If I could get any of these guitars (which I plan on buying a new one) then which one should I get? (I play mostly indie rock and some punk/hard rock stuff)
#2
im actually looking to get a schecter omen 6 sometime soon. les pauls are always nice imo.
#3
I voted Gibson SG, Just because I like them and there a good all around guitar, Long scale, Easy Accesses to every single fret, Light, Thin easy to play,

but really In the end its YOUR choice,

Be a man and tell her off. If that doesn't work, a roundhouse kick to the face will.

If it's punk and harder stuff, definitely not either of the Fenders. The single coils on them will definitely leave you wanting, and the wood they're made of will not produce the tone you're likely looking for.

Neither of the Epiphones if you can get their Gibson counterparts.

That leaves the Les Paul and the SG. Im going to vote for the SG for the simple fact that the LP is very heavy--if you're a younger or smaller person, then it'll definitely be more of a burden than a bonus. The SG is far lighter and you can get pretty much identical tones out of it, plus it's just more versatile in my opinion. However, the LP is mahogany and if you really really want that meaty tone that only mahogany will provide, then go for the LP. But my vote is definitely the SG.

Man, what is the obsession with SG's on this board? I'm gonna get flamed for this, but I've never liked Gibson's they just feel wrong but especially the SG's, can't stand them.
Depends on how what sound your after, the gibsons are going to be thicker/warmer and the fenders will be brighter.

Well man, I would say it (it being what kind of guitar you should get) depends on roughly 5 things;

? What kind of music do you play;
-Different Guitars Act better for different Music; like Fender Telecasters; you look at Country & there is NO OTHER GUITAR to those guys...]

? What's your ability level & How long have you been playing;
-Now a true Gibson Les Paul is gonna run you between $1,500 & $5,000...if you're just starting out & this is gonna be like your 1st or second guitar, I wouldn't recommend Dumping that kind of $$ on an Axe...

? What kind of amp are you gonna be using?
- I Reccommend the Behringer V-Ampire LX1200H (I Have one it's Great) & a Marshall for essentially any type of Music, if you wanna do Blues or Country - hunt down an old Marshall Plexi head, Soft Rock - go for like the MG100HDFX Combo, Metal - I Suggest the JCM800 (essentially only because you can get it in Red Tolex & thats wiked rad)

? Who are your big influences?
-If you've got influences like Zack Wylde go get a Les Paul
-If you've got influences like Carlos Santana pick up an SG (People who've seen the video of Santana playing Soul Sacrafice Live a Woodstock know what I'm talkin about...Id much rather have that '68 SG with two Gibson P-90's then a Paul Reed Smith ANY DAY)
-If you're influenced by someone like Jimmy Page then get either a Les Paul or a Telecaster...
-if you're influenced by like Randy Rhoads then get either a Jackson or a Gibson or an Epiphone Flying-V (I Personally own on of the Jackson Pro RR3 Randy Rhoads Flying-V's...& IT IS AWESOME!!!!)

I would say out of the best all-around instrument of the ones you listed; Fender Stratocaster...& If you look at the ammount of guitars by other manufacturers that are Based on the Fender Stratocaster Vurses the Telecaster, the Les Paul, the SG, the Flying V, the Explorer, etc...there is no other Guitar (Electric anyways) that has more copies or Guitars generally Based on it, then the Fender Stratocaster...

but I Personally Suggest that you get one with a Floyd Rose Double-Lock Tremelo
R.I.P.:
Randy Rhoads (December 6, 1956 – March 19, 1982)
Dimebag Darrell (August 20, 1966 – December 8, 2004)
Les Paul (June 9, 1915 – August 13, 2009)
Ronnie James Dio (July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010)

Make up your own mind, I guess. Just go to a guitar store, slam your money on the counter and say "I want some guitars!!!! * drool *" Erm.... yes...
