So this is two parts...

I'm looking for a good rhythm guitar so start on. Right now I own an LTD F-50 which is ok but I would like something with more power, or maybe it's just too dull. Any suggestions would be great.

Also I've tried a lot of strings but can't seem to find any that really suit the F-50 (tried light tops heavy bottoms, custom gauge, misfits sig strings and the dunlop Zakk Wylde strings) If anyone can tell me what they felt comfy with on a similar or same guitar (maybe even more specifically for rhythm) that would be awesome!

its ok,

its a very easy mistake,

it sounds great when your alone but in a band situation you tend to find your invisible in the mix

playing with your EQs is a very important part of finding your tone and getting to know your gear.

Any kind of guitar that plays rhythm music better than lead?

Yeah, never scoop your mids unless you want to sound small and weak. If that doesn't work, then get some really nice passive pickups, or take the easy way out and get actives.

There are. It's not like it's physically imposisble to play one on the other, but some guitars are[/]i more suited to certain styles of playing than others. A basswood bodied, bolt-on maple and ebony guitar wouldn't be too hot for rhythm but it would be good for fast lead playing. An indian rosewood-bodied guitar with a set mahogany neck wouldn't be so great for lead playing but it would be incredible for rhythm.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
