So I'm planning on getting a new guitar in the near future. I already have a Fender Strat and two acoustics. So for this guitar, I was planning on getting something that'd be a little "heavier". The genres I'm looking to be playing with this new axe would be hard rock, but also some lighter stuff. (So no actives.) Budget would be around $700-$800. Bands that I enjoy would include Thrice (pretty much all their stuff), Alter Bridge, 12 Stones, etc. As far as aesthetics go, I would like something 'vintage' looking. (Think Tobacco burst, amber, flamed maple.)
I have tried a used Explorer and a Schecter C-1 and enjoyed both very much. But I'm open to any other suggestions.

You should invest in a 7 string tele or strat! The extra low string provided will help you keep the same style with a 6, but just an extra low to get a little heavier if you need too!

Look at the PRS Tremonti SE, it is an amazing guitar for the $. If you don't want tremontis name on your guitar look at the SE single cut, PRS SE custom 22.

A 7 string Tele would definitely be one of a kind. Ha. And yes, the Explorer is a Gibson. I was also thinking of a Schecter Solo 6. But they're pretty scarce around here...

Check out an ESP/LTD Strat or Les Paul copy. Maybe even an Explorer from them. Nice chunky humbucker sound, but they can be as heavy or light as you want them to be if you fool around with your volume and tone controls.
