... it's really not, in my opinion. Just for fun, let's pause the old "a xx guitar can do any genre"-argument (because it's true) for a moment and think in terms of genre specific instruments. For jazz/blues I'd go 335. For blues/rock I'd go with a Strat. For country/rock a Tele. Very safe and hyper conventional, but that's ok. But what about rock? Just rock; Springsteen, Ramones, AC/DC, GnR, Stones, Cream, whatever classic bands that comes to mind. What's the logical choice? HSS strat? Les Paul? SG? LP jr?
