Burswood Acoustic
Squier Affinity Strat
Fender Tele Deluxe
Ibanez Jetking bass
Marshall MG30DFX
Peavey max 158 bass amp
Fender Bassman 250
1979 Carvin of some sort
And some pedals
You don't. You can get away perfectly well with knowing one scale as long as you know it well.

The major scale, when you understand it, is EVERYTHING you need.

“A man who mistakes secrets for knowledge is like a man who, seeking light, hugs a candle so closely that he smothers it and burns his hand.”

Most guitarists will stick to the major, minor and penatonic scales while soloing. Note that you may be confusing different scales with the same scale at different positions on the guitar.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
Who told you that? Most AC/DC songs are in Am. Most Guns n' Roses songs are in Em. If you learn one scale, you can transcribe a song to that or move up the scale pattern.
