A guitar players most valuable tool - beside his ears - are the instruments he plays. They should fit your personality and be able to produce the sound you want to hear.
In the past years I have been trying out different guitars, starting out with a quite basic one at the age of 5 years.
Since then I tried and gathered a broad collection of various instruments, amplifiers and effects. Currently I am mainly using different guitars by the dutch luthier "Bo - El", as well as the Kemper profiling amplifier.
Most of my students when starting the lessons already bring their own guitar as I do not rent them out. Since it is very important for your first guitar to be one that you like and feel comfortable with, you are more than welcome to ask for advice if necessary.
Beside various other guitars, I'm playing several guitars hand-built by the dutch company Bo - El. Not only do they provide excellent instruments, but also great service when it comes to maintenance.
