I'd say some sort of Les Paul.

Electric - you plug it into a power outlet in the wall and the music comes from little speakers in the guitar.

As much as I hate to say this I think it might very well be the Ibanez E-Gen, has anyone else actually looked at the switching options on that thing?

“A man who mistakes secrets for knowledge is like a man who, seeking light, hugs a candle so closely that he smothers it and burns his hand.”

I reckon there's a consensus that Strats, Les Pauls and, to a lesser extent, Teles can all do almost anything. They've all been used for everything from country through psychedelia to metal, so I'm inclined to agree.

I know this won't win, but its my own guitar and I love its versatility.

Fender Jaguar, soft single coil in neck for blues, twangy single coil in bridge for country/rockabilly, neck and bridge in series for heavier humbucking stuff.

Then bam! the rhythm circuit for bassy tones (not like a bass really but still cool if you get the settings right).

Nice big 1meg tone pots with that weird sonic switch to give me much more tonal versatility then say a strat or tele.

And a nice little tremolo at the back for added kicks.

I know Jags get a rough ride, but when set up right they are my favourite Fender. Took freaking ages to get my right and I'm scared everytime I pick it up incase I upset it, but that makes it all the more fun!

Jazzmasters and Jaguars are too cool for words, sexy little beasts, even my girlfriend likes them and she doesn't even get guitars!

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.
BC Riches are the most versatile guitars, because their shape lets you play metal and blues, like Yngwie Malmsteen.
I honestly think it would have to be a 7 string with two humbuckers with coil splitters, a single coil in the center position, a phase switch, a floyd rose, and about 10 knobs and switches for volume and tone.

not to mention you can customise models/tuning. it has 50 stock tones and 60 switching positions on the guitar (12 banks each with 5 patches per bank), but you can customise every one of these settings with that workbench software. It doesn't sound as good as the real thing, mind, it sounds kinda artificial, especially when you have worn out strings, but its still a very versatile guitar. I don't know if its more versatile than one of those guitars with midi pickups though.. EDIT: Like the Godin FacingUsAll posted.

also that les paul HD6Xpro or whatever it is could be pretty versatile, due to the fact it has an output for each string...
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
If it was a digital guitar it would be the Line 6 Variax. If it was a standard guitar HSS Strat.

Strat, PRS, Strat, Strat.

That being said, I'd say HSS Strat. I've always loved how it sounded, but I could never get used to the feel of strats, I just prefer LPs.

And for the love of all that is guitar, stop saying SG!
