hey, im lokking to buy a new guitar, iv got roughly £250, and im not sure what to get with this small budget.

so far iv seen a nice peavey a70(or somthing like that), it was 140 second hand,

the guitar im playing currently has a kind of tight feel to the strings to play, unlike a squire, or somthing, so what do you rekon i could use new or second hand , thanks

It's a reasonable budget, it depends what you are looking for, I paid £250 for my Schecter Tempest Extreme from Sound Control in Preston however I paid £290 for my MIM Strat from Riedy's in Blackburn different ends of the spectrum but both around your budget and both good buys.
I wish I had tallent and ability.

What kind of music do you play?

You could pick up an Ibanez RG321MH and swap out the pickups, or try some second hand guitar, like a Washburn X50PRO or an Ibanez SZ520 / SZ720 which you can get under £250 easily.

What's your amp? And what are your current guitars?

Some pics on my profile, it plays nice, has an air of quality to it and the stock pick ups are decent for the type of music I like however, I bought my Strat 2 weeks later and totally love it so unfortunately the Schecter does get a little neglected, I think as with any other guitar, you've got to try them first, Schectors aren't to everybody's taste.

A new amp would probably benefit your sound more

A sh!tty guitar through a good amp will sound much better than a good guitar through a shtty amp

If you're into Les Pauls, maybe look into proper Epiphine LPs rather than unbranded poor ones
