In reality, get a 335. With the right combo of pickups you can cover all that ground and not look silly doing it

To be frank, I'd never use one guitar for all those styles.

LP for rock... maybe jazz/fusion.

Strat for blues, jazz/fusion.

335 style guitar for any kind of jazz, really.

And some pointy Ibanez thing for all your shreddy, metal needs.

btw, the musiczoo links don't work.

You can do all of that on any of those guitars. Just go play them and buy the one that feels and sounds best.

The Fender with the humbucker should be able to cover all of those styles.

If you can do without the big "G" and "F" brand (typical TGP's choice due to demographics, and shred/metal/neo-classical is definitely not their thing!)......the EBMM and Ibanez are very versatile guitars which will suit all the types of music you're playing, including jazz.

i have been doing a ton of research tonight and I am going to order an EBMM Silhouette Special HSS in Tangerine Pearl... Beautiful.

I have a Gibson LP Traditional Pro and a Strat American Dlx. I love both, but I always reach for the LP first. Love that guitar. It covers all your rock and blues tones so well.

I voted for the Les Paul because it can cover all of the styles you play. IMHO the you can get some reasonably good Jazz sounds from a Les Paul, but not so much with the others.

You do realize including a Les Paul in any poll at TGP means the Les Paul wins, no matter what?

"I play Beatles and Byrds covers and need jangly 12-string tones" = "Use a Les Paul"
"I play reggae" = "Use a Les Paul"
"I play death metal and need a 8-string tuned down to A" = "Use a Les Paul"

etc.

Yikes, that's quite a spectrum of choices, but I recommend the 7V just to be different and b/c they're great guitars IMO. You'd be doing yourself a disservice to buy a Jem from anyone but Rich at Ibanez Rules! however.

im another gibson voter

pick a guitar that you are comfortable playing standing up - if indeed playing standing up is something you asipre to.
