Okay guys I've got £300 to spend on a new guitar.
I need something that can cover most major genres.
My band plays mostly RHCP style stuff.
Not looking for anything strat-like or anything for Br00tal metal.

Epiphone, Squier, whatever.....
Give me some recommendations guys

Oh and btw how are the Epiphone G-400's?
And yeah I cant really save up much more , I need it sometime this week

Epi Sg G-400s are amazing...
i got one and can definitely say it's one of the best guitars i've played that's cheaper than 500 quid.

it feels quite loose almost... and the fact it's slightly bigger than a normal guitar suits my style;
from RHCP to 'tallica.

Save up so you can get a better one than an Epiphone/Squier etc

well i don't particularly aim to recreate tones... but with a good amp and both pickups, i spose it'd be quite possible. The range is quite big.

you're kinda stopping yourself from getting a frusciante sound by saying "nothing strat-like."

the strat is a huge part of frusciante's sound, so if you want that you're gonna at least have to go with something with singlecoils.

I'm in the US, so I'm not sure if 300 pounds can pay for a set of balls.

Because here, a set is usually 1-6 million bones.

i feel the same way actually. i just get kinda bored of the shape from seeing it so often.

you could always buy something with humbuckers and get someone to do a coil tap for you.

+1 to the Gretsch. That would probably hit the sound you're looking for close enough on the head w/o being a strat.
