So i have a bit of time to decide, but i'm looking for either my second acoustic guitar or second electric guitar. not sure which yet, but i have a $400-650 USD price range. I play through a Peavey Vypyr 120 Tube Modelling Amp. for an electric i want a guitar with great clean sounds but also can dig into some heavier sounds if necessary. For an acoustic i'm just looking for a high quality guitar.
So far i've been recomended:
Seagull Coastline
PRS SE Singlecut
Any more suggestions or thoughts on these?

I agree with this.

I have one and I can play pretty much anything on it. Being a Fender and a Tele it does amazing cleans but with the HB's it can get way heavier tones if need be. It's a bit above your price range but if you don't mind going used you could probably find one in that range.

You could get a MIM HSS strat for that price. Or you could try a Schecter Hellraiser as long as your amp is big enough to handle EMG's.
Epi Elitist LP Plus
Marshall Class 5
Vox AC30 CC2

does the hellraiser have a nice clean sound, it seems a bit heavy to me?

Quite. The 89 is very warm and full. Coil-tapped, it's very strat like and sparkly. But some people don't like active pickups.

The 81 isn't great for cleans, but coil-tapped, they're passable. Using the tone knob helps a bit. I haven't played a guitar with actives recently... I'm not the best person to explain it to you, but yeah.

I'd try to find a used Schecter C-1 Classic, or buy a C-1/Solo-6 (LP shaped) Custom.

Guess i'll make a new thread to get a vote between a few guitars...

Im not a big fan of the hellraisers but the Classics are very very nice guitars. Ive seen them go used from 300-550 USD. But also other things to look at are HSS Strats, SH Teles. Either MIM or if you want used MIA. Even the highway 1s are good and stuff too.
