i'm looking to buy an electric guitar and i'm wondering what the best choice is.

also i'm looking to buy an amp that isn't too expensive but good quality

.........also........ any other stuff i might need to get started... just the very basic other than a guitar would be great to know.

thanx

Well there isn't much to do with that budget....... maybe that $200 Squier starter kit

I was gonna rant at how the guy doesnt even specify what kinda music he likes but 150-200 pretty much leaves no choice : P

I'd say for starters, yamaha Pacifica 012 is pretty nice. SERIOUSLY better than those lower end squiers like bullet or affinity. MIGHT be able to find one at like 120ish on ebay
maybe spend the remaining 80 bucks for a small practice amp and a cable??
I mean, to get started those are pretty much all you need.... ok and maybe a pick

the best thing i can recommend, though, is to save up some more and buy something like used Fender mexi strat or higher end squiers like classic vibe or vintage modified

200 bucks budget pack run out of their taste REALLY quickly

Yeah, you gotta pull it out of beginners.

No offense to TS.


I'd also say buy used. Better gear for a cheaper price.
