Okay, so basically, my uncle is willing to get my literally ANY guitar in the phillipines since the guitars there are basically 1/4 of the price in the united states.
So which guitar should i tell him to get?
Which would you reccomend?
Any guitars i should stay away from?
I already have a sweet fender strat, so yeah.
Provide pictures please. :]
Thanks.

I'm thinking of getting:
Alpine White Custom Epiphone
Black Custom Epiphone
and the
Ibanez RG350EX.

Are those any good? =P

probably fake ones that say Made in America on the headstock, but it says made in china really small inside the guitar.

No, it's because of currency exchange rate.
#18
^then it wouldn't be 4 times expensive in america... if its the currency exchange rate, that means phillipines dollar is 4 times worth an american dollar?

i don't get it. teach me economics behind this.

Oh, sorry i wasn't being "exact"
Cause like, my uncle got me this acoustic in the phillipines for the
equivalent of $150 U.S dollars, and it was a $500 guitar in the u.s.
Also, i buy video game's there for like the equivalent of $15 dollars,
and it would be 50$ here.
Idk the exact exchange rate, i'll check it now.
#21
^that does not mean it is the exchange rate. did u take economics? i did, and now im confused...

but my teacher should be right. he taught Van Halen's Michael Anthony. his name in high school was like... Mike Sloveski or sumtin.

Is it guitars sold in the phillippines or guitars manufactured and sold in the Phillippines?

If it's the first one I would look into PRS, Gibson, or other expensive brand/guitar.

If the second...well, I dunno, most guitars from there are quite crappy.

well, this dude is right and wrong. its an example here in mexico. the if i buy a dollar here, i will give like 11.15 pesos (example), but if i sell a dollar here, the bank will give me like 10.95 pesos (example)

so, if i buy a strat here that in the USA is 300, here it will be like 3300 pesos, but if i translate to dollars by the selling rate, the guitar would have costed me around 290 dollars or something like that, wich isnt the real price. understood?
