There are a couple of things which are not negotiable in guitars, for me.

The first is tuners. I cannot abide shitty tuners. The tuners must be good, or they will piss me off. Grovers are, well,...

Mmm yeah, forgot about Hagstrom. One of these days, I really need to grab a nice semi-hollow. How are the Vikings? Sometimes I see them selling really cheap online.

Probably. People like guitars that look cool. A Malden Bulldozer or Godin (aside from the Sessions) just isn't that visually appealing.

I think it's the combination of how sweet they look, the good buzz about their quality and the relatively few of them available for sale. Those factors all drive up prices.

For me, tone. A Les Paul going through a cranked tube has this sound man, it's crazy. Go look up "Mississippi Queen" and you'll know what I mean. Yeah, "Mississippi Queen" that song has everything. :p

Something MIJ, vintage to the late 70s or 80s. Tokai, Fernandes and Greco would be my first ports of call, or maybe Squier MIJ. It's really more about getting specs you can't find in modern guitars....

Sell it man. You can get enough money to shop around, buy a good MIM strat and probably have a few bucks left over to buy a pedal or something.
