Erm, you might want to look at the Ibanez Tubescreamer or the Digitech Bad Monkey instead, a lot of people really dig those. If you do want to go with Boss, the Blues Driver sounds good for (have a guess) blues, the SD-2 gives quite a bit of kick and the OS-2 is pretty versatile as you can have it as a distortion/overdrive/mix of the two pedal.
You can also look into a BBE Greenscreamer, Ibanez TS9/808/dx, Digitech Bad Monkey/Blues Driver, etc. There's a plethora of options, and suggestions, but, let YOUR ears tell you the final answer. Personally, I have a TS9dx, and I like it.

Boss OD3 is their best IMO. What do you want out of your OD pedal? Lots of grit? Just a nice clean boost? A little tube saturation? These are things to consider. Again, your ears is the final judge.

I have the same guitar in shoreline gold, and that's the only OD I use.

no one can give a proper answer with the limited info you gave.

and the type of guitar has little to do with it, we need to know what kinda sound you're going for and what kind of amp you're playing through.

I stay away from Boss pedals, I don't like them much to be honest. Have fun wasting your money though.

Yeah, they don't arrest/ticket hobos because they can't pay the fines. Then they hang out in the jail all day eating free food. There's no point.

You're perfectly entitled to like, or not like, whatever you want, but just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's a waste of money.

This person is right. If it's good enough for Jonny Greenwood, it's good enough for anyone.

i have the od3, havent used any others but this ones really good imo, i get a nice warm thick tone from it with my lp and it has good bass.
Something not-Boss. Take a look at the higher-end Danelectros, Ibanez, and, if you can afford it, Fulltone OD's.
