Hi everyone. Im looking to get a new guitar before i go to uni. I want to get an old vintage second hand guitar for as cheap as possible (around £50-£150). At the minute i play a squire strat through a marshall amp, but i am looking for something more original sounding. I would like a powerfully sounding guitar across between jack whites airline and tony Iommies gibson SG, so like a heavy blues sounding guitar. I dont really know anything about guitars appart from how to play them, so any help on brand names or something would be much appretiated. I have been told that these brands are good:
Silvertone
Vox guitar
Teisco
Danelectro

Does anyone know any other brands that are good? Does anyone on here play a vintage guitar and recommends or doesnt recommend getting one?

Meh, I usually just buy them off the local shaman, unless I'm in the wilderness, where I rely on raw meat to raise my HP.

i'd personally recommend saving up abit more mate and getting the sg youn were on about, iv;'e got an epi one of them and it sounds great, but if you really want a vintage guitar for that price look on e-bay and try and find a cheap one or buy a danelectro u-2, there ok.

ur tone mostly comes from ur amp. if its a marshal MG, ur not going to be happy with ur sound.

buy a humbucker for the bridge of ur squier.
and buy a vox amp wt effects.

Play them cheap vintage guitars, see what you think.

But remember, vintage doesn't always mean good.
