This kind of Ibanez maybe?  http://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/electric_guitars_detail.asp?stock=04030217253418

Looks well specced for the money to me. I might have missed this, but do you have an amp in mind?

Anyone else got any experience of the Jacksons or Ibanez models mentioned?
I'm back - am I the same person or just a clone of myself?

Wow David, it just shows how much guitar you can get for very little outlay.

Wish it was like this when I stated out , it was more of a plank and fencing wire for strings  :)

love the look of that one , and its fully loaded  :D

Thanks David,

Amp wise I have my heart pretty much set on a Blackstar ID Core 10. Retails for 89 quid. Small & compact enough for home use only, decent stereo surround sound and has the effects I'd need to start (going by reviews and youtube vid reviews)

The blackstar sounds like a great choice. That ability to record yourself via USB is a really nice bonus in an amp like that.

I heartily recommend using that feature to record yourself pretty early on your journey. Maybe after three months or so... Its not for you to share with anyone else but I've enjoyed being able to go back a bit and listen to what I used to sound like...
I like to spell peddant with two Ds. That always annoys them.

Thanks Daniel!

Thinking of the Core 10, but might even go for the 20?

Cheers,
Simon  :)

Johnny's right - that Ibanez look like a lot of Axe for the money.  So do the Jacksons...

If your amp is for home use then 10 watts is likely to be plenty.  Even if you have other musicians with you (see below....).

In my experience the key point when you are likely to think "damn, not enough power" is when there is a real live drummer with a real live kit involved!  My son plays a drum kit which is in the spare room and if we jam then I have to grit my teeth, hope the neighbours don't complain and use the same amp I use for gigs.  Otherwise a little battery powered Roland Cube (6w maybe?) does the job beautifully.  Loud enough for rehearsal in a room with me, a piano and four vocalists to practice.

Great food for thought David!
Id core 10 should be perfect then.
30 quid cheaper too  ;)
