Hey there.
I've been saving up for a new guitar for awhile now, and ive decided that I want a guitar with amazing clean tones. I dont want to have to change the pickups. My budget is no higher than $800, and if you could post a link with it to musiciansfriend or something ill give you a hug.

For clean, a les paul with P-90's or a strat or tele w/ single coils. Most guitars with single coils sound pretty good clean.

If you want a good clean tone, you'd probably be better off going for a Fender amp rather than a new guitar, because 90% of your tone comes from your amp. But if you have your heart set on a new guitar in your price range, I'd reccomend the Fender Deluxe Players Strat, its a MIM strat with upgraded American parts, like Vintage Noiseless Pickups (which eliminate hum, which would be ideal for your wanted tone) and extra pickup possibilities. Single Coils have great clean tones. But always remember: try before you buy. Good luck!

Now back to buisness.
I was also considering
or amp. I currently have an Epiphone les paul standard, but the humbuckers just dont cut it!

Agreed 100%. The highway 1 isn't worth the extra cash from the mexican standard fender strat at all. Its basically just a guitar thats assembled in america with the same mexican parts as the standard. And with a poorer finish. Either get a standard mexican, a deluxa fender or the american fender.
Well, just to be like everyone else, here's my rig:

Fender American Stratocaster
Epiphone Les Paul Custom

I would suggest a strat or tele, both have great tones, or a Rickenbacker 650D, they are just under $800 and they have great clean tone, they have humbuckers designed to sound like single coils. but keep in mind nothign is going to sound great unless youve got a decent amp to play it through.
