    Hi I am in the market for:

    1. Vintage Fender Stratocaster
    2. Les Paul '52 Gold Top w. P90's.

    Obviously going out and getting the real thing should cost $20,000 each. Re-issues from Fender and Gibson can cost anywhere from $1,500 - 4,000.

    I might be asking the impossible question, but are there lesser mainstream brands, versions, lawsuit copies, etc that exist? (i.e. Tokai's, MIJ Fenders, Collings). I would love to own two guitars that capture the vintage Strat/LP tones for a fraction of the price ($500-1,200 range).
