i want to get a new electric guitar, a 5 string bass, and an acoustic, but i don't have a lot of money to spend, so i don't want to go too far over 200 on the bass and electric, and not too far over 100 on the acoustic, so i need to know if these are good, and if not, i need some suggestions.

I have that electric guitar. It's kickass. Very versatile and sounds great, but the build quality isn't the best. Some parts unscrew easily and the neck isn't perfectly aligned, but I think that's just my guitar. It sounds good, that's all that matters.

The acoustic is pretty good too. Epiphone make great acoustic guitars. I think it's well worth it.

The bass...I've never tried a Rogue, but the features are very good. I'm not sure of it, though.

electric - theres better but its ok
bass -its quite good
acoustic-hell no yamaha are so much better for the price

with the electric, i would prefer blue, but it doesn't matter as long as it's not black or white, and i want a tremolo

and what about washburn for the acoustic, this one looks good, and isn't too expensive http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Washburn-D100-Acoustic-Guitar?sku=515366

^What kind of tremolo? Standard or floating?

what's the biggest difference, i haven't really used a tremolo before, so i really don't know, is it that you can lock and disable a floating tremolo?

Simply put, you can either have one or not. The advantage of having one is that you can do crazy Vai-type squeals/dive bombs/horse noises etc, and the disadvantage is that if you have a bad one, if you look at it funny, it?ll go out of tune. If you aren?t going to use one, it?s handier not to get one, to be honest (particularly for double-locking types, which involve more complicated stringing and tuning- it?s not rocket science, but it does involve more work).

If you don?t get a trem, you?ll probably get a hardtail of some description. These tend to have better sustain, as well. You won?t be able to do any whammy-tricks, though.

Types of trem: basically, there?s:

Vintage style (Fender Strat and Bigsby type): good for subtle vibrato but won?t hold tuning too well with anything more extreme.


Modern non-locking (like Wilkinson and PRS types): hold tuning better than the vintage ones, but not so well as double-locking.


Double locking (Floyd Rose and equivalent): ultimate tuning stability (there are clamps that lock the strings in place at the nut and at the trem), and allow pitch to be raised AND lowered by several semitones (assuming the trem is recessed into the guitar's body, and set up to float), but involve extra effort in setting up and changing tunings, and there are some poor licensed examples, which don?t hold tuning very well at all- see Commandment #8.

^Yeah, but floating bridges are only worth it if you play shred, Pantera, Slayer or something along those lines.

IMO

There's only one problem then, guitars with good locking trems aren't cheap.

i noticed that, the cheapest ones i found were about $350, and they were hollowbody guitars, and i want a solid body

a standard tremolo would be fine, but i would be willing to go up to $275 or a little more if i could find a guitar with a locking tremolo that cheap

what would be better, a guitar at that price with a sucky locking tremolo, or a guitar for $75 dollars less with a standard tremolo

^You don't want a sucky tremolo, most of them are hit-or-miss, and a replacement sets you back by at least $200.

You can't replace a standard tremolo with a locking tremolo....

EDIT: you can, but you wouldn't be able to dive-bomb or raise pitch.

Hold the phone! I just found a website that sells Kramer guitars for cheap!

EDIT: http://www.musicyo.com/brandland.asp?dept_id=1
Look around for the locking tremolo models, Kramer FR's are good (EVH used them)

I wouldn't buy one unless if I had a good backup guitar though.

also, which acoustic is better

i was going to get this one: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Washburn-D100-Acoustic-Guitar?sku=515366

but this is cheaper:http: //www.musicyo.com/product_specs.asp?pf_id=441

if they're equal, then i would get the cheaper, but i want to know for sure, because there's not much of a price difference, and i can save 10% at musiciansfriend with a promotional code, too, so keep that in mind

Which guitar do you currently have? It's good to know that first before taking risks, because you never know if their guitars are dodgey.
