I haven't even touched an electric guitar before but I'm willing to buy one so I could learn, I've two choices that I'm considering.
First is the Schecter SGR C-1 and the second is Mitchell MD200

do you have any family members or friends who play? i only ask because if you're considering buying on amazon, you'd likely have to set the thing up yourself and that's pretty difficult if you don't know what you're doing and don't have someone who can help. though it's a lot easier than it used to be with youtube etc.

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 would go with a squier strat of sorts. Whether it be an affinity/standard/classic vibe, they'll definitely get you closer to the sounds you mentioned. What's good about strats is you can mod basically every single last detail of it. I don't think the guitars youre thinking about would really get you that sound but in the end you'd be playing a guitar so it can't be that bad

Buy yourself a Squier. If you still wanna play upgrade. If not at least you can trade it or sell it!

Can you get a Yamaha Pacifica there? Might be worth a look.

Plus one for going used if you know someone knowledgeable enough to check it out.
