Hi Guyz.

I need help in choosing the appropriate electric guitar in playing these genres:

Pop punk
power pop
emo
Alternative Rock

Paramore and Fall Out Boy plays these genres.

Which do you prefer most in playing those genres? Fender HSS or SSS?

I will appreciate having other brand recommendations.

Tnx.
#2
Get a guitar which is used by Paramore's or Fall Out Boys guitarists.

BTW hasn't FOB been elected the worst band of the year for like two times in a row?

None of those really scream for a particular type of guitar, though most of the guitars I see in those genres are Fender 72 deluxe tele's. You could really get away with either of those fender styles. The HSS might give you a little more versatility, but Fender's buckers aren't too nice. I'd get a SSS and replace the bridge pup with a hot rail or something. That's if you want a Fender. Go to your local store and play some guitars.

What's really more important is finding a guitar you like the feel of.

Let's see.

Pop Punk:
Example: blink-182
Tom DeLonge used a single pickup Fender Stratocaster with a Seymour Duncan Invader up until Take Off Your Pants And Jacket, then he used a Gibson ES-335 with a Gibson Dirty Fingers from there out, including in Angels & Airwaves

Emo:
Example: My Chemical Romance (They get the brand as emo, but I wouldn't call them so)
Ray Toro and Frank Iero are both known for using Epiphone guitars, mostly Les Pauls, although they've both been known to also use Gibsons, including SGs and Explorers. From what I know, the pickups are stock.

Alternative Rock:
Example: Angels & Airwaves

1. Don't every use the term power pop ever again
2. Don't ever use Paramore and Fallout Boy in the same sentence
3. SSS all the way, but if you really want the true Paramore sound use a 72' Telecaster Deluxe or a Les Paul.

I saw review in the latest Total Guitar magazine of a new FOB signature guitar by Washburn, they gave it a 4/5 star I think and it goes for about 400 $, I'm not a fan of FOB but I just happened to see the review.

Even though he used them in the same sentence thus null-n-voiding his statement completely

But yes, BOTH BANDS (cwatididthar) suck beyond compare and should never have gotten as popular as they did.

Good, not not the best value. Schecter PT, same shape, very nicely built. Pickups have more bite to them, and they also have coil-tapping. all of that for $549 as opposed to $939 for the 72 Tele. Chew on that for a bit

1. How's it feel to be a jackass?
2. As much as I agree, shut up. He's got taste, just because you don't agree doesn't mean you have the right to be a douche. Also, you sort of just did.
3. Seconded.

Guys, come on, quit ragging on his taste. I don't like emo or(depending on whether we're using the actual definition of British Invasion-influenced rockish music or UG's definition) Power-pop either, but come on, give him a break for not playing blues, metal, rock or alt.

Now then, personally, I need a budget before I recommend something.

Toro swears by the Duncan Phat Cat, so not stock. I don't know what Iero uses.

Both of those bands use humbuckers exclusively. Josh Farro uses an HH Tele and Joe Trohman has a Washburn signature with two humbuckers, so go to a guitar store and find something with two humbuckers that you can get the right sounds out of. You'd be fine with an Epiphone Les Paul and a good amp.

Honestly, if those are the choices and you're asking which for this music, you need to lurk around and learn your stuff before you run off and make a purchase.

#20
definitely not the SSS, you need at least a bridge humbucker for the kinda sound they have, really i think an SG, les paul, 72 tele, would work better, notice how they all have dual humbuckers

before that he played an SG I believe

This guitar seriously kicks major ass. I played one in the store the other day and if I didn't have too many guitars and not enough money, I would have bought it on the spot. Get this.

well you could get any tissue box put a pick up in it and use what's left of the toilet paper roll for the neck and string it with w/e and you could get that sound. no seriously there's not really anything required to play stuff like that it's just a bunch of people messing around. and when did gretsch go so low.....

Dude. You're an ass. People are entitled to their own taste in music, whether it's a box of power chords or sweeping on an eight-string. It's cool if you don't like them but keep comments like that to yourself, especially in a thread about the bands you're trashing.

I agree with Necrosis about music elitism. Just because it sucks does NOT mean we have the right to insult his taste in music!

Uh...Am I the only one here who thinks Paramore is actually a good band? I mean, vocals are GREAT and the guitar is really good for its genre. Although Decode kind of sucked, the Riot! album rocked in my opinion.


Jaguar is a great choice, if you replace the buckers in it. Or maybe an SG?
