I've been thinking of getting my second electric guitar because I really need it (I use to work with Scordaturas, but not always. But then I need, as minimum, 2 guitars tuned in 2 different ways). So, I've analized and I decided to try to get an Epiphone Dot or an Epiphone Sheraton II, and/or this kind of Eastwood Stormbird. My current electric is a Squier Strat, very cheap althoght it has been pretty usefull.

The thing is, I've been playing electric during about 1 and a half year. Am I ready for a second guitar?. I use to play basically Alternative Rock/Indie Rock (The Vines, Nirvana, Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Weezer, Manic Street Preachers, BRMC, Box Car Racer, Jet, The Redwalls, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, The White Stripes, The Subways, Sonic Youth, etc) and a little of Vintage/Old stuff (mainly Black Sabbath, Metallica, Neil Young, Cream, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Deep Purple, etc).

Tell me if those guitar would work for my "style".

What amp are you using?

I'm using this little Laney LX12. Not very "monstrous" since it's the one I've been using since I started.
I'm gonna suggest NOT a hollowbody... they aren't good with gain.

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.

Don't you feel offended, but can I know why they aren't?

For the music you're playing you'll be fine though, Worse comes to worse, get a noise suppressor.

Both the epiphones are good players, never played the 3rd guitar. Check them out at your local store, also check out some Ibanez Artcores.
