hi guys.
i am currently just browsing some guitars lately to begin shopping for one soon and i just wanted to know which of these guitars is more versatile. I know that the SV has two humbuckers and one single coil? and the SA has 2 single coils and one humbucker? i was just looking for which one has more tone that will go anyway towards blues, jazz, rock, hard rock, metal and some country. Mostly just a good solid piercing lead tone from the single coil(s) and a warm rhythem with the humbucker(s). If i do buy an SA i plan to replace the humbucker with a "warmer" one to get more tone out of it because ive heard it isn't the best for harder rock and metal. Is a seymour duncan pearly gates alright for this?
I would just like to know thanks.

They make guitars in those lines with more pickup configurations than one. My SA has two humbuckers.

The SV is definitely better because all of the SV models are prestige.

that is true but i see that they are valued a lot higher. like 1000 bucks higher. is it worth it or with the SA stand to my standards? i would probably call myself advanced and looking for a good guitar. ive heard lots from the SA because of its low value for its high end quality and tone.

The SAs are great for the money, especially the SAS36FM, but if you have the money, the SV is definitely worth it.

^^ srry i meant the SA260FM.. how do you like your SA?

I love everything about it, except the bridge. I hate floating trems to hell, but it was a good trade

Also, if you're worried about the pickup configuration, you can wire each pickup to a toggle switch, so you can get both humbuckers on without the single coil. Or even all of them.

6 to one, half a dozen to the other, i'd say. jazz would generally prefer a neck humbucker, but aside from jazz, you could make a decent argument for either setup for the other genres...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
