Ok so I'm kinda new to the electric guitar but I really want to get into it. My price range is anywhere below $300. Right now, I'm trying to decide between a ESP LTD EC-100QM and a Squier Fat Stratocaster. At Guitarcenter they're both under $300. Which one of these would be a better choice? I'm leaning more towards the Fat Strat because I like the sound better.
If neither of these would be good, please list a possible choice. Also, what amp should I get?

Wrong section, im sure But still. EDIT: Ninja'd
If you like the Squier better, get that. It's completely personal taste. And if your budget of $300 is for both amp AND guitar, i'd look at the GC's used section. I saw a cute lil' amp there the other day for $30.

If not, anything under about $150 is good for beginner amps, IMO.

I would say the strat, IMO. I will admit, I love my Fenders, so I'm a little biassed. But I think they are a little more versatile for a new guitarist.

If you've played a guitar you like, go with it. It doesn't matter what people on the internet tell you is the best thing to buy; only your hands and your ears can really tell you what is best for you. You like the Squier? Buy the Squier.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

That's just it, I don't really know how to play guitar. I used to fiddle around on my old hand-me-down accoustic but that's nothing really

I'm another one saying you should go with the Squier. I played one up until the day I dropped the big bucks on an American strat. And I STILL don't wanna sell it.

Damn dude, this sounds wicked. Looks rad too. Thanks for showing me, I'm probably going to get this now!


The Rg321 is a great choice.
Even if you cant find one to play in a store you can pickup just about any other non-prestige rg to get the feel for the wizard 2 neck and hear the Infs.
