Hey...

I have my electric guitar for around 5 days... I've got a "Caliber stratocaster"
A local guitar shop told me it is a good guitar to start with, was he right?

Maybe a Yamaha Fat Strat would suit you better.

For what kind of music is my guitar made then?

From blues to Iron Maiden, at the most (and thats pushing it).

You'll be struggling if you don't have a stacked humbucker though.

If it's what you want, then it's fine.

In a year, if you want to get really heavy, you might need to get a guitar with humbuckers.

Partly because the hum of single coils is more obvious when distortion is present.
Posers are like punks, except they do it for fashion

notUG PUNK FORUM PRESIDENT!

*disbelief* you said stacked HB's your tripping over yourself... omg...

personally i think the neck profile conforming to your hand size has more to do with ease of learning then quality of the electronics in it. true if it sounds like crap plugged in its gonna put you off from wanting to learn more since you can't even get close to the sound your after.
but when i was just learning to play i was rarely plugged in anyways.

ymgwie plays SSS, but all are stacked(noiseless pickups on some fenders are a prime example)

and don't bash genres, it makes you look stupid

Best to start of with a yamaha. They're not very expensive and they work alright. I started with some really crap one, then I got a fender Squier. Maybe you could start off with a Squier. Bu since you already have a stratocaster then you should stay with that one.
#37
If you only been playing for 5 days, you probably, I'm assuming, won't be able to tell a Marshall JCM800 from a Marshall MG. Please get some skill to appreciate gear before you go out shelling cash for better gear.

Dude strats are very great to start on and play as a more advanced musician too, i play anything from blues and jazz to metal and punk and my mexican made deluxe fat strat hss does the trick. The humbucker on the thing is great and i only payed $500 on www.musiciansfriend.com
#39
put it this way an SSS strat holds a very sharp rock tone and if u want something heavy a les paul holds a fat and heavy tone
