It is very important to note that some musical styles do share guitar models. Just like the fender stratocaster, you can use it for both rock and blues. A gibson les paul is just as good as a strat in playing a wailing lead. However, it is important to know that making your own kind of music on the guitar of your choice is part of the fun and you should not really let the guitar musical style constrain you. I will list some popular music styles and classic guitars that most people associate with those styles. This list is by no means exhaistive but does include recognised standard bearers on the respective genres:
  • Rock: fender stratocaster, gibson les paul and SG, ibanez RG and signature series, Paul Reed Smith, Tom Anderson
  • Heavy metal: Gibson explorer, flying v and SG, fender stratocaster, Ibanez iceman
  • R&B: Fender stratocaster, Gibson ES-335
  • Jazz: Gibson ES-175, Super 400 L-5, Epiphone Emperor Regent
  • New age, new acoustic: Taylore Grand Concert, Ovation Balladeer
  • Acoustic blues: National steel, Gibson J-200
  • Folk: Dreadnoughts and Grand Concerts By martin, taylor, collings, gibson J-200
  • Classical: Ramirez, Hopf, Khono, Humphrey
  • Electric blues: Fender telecaster, strat, gibson les paul, gibson es-355
  • Country: fender telecaster,strat, gretsch 6120
  • Bluegrass: Martin dreadnought, taylor dreadnought, Gallagher dreadnought Although the list contains guitars that people normally associate with given styles, you should never let that limit your creativity. Play the music you want to play on the guitar you want to play on it! In other words, never mind what some chart tells you. So long as you like a particular guitar, do get it!
