Hi! Please answer by January or so, because I'll be off to guitar center by then. I've got a little over 500 and I want to spend it on an electric guitar with good sound quality. Any good suggestions?

I would look at the epiphone knockoffs of the les paul and sg. Also I would look at the Fender standards, both the telecaster and the stratocaster. Find which guitar plays better, feels more comfortable and sounds the best.

I choose price over quality every time.

Did you mean to say that? Price over quality? It makes sense for a beginner, but not after that.

I've found that quality doesn't really vary with guitars. Just go with the cheapest one. Of course, you have to get one that looks cool, but aside from that they are basically the same.

Lately, the best guitars seem to be made in China.

You've both made some good points. I like guitars for price, but it defintely needs to play good. But I like stylish guitars, too.

That's wht I was trying to explain, sys2matk. I hate cheap guitars from those unknown brands that produce badly. I always look for better sound quality, then, style.

New to this site but...my advice is always to spend time in the shop and talk to the guys there (make sure that it is a reputable place though and the assistants aren't just non-muso 9 to 5 er's) try out the guitars in your playing style to see what suits you in your price range and go from there (also borrow a strap to see how they feel when wearing them).
In my experience every time I have bought a new guitar I have had great feedback from the staff and plenty of opportunity to decide on what suits me best.

Cheers.

In MY experience, I have found that the quality of electric guitars is basically the same across the entire spectrum.

Spend your money on the biggest amp you can find and you will almost never have to practice. (The big ones play themselves.)

That's not true, PeterK. Guitars can have a huge difference in each other. Try a $99.00 squire, than a gibson or fender. You WILL hear a difference. Thanks for the advice, Floydican. I always check each guitar thoroughly before buying. Not worth buying a guitar that doesn't sound good.
