I normally play songs from sublime (almost all of them), the expendables, pepper, go! jimmy go!, goldfinger, and a lot of other stuff. some songs that aren't ska i'd like to use with the guitar is anything from nirvana. i've been thinking of the s-470 from ibanez cause brad used one, but i heard the problems people with the trem have experienced. basically, i want something with the sound and maybe a vibrato kind of bridge.
Fat Strat, '72 Deluxe Tele, SG or Ibanez SA series all are good options.

oh yeah? well larry king the slayer guitarist owns bc rich guitars. (i think)
Tbh, tone isn't really an issue in most ska-punk, so you could probably get away with just about any guitar, expect a guitar with active pickups.

I'd put the money more towards an amp.

EDIT: Look into getting a Marshall JCM800 or JCM900. You can always a/b switch it with your Fender for your cleans.

Anything other than a telecaster is witchcraft for ska. Although you did say "ska-punk", and i'm thinking more along the lines of The Specials. You cant go wrong with a tele though
