What gear and where to buy for beginner?

Post by ericlanser » April 30th, 2019, 11:12 pm

Looking to learn the electric guitar and have a budget of £200. I am a complete newbie to this so know I need a guitar, pick and an amp but not sure about any extras? In terms or gear, preowned or new?

I've had someone recommend me a Ibamez grg140 or a squier, and a fender or Marshall amp. A quick Google search tells me that I would need to look at other equipment or pre owned stuff.

Any advice or what to buy and where to buy from?
