You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

i wouldn't get the studio personally. my friend plays one and he says because they cut holes in them (to make them lighter) they sound like crap....

^I dunno, having played a chambered LP I think they sound better than their solid counterparts - and they're a ****ton lighter. My Epi weighs around 11 lbs, not exactly fun to use on stage.

Yea i dont think it would make that much of a difference soundwise. And my B.C. rich weighs a ton too... thats why i never stand lol.

I'd go with the studio. Most versatility by far, and the chambered body really takes a ton of weight off.

you'd be surprised. It's a lot more resonant, which makes the tone a bit warmer.

Not a guitar you would normally see in a punk band but I would say look at the ESP Horizon NT it seems like it would suit you better imo.
