I've been playing a Stratocaster rip-off made by Tenson... For 2 years now.
And it's about time, to change it out, but I don't really know which guitar, would fulfill my desires. So I've come to you guys, because you're way smarter than I, on guitars!
-------
I live in Denmark 17 years old, got a nice paying job.

Budget goes up to 1.500$ as the guitar.

The sound I want, is over in the (Heavy) Rock genre. Queens of the Stone Age-ish, Foo Fighters. Think Dave Grohl!

6 Strings, 22 frets or higher, I don't really know much about action, pickups and bridges, (I'm pretty open for suggestions, if you wanna add something.)

I'd prefer a new guitar, but used is also acceptable.

My current gear sucks donkey D***, and I will eventually replace it all.
Not gonna write in this box, because that's not how logic works.

Dave plays a semi-hollow Gibson. But really any HB guitar should work fine, the amp will make the most difference.

$1500 is a very solid guitar budget but i think you eluded to the fact that your gear is a touch low end. So, you might need to address the amp as well in which case $1500 is ok but might stretch a little. A lot of these really boil down to what feels good to you and what style you like. There are a lot of solid choices that will handle the music you like.
Personally i would pick up a mid level-upper level solid state Amp (or a modeling amp) and an American Fender Strat. But as i eluded too these are always about personal preference, you wouldn't go wrong with a Les Paul or an SG either. Take your time, look around and play as many different guitars that you can get your hands on. Read lots of reviews, keeping in mind these are not always accurate but look for trends. If 10 out of 12 reviews say the tuners are crap in reviews then they are, if one guy is bitching about the finish then it is most likely his broken brain. Have fun and score some sweet gear for yourself... then play the hell out of it.

"alluded", not "eluded."

To allude means to refer to indirectly. The verbs to allude and to mention are close in meaning, but to allude is less direct. It can be translated as to hint at or to offer an indication about.
To elude means to avoid, to evade, or to escape from.

Yeah

josh homme plays a variety of things... a lot of matons which look like they might have proprietary pickups (or not, i've never tried one )

But yeah something with at least a bridge humbucker.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
