the Electric Guitar forum though.

You're not going to get a guitar that's that good for 300 dollars.

On a serious note, just get a Squier Affinity. They're cheap and good for beginners. You don't want to overdo it on your first guitar since there is a possibility that you might lose interest...

The forum for general discussion of topics that don't fit into the other forums. Please read the rules first.

If this is the description of The Pit, why wouldn't you check the other forums?

Ts get a new amp



indeed, i will need a new amp

The amp is more important than the guitar itself. Personally I don't even use the guitar part.

This man knows what's up. In my experience a good amp can power even an average air guitar, whereas an air amp is pretty much useless unless everyone around you is on hallucinogenic drugs

Go to a guitar store and try out all the guitars in your budget.

Buy the one that's sound you like the most and that you feel most comfortable playing. Seriously, this is the best advice you can get when it comes to guitars.

There are many brands, and they all have good and bad guitars. Brands to look out for at your price range are Schecter, Squier, Epiphone, LTD, and quite a few others.

You will also require a head and cabinet. However, these tend to be expensive. If you're planning to just play at home, buy a small combo amp. You can also buy a multi-fx pedal so you can try out various kinds of sounds.

For detailed recommendations and what not, go to the aforementioned Electric Guitar section. Remember to post where you live, your budget, and the kind of music you play while posting there for optimum answers.

One serious answer: Ibanez is often the best value for money, especially in that price range
