Stagg Fat S. Check out staggmusic.com. It costs like $180. It is really awesome, though.

Ok, there's six pages to this thread, and I've only read the last page, so maybe I missed this topic. I've been playing guitar for about 4-5 months. How do I learn to play solos? I know the major scale, and am improving at the minor scale, but I still don't have a clue how to do solos. Thanks!

In Christ,
Adam P.

I second the Peavy Raptor Plus EXP. It was my first guitar as well; cheap, but reliable. Only problem i ever had was the sound jack came loose and went inside the guitar...had to use a pair of tweezers to get it back out and tighten it back on...
Other than that, no problems, decent sound for a guitar that's only $140 brand new.
Doesn't look too bad, either.

The Tele counterpart was also an excellent guitar as well.

Anyway, if your daddy's rich and spending $2000 is no big deal, you could get a Gibson Les Paul. Otherwise, a Gibson les Paul is not a good beginner's guitar. It's an expensive guitar for starting a hobby that you don't yet know if you'll stick to.

They were conspicuous by their absense.

I never aligned with the idea that you should start guitar with the idea that you may very well not stick with it. I think most parents jinx their kid's chances with that kind of thinking, often opting for crappy instruments, more to minimalize their lose rather than promote their kid's potential excellence.

Of course, that said, I don't think spending a grand is the way to go in terms of starting. An MIM Strat will definitely do the job at a fraction of cost.

i agree. you shouldnt approach something with that kind of thinking, though its possible that it may not be your thing. its a gamble either way-- if you put money down on a not great guitar and you end up liking it, it just means that you may have to upgrade sooner than if you put down money on a good guitar.

Of course, if you're getting a really good deal on the Gibson, then it's not a bad choice.
