Hey guys, I'm looking for a new guitarrr.. Right now I have a Schecter Hellraiser, with EMG's (81/85 set) . I don't play metal at all, so I'm looking for a really versatile guitar. Also, I'm not sure if I want to sell it yet, maybe if need be.. But I believe guitars should be collected.

Anyway, some I've been looking at.. My budget is around $1000.

An Epiphone Elitist LP, or a Gib LP Studio, which is better and why? They are around the same price only one is gib and other is epi.

Gibson SG Standard.

or a PRS, undecided on model.

Again, I'm looking for a very versatile guitar.. I play todays pop rock/punk, rock, hard rock, sometimes I'll get into some metalcore.. Not often though.. Just need something versatile.. Thanks!!

I'm a big fan of Gibson, but, I also LOVE the PRS. I would say it's just as versatile and you could probably get more for your money.

look at a jackson like the dk2. floyd rose, best neck ever, and really good pickups, but they can always be better

The ones you are looking at all look like good choices (except I would go with an Epi Elitist over a Gibby Studio, since the Studios tend to be a gamble as far as quality goes). I'd like to add the LTD EC-1000 Amber Sunburst (w/ Duncans) to the list of recommendations. It has such an excellent feel to it, and with the Duncans should make it quite versatile.

Sorry, Jackson screams "metal" to me, also, I have no use for a FR

PRS are great guitars. They aren't as diverse as a Les Paul though.
Stay away from the SG. great guitars, but not very diverse, and anyone who says they are is full of it. You can't play jazz with an SG.
Jackson, while usually hailed as a great metal guitar (which it is) can also pull off softer rock, jazz and blues.
Pay attention, first and foremost to the bridge and the pickups. Duncans, EMG and Rose. Eye on the prize, son.
