I'm an amateur guitar player, learning how to play the electric guitar just for fun.
This is the equipment that I use for my studies. It is all simple and cheap, to be compatible with my skills. ;-)

This is a "Les Paul" style guitar, black.

This is a cheap Zoom effects pedal, with expression pedal, lots of pre-built patches, amplifier emulators, chromatic tuner, looper, rhythm patterns, etc. I use it most of the time, with my headphones, instead of using the amplifier.

Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222
This is a simple audio interface, that I use to record myself playing and listen afterwards. I bought it because it is known to work fine on Linux, but I'm still struggling a bit with Audacity.
This interface requires a pre-amplifier, then I need to use it together with my effects pedal.
ONERR Twenty 20
This is a 20W combo with (not so good) built-in overdrive.
Fortrek Blast DJ HP903
This is a simple headphone with 3.5mm connector (and 6.3mm adaptor) and big speakers (57mm of diameter). Comfortable enough to play for a few hours.

I like to study with Dunlop .71mm picks and Ernie Ball Regular Slinky 10-46 strings.
Cables are all simple, blinded, handmade.
Sometimes I use a cheap dedicated chromatic tuner with metronome.
