i thought this would be an interesting thread. i know its all based on personal opinion but thought it would be nice to see everyone's take.

Les Pauls- my axe of choice. i like the feel of the body and the warmth it produces. if only the neck was a little smaller, id never consider owning a 2nd guitar. Perfect all around guitar, good for any music style.

Strats- i love the way the fretboard on a Strat feels, just not a big fan of the feel of the body and the fact it uses single coils. Strats to me are good mostly for blues/jazz music because of the fact it uses single coils. i personally think humbuckers are better for hard rock/metal.

if only i can get a Les Paul with a Strat fretboard feel!!

Hmm...well, I would say the Gibson ES-175 is pretty good for playing jazz...

[/obvious]

Well, my favorite axes are strat-types, only I can't get enough output out of 'em. I like a fat rhythm tone which is hard to achieve with a strat. I like Schecter C-1's as well: they're shaped like strats, but they have mahogany bodies and humbuckers for fatter, heavier tone, and a wider neck which I found surprisingly comfortable, especially for tapping.

A Fender fat strat is pretty good if u get HSS set up. really versatile
Or a Stagemaster deluxe HSH, Its has really fat tones and iv not found any style that cant be played brilliantly on it

im sorry, but i think its funny that you own a tom delonge signature strat. i dont mind him as a guitarist but his strat is waaaaay too barebones. only one pickup and one knob, just for volume. no tone knob.

I have, actually. I tried a Mexican HH...feels nice, but the sound isn't very professional. I couldn't find an American HH strat, but I heard it's not very good.

So Superstrats FTW!

The necks on Fenders are so much better than most other necks that are laminated and painted or whatever. The necks on Gibsons and guitars like that aren't nearly as comfortable as Fenders

and punk, psychobilly, rock and occasionally metal (john 5)

i have an sg... which the only problem for me is that at first it was hard to play standing up (i got used to it but frets 19 through twenty two are hard to solo on)... other wise my neck pick up is good from mellow to stuff to sraight up metal... and i can almost get a tele sound out of the bridge ( i adjusted the pole magnets on the treble strings)

i want a strat for my bluesier and songs that deal with more strange chording... and i love the deep cutaway... and i love the clean sound

Warmoth - Mahogany shaped body, maple neck, whatever you like in terms of fretboard (I prefer maple..)

Get a Seymour Duncan Lil 59 in the neck (humbucker character, single coil feel) and a humbucker in the bridge.. Amazing.. feels like a strat, sounds not entirely unlike a les paul.

Les Paul = Anything and everything

Having said that, I played an SG Std recently, and I'd say it would be pushing the LP for that title. Surprisingly impressive sustain and tone, nice action, nice shaped neck, and the best darn upper fret access around. And it looks the dog's bollox!!!

yeah there not for everyone, but its perfect for me. try a MIM strat with a different pickup. i agree, there stock pickups are terrible in the MIM fat strats. And to untitled039, i couldn't agree more. fender necks are wonderful. the only thing i dont like about my epiphone is the neck.
