Hey, guys. Okay, so, long story short, I used to play bass, and now I play guitar, but I don't own my own guitar. Whenever I play guitar, I use my brother's, but I getting sick of that, and I want to have my own. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of a cheap-ish but good full set. At least I want a good guitar and amp combo. I would perfer a tube amp, because I hear that they work better for the high frets, if nothing else. I'm in high school and I'm poor (and I know musical equipment doesn't come cheap) so I want to keep it below $800. I play a lot of metal and punk, so I want good distortion and a decent clean channel. Please keep the guitar lingo simple because otherwise I will have no idea what you're talking about. Thanks!!! :stickpoke

There's one a couple towns over, which is probably about an hour and a half away, so I can get a ride and hang there for a while. Which is a yes, thanks.

Yeah, but thats what my brother has. Though you'd expect that if I modded it that I would probably work out nice. Plus that would keep me under my nonexistent budget.

For a guitar, I would go for a Made In Mexico Fender Strat, or an Epiphone Les Paul Custom.

FAIL

If you have 800 to spend, get a Peavey VK or Randall RG50TC and a MiM strat.

Yeah, those are most likely the best choices. Lots of successful artists play Epiphones, and Mexican Strats are significantly higher quality than Squiers.
