Hey there everyone. This is my first post at the jemsite forums, which i think are going to help me alot in my "quest" for increased knowledge and skill in guitars and the skills accompanied by them..
Enough with the bull already. Im Roland, i live in Sweden, and i am 15 years old. Im in a deeply ****ty situation. (This has to do with my future request for advices.) I've gotten a work offer at a hotel with 100€ salary PER WEEKEND, but my mother wont let me work there since she thinks that it's "too dangerous". This brings me to another point: I have NO SOURCE at all to get money from, and that means that any future electric guitar which is going to be purchased is going to have to be bought through my parents wallet. That means, no second shot.
I've been playing guitar for roughly two years, i know my fair share of theoretics, (Thanks to the BEAUTIFUL guitar-lessons on this thread! I learned more here on this forum about theoretics in 15 minutes than i did in two 130€ guitar-class terms á 10 lessons each!) but i've almost not even touched an electric guitar (School, but seriously, that doesn't count.) which means that i don't know jack-**** about terms in the world of electro-guitar-mastery.
Here comes the real pulp of my post. I am going to buy a 7-string guitar (Well, that actually hangs on how i perform in school, so my balls are on the line here, guys.) as my first electric guitar, since i know getting a 6-string is worthless if i want to play downtuned stuff (ŕ Slipknot, Mudvayne and the likes. Dont mock me for my taste in music.
) because it feels like playing on f***ing rubber-bands and the strings keep hitting the frets, alas, a 6-string is DEFINATELY out of the question. So, my question is, what guitar should i get? Im looking for something that won't burn a significantly large hole in my parent's wallet. Im looking for something in the 600-800€ range. Though i can chip in with about 200€, so the absolute maximum roof of the guitar cost has to be 1,000€, but most preferrably beneath that. Thanks in advance for the help.

P.S: Im asking you to have patience with me for my eventual greenish questions about electric guitars.
P.S.2: (No, not Playstation2. Computers kicks console ass.) Any tips on amps and distorsion devices are also strongly encouraged.
