cant you buy carbon guitars? they weigh a ton, but you can throw them around without barely dinting them. However, electronics might not be that good.

Hmm, I think fat strats are fairly versatile, with a humbucher for the rock/metal stuff, and a couple of single coils for jazzy, bluesy stuff. Either that or one of those HSH Ibanez things.

What's more versatile

a Strat or a fat Strat?

fat strat - they have a humbucker as well as two single coils, strats just have three single coils.

A Schecter with a coil-tap is the most versatile, of course.

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music

For true versatility, that new line6 variax...although I've heard it has a very digital sound.

uhhh no, coil tapping splits the humbuckers to get a SC sound.

if you split the humbucker in the bridge position of a strat does it sound like a traditional single coil strat in that position?

I dunno, i just know that it splits the coils to give you a SC sound, i guess for a better clean.

The most versatile guitar ever is the fat power nashville Telecaster. Unfortunately, Fender doesn't make them; they only make power nashville Telecasters, so you need to add a humbucker. HSSP (P= piezo) is the most versatile setup.
