Hello, i finished fundamentals and i m starting rock course. I love rock and metal,so that s my goal.

I m looking for a new eletric guitar under 400€. I love strats, so i m thinking in buying a squier 50s strat? Or should i look for a guitar with humbucker?

I would appreciate any advice,

João

The classic question of Single Coil or Humbucker. If you are a metal guy, you might want the humbucker option to get that phat souund. But single coils provide clarity, and you can get super huge and beefy with single coil anyway. I would suggest looking into your favorite band's guitarists and what kind of guitar they use. There will always be an affordable version of any kind of high end guitar. Good luck!

Share some pics when you get it...

As far as strats go - i have one and with the right pedals you can definitely get a good metal tone. The clarity is awesome too vs. humbuckers. It's not the same though and depends on what flavors of metal you want. The strat can get more of a '80's metal sound if that helps.
