My choice of a starter electric would have to be a Barracuda guitar. They are cheap and have a good sound to them and are good for begginers that are just starting out. After you have been playing for 4 months to a year I suggest to get a new guitar. If your going to get a guitar after you've been playing for 4 months to a year. I would suggest getting a Jay Turner or a B.C. Rich guitar. The thing with B.C. Rich guitars are that they come in odd shapes. They look more like Metal guitars. Although they have a good sound to them some of them are a little harder to string then others. The most popular guitar from them is the Warlock. There newist guitar is called the Zombie it is really nice but I havent heard the sound of it. And after you have been playing for a really long time I suggest getting a Gibson. The most popular Gibson is the Gibson Les Paul. Which was played by Slash of Guns 'N' Roses, Slash's Snake Pit, Slash's Blue Bail and Velvet Revolver. Other popular Gibson guitars are the Gibson SG which has been played by lots of guitar players the most famous would have to be Angus Young of AC/DC. And that is all I know hope this gave you some information.
