I had to vote Beast, as my JEM is so far ahead of any other guitar I've tried playability-wise and sound-wise.  That set me about about 1600 though.

On the other hand, I also love my Gibson SG as a sling around, gigging guitar, adn that cost me about 300 second hand.

My first guitar ( 1984 ) was an SG copy. It was made by Avon under Rose Morris. Wasn't a bad guitar, but one day the treble pickup wasn't working, so I took the pickup apart, covers off etc, and what a suprise when I found there was only a single coil behind the cover, the case was half empty,ha ha, what a con. Wondered why it used to be noisy and squeal when it was working.

p.s I still voted budget. If the neck is good, wood is good, feels good to play, stick some decent pickups in and you are sorted.

I consider all my guitars bargains.

I got my ESP MV 300 for 250 when it was worth 900.
I got my Ibanez RGT 2020 for 800 when it was worth 1500.
I got my Ibanez Rg 7321 for 250 when it was worth 350.

And got my Engl......well for an undisclosed fee.....for now.

All of them being brand new as well.

i generally go for budget guitars, about 600 and then replace the pots and so on.when youve finished you can quite easily end up with something to rival an american model of twice the price.
