im in the market for a new guitar. My budget is right around the $1200 mark. I have a few guitars that i really like. Id just like some suggestions from yall. I like to play more of the rock to hard rock and some metal.
In no particular order:
PRS SE Custom 24
Gibson Les Paul Traditional
Fender Strat American Deluxe
etc.
Im not really loyal to any brand. Im open for suggestions and want to hear what yall think.
Thanks

If you ask me both the gibson and fender there are a step (maybe a couple of steps) above the PRS SE. You could possibly scored a used "real" USA PRS for that kind of money, if you're OK with used (a CE or something like that).

You probably know this already, but just in case you don't, if you play a lot of hard rock and metal you'd probably want the HSS or HSH versions of the deluxe strat.

You have a lot of options around $1200. I'm not in the USA so I'm not that well up on prices there.
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.

go with a Carvin - you can pretty much get most models at that price, custom made in America. Mine has been my main instrument for 3 or 4 years now. I just quit playing my other guitars when I got it.

Godin (made in Canada) and Carvin (made in USA) are excellent suggestions. You might also want to check out Fernandes JP (made in Japan) or SHIN guitars. (The Korean ones kick ass, too.)

You may also be able to find a custom guitar in that price range.

I'd also look at Reverends. They're made in Korea, so they cost less, and you get a LOT for your money.
