Strat, it's good enough for Malmsteen. Mexican Strats are obviously of lesser quality but it will still do you justice.

Since you're tight on budget, I say a Jackson DXMG

Don't go Dean and DEFINITELY don't go BC Rich with your budget. Only their high-end guitars are worth buying.
Go with Ibanez, ESP/LTD, or Schecter.
And there are huge differences in the necks of those 3 brands, so there's not really any tough decisions to be made, just what's comfortable.

Ibanez or jackson for shred.

DBZ guitars, love'em. Especially their Les Piccolo model.

ibanez, jackson, or dean usually come pretty well stacked out of the box

the neck profile on his strat is much different than a normal strat. So this won't work for him.

I would suggest that you make an attempt to find a used RG550. Great guitar, can be modded extensively, great neck, can be found pretty cheap as well.
Typing in purple makes me look a bit like an elitist. I highly enjoy it.
