What's a good, sturdy guitar for playing anything from classic rock to third-wave ska? I like to dabble in different genres so I'm looking for versatility. I'm also trying not to pass the $400 range, so I'll probably be shopping used once I figure out what guitar I should get.

Mexican Fat Strat?

+1 [or +2?].

Also consider a Les Paul (used a lot in 3rd wave Ska), or a semi-hollow (ES-335, etc.).

Ibanez guitars are also pretty good, although im not sure how well they would do third-wave ska

Should do it well.
And mahogany/non-basswood Ibby can play Ska.
