Get a hollow or semi hollow electric with P90 or double coil pickups, a blackface or tweed Fender amp, and learn from the older blues players like...
I find it easier to play chords on a Fender.
I've got US made Petersen Vise Grip pliers in various sizes, and they're real easy to adjust, but I don't think any of them would make a good...
Choices can be limited by one's natural abilities, health, and circumstances.
I had one of those. It was boosted to 100 watts and had a master volume. It barked like a Marshall JMP 2203. :D

Myth: tone is in the fingers, the gain structure of the amplifier (i.e. distortion), and the wood of a solid body guitar.

How about the compressed top 40 rock and pop songs that were released in 45 rpm record format and played on AM radio? That was a lot worse than...
I have the three basic types: a steel string acoustic, a classical, and a twelve string. None of them are expensive, but they're there in case I...
Pride (In The Name Of Love) by U2.
Elton John. Especially his first four albums.
I wish commercial terrestrial radio would disappear.
