You're in Serious Guitar territory with the budget. Id go for a U.S. made Strat on the second hand market. But I think you could also get an American special new for that price.

 

Can't comment on SGs. But I think a new Gibson is in range.

 

Must be nice to have that cash burning a hole in your pocket

Heh..I am till playing my Costco Strat. I did change out the pickups and did a bit of setup that cost more than the guitar kit itself! Sounds and plays OK at my level though. I was wondering myself if I should move up to better gear as I improve. Let us know what you decide.

In that price range, it's probably more like a new Gibson SG Special. I have one, and I do like it... BUT... the neck is chunky, and it;s poorly balanced(to the extent that I'm considering buying a Bigsby to add some weight to the heel end).

 

And having played a friend's SG standards(Gibsons, one with humbuckers and one with P90s), I can tell you they do feel very different(though not as good as my LP classic).

I'd buy a Strat in a heartbeat.  No point arguing one way or another, it's just what you prefer.

 

I'd definitely get in a shop and try out some guitars though, don't just buy something online cause it looks nice.

Besides, if looking nice was what you were after, the PRS SE range sits around his price point, and they're very pretty.

with Hendrix as your avatar it has to be a strat.. i have a white mexican standard with maple fretboard.. plays like a dream and the neck feels better then the warmoth neck on my partscaster.. the mexican standards from the last production years are a huge step up in quality.. even the electronics are US pots and switches.. i even left the ceramic pickus in the guitar.. i screwed them down almost flush to the pickguard.. they are very versatile and i like them better then the seymour duncan aps-1 in my partscaster.. only drawback is: the neck has only 21 frets
