You don't need tone/volume control with a shred guitar like that. You're always gonna be doing full-on shred.

id go second hand, and shop around to really get something that fits your style

Hello Kitty is really a good guitar. It's still a strat.

But I would say Yamaha Pacifica. Has a pretty good sound if you add the right stuff to it.

Get a regular Fender (or Squier) Strat, great guitars and pretty cheap too. Or if you can afford a Gibson Les Paul second-hand, get that. They're great.

the 310 is junk. The 400 is good, however. TS, for about $100 more (50 pounds) you could get an epi LP std plain. can be pretty good.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

The "vintage" one is only $300.

DO NOT GET THE G-310, THOUGH.

Epi G400 SG, Ibanez RGR321EX/RG321MH (my pick would be the MH, it's typically a tiny bit cheaper and it's a little better built), or Vintage brand Les Paul copies.

Generally though, for under £150, you're not going to get much at all.


Also, £150 doesn't quite equal $300, it's a little under. There's also two more problems with judging guitars by American currency:

1) Importing guitars costs a lot, in the past I've ended up having to spend as much as an additional £370 to get a guitar from America to the UK. Obviously, this is almost never worth it on expensive guitars, and is flat-out never worth it on cheaper guitars. We (in the UK) can import cheaper from Germany anyway, so look at German sites instead of American sites if you can't find what you want here.

2) Americans pay less for guitars than we do. A guitar that is $300 in America won't be £150 here... it'll normally just be £300 here. When stores and brands price up guitars for each country, they rarely scale the prices; they just say it's 300 [insert unit of currency here], regardless if that's £, $, or whatever. So yes, this does normally mean we end up spending twice as much on our guitars as America does. Some stores have realised that we're not all totally oblivious to this though, and have started lowering their prices so now we only spend about 150% of what Americans do, rather than 200%. It's still more though, so you really can't judge any guitar by the American prices.
The exception is Gibson and Epiphone SG guitars. For some reason the prices on those are often scaled properly, and we rarely pay more than Americans, in fact sometimes the UK gets certain SG models cheaper than America does. I believe this is partly due to the fact that SGs sell at a decent rate in America so there is slightly more demand, while here in the UK very few people touch SGs compared to other countries.
