Well don't get an expensive used guitar I learned the hard way. The guitar place sold me a $300 used guitar that had a broken floyd rose so If I were U just make sure u'r 150% sure the guitar is working correct and it feels comfortable to YOU!! But ur selection sounds good though biggrin.gif






Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get whatever guitar feels and plays the best to you within your price range. But if you want to see what other people had to say about a particular guitar, look it up using the link below. Remember, these are just people's opinions.....if it sounds too good to be true, it's probably someone justifying their purchase by saying it's the greatest guitar ever made / "rooting for the home team".....if it sounds too bad to be true, it's probably someone who is a fan of the brand's competitor (e.g., if they say that a Stratocaster is the worst guitar ever, check their gear and you'll probably find a Les Paul)....if it sounds like a balanced evaluation (i.e. "here's what's good about it, here's what sucks"), pay attention, because those are the most honest reviews.

A Stratocaster is generally regarded as a good guitar for whatever you want to play...some regard it as the best. So it's a pretty reliable purchase. But "Roland Ready" means it has MIDI hardware on it, and you'll probably be paying extra for that....so if you're not planning on using your guitar to record MIDI, you might want to look into some other Stratocasters (if that's an option) and avoid paying more for an option that you won't use....if you're not familiar with MIDI, check out the link below.

All that being said.....between those two, I'd take the Strat hands down, especially if you like Gilmour and Hendrix....both were primarily Strat players.

Very true - and if you want to sound like either of those you'll struggle to get the right tone if you go with a different guitar - won't make any difference to your learning pace, or technique to start with, but it just won't sound quite right if you are trying to get the exact sound of either.
