I have about $300 to spend on a new guitar. What is the best guitar for around $300? I mostly play alternative/rock like Blink 182 and Jimi Hendrix. Please any suggestions let me know. Thanks!

I did a quick search, there are alot of guitars in that price range. Are you interested in any particular brand? Body shape? Pickups?

those are really different tones

Vintage strat and High output invader

Whatever it is it needs to be H/S/S
maybe save up and get a HSS standard stratocaster?

Check out some Fender strats. Both Blink & Jimi played 'em. I would go with what the other guy's said as far as pickups. HSS "Humbucker in the bridge, single in the middle & neck positions.

Only Fender HSS I could find is out of your price race. So here's a suggestion:

Just one of the TONS of guitars they have in your price range.

if i were u id save up a bit more and get a MIM strat with humbuckers or an epi LP

get a strat project...a nice alder body, get humbuckers though cos fender single coil pups suck more ass than jenna jamison (EMGs LH-100s are only mediocre, but cheap) a TOM bridge, a great set of strings (my fav happen to be Dean Markley Blue Steel), replace the headstock with a PRS one...
depending on where you wanna spend ur money, u could get EMG 81/60 or even PRS Tremonti Bass and Treble pups...
building ur own guitar, or getting the parts and getting it assembled at a shop, is exponentially cheaper than buying one.
