Currently I have a Epiphone Les Paul Studio which I intend to keep and a Line6 Spider IV15 ( I know its not that good of an amp but its just to practice in my bedroom)

I want a new guitar that would cost £600 or less. I play music of all sorts from Metallica,RHCP to the Beatles and The Clash or ACDC and stuff.

I have been currently looking at either a Gibson Special Faded SG and a Fender Telecaster Joe Strummer signature.

Can anyone suggest any guitars that are good? I do not want an Ibanez guitar!

Washburn WI-66 Pro. If you want a slightly edgier 'SG' sound, then the Washburn X50 Pro will do better.

ESP ltd's would be pretty good for the heavyer side of your music taste but they might not be so good with RHCP and Beatles.. maybe some fender with seymour duncans?

i'd recommend the Ibanez RG1570, i have one and its the most versatile guitar i've played. you can get all the single coil strat and tele tones as well as an awesome metal/shred sound. its also around £550 i think. mine was £555

Telecaster or Strat of some sort. You have a Les Paul style guitar that you say you aren't going to sell, so why buy another Les Paul style guitar other than liking how it looks?

MIA/MIM Telecaster, Used '52 reissue, '72 Deluxe, used ES335 (If you still want a Gibson).

I would've thought a fat strat would suit you perfectly. And at £600 you can look beyond the standard MIMs. You could look at a used American strat too.

i know you said no ibanez but i think its your best bet versatile enough for what you want to play, and may be considor pickup changes for that extra tone you might want, failing that maybe some kind of epiphone?

If you're looking at SG's, allow me to recommend an SG Classic. If you look on ebay, you can get one within that price-range (I just won an auction on one at 610$ US; much less than 600 pounds). It's basically based on the 60's SG special, and is more or less a clone of the Pete Townshend SG Sig. They come with P-90s and a pretty good feeling neck, especially after having an epi. les paul (Which, I love mine, but the SG is so much smoother and has MUUUUCH better upper-fret access). Plus, it fits your musical tastes. The Beatles were known to occasionally pop out an SG (Paper-back Writer comes to mind), and AC/DC IS an SG. RHCP plays more r less on fender single coils; a P-90 is a single coil with a lot more power, which means you can get a great clean tone but also handle the distortion of heavier things. Metallica... That's the one issue, if you stay stock. P-90's buzz quite a bit, so you'd need to replace one of the stock P-90s with a newer non-gibson variant that won't buzz. But, after that, you're golden.
