Screw it, OP was too long and pointless.

I need a new guitar. I have a Strat (Squier Affinity) and a Blackheart Little Giant.

Right now I play alternative/punk-pop kinda stuff due to lack of skill/enjoying that style of music. I'm a big blues/classic rock/country fan too, and as my skills progress I want something that will keep up with me.

I'm keeping the Strat for customizing/first electric purposes.

I'm stuck between getting another single coil guitar (Tele) or a 'bucker guitar (LP/Firebird)

I love the sound of distorted single coils (don't really know why, but I just do), yet at the same time feel I really should have a guitar with 'buckers for versatility purposes. I mean, I think even SRV had a Fat Strat in his collection (THINK, I don't remember for sure. It's been a while since I've seen the list.) (EDIT: Never mind, forgot that it was EMG active single coils. My bad.)

Opinion?

'buckers.


if you really want, you can put coil taps on it later so you can get that sweet single coil sound.

Alrighty then, buckers it is. The only caveat is that I'll have to probably help pay for this. I have no job and it doesn't look like that's gonna change any time soon, so I'll have to really scrape around for cash.
