One that is good for gigs and stuff, I have an epiphone SG but I really don't like it,

I have a budget of around £100-£240.

I was thinking of getting a Yamaha Pacifica, or one of the cheaper Ibanezes, but I didn't want to get an Ibanez because they don't make the tone I want.

I want a guitar which has a good clean tone such as the tones used in Nirvana songs In Bloom and SLTS, which is why I was worried about getting an Ibanez.

I've tried the Pacific, and I love it, Rosewood neck, really light, makes a nice tone, but is there something wrong about it which explains the low price?

Why are you worried about getting an Ibanez - they're just as capable of those tones as any other guitar...Pacifica 112 is a good guitar though.

The RG321 is always a good bet too.

However, if you can scrape together enough cash to get you to £300 you won't find a better deal than this

also, the higher pacificas are doubtless worth a look (412, 612), and some godins can be had for quite cheap, they're quite nice too.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

i got a pacifica... i love it, awesome guitar and don't let the price put you off they are extremely robust and comfortable to play, the neck is extremely well shaped and a pleasure to play... the only problem i have with it is the single coils suck a bit but the humbucker is pretty good. i would advise it very much.
