Hiya all.

Well, I decided to start learning guitar, and besides minor bleeding from my pinky and horrible soreness, I'm making pretty decent progress.

My problem is, I'm mostly a metal/hard rock kinda guy, so the guitar I currently have isn't cutting it.
I'm using an Arie Diamond Hollow Body, which doesn't make for very good metal. I have a decent amp and all that good stuff.

So, I need a new guitar, preferably on the cheap. I can get up to about $200 right now for a new one, or would you suggest I wait to get a better quality?

I'm currently looking at this guitar, Squier Bullet as its pretty cheap, and would allow me to either mod it out, or save up for a better amp...?

Thanks!

I think that the Squier Bullet is a good choice. A better choice would be an SG G-400. On the link below is a great SG G-400 guitar for sale (it's not mine, but I bought one from ebay just like this one) It is an awesome guitar with awesome sound and I love it.

Right now I'm using an Arie Diamon Hollow Body, if that means anything to ya.

My amp is ancient, but it can crank it out, and plus, its F'ing loud.
