Hey, I am thinking of asking for an electric guitar for my birthday coming up in September. So far I have only played acoustic, so this will be my first electric. I was wondering if you would reccomend any good begginer guitars that I could ask for. Nothing too expensive. Also, I am going to need an amp, so if you could reccomend one of those too...

What music do you like?

For the amp, you should get either a Microcube or a Vox DA5 .

The Dean XMs are pretty decent cheap guitars.

If you don't mind buying speedloader strings, a very good guitar for the price (it used to be priced over $400) is the Floyd Rose Discovery Series DSF-2

Yeah! Go for a LTD ESP Guitar. Cheap and sounds cool! I would also reccomend VOX AD15VT (15W). The AD15 got great clean sound, and also many effects. Everything from pure clean, to pretty heavy stuff

^Except the guitars are crappy and the amps are crappy.

You can really do better than getting a pack.
