try epiphone, they are good quality guitars for a good price, if you upgrade to gibson pickups for like 100 bucks when eevr you have the money it comes close to a gibson

try looking at the G-400 sg by epiphone, good guitar for a good price
heres a link to it, it plays good rock, metal, basically if you wnna play straight up rcok is what sg is good for, but also can play other genes, i personally think it sounds best for heavy rock, rock n roll, metal, ect.

try the les paul also, its in your price range, and plays a wide range of music, plays almost any gene of music

one of the g&l's tribute models would be great. i've got one, and i've read reviews by players who own a lot of other, more expensive guitars as well and they've had good reviews all around.

Sex her, take the guitar, then sex her mom and have her walk in on you. Then, mom is happy, she doesn't want to be your friend anymore, and you keep the geetar. It's a win win for America!

My uncle just bought an OLP MusicMan1 for $250 and it's a damn fine guitar. The unfinished neck feels great. The pick ups are crunchy and clear too.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

get a fender standard strat or a fat strat. Can't really go wrong with either. just make sure you try out the guitar before buying jsut to check if it is a "dud" or not. the consistency on the mexican fenders aren't that great and some of them are pretty bad, but if you find the right one, it will be awesome.
