Hello,

My friend would like to learn how to play electric guitar. He wants to mostly play metal. His budget is $1000. Anyone got any nice suggestions? Thanks!

I second the idea of him not spending a lot to start. He won't appreciate the quality or tone of it, and if he backs out, thats a $1000 he'll never get back. He needs to stay away from Floyds too. Also, learning metal takes time; you can't jump in and learn metal. I would suggest a Fender MIM Fat Strat and something like a Roland Cube 30X, or maybe even a Micro Cube. He could also check out one of the Vintage Modified HSS Squier Strats.

I'm not sure that he needs a 50 watt. I recommended him to get the 30 watt VOX.
