I looking to buy a first electric guitar to play rock, pop-punk and punk. I have narrowed down the search to three models. i have $300 to spend on a guitar.does anyone know anything about these models?



Well Epis are pretty good but Im a strat man myself. Go to a good music store and ask some questions and advice - if its a good store you should get good neutral advice.
My Gear :
Fender American Strat in Metallic Red
EHX Big Muff
Boss ME-50
Boss SD-1
Fender 15 Watt Amp (Upgrade soon to a Marshall )
Red Furry guitar strap

Any of those guitars would be an above average starter guitar. I like Ibanez but just in case you don't stick with guitar I think (could be wrong) that the Epi's will have the higher resale value.
before anything, how much can you spend on an amp?
Schecter C-1 Artist
Vox AD15VT
Epiphone EJ-200 Acoustic
^That's a big factor as well. But either the Epi or the Ibanez. I'm not a fan of SGs.

Zakk Wylde is a Viking, and history has proven that you cannot own Vikings, it's impossible.

First of all, what is/will be your amp?

The guitars are all quite similar, so my advice is to get into a GC, ask for those three guitars and decide which one feels better under your hands.
