Well you didn't give us much input on what you want...
Stat, Tele, SG, Exploer, Firebird, Superstrat, Flying V? Tremolo or fixed bridge? Humbuckers or coils? Color?

There are so many guitars, if you tell us what sort of looks/pickups/tone you prefer (or seen somewhere that you like) we can discuss it and give you some cool options.

i don't really mind but i don't like flying V and explorer. that kind of guitars
i like Esp but does that compare good with myn style and etc and budget.
i want tremolo, i don;t have 1 color in sight if its not like pink ore something ;p you know what i mean smile.gif

Cheers

If you want single coil I agree a mex strat is a great choice. If you prefer humbuckers, go with the Ibanez mentioned smile.gif

I can also recommend Mex Strat, but that depends of the tremolo. I chose this LTD because it has FR installed already. But if you need basic tremolo function (just to vibrate lightly the notes, and chords) then strat tremolo system will work. You can always upgrade it later to wilkinson for better performance.

Definitely tryout both single coil and humbucker pickups before you decide what you like more.
