I've been playing guitar for around 7 months and im looking for a new guitar to buy. As of now i have a squier strat and i have around 450-600$ to spend.

I like to play pop-punk, metalcore, rock, post hardcore, occasionally blues to

What would you advise me to get?

Thanks in advanced.

maybe later on but not after 7 months.
stick with your current guitar, improve youself, and save up money.
I advise you to wait. Remember playing guitar is a Lifelong thing. You have just started.

When you start to REALLY gig, then upgrade. When you know it is time to upgrade, upgrade.

I saw a band and a small bar and the guitar player had a Dean starter kit guitar.
Kinda funny though, all he did was and E shape bar chord for every song and played some ****e.
What's wrong with your current guitar? Is it the feel or the sound? If it's the latter then amp do you have?
Sounds to me like you've probably reached a plateau in your playing and maybe think that getting a new guitar is going to make you better faster. I agree with the other posters that say stick with what you have and just keep practicing.
