    Budget and first guitar.

    i thought epiphone-les-paul standard is cool guitar to start with but i found it cost like 4.5k L.E (Egyptian Pound)

    So it's a lot of money lol cannot afford it now.

    So wanted to know the best -humbucker- guitar/kit that cost from 0-$200 (0-2K L.E).

    There are other Epiphone Les Pauls you can go with other than the Standard. The Special series are very affordable

    You didn't say there were only 4 you could get, you asked what was the best that cost from $0-$200.

    Out of those 4, either of the LTD would be the best choice in my opinion. They are both fixed bridge guitars that will offer the widest range of tunings without blocking the bridge, though any of them will work.

    since you are in Egypt I would check out this site *** to many more options as the Harley Benton(Thomann house brand) are
    pretty decent instruments on the cheap...Thomann is the LARGEST guitar distributer in these parts

    Single Cut models
    http://www.thomann.de/intl/lp_models...arley%20Benton

    Double Cut Models
    http://www.thomann.de/intl/sg_models...arley%20Benton

    & perhaps these buyer guides will help you make an informative choice as a guitar that'll work well for you

    My Squier Bullet Strat works just fine with RockSmith, you can block the tremolo easily enough,but it has single coil pickups. Humbuckers will work better with RockSmith.

    My suggestion would be

    At this range I would Say Seismic Audio - SADIYG-05 would be best option. The density of this guitar pulls out sort of a deeper tone which I like. The tone sounds amazing. Only problem I would say that I had was the length of the wires it came with.

    That works with rocksmith

    Fender Squier 0310001506 workds best with rocksmith tuning stability is not very promising, while performing don't forget to check tuning in between each song. But at this price, this is one of the [URL="https://priceunder.in/acoustic-guitar-in-india/"]best guitars[/URL] for beginners.

    I recently picked up a 2019 Squier Bullet/FSR Telecaster at Guitar Center for $150 which is tough to beat to be honest. There were some minor issues and I added a ton of upgrades to it but for anyone that's on a budget it's a great guitar. I think you'll find the Tele is a lot more versatile than a lot of other guitars also.

    I wasn't crazy about the tuners but they did work and hold tune. Next was the top of the frets, very rough but you can either crown them or simply play it a lot and they'll wear down smooth fairly quickly. Those were the only OTB (Out Of The Box) issues which are relatively minor. Pickups are ALNICO which sound pretty decent.

    Definitely would recommend this particular model for anyone that has a limited budget.

    Even with the tax and shipping it should put it right into your ideal cost range and it's actually a decent guitar.
