hey. i want to buy a strat style guitar after i get my amp. dont tell me about amp please. so i have no idea about strat style guitars except for strats. i've looked at ibanez, esp, jackson, but iono how they are. this is what i want:
strat style body
2 humbuckers(probably no HSH or anything like that)
24 frets
neck thru (dont care about fretboard that much but prefer ebony/rosewood)
good selection of finishes
OFR maybe kahler (please no bootleg LFR or edge ****)
preferably active pups but i can just swap em out anyways.
readily available on ebay/craigslist
$1000 USD or less brand new.

thanks

EDIT: btw. i dont have 1000 bucks to spend on a guitar. just saying 1000 new so i can buy for like 600-700 used fair condition.

Try to find a Fender Stagemaster. Unfortunately, you can only get em used cuz they stopped makin em a few years back, like in 2002 or so. I got mine for $200. It has a Floyd Rose and 24 frets. It's a great guitar. I love mine so much I'm gonna be buried with it. LOL!
If you want somethin new, get a Fender Jazzmaster. Those are similar to Stagemasters, but have a standard strat trem and different pickups. You can get em here, http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-Classic-Jazzmaster-Electric-Guitar?sku=518687, for $800.
