please tell me what guitar to buy

Recommendation please...

I'm looking for a guitar to put a hipshot trilogy bridge on. Basically I want to get a cheap beater guitar (means ~$400 USD) which has a strong neck that can handle the additional tension.

I would like something that has both humbuckers single coil (so coil tap is good).

I prefer semi hollowbody... I like the resonance.

Anyone have experience with the chinese cheapies out there? Will the necks handle the additional tension? Or should I not worry about it, maybe most modern guitars can handle the additional tension?

If you don't know the trilogy:
Trilogy > Store > Hipshot Products

I could just get something like this and replace the pickups:
SX Furrian / H / RN NA Semi Hollow - RondoMusic.com

Beater, indeed... do these play as poorly as one might expect?

I believe there's a Squier Telly with a single coil bridge pu, humbucking neck pu, and semi-hollow body.
