I'm looking into Electric guitars as my parents have said that if I want one they'll get one for me at Christmas (awesomes ) but am not really sure of stores, good makes to buy, qualities etc. I've tried a couple and decided I prefer the heavier Les Paul humbuckers' sound to the Strats (I also prefer the styling, personally). My budget is mid range in around the £200-300 mark for the guitar. Will need an ok amp and cable as well (doesn't have to be absolutely amazing just decent enough, same goes for the guitar) so any help with that will be appreciated. Oh, I did find 1 guitar I kinda fell in love with but its a model that I don't think I can find to try somewhere in my area (feel like I should try the guitar to check I can deal with the fretboard etc. alright) Its a Tokai ALS48 in "Dark Cherryburst" Price tag of £299 on that site which seems a bit high as I seem to remember finding the same model guitar elsewhere for £249 but can't find anywhere with a similar colour. I know substance and price should come before style but I love that damn colour. Anyway, just thought I'd see whether any Tempers had an idea of some good, mid-range guitars, amps etc.
