It seems like when it comes to rock and hard rock, there are many different brands being used, but when it comes to a blusey sound from a single coil guitar, it's almost always a strat or tele. Are there any reputable alternatives to such a guitar?

A Les Paul can get a nice, fat blues tone, but the Strat is designed for it really.

Well from what I understand what you're asking for is a guitar that has that single coil sound without actually being a Strat of Tele? Or do you mean just not Fender/Squier?

I just mean I'm looking for that single coil sound from a non-fender. I'm looking for quality sound, not entry level.

There was a custom shop schecter thread floating around here yesterday I believe, that guitar looked like it would smoke!

There are always a few luthiers in the Guitar Building thread who could probably build you something excellent as well.
