Epiphone Les Pauls and Gibson SG's. I dunno if they are the best, but I would say some of the best.

I love my sg faded special... but the thing with gibson's faded series, is that their faded series basically gets gibson's last choice for wood... so sometimes you might get one with some decent wood and a decent neck, or you might get one with a meh body and/or neck... haha

but yeah..that epiphone above looks pretty sexy...

Fenders are pretty much all great guitars, I'd agree with you that they are a good buy for under $1000 (even if I don't like them much).

I've heard bad things about the cheap Gibsons, I think the upper Epis are better than the lower Gibbys (e.g. Elitist).

As far as ESP, yuck. I'm not a fan of any of their guitars, but to each their own; I'd never spend my money on one, if I want a guitar that looks like a Jackson I'll spend a bit more and get a Jackson!!!

How about Kramers? They are great playing guitars, and you can get tons of them for way less than $1000.

Heck, you can pick up some lower-end Steinbergers for that price, they're pretty nice guitars if you can get into them.

There's some pretty good Ibanez offerings for under $1000 as well, especially in the S-series.

My money, however, would be on Jacksons. You can find great quality used Soloist for right around $1000, and I'd wager to say they'd blow away most other guitars under $1000, especially in terms of quality.
