i have $500, and im going to buy an electric guitar. I have had my acoustic for a few years but this will be my first electric. I've played my friends electric guitars a lot but i'm ready to get my own, but which one...

jay tursner flying v $400 is my choice. But if u want somthing a little less metal id say a ibanez RG.

What styles of music do you like?

Do you already have an amp? If so what is it?


Have you tried any guitars out yet that you liked?

I have a small peavey amp, its not great and i'll probably get a new one as soon as i can after the new guitar. other than that i mostly like to play rock, all kinds but not really metal.

It's best if you get a new amp. You'll hear a bigger difference in tone from a new amp than a new guitar.

epiphone Korina Vs are really nice
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

I agree first amp since it is the biggest part of your sound. you will probably be depressed playing the new guitar on the old amp.


but I still want to answer your question.

Ibanez is always a great deal or maybe a strat or epiphone les paul standard.

Ibanez RG with a pickup swap.

With 500 bucks get an Agile AL-3000 and a Valve Junior combo amp.

Valve - 149

Any of the Al-3000 or 3100's, 379.

Yeah it's a little over your budget but this is what you should get. You won't find a better combo for that amount.
Ibanez ARC300DVS plugged into a Valve Jr. with a 1x12 custom Ear Candy cab and a blues driver. (Too many guitars to list.)

He said he doesn't have an electric yet

You could even go with a HSS Strat(have to stretch your budget just a little or go used), an Epiphone LP/SG or a used Jackson DXMG/DKMG

Any of those guitars are solid plus it gives you enough money left for the micro cube which is a sweet little practice amp when you are on a budget.


EDIT:
I misread your post and thought you said you played metal.

The guitars are still solid but you might want to look at the

instead of the microcube, I hear its a bit better for rock and blues than the cube
