Ok sorry about like the 30th what guitar would fit me thread today.

I'm looking into geting a new guitar, I've been looking at agile's, fender's, epiphones, and ibanez. I still love the twang of my strat, and I wouldn't mind being able to have that in a new guitar but I would prefer to reach into some better darker tones as well. I play blues, jazz, classic rock, alt rock, and I do touch into metal if I'm in the mood. The max I can spend would be under $600 usd. I have a Vox Ad30vt, I got it because it fit what I wanted, great sound, easy on my wallet, (part) tube, and perfect for bedroom volumes.

Sorry to say but I'm not a big fan of SG's I prefer the Lp and the ES look from gibsons/epiphones

Why don't you spend $20.00 on a pickguard with a humbucker slot and another $70.00 on a Seymour duncan JB if it will fit in the bridge slot? I modified mine and couldn't be hapier.
My Gear:

Fender Strat w/Duncans
Hand Built(by me) guitar w/Duncans
Ibanez RG321MH
Bugera V22
Peavey Vyper 30 Watt

Digitech Hardwire Chromatic Tuner
Fender T-Bucket Acoustic
Digitech Bad Monkey

If my friend really does quit playing guitar I'll be geting a set of single coil EMG's. But if he doesn't come through I was planing on upgrading the pups to Hss and one of the singles being overwound

ah, i just thought it fit your qualities, classic rock and blues are great on it (clapton used an sg in the days of cream), jazz i'm not entirley sure what you mean, if it's bluesy jazz then once again it will do that fine, but if your looking for a les paul this is pretty nice

les paul custom is a fantastic guitar. Highly reccomend it for what you need. After a while you might want to switch out the pups but other than that it's great.

sorry for bumping this old thread but I'll be geting a puppy instead of a guitar. I fell in love with australian shepherd's.
