Libertines/Dirty Pretty Things Frontman Carl Barat plays that guitar. It's a bargain in America for that guitar, as it costs $800 here in th UK. If you have enough money, get that guitar, and a Blackheart amp like mine - it's perfect for what you want to play, and you could get it all for less than $600. The amp is also the perfect volume for beginners/home practice.

Like the other guy said though, get a decent amp - like the blackheart - before the guitar, but I personally think the guitar is a nice choice.
