New Guitar Recommendation

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a new electric guitar. I'm 13. I've been playing for about a year now (and I'm pretty good for how long I've been playing - sorry I don't mean to brag. Anyway, I really like sg's, particularly the epiphone faded g400 or whatever its called at the moment. Since I'm kind of a novice, do you recomend this guitar for someone who's been playing for about a year?

Yep. Great guitar for all skill levels. It's very important to look at several (many) and pick out the one that feels/plays best for you. Some are better than others. In my opinion, the ones that have a serial number starting with "EE" are the best of the batch. Good luck with it.

Sounds right up your alley. SG's indeed rock! I'm sure the EPI equivalant is a solid buy.

 

glenn is right...check them out first if you can..unless you are dependent on mail order.

I started playing around 12 or 13 as well. At that age, I don't think you have to worry about getting something that is too large for you. That said, if you have a Guitar Center anywhere near you, try a few different models. The G-400's are very nice, but so are some of the other epis in that price range. The Dot and the Dot studio are both nice, as are the Les Pauls. I don't think you'll go wrong with any of them.

I'd say yes.

 

Get the vintage/faded G-400, and an epi valve junior combo.

For 450, that's an awesome setup.

 

Later on, a pup swap and better tubes, but for now just PLAY PLAY PLAY!!

You're 13' date=' so you don't have much money... You know what? You don't much to buy a quality guitar at a reasonable price.. But you aint gonna get it from Epiphone!

Dammit Lerxst... I wished I had a G-400 when I was starting out. Epiphones are great guitars for the money. But if you are on a budget...ehm do 'shop around'.

If that's the guitar you like you should go for it. You can only become better with a good guitar, It's a grave misconception that a novices should play on "cheap" guitars.

You're welcome...good luck, with whatever you purchase. And, I agree with McBratt....buy the best you can afford!

Better to grow into a good guitar, than grow tired and bored, with a bad one!
