i"m asking alot of quostions but i think thats what the forum is all about
What I would suggest you do is give us a few examples of bands whose guitar sounds you like. If you have a budget in mind (how much you want to spend) that can help us find you the best possible thing in your price range.
Also - what do you play now? If you've learned on a Squier, you are automatically going to be more comfortable on a Fender style guitar. Conversely if you've been playing an Epiphone up until now, a Gibson style guitar is going to be more your taste. If you're starting out, or have played and are comfortable on both, then the field is wide open.
Generally for flexibility, I recommend looking at a "Superstrat something" with a humbucker at the bridge and two single-coil pickups. That gives you a good range of tones: crunchy rhythm stuff and high gain leads from the bridge pickup; the cleaner, lower powered "in-between" tones from the single coils (great for cleaner rhythms and clean funky leads); and the thicker, but still articulate sound of the neck single-coil. Ahh... I'm gettin' all warm and fuzzy myself, just thinkin' about it ;D
Unless you know you need one, you probably don't need a floating bridge like a Floyd Rose. If you know you will never use a trem you can look at hardtail models, but don't discount a Strat-type trem. They are great for most things, and if you don't need it, you ignore it and it doesn't affect your playing or tone in any way.
That's all I can think of for now, but do give us as much info as you can and we'll help you find the best guitar for your money.
Oh, yes - don't forget to check the guitarforum.co.za classifieds
. There were a couple of good guitars there when I last looked.
