    Buy the guitar you want, the only thing to really worry about is how to budget for the next two or three. You will not stop at one.

    Thank you for all the advice! I actually did buy the Tiger Burst one linked by fellow poster! I got it for $1,850! It'll be here on Thursday (is it Thursday yet?!) and I'll post some pics. Thanks again all! I could also use better playing skills if anyone knows a place that sells those cheap ...

    Garrett - That Custom 24 you linked to came yesterday. It's great! I linked pics on another thread here. Thank you again for taking the time to find me some good options. Got it for $1,850, BTW. Not bad!

    I think you're looking at this the wrong way. There's no such thing as buying too much guitar for your skill level. There is such a thing as buying too much guitar for your commitment. It's not a matter of how well you play; it's a matter of how much you're going to play it. If you're playing the guitar and enjoying it, you're getting your money's worth, no matter what your skill level is. That should be the deciding factor. If you're not certain you have the time or inclination to stick with it, you might want to take less of a risk by going with a less expensive option. But if you're certain you'll get use out of it, then a quality instrument is a worthy investment, skill level be damned.
