I tend to disagree with the weight issue of the LP. Eat your greens boys. They'll harden you up and take the high pitch squeals from your voice. 4 - 5 kilos from a strap is not heavy.

I played acoustic for 30-odd years before I really connected with electrics. The reason was that I was paying way too much attention to the fancy lump of wood, and not enough to the pickups and the amp. So my advice is allocate your budget so that the amp gets a decent (I would say bigger) proportion, then fine tune the guitar selection to suit it. And have a setup done on the guitar.

Thanks for all your tips. Also gonna ask my teacher for some advice and after that I'm just going to the store to try some out and see what fits me best.
Does this thread has to be closed or something, I'm still quite new here.

Look into Godin, great handmade guitars for amazing prices, my Freeway cost me around $300, and it plays just as well as my teachers American Strat, dont know if its just me, but I prefer Godin over most fenders.
