Thinking of getting my first electric guitar. What's the difference in sound or playing? What does each do better? I just want something that's all round I guess.
It depends the shape of guitar, feel, and the sound you want to play. I listed the guitar models they are based off of and general features. Go to a guitar shop and see which type sounds/feels better to you.

Route 66 = Les Paul, guitar neck behinds backwards towards you, heavier weight, none to less electrical noise when played through amp, great for rock - like this B'z [youtube.com]

California = Stratocaster, straight neck, lighter weight, wood cutout on back of guitar for stomach, more electrial noise when played through amp(depends on settings), great for cleaner sounds - like this David Gilmour [youtube.com]
