this might ound stupid, but with a les paul, a strat and schecter why do you want/need another guitar? You ahve just about every tone possiblity covered i would have thought.

335 are good, do well for blues, jazz, rock and pop.

Teles are good, rock, country, pop, even jazz if fitted with some humbuckers.

PRS'
s are supposed to be good, a tonal cross betweeen the strat and les Paul.

sorry i should have given a tad more info, yeah i can get pretty much any tone i want but the strat is very uncomfortable for me so i dont play it often i got it in a "oh ****" kind of moment because it was at a local pawn shop for $150, im used to playing bigger guitars so ill have to check out that gretsch thanks ranger01,

Yea, hollowbodies are my thing. My suggestions out of the ones from that post would be the Godin or the Sparrow (the sparrow is actually a Gretsch G5120 that is upgraded substantially)

I would look into hollow bodies and possibly some teles.

Try a PRS or a Tele

i actually just traded my '99 mim strat and $200 for a 2008 mim tele and i freakin love it, it is so much more comfortable than the strat was

Ouch, lol.

Uh, I'd say a semi-hollow or hollow body would be sweet, TS.
