..looking for first Washburn or Squier
Hi all. I am currently 22 and looking into guitars.
I'm planning on leaning the guitar and have been looking into a few guitars. I am looking for a first electric guitar and have a few ideas. If nothing else decent turns up, I might end up getting a Squier Standard Strat or Tele. They're popular and quite afforable in the UK. Some of the Washburns also look good, though I am looking for something that does more than rock. I am looking for something that can do a range of stuff, possibly including jazz, blues and maybe 80's music. I am planning on spending about Â£200 or preferably less I am looking for something that I won't outgrow too quickly, and would prefer not to spend too much on something like a Fender, at least not yet...
Are there cheap amps out there that are good for practicing and don't make too much (excessive) noise?

Have you checked out the Oscar Schmidt Delta King by Washburn?
I have one. It's a great guitar. 8)
As far as amps, yes, they make a number of small practice amps that are very affordable. I don't own any, but you can find them listed at any online guitar store.

Roland makes some really good practice amps in the lower price range. Behringer's V-Tone amp series isn't bad either.
Our songs also have the standard pop format: Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, bad solo. All in all, I think we sound like The Knack and the Bay City Rollers being molested by Black Flag and Black Sabbath.
Welcome to Guitar Noise.
For a very effective, versatile and most importantly FUN setup for home or small gigs...
Squier '51: $100 USD (Can sound hot or similar to Strat and Tele)
Behringer V-amp 2: $100 USD or most any 5-15W amp if the neighbors don't care
AKG Headphones: $100 USD
Connected to the computer: priceless in any denomination.
In my mind, while playing this setup I can be anybody I want to be. :oops:
Heaven help anyone else who hears it. :twisted:

a roland mocrocube might be a good first amp. there is also a small 10 watt marshall. orange makes a 15 watt amp.
