Default Decision time

You guys probably get this question a lot, and I used the search but didn't find the exact answer to my questions. I'm going to buy my first electric guitar soon, but I have a few questions. I want a relatively cheap guitar as I am still a beginner. There's a few things I want in this guitar so maybe you guys can help. My budget is anywhere from $200-$400 Canadian. One big thing I want in a guitar is one that wont slip out of tune constantly because it really annoys me when I tune my acoustic guitar then have to re-tune it a few hours later. Also a guitar that holds its tune in the lower frets, Ive encountered many guitars that sound funny when you get down towards the lower part of the neck. And also a guitar that doesn't sound buzzy or give a lot of feedback, mainly tuning/tone is my biggest concern because I just want it to sound nice and clean. If anybody has any suggestions on nice sounding lower end guitars I would love to hear your experiences and thoughts

Schecter C1 - $450-500 (a little out of your price range, but Schecters are honestly worth way more than what they cost). They sound fantastic & stay in tune. You should read up on them.

you pretty much answer your question in your thread. the main thing to look for is something that stays in tune, at that price range you're not going to be seeing huge differences in quality. you have a few options for whatever tone you're hoping to get as well. most major manufacturer's offer something at that price level as well so you should be able to find something that suits your aesthetic fancy as well.

and remember...

a crappy guitar through a good amp will sound better than a good guitar through a crappy amp.
