I used to have a guitar and amp, and sold them last year for a pittance when I needed some money for my car.
As it was a Gibson Epiphone SG and a Park (by Marshall) amp, they didn't keep their value too well although both were fine for my (limited) standard of playing.
I miss having a guitar and amp around and I'm looking to buy again. I guess it's always possible I may end up selling them both in the future, so my question is this:
If I'm looking to spend £350 - £400 on an electric guitar from either Fender or Gibson, which models will be best for a beginner, and which are most likely to keep their value? Shall I buy a new guitar that's in perfect condition, or a used one where I'm not sure what I'm looking out for in terms of wear and tear.
Obviously I'll try anything out before I buy but wondered whether, say, a Mexican Fender ends up being worth the same as a Squier Fender if I were to sell it in 10yrs.
