I currently want to buy myself a new guitar. I am a big fan of Pop-Punk Rock such as New Found Glory, Blink, A Cursive Memory, FTSK.

I am currently making my own custom pop-punk tone guitar which is similar to a Tom Delonge Strat, I just want a guitar already made which will suit my style of playing and my style of music.

Price Range: $300- $1500

Please help me out, Thanks.
fender fat strat? and since you're an aussie and i assume you're working in aud they go for just $999 so well within your budget.
