    Very nice of your aunt to help you out. Be sure once you get better to learn her favorite song and play it for her! I make that deal with my wife when I buy new guitars.

    Personally, if that's the kind of music you want to play, I would suggest an HSS with a coil split for the humbucker. That way you'll have he best of both worlds. Also, I suggest getting a decent acoustic guitar to learn with as well. They're great for getting your finger dexterity built up.

    @KayBreas This is excellent advice right here. Raiders is right that a HSS may serve you better for that style music. Not to say you can't play it with SSS though.

    But there is no antique olive color with hss and this model doesn't has coil split If I want humbucker on bridge its not expensive it might take me 250 usd to mod it

    I will add an humbucker and coil split if i need :)

    I still can get gibson les paul studio deluxe but I don't wanna get confused again

    I need an acoustic so much but not now :( I can't afford it and also an ukulele im in love with those little cute things

    Everyone has his rights of opinion. My opinion is that it is better buy cheaper guitar and invest in lessons and learning than get expensive guitar/amp/pedal. There are numerous examples where experienced players play so called cheap things and they sound absolutely fine and complete opposite. Its up to OP to decide who he wants to be. :)

    I was gonna get epi tribute plus and exp amp instead of exp guitar but I cant use exp amp bcz they are too loud and tube amps must be turned up to hear thier tone and Im gonna get an decent practice and im looking for a good teacher thanks to you for thinking best for me :)

    You should also consider a Boss Katana 50.

    Regardless of the amp, I think you're approaching this guitar selection ars-backwards. You need to earn some chops and experience before buying into a crazy expensive guitar. It's a real mistake to think that buying expensive is a way to avoid disappointment.

    Yeah, he wants all these instruments but is stuck on an American Pro or Elite or Deluxe......

    Think of all the things you could get if you got a Squier Classic Vibe or a Fender Mexico Standard...you would have like nearly 1000 US dollars left over to buy other things, that ukulele, a decent acoustic @KayBreas

    Tube amps don't need to be turned up to hear good tone - ones with a master volume are fine at low levels, and most have them these days. It seems like a lot of your knowledge is coming from opinions of people online on guitar forums rather than your own experience....

    When I get more experienced I will sell it and get what I need they are too valuable here when they compared to usa

    And maybe it will fit to me my whole life who knows :)

    I recognize that English isn't your first language so there are some questions that aren't clear.

    Did you already buy the Strat American Professional SSS or just strongly thinking about it, but not purchased yet? There are a number of factors to consider.

    1) HSS vs SSS.... For the style that I play which is varied I prefer the HSS. I can do more with the bridge pickup. A single coil in the bridge, can be a little too thin (keeping the wording simple).

    2) Professional VS Les Paul Studio Deluxe? ... That is a difficult choice. My personal opinion is that Gibsons are overpriced. Again, my PERSONAL opinion is that *I* don't like the neck on the Professional Strat. It pushes my thumb out of position and causes my hand to cramp. I like the old MIA Standards, Deluxe and the new Elite model, but I could never buy the American Professional. I suggest you play it before you buy it. I'm not sure what your situation is there in Turkey. I know that others will disagree and say they love the Professional. I've only described MY preferences. Yours may be different.

    Did you already buy it?

    Im so sorry if I made too many mistakes about language yes its not my main language

    No I didnt buy it yet I am strongly thinking to buy it

    I will be considering about hss but I have limited time and If i can't find used hss I will get sss and maybe add an humbucker to bridge if i need it

    I played both elite and pro and didn't make me feel wrong but I will try them again

    Get what you really want.

    No one has given you bad advice, but I know from personal experience, if you settle for a guitar that is not the guitar you really wanted, it will nag at you, and you will not feel satisfied.

    Practice, experience, and even lessons are important, but so is having a guitar that you love, because it will inspire you to play it, and having an expensive guitar does not mean you cannot have the other things.

    So don't let anyone else tell you what You should want.
