What kind of music do you play? What kind of a budget do you have?
My advice is try getting the best used guitar you can find in your price range. That way you will get a better guitar for your money but still have something that you don't mind if it gets beat up bouncing around in your car. The worst thing you can do is get a cheap crappy guitar just to save a buck and end up with a truly cheap crappy guitar.
Jimmie showed me alot of stuff, but there was a time when he warned, 'If you ask me to show you anything again, I'll kick your ass.' Well, I did and he did. - SRV
