seeking new electric guitar

ok, this is it...

Reason: i am now in a new band and i find that it would be easier if i added another electric to my collection and left my strat at the practice joint (plus, the good ole strat isnt working out for me as well as it used to...)

My Style: alternative, mostly. thats what i focus on and my newest guitar will be used for. like the following bands; athlete, muse, lost ocean, ruth, phantom planet...as much as i dont like them, a similar style to nirvana...im into guitar synth stuff a lot (muse-like), but i cross it with somewhat heavy distortion at times...

My Likings: im a fender guy, so far. i have always liked my strat until now. im a fan of tele's, but have never owned one (HH, 72's, standards, highway one, and lite ash). i like the jaguar HH a good bit too. ive looked at godin SA's, but never played one. ive considered the PRS singlecut SE and schecter tempest. i prefer jumbo frets, but i can compromise for the right guitar. hum hum or singles, no mix. not worried about woods or anything like that. 4 knobs is best.

My Range: maximum of 1k...that'll probably never fly though. 600 is the true max. i dont mind to buy and then work. if i had to customize a little to get the perfect setup, thats fine by me.

I'll second the schecter c-1, they're awesome guitars, although I am contemplating selling mine in the somewhat near future.

Different tone than that of a Gibson...the alder body gives it a more rounded tone, I think.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

If you are big into synthy sounds, Id get an old roland ready strat. They include a fender strat, but also have a built in synth pickup.

Just an option thats out there, and not for everyone. This is one that gives a decent description...

here is another

Those are not in any way endorsements for those particular items, but to provide you with possible leads.

Remember for the guitars with the synth pickups, you still need an outboard synthesizer.

yeah, but thats a built in option for expansion that someone into synthy stuff might find really useful. You can configure it through midi to control the synth in a keyboard as well...

Fender Jags IMO is an awesome guitar. That's what I'll get when I go into the market for a new electric guitar.

the Jaguar is definitely an acquired taste for guitar...I can see it being used for getting a sound similar to Phantom Planet, but nowhere near Muse.
