I don't recommend passive pickups for any kind of blues tone. Ideally, you'd want a passive pickup with a reasonably low level of output.

craigslist. find an epi or a squire, i'd recommend a mexistrat, but that's around 300, and only has 21 frets. I don't know of a cheap guitar with 24 frets, though.

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.

epiphone les paul special II is a good guitar within your budget.
My bro has one and they sound pretty good...

+1 on the pacifica if it's metal enough.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Rondo, they've got plenty of stuff that fits the bill that just needs a setup and some tuners.

If you're going to change the pups and just get a beater for a while it can't hurt.

RG series (the lower end one for your range)Ibanez,great for its price and has 24 frets if you can find one,
Ibanez sz720fm,Ibbly RG350DX, Custom Tele-> Dunlop 535Q->RAT Pro co II-> Ibanez Fuzz->Marshall Haze 40.

I personally would go with an Agile Al-2000 les paul style guitar. Can't be beat on value, price is 199. Great sound, nice looks. Kurt is a good guy to deal with also. Check them out.
