im looking for a guitar with a sound thats sort of like a fender jazz master or a rickenbacker, but still has the sustain and is as nice to play as a gibson les paul basically, and with the sustain of one too

ive had enough with the shitty hardware of the guitar ive currently got and i desperately need a new one :@

any help would be veeeeery appreciated, thanks guise (Y)
id say get a LP and wire it up with jazz master p-ups, or either one with a brighter tone because of the mass of the LP. hell, its worth a try
I dunno about anyone else here, but I'd find it hard to get great sustain and something that sounds bright at the same time.

I second the fix a Les Paul with brighter pups idea.
