Right, I have played loads of guitars and owned loads, but just cant find the right guitar for me...

I want that stadium pop sound at a cheap price!

I am swaying toward the Gibson SG Standard sound...anyone know any good copies of this? I had an Epiphone G400 Korina which was pretty good but im after something a lil bit more 'edgy'

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

I think the genre you're looking for is power pop.
People writing songs that voices never shared
No one dared
Disturb the Sound of Silence

^And with that in mind, Just use pretty much Any epiphone or Squier. Colour used to matter, but since Avril Lavigne, anything goes, really.
(And aside the point, but who the **** are the Jonas brothers?)
EDIT: For specifics, strats usually work a treat, but SG's, Les Pauls, Telecasters - basically anything that's pretty mainstream)
The rig:
Gibson SG faded special -> Marshall MG 50/100 (working on a valve amp)
Backup: Vintage AV1
Newcastle United

Dude, it doesn't really matter what you get for a guitar in this case, I think. Tele's, LP's, SG's, Strat's.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40
Adam S3A monitors

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

or the squier avril lavigne telecaster

Anything used by a band like Green Day. The Epi '57 LP Jr. (or any LP Jr.) would do you good.

well i have the 57 Jr. Sunburst. It has a p-100 so basicly a humbucker with the p90 twang. Great for pop punk.

As a totally unbiased viewpoint into how their music sounds (Yeah Right... ), I have one onomatopoeia to describe what they sound like; Ugh. Simplistic with a horrid voice that sounds like he's trying to hard.

Anyhow, if you want something for Stadium Pop, go with something mainstream, maybe a HSS strat and a solid state amp (Not one with effects) with a fuzz pedal. That may be something similar to what you're looking for.
