Hey, I've been playing guitar for a year and a half now and it's about time i upgraded to a more intermediate guitar from my crappy squier strat. I mostly play stuff like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, and some alternative stuff like Goo Goo Dolls. I've went to my local music store and I tried a bunch of them, and I narrowed it down to- Epiphone les paul, PRS SE custom, or a mexi HSS strat. any suggestions on which i should get, i really can't decide

Because you've not been playing for too long you will probably want to branch out your styles later and will need a more versatile guitar so id get the PRS

i have both an epiphone les paul and a mexi HSS strat. i'd have to say for your style the HSS strat would do you some good. i dont think a les paul would be able to match the Red HotChili Peppers tone. also i've nevr played a PRS but i'd rrecomend a strat

The PRS SEs are some of the best guitars at the price. I've played one and was very surprised at the quality of the instrument. I've never played a MIM strat, but the PRS is leagues above the Epi in terms of quality and playability. Can't really comment on the pickups. I played a Semi-hollow with P-90s and it was 1 of the best sounding guitars I've ever heard. I would definitely go with the PRS.
