Hi, I've been playing acoustic guitar for 4 months and I've played my friend's electric guitars and I really want to buy one. I've also been playing piano for about 6 years(don't know if that means anything). Any advie would be greatly appreciated.

Squier Strat
There is a several hundre dollar difference between the Strat and an Eiphone Les Paul, so if cost is a factor, and since you are new to guitars it should be, I would recommend the Strat as well.

If ya can't get a hold of an RG, look for an Ibanez GRX20. They cost about the same as a Squier Strat but they are way better. Stays in tune a lot better than a Squier, plus has more frets than a Strat
They also have a GRX40 which is the same thing with two single coil pickups instead of two humbuckers.

I have to agree with WahWah and EJ. GO squier.An early model if you can find one. As far as them being poop on a stick, thats one persons opinion. Properly set up they are a superb guitar. Another option I am sure EJ would agree with is the OLP MM1. Both alot of bang for your buck.As andrew said, play it before you pay for it.

thanks, I went to the store and tryed out the squier strat, yamaha pacifica, ibanez RG(can't remember the model, but it cost $200), and the epiphone les paul special. The two I thought fit me best were the yamaha and the epiphone. The Yamaha is slightly cheaper, but I don't think price is a huge issue since there all pretty low cost guitars. I just have to find some amps now.
