fender mexican strat, sounds great, but is prty cheap, very similar sound to american strat, and just as reliable.

rhythm guitar is a style of PLAYING guitar, not a type of guitar. Get a Fender MIM or Epiphone Les Paul, depending on what you play. Or look to ESP LTD's if you're more into metal and heavier stuff.
Gibson SG Standard
Orange Rocker 30 combo
Fulltone OCD

what amp do you use? otherwise even though its under your budget RG321MH then upgrade the pickups

Fat Tele? Tele is my favourite guitar for rhythm playing.

Fat Strat and LP Standard/Studio are good.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Dont you hate people wo title a thread "You got 2 See this", then its just a question regarding guitar types.

In fairness i dont think this person deserves any help as i now have to live with the disapointment of not seeing anything of interest.

P.S as said above Rhythm is a style of playing and not a type of guitar. If you go into a shop and ask for a Rhythm guitar your going to look like a putz. Also their are no lead guitars, a guitar is a guitar its how you play it that defines the style (or lack of).

Guitars aren't "heavy" or metal, it depends on how you play them and what amp you use. A guitar is a guitar, period.

I'd say an Epi LP or a Fat Strat.

^a Schecter Hellraiser with a EMGs is much more of a metal guitar then a fender strat with singlecoils


what kind of amp do you have (pleassssssse dont say spider or mg)
#14
A good idea, basing off the guy above me would be to get a Fat strat, and Put an EMg in the Bridge, then you can use the Middle and neck for classic rock and Blues, and the EMG fo rmetal and **** like that.

yeh but if your having an active in the bridge then all the other pickups need to be actives unless you want a hard wiring job

Just wire the passives to one tone pot, and the Active to the special pot. Thats it, I think, though Im probally wrong or understating it.

Actually the guitar isn't more or less metal, the pickups give more of a metal sound.

+ for most people it's a lot easier to shread on a thin ibanez neck then on a round les paul neck, or even fender necks

mabye check out the EPI SG G400's, i've heard good things from them, even tho i think you can do much better with a schecter for just a little more money
#20
do you want a really deep bassy sound or a brighter more treble-ish sound
get a les paul for a really deep bassy sound
and a fat tele for the more treble sound

Why would you get in trouble? You're likely to be disliked on UG for your lack of coherence, but there's nothing in the rules against it.

I'd say go with a Schecter Hellraiser... very good for the money. And I think by rythmn you mean low tuned stuff, which this would well suit. If you're gunna be tuning to anything below C standard then go for the 7 stringed version.
#24
you could probably get an epiphoone casino for that much
thats a damn good rythm guitar
with humbuckers too
