I’m a university student taking a creative writing module, and I am currently conducting research for a story that I intend to write about a musician. I’ve spent the past few weeks trying to find the name of an appropriate make and model of guitar to fit his economic background/character, but I have not had any luck, and I was hoping that someone here would be kind enough to advise me.
The guitar would need to have been available circa 1995/6 ish in the UK, and it would need to be ‘affordable’ -- something that a lower-middle-class family might buy their teenage son for Christmas (I’m thinking less than £100/$150). It does not have to be something that a ‘serious’ musician would choose (i.e. it can be a bit of a rubbish one: in fact, the more rubbish the better). Also, if possible, it would be great if someone could recommend me a guitar by a brand that would be recognizable to a musical ‘layman’ that fits all these criteria, but I am open to any suggestions.
Ideally the guitar would be an electric one.
