      I have a Route 101 Solimar Custom (strat clone w/angled headstock) that I paid about $300 for back in 2000. I've bought and sold over a dozen guitars in that time, but the Route 101 has been a constant. It has a great neck, it sounds good, and it's dependable.

          My hands-down favorite is the Squier Bullet Strat with trem, that came out about a year ago. Excellent modding platform IMHO. The neck is really nice too, with the vintage headstock, rosewood fretboard and medium jumbo frets. The stock pickups are pretty decent too, especially the neck pup. I've modded a daphne blue and SB, and I just ordered a fiesta red one, which will become "coral pink" (salmon) in a month or two. Fully modded, i've only got maybe $230 invested in either one of them, including the cost of the guitar ($75-$100 each).

                My Agile AL-2000.

                (would've said my 2nd Tele was my favorite - but it's disqualified by $8)

                  I have tons of >$350 (cost to me) guitars, though a lot were bought used.

                  Will post the rest in another post. Don't really have a fave, each is what it is.

                    Peavey Predator Plus.

                    It's a Korean-built fat strat based on the Wolfgang, but with a Fender-style bridge and locking tuners instead of a Floyd. The green transluscent finish is soooooo pretty, and it gives strat tones better than any non-US Fenders I've picked up.

                      Used Aria Pro II or maybe Westone. Really solid guitars for not much $$$.

                            My fav is the ultimate budget guitar in my opinion, SX SST57 Stop Tail under $100 new.
