The real question is, what do you play, and what do you play through? What do you want to sound like, and what will make you play more? I've currently got 2 strats (one sss one hh), a prs clone with alnico 2 hh, an LP with shreddy pickups, a Tele with noiseless single coils, a Tele/lp hybrid with vintage paf style humbucker, and I'm building an hh Tele with alnico 5 higher output paf style pickups. All of them do different things, but I gravitate toward hard rock and metal guitars, since for my daily playing I lean into the heavier stuff. If you don't want to shred, but want bluesy/classic rock vibes, that will change what guitar you're after. If you have a monster half stack with insane gain levels, single coils may not fit the bill. That said, you know the guitar theorem, right? The number of guitars one needs = X + 1 Where X = the number of guitars one has.
