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.

My ultimate dream guitar would be Jimmy Page's Les Paul and Double-necked SG. I really can't make up my mind which would I want more.

I'm a huge Led Zep fan, and the LP would be the ideal to get the perfect sound for most Led Zep songs since a major part of them are played with a LP, but I'm also a SG lover (hence why I own an SG) and having a double-neck and a 12-string SG all in one is just mind-blowing. =/

I've had a few ideas floating around, but the first that comes to me is this:

Company: ESP
Body Wood: Mahogany
Neck Wood: Mahogany
Fretboard Wood: Rosewood, 24-3/4 inch scale, 22 frets
Finish: Spalted Maple Top, natural nitrocellulose finish
Bridge: EMG 60
Neck: EMG 60
Inlay: check-marks at the 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 15, 17, 19, and 21 frets
Tuners: Grover tuners
Nut: Earvana Compensated Nut
Bridge: Gotoh Wrap-around
Hardware: Chrome
Controls: 2 volume, 2 tone, 3-way switch
Factory Strings: Dean Markley Blue Steel 11-56 (replace the bottom 52 with a 56 )

Actually, a majority of Led Zepp I was recorded on a Telecaster with a Super Champ IIRC, that is.

Indeed it was, but that was simply one album out of many. =P
LP was the most used guitar, obviously not the only one. =)
Also have to say that I love that sound he'd get from the guitar he would use for Kashmir for example. But the two I meantioned would be the real mind-blowers for me. *.*

Not near as epic, but I knew a kid in high school whose parents bought him a Slash Les Paul because he asked them to

A lot of these kids around Charlotte come from serious money

Seriously? How's he doing? Never knew he got perma'd, shame that. And glad to see the Bassman got a good home; love the sound of those things, I'd hate to see it go to waste.

Yeah. He's good. He's working as a chauffeur now, which leaves him a lot of time to practice and stuff. Uhm, yeah, he said he got perma'd for telling some guy off. And it's a nice amp, but I don't know if playing grunge is necessarily keeping it from going to waste sounds great though.

I'll let him know you guys are still around.
