A guitar with a midi pickup.

It's a guitar, now it's a piano, now it's a saxophone, now it's a drum kit...

My first pick would be an HSS strat, but I would also consider a semi-hollowbody guitar because they are suprisingly extremely versatile.

Ibanez AT-300 Model with an EDGE bridge? maby na RG Prestige of some sort? I can get Metal and pretty glassy clean tones out of mine.

are you just asking a general question, or are you looking for something to buy?
#9
a Les Paul wired with coil taps and series/parallel push pull knobs, a strat with a stacked humbucker in the bridge and a floyd rose, maybe a JEM with Breeds, coil taps and a series parallel switch.

Actually, I think a PRS 513 (or 514, whatever it is) or even a Custom 24 could do ANYTHING guitar related.

I'd say a fender strat but since you want a Locking trem...

I'd say an Ibanez with coil taps, actually...

My guitar.

It is HSH, coil tap switch, on/off (it's very versitile, being able to turn it on AND off..), phase switch, 1 vol 2 tones. For selecting pickups you can have any combination you want thanks to the middle pickup on/off switch and the 3-way switch.

It can do anything pretty much and frankly I'm bored of it. I've realised that it's all a big gimmick and the only sound I REALLY use for what I play (just rock and roll really) is High humbucker and that's it. Which is why for my next guitar I'm building it with 1 Hum and coil tap (cos that's the only other great thing).

Single coils cant produce fat heavy metal sound!
Humbuckers cant produce crispy clean sound!
Fender tremoloes is no-go!

you should get a Schecter C1 Hellraiser FR
two EMG active humbuckers
bridge EMG can split to singlecoil
comes equipped with double locking original FloydRose

....and everyone who says that EMG's cant do cleans are lying! EMG's sounds fantastic in clean mode! They have a nice warm sound to them with clear highend

They can't......

Just coil tap a HSH guitar, and have push pull pots for phase switching, and a versatile body wood. It'd be good to have a system for fender trems that just put a chunk of solid material around the whole bridge block with full contact to the body. Give you a little more sustain and it could be removed/installed.


OR

just buy a few guitars instead and have the best of each. Because no matter how versatile something is, it is VERY rarely better than purpose built.

Oh the irony, Herman Li's guitar being voted as the most versitile guitar ever.


well forget the fact that it's his signature guitar and look at the specs of the guitar itself. looks pretty versatile to me.

Mostly any PRS. They don't have locking trems but well, I don't consider them a need, and soundwise they can do absolutely everything, from old school clean country to high gain death metal and shredding.

Gotta be the Variax or VG type guitars. Double necks are probably your next closest bet. Depends on how your defining versatility. A guitar that can be a banjo, sitar, 12 string acoustic and electric while having the tones of several other guitars is pretty versatile.

Well, my RG plugged into the effects on my Korg Triton (synthesizer) sounds like them all. the 88 black and white buttons on it don't hurt for the purpose.

I don't know if Line 6 do the Variax with a FR.


agree !
#37
possibly ibz js1200. its got the option for both humbuckers at the same time because there is no singlecoil in the middle. it has coil split which means that it still gets singlecoil sounds as well. the pickups are very versitile because they arent uber high gain or vintage styled and weak.

also it has a floyd type trem but if you dont like that you can just block it.

but seriously look at Gibson Explorers and Flying Vs


also look at the Steve Vai JEM.

1. You've never played active pickups clean
2. You tried them clean through a crap amp
3. You don't know how to EQ

Which of those 3 is it?

Anyway, put a midi pickup and a sustainer in a PRS Custom and you have your most versitile guitar.
