Ok All guitars are capable of drop tuning, period.

Yes but some guitars are better for drop tunings then others.

What would the difference be between dual humbuckers and a humbucker with a single coil pickup?

Humbuckers are double coil pickups that give off a warmer tone which alot of rock guitarist like. Single coil pickups give off a crunchy tone that alot of country players like, however, there are a lot of rock guitarist that like the single coil pickups and visa versa.

I'm a stone cold noob to any and all guitar. I told the guys at my local music store that I didn't want to buy junk, (i.e. starter pack type stuff) but didn't want to over spend either. My budget was similar to yours. Remember I had nothing to start with. (Gig bag, case, cables, tuner...etc.)'s what I picked up just about a month ago.

Schecter Diamond Series Omen 6-Dual Humbuckers (see pic <<) $300

I wanted some kind of modeling amp just for giggles so I bought up to the Vox Ad15VT...$179

After scoring the rest of the necessities mentioned above plus a $24 Keith Wyatt Beginners Rock book/cd, I got out the door for $575.

I don't come near to playing up the the level of my gear but I play everyday & the Schecter hardly ever needs to be tuned and sounds great on all the different amp models on the Vox. It's easy for me to play with a great low action AND once in a while I get lucky & make something sound like I actually want it to.

Maybe there's a better deal out there but I love what I've got, I've got some real positive feedback from some guys whose opinion I respect. If I overpaid a bit or bought over my head, BFD, I love it, I have fun & I'm motivated to grab that thing everytime I walk in the room. Have fun man, shopping for this stuff is a hoot. Hope this helps, good luck.
