I'll be picking up my first electric this summer most likely. I've been playing acoustic for awhile but when I plug it in and especially when I crank up the gain with distortion I get too much feedback to have fun with it.

Anyway, I hear humbuckers reduce alot of noise in the pickup, but I also hear that stratocasters are really the all-around-good name in electric guitars, yet strats don't have humbuckers from what I'm reading.

So which should I really go for, a guitar with a humbucker double coil pickup + maybe one more or a strat which has 3 single coils??

I'll be wanting super low action and will be playing lots of rock (power chords stuff) but also alot of blues rock (in the style of kws, clapton, joe bonamassa ,etc) once I get better. I also want to play slide but I can use my acoustic for that since the actions's higher.

To recap, I think the most important things in order to me are:

1. Low action and ease of fretting
2. humbuckers or all around low noise, hum, feedback, any of that crap
3. light weight
4. Number of frets (don't care /too/ much, I can always use a thimbal)
this is a post. there are many like it but this one is mine

fat strats are good. 2 single coils and a humbucker in the bridge, probably your best bet.
