Ibanez sz's are good value for money, neck-thru, Seymour Duncan pickups, but they have a tune-o-matic style bridge, for a standard one without flame maple there around $500 Aus. Otherwise check schecter out, there extremely good value aswell, you could get a very descent one for under $1000, good Australian site is www.bmusic.com.

good luck.
Schecters are great, probably a blackjack is your best bet, and sorry im not sure the amount in australian but they're about $550 USD
