Good electric guitar to start on? (and keep for years)?

I'm pretty much a complete fool when it comes to guitars. I don't really know anything about them besides all of the youtube videos and other things I have been researching and I can't seem to get a clear answer for today's date. My budge

Fender Telecaster

That's a common but unrealistic expectation - you may hold on to your first guitar for years but if all goes well you'll be on to your next guitar sooner than you think.

First, You Tube is a great resource for people who can play guitar and/or know a lot about them. For beginners though it's no use at all - too much rubbish on there sometimes posted by people who know no more than you do. You need to know enough to be able to spot the rubbish and reject it.

Secondly, buying second hand is a good idea IF you know a lot about guitars or have someone to take with you who does. Otherwise, you could easlily buy something that is overpriced, not working properly or impossible to play.

To me, the two obvious brands to suggest would be Epiphone or Squier. Try to avoid the cheapest models of either. Spend as much as you can afford. There are other brands available too and, really, it just dpends on what you can find in your area.

The only sensible place to buy is from a music store. Visit a few and talk to staff about what you want. Try to buy everything you need (amp, strap, picks, spare strings etc.) in one go as you might get a discount. Avoid "packs" containing a so-so guitar, poor quality amp and lots of rubbish in a cardboard box that has never been opened since it left the factory. Buy a guitar you can actually "play" and check over.

There is no one right answer to your question. It really does depend on what is in the store you visit. Some people have problems with Squiers or Epiphones and yet I have one of each and think they're great.
