Hey UG!

I've recently sold my ESP guitar to get the money for a new, more versatile, guitar. I play a lot of blues inspired rock and a bit of metal. The sound I want is aggresive, and clear. I doesn't NEED to have a humbucker in the bridge or something like that. I've been looking at some Ibanez, but they doesn't seem right. I want this next giotar to last untill I die so it has to durable as hell. It MAY NOT have a floating bridge! It can have a tremolo, but NOT floating!

Please help. My budget is around 2800US not much more than that.


Thanks in advance guys!

I don't think you can get much more versatile then the Kramer Jersey Star, three humbuckers with a coil tap in each pickup so you can go from full on metal to SRV blues with the flick of a switch.

Les Pauls and Strats (especially the newer Strats with S-1 switching) are the most famously versatile "classic" guitars, and since they've both been used for every genre from country to metal, who's arguing? You could also try out some Variax guitars, because they have Strats, Teles, Les Pauls, SGs and all sorts of other crazy **** like sitars in one guitar, and if you get the software then you can program them to sound like anything.
Feel free to ignore my ranting.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

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.

The problem with custom biuld is that I can't try it out before bying.

I don't like Ibanez really... I tried S, SA, RG and some others and none suitted my needs.

^ yeah. but you can try out a load of guitars, see which you like best, combine the specs, etc., and then basically know almost what it's gonna feel like.

Up to you of course, if trying out is of paramount importance, then yeah, custom build is a big no-no.
