I've been looking for an electric guitar lately and I got interested in 2 models:
The Fender Stratocaster and the Gretsch G2622T Streamliner . I have played acoustic for a while but I didn't like it, though. So I'm actually a beginner starting from the bottom.

I love both of them, but I prefer the Gretsch more than the Stratocaster. Maybe because it's too mainstream in the world of electric guitars. The Streamliner is also cheaper.

At the guitar store, the retailer told me that the Fender is more versatile for a beginner and it delivers a great sound. He also told me that you need to like the typical Gretsch sound. To have more feeling for the bluesy and warm sound.

Could you have any tips for buying one? Thanks
