To me, it's more about the performance than it is about the tools. I mean, especially in a studio situation, they (the producer or folks hiring you) usually care WAY MORE about you being able to deliver the goods than what kind of gear you use to do it. There's a very, very high premium on getting the job done right, and getting it done right now.

That said, many engineers and producers are more comfortable when they see gear they're used to - so Strat, Tele, Les Paul, ES-335, Gretch, an acoustic - any and all would make them feel comfortable, as would many close substitutes, like say, a G&L for a Strat or Tele.

In a live situation, ya just gotta go with what you like. I like (GRIN)
Les Paul
ES-335
Tele
Strat
some P-90 axe (for me, a LP Junior or Special)

I manage to cover tele and strat sounds with a Tyler Classic using the volume so I would say

- A HSS Strat type (that can get the tele kind of sound from the bridge)
- an ES 335 type (best so far has been a Colling I-35)
- a Les Paul type with P90s

for n° 4
- if you only play electric the a Les Paul type with buckers
- if you need acoustic a good dreadnought or OM (wood and model are down to taste)

With those 4 you can cover any ground

Kudos to Andre357... if I can be more specific...

tele: ash with maple neck
tele: ash with maple neck with neck humbucker
tele: alder with maple neck and rosewood fingerboard
esquire

This is the correct answer.

everyone has a number 1, other than that, you need a backup incase a string breaks on stage. other than that, all else is gravy.
