I am going to get my stepsister's old MIM Strat (which was used for a week, then stood on a guitar stand). After a couple years, I want to buy a guitar with Humbuckers, except not as expensive as a Gibson, and not as heavy as a Gibson. Would a Jackson Dinky be good for things like Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Hendrix, Clapton, and Black Sabbath? I am just asking this to plan ahead for the future.

Have you played before? Strats are good guitars for all those you mentioned except maybe Black Sabbath but with pedals/messing with eq you could probably get a good tone.

My teacher was playing some jazz on my dinky when I got it... so I'll say yes.

Yeah, I have a Jay Turser POS stratocopy. And I have a distortion pedal. I actually found a good Sabbath tone out of it.

Of course, it'd sound fine, but there are much better guitars for the job...why a Dinky exactly? Try Hagstrom if you want Gibson quality (though that doesn't mean much these days...) without rip-off Gibson prices. Also try Italia if they're available over there, and maybe Fernandes.

Oh, thanks for the advice. My local guitar store has a bunch of Hagstroms. Now where are Hagstroms built?

Vintage ones over in Sweden. The current reissues in China, but they're excellent quality for Chinese-made guitars. Worth looking at, definitely.
Do YOU know who Les Paul is?

id say go epiphone. unless you really want versatility. then maybe a higher end strat or something. epiphone is going to give the most "gibson" quality. theres actually a tony iommi sg they make. check it.

Something like an Ibanez A/ARX series guitar would do you nicely I think, they're pretty much based on SGs an Les Pauls.

Shawn Lane used a Charvel dinky type model with dimarzios. Just get something with Duncans in it...but if you want a lot less distortion and such, you might want to go for a different guitar with coils.
