Esp Ltd MH-50

I think taht esp ltd mh 50 is a guitar with everything you need to play for several years. Itīs such cheap (293 euros, I donīt know about $:s).
Theres 24 jumbo frets , two humbuckers and a floyd rose bridge. Itīs more
better than traditional vibration bridge and those humbuckers will give a heavy sound.

I heard the BC Rich guitars are very heavy. I'm assuming the thread starter is in his early teens? That makes the BC Rich even less suitable.

If you're gonna chose a starter kit, I guess that Ibanez one would be good. Probably better than the Squier and the BC Rich.

Just go to a music shop and get a friend, or the sales person, to play some different guitars and amps and chose the ones that sound best and are within your price range.

Agree completely with Cannibal Corpse. To a beginner it really doesn't matter if he can't pull of diminished arpeggios from the 19th fret up because of the bolt-on neck joint. Somebody new to playing guitar wouldn't simply know the difference between neckthrough and a bolt-on, all he'd do was pay too much for a NT guitar. A beginner needs a good guitar, something that's fun to play and not a complete piece of junk. Advanced features are for the advanced player, who knows what he's paying for.

Do you have any friends or relatives who play the guitar?

Because if you do, you can get them to go along to the store and help you chose. Then you won't be ripped off.

I actualy just meant Who gives a shit if its a bolt on in general. Just because its a bolt on doesnt mean its a bad guitar.

I came here after Ozzfest 2004 in Camden, seeing if anybody else had been there and seen Rob Halford sing in Ozzy's place (I searched on google and found this site).

Also, I have decided that I want the Ibanez IJS40 Starter Pack, as it got a large amount of good reviews, all it needs is a bigger amp and one guy said he had a problem where things sounded scratchy like a cell phone, but all he needed was a new cable, and one guy had a problem with his 3rd string, but nobody else seemed to have any of those problems, so I suspect them to be a fault with their product, and a few people said the tuner was a POS.

Also, there was a nice, long review that I read

Jul 19, 2003 - A while ago, I became interested in guitars and decided I wanted to play guitar myself. I researched the guitar, read reviews, and asked store retailers about various guitars, famous guitarists and the equipment they play, and what guitars sound and play well. I considered several guitar beginner value packages, including two Ibanez packs, two Squier packs, a Peavey guitar package, and yet another package from ESP. I had narrowed my selection down to two: (a) the Squier StratPak, and (b) the Ibanez JS40 Jumpstart package. I purchased the Ibanez package in early May. When I received my guitar (a very nice Metallic Red color), I was very pleased. The finish is nice, the two single-coil, one humbucking pickup configuration sounds good, the neck is smooth and feels good, the action is good, and the fret and nut work is very good for a value-priced guitar. But most importantly, the guitar is enjoyable to play. In the few months I've been playing, I have continued to practice many riffs and chords with my guitar, and have progressed very well. My only complaint is very minor; the strings that come with the guitar aren't great, so I replaced mine with Ernie Ball strings and they play well. This may be the best beginner package you can buy. The guitar that comes with this package is better than the guitar in the Squier packs; I've played them both. The amp that comes with the pack is awesome. It sounds good clean, and has roaring, excellent distortion. The other included items, such as the gig bag, tuner, cable, strap, video, picks, and booklet are all quality accesories. If you purchase this package, you will not be disappointed. It is a great value at a great price.

Really, the only bad thing you could do when buying your first guitar is buying an expensive guitar and not play it. So this guitar is a good choice really. Any guitar would be good.

I started playing guitar when I was 14 too.....and I fucking love it more today than I ever have. I would def. recommend getting an Ibanez guitar. They have good starter guitars as long as you don't get something less than $200. If you have to wait to get an amp because the guitar you want is more than say 3 or 4 hundred...you should. There is nothing worse I think than first starting to play guitar, falling in love with it, and than realizing you are stuck with a shitty guitar. Be smart about it.
