Hey I'm looking for a new guitar for upto £400. I will want it to be suitable for a nice clean tone, a nice blues tone, a nice crunchy tone and a good metal tone. Therefore I will want atleast 1 humbucker, I wouldn't mind not having single coils but these may be better for getting a clean and blues tone.

So far I've looked at a Fender Standard Series Fat Strat http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=1012

Epiphone Les Paul Custom (or if you think there is a better model of Epi Les Paul please suggest)
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=863

PSE SE Egh (with trem)
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=67002

The last thing I have looked at is the Ibanez RG1570. I know this guitar is great for metal shred etc. but I wouldn't want to get it if it won't be very good at the other tones I want.

Note that I can ONLY get guitars from www.GAK.co.uk, this means that I cannot get guitars from ebay or any other online shop.

Fat strat, cos thats the most versatile guitar out of those 3. If not, the PRS 513 might be worth checking out.
Well, just to be like everyone else, here's my rig:

Fender American Stratocaster
Epiphone Les Paul Custom
Washburn J28SDL

Mesa/Boogie F-50 Combo

Hey, I looked up the PRS 513, and the only ones I found for it cost over £3000 If there's a different model that is MUCH cheaper than the ones I found, could you please post a link.

May I ask, why wouldn't the PRS SE EGH be as versatile as the Fender Fat strat?
They both have the same pickup configuration, seem to be similar size etc. so why the Fat Strat over the PRS?

How would the RG1570 do at getting say, a Hendrix tone? Or a Cream tone? What about a Pink Floyd tone? And would it also be good for classic rock i.e. Ac/dc, Zeppelin.

^ I can get any tone i want out of both my Ibanez's, its all about your amp dude.

I would reccommend saving up a little more, a maverick F-1 or F-3 arre both good.

SOrry, the 513 was a bad joke *blushes*

About the fender VS PRS, i'd try them out myself to see which one you like better. I've never tried the PRS, so i have to idea as to its capabilities. I didn't know it had a HSS config as well.

Epi lp customs go for around £200 on ebay. I'd suggest buyng one. They're decent guitars (mahogany = tone), and you can spend the other £150-£200 upgrading the guitar to gibson specs. Taht's what I'm planning to do. They just have a really fat sound that none of the other guitars mentioned can match.

Good luck
