My friend is going to get his first electric guitar but doesn't really know which one to get.

What is the MOST you could spend?
- About 500$

What type of music are you going to make?
-Indie. Arctic Monkeys, Strokes, Babyshambles, Libertines....

Feel free to come with suggestions.

The one he's been looking at is the Gibson Melody Maker.....................................

If he bought that one shpuld it be with one or two pu's?

Thank you...

That guitar sucks IMO.

For his style, a nice Fender Telecaster sounds fitting

Your link doesn't even work, and the Gibson Melody Makers aren't really well known for their tone and playability.


Ok, thank you. The answer I needed. What would you suggest instead?
Fixed the link for you too...

i just suggested a perfect guitar for him seeing as all of the listed bands above use a guitar similar to that.

are you kidding me?


Thank you. He might get a telecaster now but hey, it's still nice with more than one choice to try out don't you think?

Has he been playing the acoustic a while before or is this his first guitar?

No.

If you're playing Indie, you belong on a telecaster no matter what.

He's been playing for a couple of months now on an acoustic guitar.
