Hey all, I've been playing an acoustic guitar for a while and was looking for a cheap but not break in 5 seconds electric guitar to buy (whether by online order or a store). Also, whats a giood but cheap amp to buy?

There is a sticky for this, but it's not THAT good so I'll just help you out.

I'm assuming you want an electric because from the word "cheap" to "Also" I had no idea what you said. Roland microcube is a good cheap amp. Obviously not the best amp out there, but you can get whatever style of music you play from the little thing.

As for a guitar, you're going to need to tell us your budget.

Get one of those starter packs that Ibanez, Gibson, and Fender sell.


I looked at some of the comments for those online and alot of people say they suck. And Metal yes I meant an electric (not bass^) guitar, sorry for not being clear.

Well... you get what you pay for... what do expect for a $200 pack that gives you the amp, guitar, picks and all... it was something to look at. But, I got my Strat for $400, and damn is it amazing, just save up.

I wouldn't consider that guitar a cheap one. What's you budget? What styles do you gonna play the most?. Are you interested of learning heavy soloing (instrumental stuff)?
Besides being a guitar player, I'm a big fan of the guitar. I love that damn instrument. Steve Vai

Maybe take a look at the Yamaha PAC series and a Roland Microcube.

Or if you want to spend a little more, personally I'd check out used stuff. You can find some great deals on some pretty good guitars with really nothing wrong but a few scuffs here and there.

either get a gibson/fender etc starter pack,or get a strat clone...my friend's got a strat clone called "encore"...which is pretty good,been playing it for 7 month's and its still working as if new.

if you're willing to spend 500 $ on just the guitar there's a lot better ones that u can get for that price range than a strat. Go for the schecter c-1 fr. same price, better floyd and better pickups. Ever since gibson and fender have become the 2 major guitar companies their crap is incredibly over priced.

Now I just started playing guitar a few days ago when I got my first guitar which was an electric and I can only play the riffs for Smoke on The Water and Sunshine of Your Love so I might be the best person to take advice from but anyway...

I got a Ibanez GAX30 and a Peavey RAGE 158 Amplifier. Cost a total of about US$316. The hardware is sound, workmanship is great and it sounds good for rock and metal.

My budget is anywheres from $700 down. I'm mostly interested in a semi-heavy rock thing (kinda like grunge). So I guess soloing would be good.

and ac/dc that guitar looks pretty good, what makes it better than the one I posted earlier, though?

Yeah, $700 isn't cheap. Well, at least to me it's pretty expensive. I would take a look at Schecters or Jacksons in that range. They make some really fantastic guitars in that range.
