In all my hobbies i usually excel so instead of buying a cheap ass guitar to start with i want a decent one for around a $300 budget. I found good here https://bestelectricguitars.reviews/best-electric-guitars-under-300 . What can you say about them?

I really like the Fender Jaguar but i can't seem to find one in my budget cus they are $600. I can afford it but i don't really want to spend that much on a guitar...even if it is the one i really want

Thanks.

Then what will I have to do if you buy a guitar and start excelling in it after I spent so many years watching youtube gear demos? It's not gonna work that way, mister

I would hold out for a used classic vibe squier of some description. Best in that price range.

Also jaguars are a pita as a first guitar but no reason to not get one if you really love it, but spend some time with one first.

You can get a used Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar for $300, the humbucker one no doubt, maybe even the single coil one.

Personally I would recommend a Squier strat or tele instead.

I played this jazzmaster similar to Jaguar (in a way) and really enjoyed it !

And if You want something with humbuckers/bit of gretsch sound than this one is really nice !

both are around 300-390 check out ebay/reverb.com etc

And I agree with " George " about the 50s Classic Vibe Telecaster thats a really nice player (allrounder)
If my brother started playing guitar and wanted an electric I would suggest this
so check out maybe some used one is somewhere !

welcome, check out Squier jaguars, they're pretty nice. Vintage modified jags play nice and the classic vibe ones look promising if you're on a budget.
