So my parents were always scared of buying stuff off the internet because it might not come in or it might get damaged but and the end of the school year they are considering buying me a guitar off the internet(musiciansfriend).

I have a budget of about 500 dollars(something around tht range).I mainly play metal like metallica and megadeth and some blues/rock stuff like eric clapton so something kinda versatile.

Im fine with the amp i have now because im not gigging or anything.
Thanks UG!
