I've finally gotten myself into a blues rock band, but I have to keep my one guitar in drop B for my other band... so can y'all recommend me a good blues/rock/funk guitar for under $1000? I hate asking like this, I prefer to go out and try them, but for research purposes, I wondered what you all would think.

So?

Thanks in advance.

I think a Strat is calling your name. Used American or a nicer MIM can fit in that budget.

Ya, I've been thinking strat, only problem is I dont really like the necks, except on the SRV strat... I guess I could just get one and replace it with one of those necks later.

There's a bunch of different Strat neck shapes. I'd go play a bunch and see what you think. Personally I don't like the modern C shaped necks on the MIAs currently but I love the V neck on my American Deluxe.

What do you all think of the PRS Paul Allender? I really like its neck, what do you all think of the sound and the construction?

If you like its feel then do it! Any guitar can do blues and rock. They dont affect the tone that much. You and the amp are the tone. and maybe the pups.... >>.>>

It's a pretty good guitar. The pickups aren't that great for those styles. But it's under your budget so you can get something more suitable and maybe add coil taps. But in all honesty, any guitar will work fine. Just get something that feels good. If John Frusciante and SRV played Les Pauls instead of Strats, we would see those as the perfect guitar for those genres. They created they're own style and tone, there's nothing wrong with doing that yourself. I use my RG for all genres even though I also have a strat. Just play what ever is most comfortable since most guitars won't sound bad, just different. And there's nothing wrong with being different.

I must agree with everyone else. If you're asking for a guitar that can be clean enough for funk and dirty enough for rock then you needn't look further than a Fender Strat.

I'm probs gonna go with the PRS, and switch out the pups, probably for wilde twin blades. I would go strat, but Fender jacked their prices since I first started looking. The SRV strat used to be 1500, now it 2000!!!

Stratocaster by far.

That bluesy tone will blow you away.
And then you can turn it up and rock of course.
