If you're looking for true versatility, and I mean an axe that can handle the loudest heaviest norwegian death metal, the smoothest chicago jazz, the purest and dirtiest delta blues, and the most heartstopping flamenco/classical fingerstyle, check this rad axe out:

The best guitar ever made., ever.

In all seriousness, though, I've never used one, but I would guess that the Line 6 Variax would be pretty darn versatile... it probably doesn't sound that great, but it looks like it covers just about any any sound you could ever want... I would love to try one someday.

Carvins are the most versatile by far. Some of you Ibanez freaks need to play a DC400 or a DC127 and you would never go back. And they are one of the best built IMO.

I lived less than half an hour away from a Carvin warehouse in California... I can't believe I moved before getting a custom built! ohmy.gif unsure.gif

I have a problem with the question tongue.gif

If you buy a guitar for versatility you are more than likely going to get something that is "okay" at a bunch of different sounds but not stupendous at any given one. I suggest focusing on a sound you like and buying a guitar that is suited for that. Also, let's not overemphasize the "sounds" a guitar makes. The majority of your tone will come from your amp and effects (unless you play Jazz).

Dodging the Variax option, I'd have to say my Maton MS2000 is the most versatile guitar I've played so far. Dual humbuckers give you your main options, but coil-taps on both let you flick across to single-coil sound if you want to go that way.

Separate volume and tone controls for each pickup mean you can very closely control your sound too.

Of course, access to the higher frets isn't great and the coil-tap option is only on their top models so price becomes an issue. Plus they're a little tricky to find outside of Australia.

Guitars: Fender American Vintage 1957 Stratocaster, Fender American Highway One, Maton MS2000 Deluxe
Amps: Fender Hotrod Deluxe, Roland Cube 60, Fender Frontman 25R
Effects: Boss BD-2, OS-2, DD-20, TU-2

My opinion using a SH-6 Distortion and SH-2 Jazz Humbucker from Seymour Duncan in any quality made guitar with good wood and parts would be very versatile


--------------------
My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.
