Evening, I am a longstanding member of Basschat, the sister forum to here, and need some advice. Please be polite to the low end dude!
My sister has volunteered me to advise my nephew on buying an electric guitar and start kit. I have no knowledge of such things, however as I went straight to bass and have never even played a guitar.
Can someone please a reasonable guitar for upto say £500 and what amp to get (perhaps for gigs at some point but currently for use in student digs / home). Power? Make? Preferred speaker size etc. Anything I might need to know to help him out. What pedals, if any, should he buy as a starter?
His music taste is what I would call rock, but he believes is metal.
