making your own guitar is a long learning process.
it's something that I'm doing at the moment,
if you really want to know then you should go to the library and look at a few book, (there is one by Melvin Hiscock which is good -I think it's called How to build an electric guitar).
once you have the rough idea you should head over to www.mimf.com
(musical instruments makers forum) to ask specific questions. -specific questions meaning if you just ask how do I make a guitar you'll be told to go read a book...
I would skip the fender. The cavities aren't shielded, so they pick up a lot of noise
I was bought a strat copy once, horribly noisy, that is until I spent a good long while shielding the inside with copper foil, now it's a nice quiet guitar.
OK, here is what I think, all the guitars you posted to have their troubles, firstly the jackson, these are very nice guitars, but they are also quite metal, they are normally well made and nice to play though, but if you're just after classic rock then I'd stay away from it.
I get the same feeling from the dean micheal guitar as well, (and I think it's looks poo too).
if you're learning on a fender then it might be better to stay with the flat bridge setup, gibons have a different radius fingerboard, and bridge setup. personally I find it difficult to swap between a strat and a les paul, les pauls just don't feel right to me...
if you want to be different from your friends, don't get a strat.
if you like the sound of the single coil pickups like you get in a strat, and also want to keep that original classic rock kind of sound then try a tele or something.
if you want something a little more hard rock, yet still classic rock then why not try an SG,
but for well built warm sounding guitars, I don't really think that you can beat an ibanez
