Hopefully you'll have a good amp to begin with. I take it you're into the blues? An Epiphone Dot 335 would be a great choice. As would a Strat, Tele, or the Epiphone SG, but whatever you like is what you should go for. Shop around!

Don't forget the used section. You can find some pretty good buys on occasion.

You should go with a Jackson Dinky which basically look like RG's. They are better though because they are made in Japan and not Korea. I like the floyd rose better too than on the the RG's. Other than that yeah you could get a strat. I had a white strat the Mexican made one. I like RG's better. Its all about the sound your going for, though.
