So im about to start taking lessons on how to play guitar and i was wondering which guitar is good for starting out. Id like not to go over $350 but willing to go to $400 if needed. Im looking to play metal so which ever guitar is best for that would be nice. Thanks for any help.

Do you already have an amp?

Cheap Jackson Dinkies, Cheap Dean Guitars, Cheap shecter guitars.

Ibanez RG123, Agile AL-2000, MAYBE one of the new lower end ESPs what use basswood...

hell i got an american strat for my first guitar

You know, this isn't a thread to brag. And no beginner should own a $1000 guitar.

To OP, it would be helpful to know what kind of music you want to play.
Gear:
Jackson Pro Series DK2 Dinky (Eerie Dess Swirl)
Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos (Chameleon Red) =D

Crate FXT65 amp with 3-way foot switch
Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah Pedal

Yamaha Pacifica. Very customable, good for price (£100, I think that's $200)

It does help to have something fairly decent

I mean if your just starting out you don't want a piece of crap sat in the corner as it wouldn't make you wanna pick it up and play it.

I would agree with a Pacifica though
Gear:
- Yamaha RGX121D in black
- Schecter C1 in white
- Marshall Valvestate 8080
- Roland Cube 20x
- Zoom G1X
- Guitar Rig 3 (for practicing )

My G/F wanted to learn and the lil martin I got her just wasn't working out. I got her Dean ML XP ($250), a Valve Jr Combo ($149) and she loves it. I even play on it quite a bit. Get a bad Monkey or something to go with it and you'll be set.
