Hello.

If you can own three electric guitar models and you'd own
- a Gibson Les Paul with Humbuckers
- a Fender Telecaster with Single Coils

What guitar model would be the third Guitar?

Which Model would be the logical third one, that would be different enough to both of these?

A PRS?
A Strat?
An SG with P90?

Would love to hear your opinion.

Best regards

Maybe something with P90s. K-Line does a real nice offset version:

Hard to imagine I would own a Les Paul with humbuckers to be honest.

but yeah.. a Duesenburg, Gretsch or a Reverend.

If I had the money to go buying new guitars those are the 3 brands I'm most attracted to.

This and then not need the other two.

IMO this is one of the most overlooked guitars around. I think people believe that when you plug this guitar in you sound like BB King but it comes stock with 490's and can be difficult to dial in a decent Blues tone. It's closer to Les Paul sound without dialing back knobs and using the Varitone switch.

I mainly use it for general to harder Rock (or basically anything most would use a Les Paul for). It has great upper fret access and with no F-Holes doesn't feedback. Then you start twisting knobs and it's gets into Fender territory.
