Hey guyz, my father said he is going to give me $5000 for a brand new guitar. I have playing guitar for 3months now and i think i am alright. I have myself playing guitar with my fender stratocaster with mexi pick ups.


please tell me which guitar i should buy, tell me if my skill is good!

may the force be with you

id spend half of it on a nice amp though

2500 will get you pretty much any amp or guitar you could ever want

3 months.... $5000? Bit too early, don't ya think? Might want to make sure you're actually going to commit before you put that much in.

To me, Jonas Brothers sound identical to Dragonforce. So I'm not sure what you've just proved.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.
um, electric guitar forum would be the correct place for this, and why are spending 5000 on a guitar when you've been playing three months? I'd buy a good guitar for maybe a thousand ad just keep the other 4k
Look into a cheap tube combo for practice, get some pedals, and use the rest for in a deal with the guy on this site LINK call him and try to work out a custom guitar. i dont know how that works.
But if not definately get a CUSTOM MADE guitar

Guys just because he has the money to spend doesnt mean you should flame him, he is fortunate, dont hate him for it.

Road king i assume?

But yeah anyway. You are a lucky SOB. Definitely look into an amp first. You can spend the rest on a decent guitar or even just spend it on better pickups to make your current guitar better, and then keep the rest for pocket change.

judging by the video i would say (if thread is for real) go for it. get a really nice strat cus it looks like thats what you prefer and then get a really nice amp. i would personally suggest a mesa or possibly a nice Marshall JVM.
