An American Strat, because it's an upgrade from my crappy MIM model that has an unrepairable bridge pickup tone knob.
get the best ESP u can. if u still got money left just get a custom paintjob or something, the guitar will be good enough as it is.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!
A parker Pm 20, just bought one and Ive got to say it is the best thing ever. Ive never had it go out of tune since I bought it. Warm lush clean sounds, better than a les paul, and great distortion. Also has coil tapping for my chili peppers stuff. Fast neck and damn sexy. Best thing Ive ever bought.

Squier Jagmaster, just because I could get the parts and turn it into a fender jaguar and modify the pickups cheaper than to buy an actual fender jaguar

Minus you know, wood quality, If I had a grand I would buy a guitar I didn't have to modify to death to get a good tone.

I'd by a high end Washburn. They aren't themost common thing in the world but they are awesome.
I listen to music and I don't need your opinions about what I listen to.
A good schecter
