squier fat strat, make sure you get the fat strat since its got the humbucker, this is what i have right now and im just starting to go beyond the beginner level. the guitar has been good to me.

Avoid Starter packs, they are absolute rubbish.

I Recomend starting with these guitars as a general iption for each style

ROCK/CLASSIC ROCK
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Epiphone G-400
_____________________________
both of these guitars are really great for rock, you might need to save up a bit more for them. good starting points for anyone, and they are solid instruments
METAL
Ibanez RG Fixed Bridge Model
Shecter Damien Series
___________________________________
These guitars have High output humbuckers, and are usually what you would look for in a Metal Guitar. if your just starting out, i would avoid Tremolo Equiped instruments.

For an Amp, i would say:
Roland Cube 30. Lots of amp models and effects, a nice little amp

well the stuff im playing at the moment is amm Weezer and Bloodhound Gang?
so id be more rock/alternative then metal or punk!

the epiphone SG ive heard good things of!

squier stratocaster is the 1 ive been recommended the most

I would suggest a Yamaha Pacifica and a small Cube. The combination of the two will literally be able to play anything.

Roland makes a series of amps called cubes, they're probably the best solid state amps you can buy; there's a microcube, a 15W, a 30W, and a 45W, with each one being progressively louder and more expensive. The microcube is really just a practice amp and for jamming purposes you're probably going to want the 15 or 30W, as the 45W is rather expensive for a solid state amp.

agreed. pacifica 112 and microcube, that's full of win right there.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
