my friend wants to buy a guitar. he wants to play these kind of music




budget around 800$ any recommendations?

I assume that's USD

when i hear that i assume it's played on some kind of hot rodded super strat. a category of guitar which if i could have a choice of i would take a charvel from their pro mod lineup. for that specific application i'd probably go with the so-cal for the ceramic pickups over the alnicos in the san dimas, but both are awesome.

they also have a hard tail option in the san dimas line up as well, but imo every super strat should have a trem.

Does your buddy have an amp already? If not, does the $800 include the amp, or is there a separate budget for that?

Assuming it's going to be @$800 for both, try a Jet City 2212c amp and a Godin Redline HB (a hard tail HH superstrat) or Godin Freeway (HSH with a trem).

This Fernandes Dragonfly Pro might be a good option as well.
