I second this. An HSS strat-shape can go as low as $900 customized depending on how you make it.

You could have one built to your specs by a luthier. Someone like
http://www.onyxforgeguitars.com/

There are also places like Carvin which offer near-custom guitars.

There are also great production guitars. There's no "best" except to you and we ain't you.

Check out RAN custom guitars. They might be a touch over $2500 but there supposed to be seriously nice guitars for the money.

It appears that you need versatility. Get a GOOD strat.

it's all preference at that price point really. The best you could probably do is to get a custom job built to your exact specs.

Go custom with a less known brand, that's my suggestion.
Guitars

- Epiphone Les Paul Standard Ebony Finish
- Hohner Hc-06 Classical guitar

Amplifiers

-Roland Cube 30x

- Vox Wah-wah

He may not be looking to go custom.

Those guitars can take months and months to make it to your door.


First of all, What other gear do you have?

Second, what kind of a guitarist are you? Do you gig? Or are you a strictly bedroom player?

To quote your profile:

"I have been playing guitar for about a year and a half now. Im trying to make a band, but nobody wants to sing or play bass around where I live....."

I highly doubt that you need a 2500 dollar instrument,especially when you already have so much gear listed on your profile.IMO that money could be better spent on an amp and pedals,recording gear,or any number of other things.Also,saying "What's the best?" is kind of pointless,it's very subjective and at that price range there are so many options that it's hard to get anything worth while as a response.
