.. if you wanted a new guitar for metal/80s, etc and wanted decent versatility?

Your price range is UP TO $2500ish.

I am leaning towards:

What are your thoughts and what would you want?
Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus w/ '60s neck
Ibanez JEM 7V
Jackson SL2H Soloist
PRS Singlecut SE
Marshall JVM410h
Marshall 1960a 4x12
Line 6 Pod x3 Live

Nope, not in a million years. Never liked the soloist, I would rather get a ESP viper

Probably an Ibanez RG. I love their necks, and HSH is the most versatile pickup selection in my opinion.
Breaking stereotypes by playing indie on a metal guitar.

Current Gear
- Epiphone Les Paul Standard (Plus Top)
- Crappy Strat Copy (Redecorated, looks snazzy)
- Ibanez Acoustic/Electric Guitar
- Ibanez RG1570 Mirage Blue
- Peavey Vypyr 30 Watt

Maybe an Ibanez J-Custom, but I've never played one. And I already have a perfect metal/80s guitar that I believe to be better (Caparison TAT).

If your gonna spend $2500 get a custom guitar, or the EVH Wolfgang or a PRS

You can't tune a LP copies down. Some kind of lawsuit Gibson won. Sorry.

Like said before check out the Ibanez RG range of guitars or look at Charvel guitars imo they just scream 80's. But really for $2500 you pretty much have a wide range of guitars at your choice so go try each one out and see what you like from each guitar and try to find one that has most if not all of those features you want.

You guys aren't going to like this, but a Les Paul or an Explorer.

Why not? Gibson's are pretty versatile... Not a bad suggestion but probably not the best option for TS. Personally I'd go with an ESP Eclipse or an Explorer.

If he likes Randy rhoads which falls under 80's metal then a Gibson Les Paul is a good sugestion
