I'm thinking about picking up a Fender Starcaster to try my hand at electric guitar. I have a simple acoustic guitar at the moment, but it just doesn't cut it for me. Is this a good choice for a beginner electric guitar? I don't plan on playing any concerts, just more to goof off and try to record some songs with GarageBand. Also, as I want to do some recording, I also plan on buying a preamp, but I'm not sure which one I should use. It doesn't matter to me if it is USB or if it connects to the audio jack, so long as it isn't terribly expensive. It might be possible to use the included amp as a preamp, but I don't know if there is enough power in it to do a good quality recording.
