You can get a pretty good used USA Jackson superstrat- because of the JB/59' pups they are very versatile. Mine can go from metal to jazz in the flick of a switch.

The JB is an awesome pup. I have one in my Alder-bodied Soloist and I love it- its extremely versatile and can handle anything from Metal to Jazz. Pair it with a Seymour Duncan Jazz or a Duncan 59'.
