a new electric guitar for playing blues-rock. I'm just looking for some input because I honestly have no idea what to get... I don't really want to spend more than 700ish. Just kind of wondering what has a really bluesy(this word looks odd) tone/feel. THANKS!

A Strat would a good thing for blues-rock.

How much are MIAs over there, because that would really kick ass at it.

epiphone les pauls and dot hollowbodies are good.

Epi Les Paul?
Standard Strat?
Gibson SG?

Or get something less well known but just as good:

^^^^ All good suggestions. I didn't include the dot hollowbody cus I don't know anything about it. You can't go wrong with a Strat or Tele, Epi LPs will cover the rock end no doubt, bluesy rock (stones etc.) most likely and you can use em for blues, many bluesmen do, but you won't get the classic blues sound such as SRV and other Strat users.

I play blues on both a Tele and a Dot. Both sound fantastic through my Epi Valve Junior.

Strat, Tele, Epi LP with a pickup change (or a removal of the pickup covers), Agile AL 4000/AL3000M (arguably some of the nicest guitars for the price).
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Go for a hollowbody. As long as you dont need alot of gain, and as long as you will play more blues on it than rock, it will give you exactly what you want. That rich bluesy TONE.

If you're interested in some Southern Rock too, nothing screams it louder than a Dean ML or a Caddy like this one:
