If you're really bent on getting a new guitar I'd recommend a Mexi strat or some sort of Epiphone. That way you get not too bad of a guitar that will last a while but if you end up not being too into playing guitar you're not out a heck of a lot of money. Plus, it leaves you some room to buy a practice amp and a pedal or two.

Really though, you could do a lot better for your money to buy a second hand one. Let someone else take the loss on buying new and finding out they weren't really that interested in learning guitar.

I'm sure you'll find something good. You seem really interested in the process of getting a guitar, which is half the battle, really. Just try a whole bunch of them out and see which is best. Even with the same model of guitar- try a bunch. Some are just more musical than others.

Sounds like you're leaning towards an SG, which is a good choice. Except for the Firebird, all Gibsons have glued in necks, so I wouldn't worry too much about the quality or sound of them. It's a pretty tried and true way of putting a neck on.

Go for an SG!

I'm pretty sure Firebirds have a neck through body, unlike the LP, SG and 335 style guitars, which have a glued in set neck.

I'm not even addressing bolt-on Gibson style guitars. That's just wrong wrong wrong. :smile:
