price range = 500$ and less?

from pop punk(angels and airwaves) to some nice low gain like 3 days grace, linkin park,
metal(skid row, metalica.) very nice distortion( as well as "non-distortion" kinda like a pop punk sound that doesnt sound like it uses much gain, but stil pretty nice sounding). sexy low and high distortion. orgasming tone. but all under 500$..

goood cleans

similar sounds

john mayer
blink-182 (the last album has gorgeous sounding)
linkin park ( cool distortion)
thrice (cool distortion)
cool versatile guitar?
amp is in sig.
i guess not a thick neck cuz im gonna use this guitar for my band instead of borrowing my friends telecaster.
thanks to all
