I have saved up 1500$ and want to blow it on a strat or les paul type guitar. I see that the 1500$ market is full of great deals and lots of innovative strat type guitars exist like: 1. Musicman cutlass 2. Musicman stingray 3. John Page ashburn classic 4. Ibanez prestige talman And there may be others which I don't know of. Which do you think is best for blues rock country jazz metal? What are the merits and demerits of each guitar listed above? Currently I am favoring the stingray. What are your thoughts on this?
