Okay, here's a taste of Heritage (with apologies to gtrdave for laying it down) :

Well, I don't know where Bob's run off to, but what I have in mind would be a semihollowbody with a mahogany back, birdseye maple front (or flame or quilted, even), and a switching convention allowing you to get any pickup combination you'd want, and emulating the sounds of a Strat, Tele, or LP, so you can get all the jazzy clean sounds you want, or perhaps just add a smidgen of that old time distortion, just to make it taste sweet, a la Muddy Waters or something.

And you can do this all for under $400, and look like you paid $2K.

Incidentally, if you wanted to kick in an extra $300, since it's within your budget, you'd have a small and streamlined vibrato system more dynamic than a floyd, and at the same time you'd not have to rout any wood out of the back of the guitar, thus increasing sustain and resonance, and, no, it's not a Bigsby.

Chesh

PS - If you only use the neck pickup, we can work with that, but there are other many wonderful and rich possibilities.

So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

Not necessarily. Why do you ask? And do you mean coil-tapping or coil-splitting?

Oh. I meant coil-tapping, the switching off of one coil on a humbucker and therefore turning a humbucker into a single coil.

Right . . . and you didn't mean coil-tapping. That's not coil-tapping. That's coil-splitting.

And why do you ask?

(short answer) Depends on the pickup. You can split anything, but you have to ask 1) is it worth the effort on the stock pickups?, and 2) does it sound good split?

And personally, I prefer the clean sound of a solidbody to a hollow.

A guitar like the Epi Sheraton will sound very different than, say, a Tele Thinline. Not all "semi-hollow" guitars are the same degree of "hollow". That said, I have a bandmate with an Epi Sheraton II which is very nice, so I don't think quality is as much of an issue as what you just would plain rather have.

I'm very sorry I haven't returned to my thread yet - stuff's been going on lately.

Anyway, I comprised a short list of guitars you guys could sift through for me. I also understand that like Rainer said, it might depend on what I'd rather have, so maybe there's nothing anyone can say to help. Here's my list:

Gibson SG Classic with P-90s, Epiphone Sheraton II, Epiphone Casino, Fender '72 Tele Thinline, Schecter C-1 Semi-Hollowbody, and the Gibson Les Paul Vintage Mahogany. I guess I can add Heritage in there, but I've never played one before.

Mmm... All very nice axes. I'd personally stay away from the SG, because it is the ugliest guitar ever concieved by man.

I thought that was almost every Dean electric guitar ever made, not the SG...

or BC Rich...

Woah, that was impressive. You said "SG" and "ugly" in the same sentence and weren't struck down by lightning.

Yeah, I'm probably going with either the Sheraton II or the '72 Thinline Tele as of today.

Note the "ever concieved by man" part.

Both good choices, I'd spring for the Thinline Tele, personally, it's more my style.
