    Any recomendations for an all around electric guitar for a home studio. Im lookin for lots of sounds and versatility. Hamer seems to be a good choice right now cause of the price and quality. Thanks for your suggestions.

    I think you can get a new G&L ASAT Classic for around $795. I can't decide if I want one of these next or a Godin Multiac. I haven't played the Godin yet, but the ASAT is very nice--and versatile.

    Although I don't think I'd ever use one - cos it's not a cool shape - I don't think you could go past a Strat with a humbucker in the bridge position. I think you could just about be able to create every popular guitar tone with one of these. If you go with a Mexican strat then you get a well-made guitar at pretty good price.

    I'm a Fender strat fan, but by far, the most versatile guitar in the world is the Tele. If you want to make it even better, throw some Hot Rails in the bridge and it will scream like a stuck pig. Don't be afraid to buy Mexican.(There sound and play great).

    I pretty much stick with my Gibson Blueshawk. It is very comfortable to play and the two Blues 90 pick-ups put out a great sound. The guitar has a dummy coil on the inside with a six position switch to mix with the two humbuckers..this allows for an incredible amount of versitility. It is a bit limited if you're looking for a huge crunchy sound, but all around the tone is great.

    Plus it is semi-hollow and I love f-holes!

    I'm sorry, did I type that out loud?

    Cool

    I would go for a good used guitar. If you can find a Jap. Squire Strat that would be good, or an 80's model Kramer. It shouldn't be to hard to find a good used guitar for under $350. Maybe you have something you could trade in on it too.

    It depends on where in the overall spectrum of guitar music you want to be.
    If you start at the jazzy end of the line and want to go to the bluesy/rocky center, then a Gibson 335/345/355 thinline type of instrument will fit the bill. Also look at the Ibanez Artist two humbuckers coil-tap guitars.
    Towards the middle, you can't go wrong with a Strat. (or a G&L) Lots of variety and great tonal range.
    More towards the rock/country end of things, a Telecaster would be the choice.

    ... and the best choice? One of each!!!

    I use a Hamer Slammer tele. I really like it, manily cause of the action and ease of tuning.
