Ive got to get a new guitar! im sick of what ive got right now!
I mostly play classic rock. Stuff like Joe Walsh, Rush, GNR, Boston, and some modern stuff like Modest Mouse, Foo Fighters, and Audioslave, and even some southern rock like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet. I was looking at http://www.guitarcenter.com/shop/product/buy_fender_72_telecaster_deluxe_electric_guitar?full_sku=102548054
that and http://www.guitarcenter.com/shop/product/buy_ibanez_rg1570_electric_guitar?full_sku=519965%2e101
What i want is something versitile, something that can do it all. I would prefer for it to have atleast 1 humbuck and a maple neck if possible?
Thnx for help in advance
EDIT: Hopefully something under $750

either or, a strat would be great for southern rock and classic rock sounds, les paul would hit rush and GnR better.

Yeah, **** the ibanez. Wizard necks suck balls. Especially rosewood wizard necks

well the only LPs he could afford are Epis which arent bad but id rather get a fender than a epiphone to be honest, plus ash body + 2 humbuckers=LOVE

Maybe try one of the Fender HSS guitars (there are several variations)? They have a hmbucker in the bridge and single coils in the middle and neck positions.

Yeah, after i played that telecaster in guitar center i pretty much cried when i put it back, lol

idk the only les pauls from epi worth buying are plain tops and birdseye exclusives, and honestly i think the fender would have a better tone for his music

Word. These are very versatile guitars, while the Ibanez is pretty much metal through and through. Tele is nice too though, so I would suggest not buying online until you can get yourself to a music store and try out the guitars you like.

Yeah, hopefully sometime in this coming week i will take a trip to guitar center. I already tried the tele out and loved it. I'll have to try out some type of strat with a hss or something for pickups

Try looking into some copy brands like tokai. They make amazing copies of strats, les pauls and teles.
