What kind of music do you play?

Epiphone Les Paul perhaps? Well, you've also got Strat players in there, so how about a MIM Strat or Yamaha Pacifica? I'm just throwing ideas around.

Epi SG? Epi LP? MIM Strat w/upgrades or spare money for amp? 10 - 15 Ibanez's? it depends on taste.

Well, to get the most versatility, I would say a HSS MIM strat.

IMO your not gonna get a good hendrix tone out of a humbucker. Or a Pink Floyd tone either.

+1 IMO single coils are sometimes underated you can get a nice chunky feel out of a SSS Strat through an ok Tube amp

Yeah, I love that tone. That is why I suggested a HSS strat, so he can still get a nice metal/ fat tone out of the bridge humbucker.

I preffer the SSS than the HSS... wich SSS model you suggest? 50's?

i like david guilmour's red strat... can i find one of these in musicians friend?

I personally like the 70's style strat. (I also prefer the SSS style). Can't go wrong with a 50's style though. Yeah they should be on there

is a fender strat easier to play than an gibson flying v fadded?

Yeah, it's a little awkward to play a V while sitting. The neck feels better IMO too.
#17
I think that there is but I'm not sure
#18
do you know what kind of color is the red start of david guilmour?

its chrome red or fiesta red?
#19
What amp are you going to be playing this on by the way?
