@flood- They probably won't. It's 'another forum'. Sad.
@Gator Phreak -
Hardly. I'd say any guitar with a tremolo is bad for beginners. Too much fuss, too much tuning, too little playing (my friend has a BC Rich ASM, craptastic - I had to tune it for hours, only to do it again...and again...unfortunately, that was the only - borrowed - guitar I had for a while, and fortunately, I learned my lesson and my first guitar is a nice TOM style bridge. Meanwhile, that lad has a severely screwed sense of intonation, and can't even tell when he's playing in tune and when he's not.). I don't even see the point of using a tremolo, I'd rather use a whammy pedal - 2 octaves, no tuning problems, no fuss - and otherwise concentrate on compositional and catchy riffs wizardry rather than effects or technical wizardry. But people just want to 'have it all' on their very first guitar, it's like handing an F1 to someone who's just starting driving lessons - and it's not even qualitatively that good.
For the two main kinds of solidbodies, I've experienced these two to be the usual suspects.
Strat - Yamaha Pacifica
Les Paul - Greg Bennett Avion
For people of a different class -
SG - Greg Bennett Torino
Tele - Squiers.
Save up, buy the Pacifica if you're keen on strats. Keen on metal - upgrade amp and humbuckers, in that order. And if you must have an Ibanez - RG series, 20k+ only, hard tail only >.>
