Okay so there's this person on craigslist that has been trying to sell this guitar for a few months now. He's lowered his price from 500 to now 250... He dropped it 50 dollars this week and I've had my eye on it for a while. It looks to be in good condition from the one picture.

Anyways I'm a beginner and I've had a squier strat for a few months now - not a bad guitar. Not great. It's actually not even mine but my brothers.

Should I buy this? Is it a good guitar for a beginner?

By the way I've been pretty serious about guitar (self-motivated a lot) so I probably won't be in the 'beginner' area for too long.

Also, picture of the guitar on craigslist:
Great for a beginner. If you have the money, go for it!

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
