You got a 50W amp? Thats awesome, hope you dont wake your neighbours up lol This guitar is awesome but it might acutally cost more than what it is because of that pickguard. The pickguard is not really necessary, scratches from picks happen only if you are too rough, so its your wish to either go for a guitar with or without pickguard.

Also i think its a 22 fret version, try to get a 24 fret version(maybe 24 fret version without pick guard), it is really useful when you want to be a lead guitarist Also have some money left to buy a distortion pedal, reverb, overdrive. These are the most common pedals needed for rock and metal.

if you are gonna play stuff like that you should consider a stratocaster with a humbucking pickup or a telecaster thay can do pretty much anything with the right setup (speaking from experience) although a telecaster might be a bit too uncomfortable for a new player due to the fact that it's a wooden plank with strings on it. idk mens it's up to you 😎👍👍👍👍

id look at squire of harley benton if youre in europe. something like this thomann.de/gb/fender_sq_cv_60s_strat_3_s.. or something like this since he apparently doesnt like the classic strat look thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_fusion_ii_hh..
2020-10-29 14:17
Under 500 Euros, i'd get a 50s classic vibe stratocaster from squier. i don't know the availability in russia, but i've only heard good things about them, with the general consensus being that they are even better than most MIM stratocasters.

I'd suggest a HSS or a telecaster. They both have a wide range of sound so you can play everything you want to some degree. After playing for some time you can buy or trade to get a strat or a les paul. But to be honest it's your choice. Look guitar comparisons on youtube and decide for yourself. edit: looks like H0TDOGG said the same thing as me also HSS:(single coil single coil humbucker)

I was looking at cheaper option like yamaha pacifica 112v with HSS but the look of les paul is something out of this world, I will take some time to decide, thank you :D

Save yourself some bucks and get a Squire Guitar. Cheap but very nice quality.

dude, once you start learning you'll realize that guitars are very different when it comes to styles. if you want to rock some metal, go for flying v or a sg model if you want to play hard rock, or heavy melodies, than the Les Paul models are good for it. If you want something more jazz/classical type OR you're not really sure and looking for something more flexible, go for Stratocaster models If you want indie, new rock and such, Telecaster is what you want My point is, don't focus too much on getting a good and final guitar, go for the reliable and cheap because in no time and with much more knowledge you'll want to change it pretty quickly.

I just want a guitar that I won't have to change in few years that's why I'm looking at more expensive options :D

then Stratocaster is 100% the way to go. No model will be more versatile. Les Pauls are awesome, good looking and usually pretty good but they are heavy and a bit rough too, when playing certain styles, it'll sound a bit forced. This can be compensated with a good set of pedals, but I do suggest something simpler on the first steps. The thing is, unless you're a poor cuck like me, you won't ever "change" guitars, you will just keep buying more and more, so by this, it makes sense to go for something cheaper right now.. I still have my first lady, a $80 bucks Steinberger.. total piece of shit, as dull as it gets, sounds awful.. i love'r so much <3 images-americanas.b2w.io/produtos/01/00/.. now, i settled for this super strato sexy bomb: assets.catawiki.nl/assets/2020/5/11/8/e/..

I myself started with a Squire classic vibe 50's model. Really an amazing guitar for that price range. you can also look up the 60' and 70' series. Cheap but pretty solid for beginners.

I would say, If you want a les paul : musicsquare.de/195382_LTD-EC-256-FM-DBSB.. But my personal preference is :musicsquare.de/170959_Ibanez-RG-421AHM-B..
2020-10-29 14:07

2020-10-29 16:21
This guitar is great, however, suitable for styles such as hard rock, blues, heavy... if you like sounds like funk, reggae, pop it would be interesting for you to seek a strato... has the telecaster too... everything will depend on the musical style you like.

Nice! Your first instrument ? My friend also plays an acoustic but I always wanted an electric guitar.

Depends what kind of music you are going to play, do u take it seriously... Epiphone les paul is good choice for beginner, u can play everything with that guitar, but u will lack some power after time. Maybe its better to save some more money and buy something really good?

I want to play mainly rock and blues. I also want to play some industrial metal and try jazz and country music. Lack some power ? What do you mean by that ? Is this guitar not enough in terms of specs ? I don't want to go pro or play in a band or something serious, I just want a new hobby and play songs that I want for myself :D

Like I said les pauls are pretty verstaile, u can play all kinds of music with them. 'Power' is kind of wood guitar is made of + pick ups play big role+ some more I am not aware of. The one u linked has some no names pick ups- sound will be worse than in expensive equivalent. If u are beginner and plan to play at home u can get that guitar, its not that much of difference and u will be fine.

Mens you will not be using ur amp at home, will you? Personally I've got a 20W one and i'd say it's more than enough xd. Also I like ESP and maybe some Jackson guitars as well. They're quite aggressive and are perfect for heavy music. I remember how I dreamed about the original Les Paul guitar when I was young, but it was too expensive, so i bought my first Ibanez for like 900$ and it gave me a lot of fun. It was in 2010 and dollar was like 30 roubles, so I guess times have changed and now you can't buy a good guitar for 27k rub. I didn't notice it before actually
2020-10-29 16:26
OP check reverb.com for used guitars sold by actual musicians and players. IDK about shipping to your country but you can snag a nicer guitar for less money if you don't mind buying used. Epiphone Les Paul is fine if you prefer it but I find LP guitars to be too heavy (I like playing standing up with a strap). They are great guitars for blues, lots of forms of rock, and jazz and metal to an extent. IDK I've always preferred strats or super strat style guitars. If I was starting out guitar again I'd probably get an RG450 model Ibanez, but a Floyd Rose double locking tremolo can be a bit much to learn all at once. If you consider yourself smart and want to do some research/watch videos you can figure out a floyd rose easily, but they are notorious for newbies... adding more levels of complexity to the tuning and how to change strings. external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=ht.. they also have fixed bridge models. sweetwater.com/store/detail/GRG121DXMGS-.. IMO Ibanez has really good build quality in general for their cheaper models compared to Squier, Epiphone and other brands (you can find some really nice Squier,epiphones but I'd recommend playing them in person, no-no buying online)
2020-10-29 16:34
I'd suggest looking for Japanese made guitars, even if it is a bit more expensive or looks a little uglier, it's build will be tons better than any Chinese replicas. Also if you can I'd suggest testing guitar types in real life, cause shape, neck type etc. differs from guitar to guitar, and you need to find the comfiest one when you are starting. Edit: "In real life", worded poorly, but ye testing it like "having it in hands" haha.

+1 this is a huge one. You can even find a 2000$ guitar that plays very differently from one model to another (poor QC though). I've ordered 3 instruments online since Covid and not had to return any luckily. My 5 string bass literally was shipped in tune. I opened it and it was in tune lol... like in tune on my pedal chromatic tuner... wtf. if you buy from reputable places they are less likely to have "dud" instruments.
