  • Most Versatile Electric Guitar?

    If you could own only one guitar, and you wanted to play like Larry Carlton sometimes, Mark Knopfler sometimes, and Brad Paisley sometimes, which ONE guitar can give you the greatest range of sounds?

          Yep.


          1986 Kramer Pacer Deluxe. Incredibly versatile guitar.

                Vox Virage. The 390 pickups provide a a lot of tonal variety.

                  People always seem to say a Strat, or HSS Strat. Yes they're definitely and obviously versatile, but in my opinion so is any guitar when you know how to tweak it and the amp settings.

                    A strat is more versatile than other guitars meaning that it can do more genres better. A LP is pretty limited even if you know how to tweak the amp settings etc IME.

                      Yeah, that makes sense, I can understand both sides to that argument. I just see Teles being more versatile, but I can't really find fault in anyone's argument for other guitars.

                        What about a H S H guitar with coil splitter?

                        I've got an aria pro 2 with coil splitting and it sounds a good as my mates strat - thought my aria only H & H, no middle single coil.

                        I'll build a project one day, and it'll be a HSH type guitar. I'll just have to find good humbucker that really good too when split.

                            Lets see: Larry Carlton used to play a strat, Mark Knopfler has a signature strat and Brad Paisley plays a tele which can be well imitated by a strat. I think that narrows your choice down.

                              I have way too many guitars. Tele, Strat, LP, P90 guitars, etc.

                              The most versatile guitar I have is my Yamaha SA2200 Semi Hollow. It's dual humbucker with coil spits. It can do everything but metal and it does them all very well. With the bridge pup split and the volume and tone dimed, it sounded so close to a Tele that I sold my Tele.
