Hi guys,

I am just starting my summer hols (4 wks of bliss!!) and wanna buy a cheap guitar to take to the summer cottage, for use outside and stuff. Something that is good enough to be enjoyable to practice on but not so expensive that I care too much about it. My requirements are:less than 500€, fixed bridge, suitable for rock and metal, pretty flat fingerboard radius (14"ish). If I can manage a neck-thru that would be a bonus. Shops round here have Ibanez, ESP, Gibson, Fender, Jackson, Epi..Yamaha, few others.

So, anyone got any recommendations?

What do you mean for use outside etc ?? Should it be acoustic or electric guitar ?

How about an inexpensive hollow body jazzy electric one?
You can hear it whilst playing outside, but it still feels electric enough to make you at home with it.
Ibanez makes some good ones, as does Epiphone.

Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

Sorry, when I said I would use it outside I just wanted to give an indication that it would not get perfect treatment, it is liable to get bashed about a bit. It will be amplified with my Roland MicroCube. I don't really want a hollow body, as said I will play mostly rock and metal on it, but thanks for the suggestions:)

Right, so in case anyone is interested, i went into 1 of the local shops and impulse bought an Ibanez ART120 for 300€. I am actually pretty impressed with the thing, tho naturally it is no quite in the same league as my home grown guitars. If anyone is interested I will post a review...

..I got the white one since they didn't have black.....
