I'm in the process of selling a few expensive guitars and replacing them with less expensive instruments. If all goes well, I'll be looking to fill the "strat spot" with a maximum investment of $1100 but I don't mind spending less. Definitely prefer used over new for the savings/bang for the buck. I like meaty necks and vintage tone. I'm not married to a brand. In my sights are perhaps a G&L legacy, Fender (AVRI, Am. Std., EJ - need to research neck profiles on these). I think Nash, Dano, K-line will be out of my budget. What others do you suggest I look for?
