Sounds like you should be looking at PRS guitars. They're well made and have good value.

I recommend an SG. It still has the double cut away feel he'd be used to with playing a strat, it's got two humbuckers. Strats and SG's/Les Pauls make a good combination.

What your husband needs is a new amp.
I recommend one of the new limited edition cream Vox AC30s.
Trust me, he'll still be thanking you for it in 30 years time.

If you still wanna get him an axe, I would steer clear of the big G and go after less expensive things but still interesting.
Italia Maranello Speedster 2 is nice

So is the 15th Anniversary Maranello Classic

Luna Sol

or even a Fender Jaguar HH
The new solo project, and spiritual philosophy... Album out now !
hybrid 6.0
Debut album 'Silent Destruction' out now

I know that other people have already commented on this but wow, your husband is one lucky man!

That being said (and it needed to be!!), have you thought about a semi-hollowbody guitar? Maybe like an ES-339 sort of guitar? It's a matter of personal taste of course but it'd compliment a strat very well and if he likes to play the blues, well... that just works...

I guess you could also look at the Godin LGX or xtSA . Seems like a similar shape to the Taylor he was looking at - but! they have piezos (to sound like an electro-acoustic guitar) and even synth access for some of them (although he'd have to eventually buy a synth module to use that). You should be able to find a used one for the price you're looking at (or a brand new one for the xTSA - and boy would I love to have one...).

Literally, you get an electric guitar, an electro-acoustic guitar and a synthetizer (once you get the synth module) all in one, absolutely gorgeous-looking guitar...

Thing about Taylors is that you really want to contact Taylor Guitars and ask if there's anything "special" in the back room in terms of a solid body electric. Those guys put together some absolutely amazing guitars from stunning woods that aren't production items. They DO sell them, and you CAN get them and all you have to do is indicate that you know about them and want one.

Yeah, that'd work too. Sound is pretty different from the ES-types no? I've never tried one...
