HSS Fender Stratocaster.

Or, the Godin Progression. Good luck finding one though!

Ehhh...swap out the pickups (unless they are dimarzio) and I personally would say they are pretty damn versitile but for your styles of music I agree a used Stratocaster would suit your needs very very well. You could go the extra mile and get a HSS Stratocaster which could do everything.

If you're looking for Ibanez exclusively, this one might be good for you, a pickup swap will be needed though

An HSS Stratocaster is definitely what you're looking for with those styles of music, especially with RHCP.

If you really must spend that much, try an Ibanez 7 String with trem and triple pickup setup. For a bit less, try the RG5EX1 like I have, very versatile for the price of $400.00.


Maybe like this one

Strat's and les paul's are ideal for that style. But i'd look into some other companies that make copies of them, because if you're going to get it from fender or gibson you might find a nice guitar but the smaller companies are more honest imo!

Probably a PRS SE Custom 24 (maybe second hand for that money). There isnt much that bad boy cant do in my humble opinion
#14
Humbucker-Single coil-Single coil Strat, with Seymour Duncan SSL-1 in the neck position will get you the John Frusciante sound. The humbucker in the bridge will allow for heavier styles of rock or metal. That's a swiss army knife guitar.

i dunno how suitable that'd be for what he wants to play. most of the stuff he listed as the main kind of sounds he's going for were single coils.

HSS strat seems like a no-brainer for those styles of music. or maybe even a regular strat with one of those single-coil size mini humbuckers in the bridge...
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Fender Lonestar Stratocaster. I paid $550 for mine brand new. It's a MIM body and neck, but the pups blow standard HSS pups out of the water. I play a lot of cross between RHCP, Journey, Pink Floyd, John Mayer, Guns n' Roses, Metallica. It can definitely handle what you need.

You're going to have a hard time beating an HSS Strat in versatility, especially with the range you've described.

Remember, though, a guitar is only as versatile as the amp it's played through- what do you have now?

this. easily one of the more capable guitar set-ups around

also, the sort of versatility you're talking about requires going beyond the guitar. you're gonna have to make sure your amp/pedals can pump out the requisite tones. if you're amp isn't up to snuff, it won't matter what guitar you put through it.

pretty much any H-S-S guitar will be the most versatile setup. I've been gassing for a lone star for a while now. It has Texas special single coils, and (I believe) a pearly gates 'bucker. I want one BAD. It should be able to handle pretty much everything you listed very well, and it's only $550-600 new. If you can find one used for less, snatch it up.

This.

I have a RG7420, I have it wired up JPX style, with the CL/LF JP Signature pickups. IMO, its mainly the pickups that does the talking.

But in your case, I think a Epiphone Les Paul will do the job great.

Line 6 varied? However, if your a member of the "I'd rather eat my own cack then use line 6 " group, try a les pual or a modified strat'.

Fender Highway 1 Stratocaster. All the bands you listed play Strats, and the Highway 1 is (IMO) the best at that price point. It has slightly hotter pickups which are better for rock and the satin finish feels really good.
