I'd go with the HSS strat. I used to be the biggest Nirvana fanboy, and I've seen kurt with more strats than mustangs. And Frusciante is obviously a massive strat guy. If you want to emulate those guys it's a no brainer.

Definitely the HSS Strat. Maybe get the humbucker coil-split so you can achieve the Frusciante tones in the bridge (I'm thinking of Cant Stop). And I agree with OP-IVY, I've seen Kurt with lots of strats with humbuckers, such as his vandalism strat.

I play a Cort G260 with HSS configuration and coil split, I used to play lots of Nirvana with it a year ago and lately I've gotten into Frusciante's tone and playing. In my opinion HSS with coil split has the best of both worlds and is the way to go.

Also seen a Fender Stratocaster USA Clone SSS for 250 euros(online) but as someone here stated before I would like to test some guitars by myself but in my town there is just one little music shop I don't think there should be more than 10 guitars.

Now that I've realized that the amp affects the sound more than the guitar I've to choose a good amp before and then choose a guitar with the rest of the money.

Someone here before said that Fender Hot Rod Deluxe + Fender Strat is a good combo but the Fender Hot Rod is about 600 euros. Someone here knows if the Fender Pro 185 is good as the Hot Rod?

I still think you should invest more into the amp than the guitar.

I haven't played that Fender, but the 185 has a decent rep. Like almost any fender amp you can name, however, it probably will not distort all that well, so you might want a good pedal in there, too.

That's what I tried to say in my last post.
