    It’s a real nice guitar, and will definitely rock out for you, but if you’re looking for cleaner tones, you may want to get a Mexican Fender strat, and have a humbucker pickup put in the bridge position. This way, you can have all the rock out potential of the humbucker plus the cleaner tones of the single coil pickups.

    Im 13 and really want a Ibanez-RG3EXFM1, but is it a good buy for me? My first electric, but I’ve played guitar for about a year and a half. Is it worth the price of 350? And if not can you point me to a better one? I like heavy distortion but I want to be able to play clean to, not anything muddy though. Help?

    Cort used to be a good brand back in the early 80′s.(I think the Bangles used to play some Cort guitars) Not sure about anything new. .

    What about a ESP LTD M-10 Electric Guitar

    Probably anything by Fender, Dean, Yamaha, or Epiphone would be O.K. for a starter. I wouldn’t spend any less than $200, though, as the real cheap stuf will fail…

    Should be O.K. If you wanna really rock out, make sure your amp has a real good distortion/overdrive channel.

    Sure. As long as it plays well, and there are no electronic problems, it’ll be fine

    HI,
    Can Epiphone LP 100 be a good start ? I’ve never had an electric guitar before, just acoustic.
    Thanks!

    It is hit or miss quality wise I would get an Epiphone,Squier or Ibanez all are good and you can get one for 100-200 bucks but go to a Guitar Center or Sam Ash (music store) and play one try it out first then decide what you like.Don’t go to Walmart,Best Buy or Costco ect.

    The Ibanez jampack IJV50 is an exellent guitar and Yamaha are really good to as are Squier and Epiphone you can get a good beginner guitar for 100-200 bucks.

    The Starcaster by Fender is poor China Quality too they are as bad as these brands J.B. Player,Barcelona,Trinity River,Crescent all these brands have tuning problems,intonation issues and very high action as well as some with warped necks.Do not buy on Ebay go to a Guitar Center or Sam Ash or other store that specializes in musical instruments. Costco,Walmart and Best Buy steer away from. First Act are junk too.

    The Starcaster is a piece of junk a Squier is way better also for 100-200 Indiana or SX (Fender copies are good to) Yamaha are exellent even the 150.00 F335 is good quality for a low end beginner acoustic guitar that is your best bet for acoustic.I have one and have had it for 7 years great guitar all around.
