The OFFICIAL 'I need help buying a guitar' Thread

Ok, so I've seen alot of threads made where people want help buying a new guitar, so instead of making a thread on it, post it in this one. Whether it be suggestions for a new guitar, or help chosing between guitars and so forth, post it here instead of making a thread on it.

great idea

Now, let be the first to actually utilize this-

i play left handed and need to know a good second guitar, a pretty standard request, but i need to know what companies actually make left handed models

i was think along the lines of ibanez, or jackson

I'll suggest a Jackson, cause I have one, and its really good, and its my second electric guitar for me too. A Jackson would be really good, also, I hear alot of good things about Carvin's these days, they make lefty's too. But Carvins are very very pricey.

Whats 300E in American? You need to be a little more specific, is this going to be your 2nd guitar or what? What companies do you like? What things in a guitar do you like and want to have in the new one?

thats for sure, also, low end jacksons arent that great either, dont get a jackson xt series (it might be an ok guitar, but it could also be complete crap)

i think for that 300euro price u should look for a ibanez, since they have pretty good guitars, even in the lower price models) also look for some secondhands, u might find a higher class guitar 2nd hand for the same money as a lower class guitar new.

300 is like $420. ackson JS30 series(available as a V, RR, Warrior, Kelly, or Dinky with a Floyd Rose) go for $300 new, and you'd still have enough left over for some new pickups.

Thumbs up

Yeah thanks for your help
I think I will get an Jackson JS30 or an Ibanez like the GRG 170 DX.
Without this Thread soon I would play a B.C.......

$250 and less, haha

My axe is fucked to hell and i need something new, so within that price range, what would you say? Something well suited for extreme metal (technical death). What are your thoughts on the Washburn 7 string that goes for 189.99 ?

I'm looking to buy a secondary guitar. The only reason I want another is to have more flexibility with tunings. Ie> use one for E, Eb and D, use the other for C, C#, Bb, and A#.

So as you can figure, I'm not willing to spend much. In fact I actually want something cheaper than my current guitar. The max I'll spend is about $120-150. Seriously, I don't need anything fancy, but I'm not going to buy a plywood axe either. Just a good old 6-string with a low profile neck.

Some of those guitars at Rondomusic seem very appealing but none of them are well known brands. I found this Ibanez RG going for $130 on ebay and I'm heavily considering it, as it usually goes for like $300 new.

Can anyone reccomend any Ibanez's/other cheaper better known brand guitars that suit my needs? Just any "standard" fixed bridge(or tremolos with a locking nut) 6 strings in that price range. Any help is greatly appreciated.
