What kinds of music do you like to play?

depends on what kind of sound and feel you are looking for. Fender Strats are great if you are looking for that sound. Just test a bunch of different brands out at the store. I recomend an Ibanez Rg its pretty versatile and even if you decide you want say a les paul or somethin later on it will make a great 2nd guitar.

Mate, you should read the sticky about posting here, no way near enough info.

But yes, Strats are good, but dont get a Squier, they are not worth it.

OK, apparently I haven't left enough information, sorry. Thanks everybody for waht you've said so far. The facts:
*Willing to spend the upwards of 1000 bucks (not including the amp)
*also plan on buying an amp
*play rock/pop/hawiaan/jazz-blues
can't think of much else info needed...
thanks for your help

Fender Standard Strat. It's only $350-$400, so then you have a good $600 left for a NICE amp.

I would go to a few music stores in your area and play as many electric guitar and amp combinations posible over a period of about 2 weeks or so every chance you get. Make sure the guitars are in perfect tune before judging them. Keep in mind the strings on most guitars in the music stores are played out. Also the intonation and action are questionable at times, although most guitars in your price range would probably be adjusted fine.
