they all sound the same when you're starting out

Ok, but is it worth paying around 5-600 euros instead of 2-300 as a beginner?.

Only do this if it's comfortable.

Fender/Squier make reliable first guitars. Avoid First Act and Rogue imo.

Make sure you get a half decent amp or else you'll sound like shit regardless how much money you put into the guitar. Fender, Roland, and Vox all make moderately decent starter amps for cheap, do not get a Line 6 Spider.

Avoid First Act and Rogue, they're cheaply made, and won't last. If you spend 100 more dollars you could get a better guitar that will last you a lifetime. My choice, would be a squier. I always choose this pack when beginners ask me. '

Epiphone/Squier/cheaper Ibanez are the most sold beginner guitars I guess.
I myself rock a Epiphone SG Goth.

Really, flying V's are good looking but very annoying to sit down with and play.
If you really want a Flying V style...

Gibson Flying V and a Mesa Duel Recto.

Before you ask that it's too expensive, get a job you bum.

But seriously, A Peavey Vypyr will be fine for starting out. If you want a decent, affordable V, look at Jackson what can offer.

Gibson V's are actually really comfortable to play; you just need to get used to holding the guitar like a classical guitar.

ANd don't get a GIbson MElody Maker V. Get a real Gibson V or bust.
