i play a lot of red hot chili peppers,muse,incubus and i was wondering what's the best guitar i could get for 400$ or less. I dont have the luxury of testing it first since im only ordering it. Thanks guys.

eurgh, no testing is a bit of a gamble.

go to your local gweetar store and try a few out, it'll give you some taste of them.

though judging by your tastes, models like strats, teles or les pauls should be fine.

Fender Standard Strat or Fat Strat. You'll be able to find them any shop, unless you're in the middle of nowhere.

HSS Strat aka Fat strat

thanks guys! that helped a lot. at first i was doubting a mexican made strat. but not so much now.
#10
wait im kinda a noob here. what's the difference between maple and rosewood?
#11
in noob terms maple is like blonde wood.... rosewood is dark


maple has a brighter sound
#12
go with maple!!!

ill tell you....i presume you are talking about the fretboard yeah?
well maple is a pale yellow looking wood on fretboards and rosewood is a brown colour.

maple gives the sound a brighter edge whereas rosewood gives a warmer sound.

the tonal aspects dont mean much regards fretboards in this case so just pick whichever you think looks better.........which would be maple

I think not being able to pick out your own MIM strat is a problem. There are a lot of duds and you might have to send the guitar back if it's a crappy one.

Just to post something different (and in my opinion superior to a standard strat):

Godin Radiator
Godin SD
Far better build quality than MIM Fenders (Godins are built in Canada).

You should definitely consider them.

That's because they're the most versatile guitars on the market. I'm guessing you play a BC Rich to be different and kvlt?
