A friend of mine has about $400 to spend on a setup, i've told him he should really save, but he's relentless. So i've decided on the Roland Micro Cube amp and about another $25 for a cord and a strap. So around $250 left for guitar. He'll probably play a lot of System of a Down music and music like it, to Sublime. Suggestions are appreciated.

lol for $250? He cant afford either of those.

Your choices are extremely limited, my friend. And none of them are good. Id have at least $600 for a guitar and around at least $300 - $400 for an amp. Metal music requires a good guitar and an amp with balls. You can cut corners and use a crappy amp like a Marshall MG 10 watt or something, but it won't even be able to get over the volume of a drum set most likely, and it will sound like crap. And even with the money saved buying a bad amp, he still won't have any money for a good guitar.

Tell him to save.
mmmmmmhmmm

That's exactly what I've been trying to say.

Yeah, but he doesn't need a better amp than that one, he's pretty new to guitar (5 months) and he'll mostly just be playing in his house, so he doesn't even need a 30 watt amp.

Fair enough, but even so a good metal guitar for $250 doesn't really exist. There are ones that will be just 'okay' but not good. Try Epiphone, Jackson, Washburn, possibly a low-end Ibanez. Maybe BC Rich if he thinks pointy guitars that don't sound good are cool. lol

Does he want to play new SOAD or old?
