u could get the guitar and buy a pickguard that is the same color, it wont look too bad. or u could just take it off and try and fill the holes somehow (if they stick out that much)

5-10 watt tube amps are good for practice, too.

Now, on topic, there are Dean and Esp-ltd flying v's and explorers without pickguards. The Epi Futura FX is black on black, and the pickguard isn't terribly noticeable.

The Gibson Explorer Pro is pickguard free.


And significantly over his budget of $1,000. If you can stretch your budget though I'll second an Explorer Pro.
