I'd like to start playing electric, an amp isn't needed as I will use my computer. The guitar should be a nice weight, decent build quality, nice sound and look like the ones I think I should buy below. I was considering playing bass, but it's harder to solo and play my favorite songs

The website I listed is dead cheap! I'd prefer new for hygiene reasons

I'd say yamaha pacifica 112j

reason to chose it over the other yamaha:
body from alder instead of agathis (agathis is really cheap wood)

reason to chose over squier:
22 instead of 21 frets
bridge humbucker (better for any distorted rhytm playing)

+1 on the 112J.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I have a 012 and it isn't bad. It has a nice low action and (allegedly) a fast neck and a humbucker, for that rawk tone.

However, it lacks the Alnico pups of the 112 and as stated, uses Agathis instead of Alder wood. If you can make up the difference from a 012 to a 112, you go from a guitar that you will grow out of in a year to a guitar you will be playing years from now.

I buy both new AND used. You can clean the guitar before you use it, you know. And you should know that many woods have anti-bacterial properties. They've recently concluded, for example, that many of the wood cutting boards are better than the "hygienic" plastic cutting boards they were pushing for a number of years because the woods themselves were killing bacteria, while bacteria remained active in the various cuts and scrapes in the plastic boards.
