Hi everyone, any ideas for a guitar for a beginner ? Don't want to spend a lot at present, but sure there are some great starter models that won't break the bank. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

It would be useful to know what your budget is to start with.

Pretty much what rogue said; no budget, no cigar.

I'd recommend an Epiphone, maybe, or a budget Jackson. But I don't know anything, I'm just waiting for Godlike to come in and give you an essay on Korean guitars.

I dont know the Epiphone, but i own a Jackson RR3 and from stock it has everything you will need for PURE metal at every level. Even the stock Seymour Duncan are providing you with enough grunt to get a true metal soud out of it.

So instead of a new guitar, i'd go for a second hand RR3.

Just go to a pawn shop and find one that has a straight neck, good action and clean pots. By the time you've mastered your instrument you'll have replaced the pick ups in it and have several high end models that you can't live without. Have fun with it, but beware... Buying new equipment is very addictive.
