I wanted to hear your opinion on which guitar I should buy.
What I am looking for is a electric guitar with a fixed bridge(no tremolo).
It should be a guitar for a person with who has played for around 6 months.
and the budget is 700$ (american dollars) but that's really pushing it!.
i play mostly indie rock like Arctic Monkeys.. Sometimes GnR-stuff and Velvet Revolver
the best i could find was a Ibanez RG321MH... any other suggestions

the amp i intend to use is a Roland Cube 15 or 20X amp

The Ibanez RG321MH is a great guitar. I used to own it. The neck is very comfortable, the pickups are versatile (I used it in a rock band and a jazz ensemble) and it's very affordable (way under $700). Definitely check it out.

and you can take the money you save and get a decent amp, the better stuff you start on i think the more youll wanna keep playing
Jackson DK2M Dinky Pro W/ EMG 81/85 18v Black
ESP LTD EC-1000 W/ EMG 81/60 See Thru Blue
Schecter C-1 HellRaiser W/ EMG 81TW/89 Black Cherry
Peavey 6505 W/ 2x12 V30

what country are you in? i'm guessing it's not the USA (or even western europe) if the best guitar you could find for $700 is an ibanez rg321. I'd have though it's way too metal for the tones you want, anyway.

what's your amp, too?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Denmark, the RG doesn't cost that, that's just the budget if it is really good.
the amp i intend to buy is a Roland Cube 15 or 20X...

Any suggestions on a good guitar and/or a good bedroom amp, that i can play Indie Rock / Rock on is much appreciated

how heavy rock? cubes are nice for hard rock and metal, but if you don't play too heavy stuff, a vox valvetronix might be preferable (the normal valvetronix, not the XL). also, if you do decide to go for the cube, consider the 30 instead as it has more amp models. i'll not recommend a guitar either, as, much like the cube, the ibanez is quite heavily geared towards metal and other high-gain playing.

possibly... how heavy rock do you mean by "rock"?

You might want to check out the ESP LTD EC-400, if you're considering an epiphone. It's got that classic Les Paul look, but I think the quality is better and it sports a Seymour Duncan '59/JB set. Definitely a versatile guitar.

ESP LTD guitars are extortionate in Europe.

To TS, ever used this website before? Thomann.de/dk

Good prices and reliable customer services!

ok, VR and g n r aren't all that heavy. metallica can be quite heavy, depends on whether you mean 80s metallica or new metallica, i guess...

i have no idea if they ship to denmark or not, but www.machinehead.co.uk is selling new old stock washburn wi65pro idols for £239 (i guess that's about 400-500 euro?), if they haven't all sold out, that is. Assuming they ship to denmark, and the shipping isn't astronomical (denmark is part of the EU, isn't it? you shouldn't have to pay customs then), that'd be my pick for a hardtail guitar with twin humbuckers at around your budget.

You should take a look at rondomusic. They have some good instruments for the price. The shipping to DK is quite alot, though. around $135

And to those who not living in EU. A budget of $700 can only buy guitar that cost half the price in the state due to all the taxes and shipping costs. such a pain...

a lot of indie uses single coils, to be honest. i might aim for something which has both, e.g. yamaha pacifica 112v or higher.
