Good, Cheap Guitar
 
I WANT TO BUY A GOOD GUITAR BUT I HAVE A TIGHT BUDGET ($250 MAX). DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A GOOD GUITAR THAT I SHOULD CHECK OUT?

for that ammount of money you can only buy shitty guitars. sorry to break the hard news to you man.

This calls for two words. PAWN SHOP. No, but seriously - here are afew I came up w/ although Im not sure about the price tags.

like Ibanez? A cheaper version is a brand called X-cort. These people make Ibanez but they are cheaper - Ibanez only costs more because of the name on it.(with exceptions). Fender? Get a squier. Cheaper - Im not sure if they're any good but eh.
But of course you can always get a good ole trusty acoustic. Takamine makes some nice acoustics under 250$. If I was you I'd look for some of the less known brands caz they usually cost less.

go second hand stuff... look for a 'maverick F-1' if possible, should be around 250 second hand, though i think its mainly UK guitar

they atre liek jackson and ibanez, IMO play better than the ibanez RG's and sound better for metal...

whatever though, i advise to go for one with a humbuckin bridge pickup unless your after the other tones from single coils

look for some with just a humbucking bridge but ya kno i dont think you got much of a choice i think your best bet is save up because shitty guitars arnt fun to play on lol

Pawn Shops are a good way to go...my first guitar was a Hondu-H77 for $25...and no im not forgeting the 0 after 25...It was a piece of shit but i bought a screamin demon humbucker for the bridge and i put a hot rail on it and it still sounded like shit....so, save up your 250 and buy something worthy of playing:beer:

YEAH, YOU GUYS HAVE GIVEN ME GREAT TIPS. I REALLY LIKE SOME OF THE X-CORTS I'VE SEEN AND THE MAVERICK IS GREAT BUT I DON'T THINK I CAN GET IT HERE. MY FIRST GUITAR COST ME $65, IT WAS A MONTEREY FERNANDEZ WITHOUT THE SUSTAINER. IT ACTUALLY SOUNDED PRETTY GOOD. BUT ANYWAY MY BUDGET HAS GROWN (HAIL XXX-MAS:vampire: ) NOW I HAVE $360. SO FAR I'M LEANING TOWARDS A JACKSON WARRIOR. I MIGHT TRY TO FIND ONE ONLINE BUT IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY OTHER TIPS OR OPINIONS I WELCOME THEM. THANKS \m/
