I'm going to try and learn electric guitar and I need to know what the best guitar I should start out on is. It'd need to be kind of cheap(like $200 to $250). So can anybody help?

first start with an acoustic when you switch over everything seems so much better
if at first you dont succeed....FAILURE MUST BE YOUR STYLE

If he wants to play metal or punk I don't think an acoustic would be the best buy

i disagree. I started on an electric and it just made me play so much more and progress so much faster, as to my cousin who started on a cheap classical. I think the little things that will make you pick it up and play it more will have a better affect than something that will maybe one day make your playing seem better when you switch.

Just my oppinion, but for a cheap electric that isnt to bad i'd say the Ibanez GRX models (or similar) over any squier or no name.

i would definitly start with an electric. there so much more versitile. if you dont have an amp you might want to go for the ibanez jump start pack. it sounds kind of lame, but its actually a nice guitar and if you keep playing you can upgrade the amp.

if u learn on acoustic, you'll have more finger-strength. it's that simple. especially on a crappy one (i learned on a suzuki violin company acoustic guitar----wtf?)

Thanks I'll try looking for that brand and by the way just so you know, its she and I'm going for metal and rock blends.

for metal and rock, ibanez will work great. Do you understand that you'll have to also buy an amplifier if you're getting an electric guitar though?

Heavy electric strings. Problem solved.

Ibanez GRX40, you can learn so much more stuff on there, because it has a tremolo bar, its not a necessity, but it adds to your bag of tricks.


And by the way, I have that guitar.

I bought the Jumpstart Package for 200 dollars on eBay.

Incoherent - yes.
Without meaning - I'm afraid not.
