Comfort is the most important criterion for a wannabe guitarist to advance when he starts learning to play an electric guitar. Before buying it, keep in mind what you are going to play, and how you want to play it. It may seem absurd, but it is of vital importance. Even the type of bridge is in this aspect.
If you are going to play very technical styles such as extreme metal, thrash, hard rock or neoclassic, your electric guitar has to allow the lowest string height possible, for example, 1.5mm on the first string. A guitar like Les Paul or a Fender Vintage would not be the most suitable choices for someone who is learning. Not that they are less comfortable, they simply are designed for other types of expressive techniques and for a certain type of timbre, which suffers with low strings.
A guitar with low strings usually supports other types of tension, the strings are somewhat softer, allowing a finer string gauge if we wish to, although not all are advantageous. At a lower height, it is often more difficult to control the vibrato, precisely, the vibrato gains much when there is a little more tension by the control, and something similar happens with the bends when the neck is narrow.
On the other hand, if you play blues, classic rock or jazz, the height of the strings is usually a bit higher, around 1.7 or 1.8 in the first string, and the neck is usually wider and less flat. This makes the timbre different and the tension higher. It is harder to play at high speeds if you do not have a proper level, but the strings separation helps when bends are done, and the increased tension confers greater control on expressive techniques such as vibrato. Needless to say, if you play with a slide, it is much better to have high strings.
You can try to get yourself a fixed bridge. The supports are better for palm, and as each string has an independent tuning when it comes to ‘stretching’ the strings, bends with double notes will not tune out.
On a Floyd Rose, when you stretch a string, you move the whole bridge. Therefore, double notes with bend, a bending on a string and another that stays in its tuning, without stretching), does not end up sounding well. Again this has a lot to do with style. If you play blues or classic rock, it does not make sense to have a Floyd Rose, you will not take advantage and will be annoyed to play
