Default Recommend me a guitar...

I want a cheap guitar that would be good for noise rock type stuff. I was looking at a Jagmaster the other day, but it sold and I have no clue if I can find another one. Plus, I don't know much about electric guitars since I have only been playing classical stuff on my acoustic for almost a year now. So what type of guitar/s should I be looking at?

Preferably below $300, but possibly $400.

Buy Squier Black and Chrome Fat Strat Electric Guitar at Musician's Friend

Pretty versatile.

if you seriously want to make noise rock type stuff then don't bother getting a new guitar. go to a pawn shop and pick the coolest looking thing on the wall for under $250. use the extra cash from your price range for a fuzz box and possibly a 2nd effect.

Yeah, that was what I was thinking of doing. Haven't got around to it yet either. There is also a pretty big flea market around here so I am also thinking of heading down there.

And I don't want to make noise rock, but I want to make music influenced by noise, and all that stuff.

flea markets and pawn shops are hit and miss but it's your best bet for finding something other than a default strat looking thing (squire) or a default les paul looking thing (epiphone).

you won't get good noisy crackles, hiss, pops, scratches or scrapes from a new guitar. just what sort of bands / guitarists are you looking towards in terms of noise influenced rock?

Well, Shoegaze stuff like My Bloody Valentine, noise stuff Sonic Youth's early stuff, and droning stuff like Boris.

Like, I don't really want to make noise, but I want to make music influenced by it.

then you definitely don't want to spend your whole budget on a squire. the kind of distortion pedal will likely be more important than the make and model of whatever guitar you use.
