Hello Electric Guitar forums. I'm usually not in here, but this is where this thread belongs. So, basically, I'm having trouble finding a guitar that I love. There are many guitars that I like but I haven't found one that I absolutely love. I've owned an Epi Les Paul and I own a Gibson SG and a custom built telecaster. I've played some Fender strats, not too many Fender teles. I like them all.

I'm just having trouble finding my perfect guitar. I'm partially talking about tone, but I'm also talking about aesthetics. Are there any guitars that you could recommend for me? I know that this, in the end, is entirely a personal preference, but I'd like to hear some suggestions. I play rock, alternative, etc. in case that helps.

Thanks.

tld;dr....recommend me a guitar.

Maybe a little more specific in the tone you're trying to get
What pickup style? All single coil, humbucker, HSS....
Personally I like strat style the best

Go to Musician'sFriend.com. Sort electric guitars by brand and hit random brand names. You'd be surprised at just how well this works.

probably single coils. maybe HSS. i do like strats, but i don't know if i'm in love with them. i'm not terribly concerned about tone because, whether it be true or not, i feel like most of the tone is from the amp and the guitar (with the exception of the pickups) doesn't affect the tone too much. so i'm mostly thinking of aesthetics.

i dont really plan on getting a new guitar for a little while so i'll say budget is pretty open as long as it isn't crazy. i was thinking about PRS but damn they're expensive.

jaguar maybe? gibson es 335? hmm....
