You can get a charvel Model 2, 3, 4, maybe a 5 or 6 for that, along with the 375, 475, and maybe a 550XL. More than a few various Jackson Pros can be had for that. MIJ Ibanez RG5xxs and Sabers are common as well in that range, along with some more basic USA Kramers. You may stumble on a Fender/Ibanez Heartfield Talon or a MIM Fender Richie Sambora for that price range too. USA BC Rich Gunslingers can be had for that or a little more

Fender has a MIM Fat Strat for $500 with a Floyd. Look it up.

I agree with CJRocker on the Charvel model series. Absolute bang for buck there. Also, there is the Peavey Nitro series. They are Made in Usa and have Kahler bridges and can be had in the $200-$300 range easily.

5150 combo
GSP1101 + Tech 21 PE60

GUITARS:
ESP LTD M-255 w/ SD Full Shred

Some of them are out of stock at the moment, but if you fancy something like a Kramer (the ultimate 80's super-Strat), well then... go get a Kramer. The Striker series are within your budget, American Alder-bodied guitars with maple necks, a range of humbuckers and single coil configerations, and come with licensed Floyd Rose bridges that can be easily swapped out for a real Floyd Rose (which should still add up within your budget in total).

The only real downside with them is that they're made in one of the old Epiphone factories (after the main Epiphone production moved to China), and Gibson own and run the Kramer brand pretty much in the same way they run the Epi brand - so obviously, you can't expect them to be the same quality as the American-made custom shop models from the late 80's - but for a $250-$350 super-Strat, you can't get much better.

No logical reason for it to be less, MusicYo's prices are already below the initial RRP. Maybe MF bought in a big job lot at once, or it's old stock, and they need to get rid of them.

Either way - damn, shame MF don't ship to here, if they did I'd be jumping on that myself. Can't say no to a decent guitar priced a hundred less than usual.

Yea that kramer with the maple board is pretty badass. For $250 it's an easy guitar to buy if it plays well. Plus, all those pup options when you're ready...

I think I'll just get the Kramer and put a real Floyd or schaller in it

Check out the LTD - MI and MII series. They're some pretty sweet super-strat looking guitars. If you have the cash.

The KH series aint bad either.
#23
Just buy a real 80's Kramer from ebay. If you're patient you could find a MIA under your budget.

Bolded the part that matters. The ESP M-I and M-II are about four times more than OP's budget.

For $500, I would REALLY buy used... the quality of something used and MIJ is going to blow away anything made in China, Korea, or Indonesia like what is being brought up today, and you'll get a much better featured guitar, often with pickups and trems equal to name brands like Duncan and Floyd Rose.
