    Add me to the Reverend list. Great value for the money. If you're open to new things, I suggest you try out a Reverend with Railhammer pickups, like the Kingbolt RA (I have one). So versatile, and all sounds are great and usable.

    There are so many options out there for the price point and what you are looking for. Unlimited really.

    A used 2013 Gibson SG Standard.

    Sounds great, plays like you're driving a rocket ship. Two entire barrels of monkeys.

    I just got this Palermo & it's KILLER!! I left high output PUPS 20 years ago so I planned on changing them but they sound pretty great so I'm leaving them for now. The quality of his work is really great (the frets are perfect) I've bought a bunch of custom shop 335's & didn't like any of them & I loved this guitar right out of the box. Plus it was only $1,435 shipped = really cheap for what you get.

    This is the right answer. ;)

    There's wraptail and TOM variants, 60s and 50s neck options, finishes and materials to die for and craftsmanship to match.

    I literally bought my first as a beater to leave out all the time.

    Only down side is that you start to like and value it more than the guitar it was supposed to stunt double for. :D

    Used PRS.
    But if you really like Gibsons, check out older used Japanese copies - Greco, Burny, Orville. There are 70's, 80s & 90s Les Pauls, V's, and Firebirds that are as good as Gibsons for cheap (under a grand), especially if you replace the pickups.
