Ive been playing for almost 3 months and Im looking to get a decent guitar around the $400-$650 price range. I play mostly punk, but I do dabble in metal and everything else. I want something that I can start to get serious with. Can anyone recommend me anything?

Sorry if this has been done before or if theres already a thread for this.

This should be in the Electric Guitar forum...but I'd suggest something like an Ibanez SZ series guitar. Very good all-round guitar. Also, you could check into the PRS SEs and Fender Showmasters.

All of those should cover your genres quite nicely.

Could also go with a Fender Strat or Tele as well... The amp you have is going to make more of a difference on the sound you want out of your guitar than the guitar itself.

ESP's are money for metal so I'd definitely look into that brand...really good bang for the buck too. Check out some used Teles and H-S-s Strats because you could get one for a steal in that range, too and they're versitile.

Ive been looking at strats and telecasters, but I have no idea on anything when it comes to gear. Could you recommend and amp too then?

For punk, I would recommened any guitar with humbuckers in it.
To me, single coils left something to be desired with distortion.
However, Clean, they cant be beat.
So look for humbuckers.
Amps:
LINE 6 SPIDER 3
I know people dont like them, but I would say, for the money, best tone around.

You've obviously never played a similar priced amp then (Vox ADs, Roland Cube, Epi VJ, Crate Palomino, etc.)

NO. No line 6 spiders. Try a roland cube 30 or 60 they can do alot and have a fairly nice clean tone. That or if your going big get a valveking.

get an epiphone les paul, very good all around guitar for it's price...and as for amp, peavey classics are great. they don't do metal but if you have a pedal or something they could pull it off.
