I've been playing bass for about three and a half years and i want to start playing guitar. Ive tried out guitars and stuff in stores and played my friends a few times and i relaized that im really not good at all. So i just want a starter guitar and i was wondering what guitars or sets are good for beginners. The most im willing to spend is about 350 for the guitar and amp. Any suggestions??

I wouldn't get a set. The amps are usually ****ty. Go for a squier strat. But go to a store and play them to find one that feels good to you. They do make SOME good guitars. But most are pretty bad. I'm not recommending epiphone because at that price range, they suck.

Peavey rage is a nice amp. Solid State and about 80$ or a Roland cube.

EDIT:
I forgot about Agile guitars. Very nice LP copies. ^

I think an Agile Les Paul and a Micro Cube would be the best option, based on your name. Would you be playing mostly metal?

When you say 350, you mean American, right?
