yeah from that kind of question i would assume you're newer to guitar so I would recommend getting a cheaper starter guitar.

Quality wise there are probably not far off one another. The minute you said funk though the Strat just popped into my head.
I take it you're going to be buying on-line as well? It's only my opinion but I don't buy anything from any maker till I've played it first. SHipping a reject back may cost you the same amount of money as travelling to the nearest good store where you can try them out first so that's something to consider.
Moving on.....

Well Personally I would say get the SG, The humbuckers are, in my humble opinion, very suitable for blues and classic rock. It can do Jazz fine (just role the tone knob all the way back), as for funk i'm not sure. It all really depends on what sound you're trying to recreate. Do you want to sound like SRV or more like (early) Eric Clapton?
Gibson Les Paul Traditional Gold Top

Actually Clapton played a Tele first, then went to a Les Paul (made famous on the Beano Album) which was later stolen before Cream could tour. Then he played other Gibsons before finally settling on a Strat.
Moving on.....
