it'd be good for someone your age.nice looking guitar, but probably sounds average, but at your age, you probli wont realise.
#3
Depends more on how long he's been playing. You never know, he might have developed some ear for tone, in which case this guitar may let him down. Ultimately it's his decision, and granted at his age he probably won't have the cash to splash out on a really decent guitar
#4
true, i started when i was 4, so i had an ear for tone by the time i was 7 or 8, so i got ****ty with my parents coz i had a **** guitar lol. so i got a better one, now im pretty good.im 16.

Although Flying V's look cool, I find them awkward and harder to play. What's your budget like? You could get a low end Fender or Yamaha. Those seem to be the starting point for most people.

Just go to a local music store and ask the guy about what a good starter guitar for your planned style would be.
#8
have you currently got an electric guitar? £100 is most liekly going to be a downgrade from what you already have. If you're just starting out on electric then I would recommend a fender squier or an epiphone les paul special II but they are a little bit more than £100.

Also have a look on eBay for Wesley guitars. some pretty cool ones and they are pretty decent quality, I've played about 5 of them, one of which was won in a bid (brand new) for £40

yea all those guitar would do you if you've only been playing for like 8 or 9 months. Being a new guitar player, you probably won't know the difference in tone.

If you're a beginner you might want to steer clear of the full floating trems on those Jacksons. Maybe a Mexican Fender Strat? They only run about $350, and a lot less on eBay; although I'm not sure the conversion to pounds. I'd suggest the Fender, but don't get a Squier.

well... just do the world a favor and dont get a squire... the ibanez is not a bad idea... again the old saying play anything in your price range comes to mind...

#18

no, its a piece of ****
it's not even as good as an Epiphone. It's the worst thing you can buy EVER
but if you want to buy it, I don't care, it's your money

dont go in a mood im only askin im not very good about knowing if a guitars any good or not
#22
The Ibanez would be good, but you should just stay clear from trem equiped guitars for the time being. A Made in Mexico Strat would be the best choice for you at this time. Also TS, what kind of music do you play?

Well try and get a guitar with a mahogany body because they usually sound better
and don't get brand name stuff for the sake of brand name stuff, you could get a better quality SG for the same price

''Kustom FX Amp, stand, spare strings & more!''

now isn't that better?

Although I still recommend the Ibanez for tone, if looks matter get that because it still sounds pretty good

That will last you a couple of years at least and will sound a lot better than your current set-up

The Epi G-400 would be a better choice IMO.

there is nothing wrong with squire guitars,i had one for my first guitar and theyr not much worse than mexican strats..just much cheaper
#33
Ugh, I bought a miniature red flying V for $100. And I completely regret it, me and my band throw it around and one day we will light it on fire, but the point is, at least get a $200 guitar, if you aren't completely novice, don't shop like it, get something that will last you a few years.
#34
If you have a budget of £100, check out the Yamaha Pacifica 112J.

http://www.turnkey.co.uk/web/productAction.do?dispatch=showProduct&SKU=YAMA-P112LPB&context=CLEARANCE

Solid starter guitar, and easy to upgrade.

If you have a budget of £200, check out the Ibanez RG321MH.

http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/ibanez-rg321-mh/67798

Awesome beginner - intermediate guitar, change out the pickups and it's bloody badass.
#35
Don't buy it, it will sound horrible, and be extremely uncomfortable. I honestly suggest saving more money.
#37
Yamaha pacificas are consistently good, and you should be able to get one for that price. It's probably your best bet, and will certainly last you several years. I'd take it over any low end Stagg (all utter ****), squire etc.... at least for under £100.

The bronze series is crap, or so I've heard. I wouldn't buy from GAK, a bloke I know reckons they deal in "second-grade guitars".. but I don't if that's true, could be BS. The RG doesn't have a floyd rose so you'd be ok with that one. I also trust Ibanez, so out of them, I'd say the Ibanez.
