In that price range, you can get a nice MIM Stratocaster or an Epiphone SG

Those were the guitars I was looking at for my first one.

Would this be your first guitar? Do you already have an amp?

Johnson of any kind, squire stratocaster, some cheaper epiphones, I've seen /really/ cheap ESPs down there, you could look on craigslist for something used that might just be awesome...
