Should I get a Les Paul, SG, or Strat?
I'd get epiphone/squier. Not gibson/fender.
Which one do you think would be best for the money?
Budget is around 350 dollars top.
I'm up for other guitar suggestions too.
I play a bunch of different styles, mostly rock or light metal.

That might work. I'm almost leaning to the les paul though. but i'm not sure
The cheapest one i can find was like, 200 on ebay. and it was like, used. bad though.
HAHAH! you have the microcube? are they good?
I was gonna buy one tonight.

Microcube is an awesome practice amp.

Save a bit extra man, always worth it. And heritage cherry sunburst, it's the way to have them

Also a friend of mine has a mircrocube. A good amp for a beginner i think (he's no beginner, he's just gone to uni, he runs a les paul though it he gets some nice sounds though)

My uncle is like, amazing with a guitar.
He says sometimes he does gigs with it.
Or he'll take it to his backyard and jam because it can run on AA's.

And about the sunburst, yeahhh. (: I wouldn't mind a gold top either. I'm just a gold freak like that. :]

The body on my les paul is SUPER heavy man! Though it's a lot heavier than any other i've ever picked up, i think because mine is in ebony... the ebony standard models dont come with a maple top = solid mahog = HEAVY
A trans finish model should be ok though, make sure to get the plus top.

If your willing to shell out the extra cash, get a Mexican made Fender Strat. If not, Squier is awful and you should go with the Epiphone Les Paul or SG. They are half decent sounding guitars.

Gigs with it? It's probably run through the PA then. It makes awesome tones for the cost and for a bedroom amp, but it lacks enough power to jam with friends.

It would be easier for you to get an answer if you made a poll. I say strat cause I own one.

Yep, just weighed it, tips the scales at around 10lbs or so

The epi studio is meant to be good FWIW

if you get a micro cube it should have enough, though if you want a boost an ibanez TS7 would be nice

Yeah, the microcube sounds good.
That'll probably be my choice for the amp.
