Hello you all It is time to buy new guitar, I've sold my old squier strat in cause of problems with truss rod, and now I'm looking for as versatile guitar as possible. My budget is 300-350$ for used guitar (so it's around 500$ for new one). I already have few model's.

I'm thinking about Fender Strat HSS Modern Player, Epiphone Casino and Squier Custom Tele HH. I like all this guitars, I know they are not so high quality but I don't tend to look on quality because I can get rid of some issues by myself in garage. But, what most important for me is playabilty of neck, pups. So I'm really into RHCP and JF stuff (usually strats), but also like classic rock, blues rock and some jazz standards (ES all the way). In fact I'm really confused, what should I choose, because I really like all this genre's in the same level. I don't know if ES will suit for example funk strumming, but in the other hand I'm not sure about buying another strat/tele in cause of getting more into jazz etc. Thanks for any help.  

Sorry for grammar mistakes, eng is not my primary language.

I used to hate strats with a passion.  Now it's my current guitar.  You can do anything with it.

Classic Rock, Blues Rock  and some Jazz standards all lean (to me at least) toward an H-H Gibson.... with Fender SSL-1 loaded Strat for Frusciante vibes....

Guitaraxe  That's the matter of my question I can choose between tele and strat, but when comes this sweet jazz-blues look of epi casino I'm blown away and dont know what to do

A happy medium might be a Squier Vintage Modified 72' Tele Thinline.... it's semi hollow with wide range humbuckers so it has a nice jazzy/blues vibe and should be able to dip it's feet so to speak in the styles you mentioned.... $450 new and if you don't mind ordering online you could pick out a nice looking one from  Sweetwater.

I'm going to say a strat shaped HSS as well. You can always split the bridge humbucker and put a neck mini humbucker with a split if you need it.

Besides Fender you could do a Charvel, Jackson, Ibanez, or a ton of other makes depending on what type of neck, frets, headstock, etc you want.
Guitars:
Jackson Kelly KE3 - MIJ (Distortion/Jazz)
Jackson DKMGT Dinky (EMG 81/85)
ESP E-II Eclipse Custom (JB/'59)
ESP LTD EC-1001FR (EMG 81/60)
Fender MIM Strat

Amps:
Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster 212
Laney IronHeart IRT-Studio
Peavey Vypyr 30
Peavey ReValver Amp Sims
TOOOO many T.C. Electronic Pedals. . .

In that price range I recommend Agile. Whatever modal. The best bang for the buck if you are not buying new.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.
