Which kind of player are you? One of the reasons the electric guitar became the most iconic and significant musical instrument of the last six decades is its versatility: its sound has graced modern music of all styles from Jazz to heavy metal! Semi-Acoustics such as the ES models are usually popular amongst jazz & blues players, while solid-bodies are more common with rock'n'roll bands... but as Bod Dylan once said, "there are no rules", and pretty much any guitar can be used for any style.
Your idols may also inspire you to choose a particular type of guitar: Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton are associated with the sounds of a Fender Stratocaster, whereas Jimmy Page and Slash will forever be remembered as Gibson Les Paul players. Fans of indie and alternative rock, on the other hand, usually love the tones of a Telecaster, Jaguar or Jazzmaster guitar.
There are also other factors to consider when buying an electric guitar: do you like bright & clean sounds, or fat and heavy? If it's the first case, go for a guitar equipped with single coil pickups, like players such as Clapton, Gilmour, Mark Knopfler or Jeff Beck did. Or, if you prefer a powerful sound with lots of sustain, ideal for heavy rock, go for a guitar equipped with humbuckers!
