    Sounds like a perfect opportunity to get a used Gibson les Paul if you don't have one. Traditional or even a standard should be in your budget.

    Although.. following the trend of players using teles for jazz, I came across this one: check this player on Instagram, he's great! This guitar is a combination of a Fender and a Gibson, can obviously cover anything, and visually too. I'm thinking of building one in the style myself, but with a Gibson scale as well.. and left handed! Difficult in Europe though But so practical, for traveling and practicing, during the summer, etc..

    Another guitar that is great and very versatile is the Gibson Nighthalk (or Blueshawk depending on tastes)!

    I told him to get mid early 2000s Studio.

    He doesn't like idea.

    Amazing guitars, and super cheap.

    And yeah, no to Standard. Has Burstbucker PROs which are hard rock pickups.
    Traditional has Classic 57s, much more better for jazz, since they are like Duncan 59s.

    Friend has Burstbucker Pros on his Studio Fadded ~2012.
    Bright and more high output.
    Classic 57s are traditional PAF clone.
    Far better pickups for jazz , so .....

    **

    Studio has 490R 498T , which are most versatile so ....
    I would say Burstbucker PROs are most bad of the 3 so .....

    Just a reminder: Jeff is not going for a jazzy guitar:

    I should mention, the project would be a dad rock thing I'd probably never share here, but I found some dads of my kids' friends who play drums, keys, and a multi-instrumentalist who prefers bass, and they dig stuff like the Allmans and the Dead, but also Sabbath and Crimson and Zappa stuff, and I just don't have a guitar to play this stuff on, and I can't change my tele setup, it's perfect as is.

    He wrote - no Les Paul in 1st post so.
    He did say SG .....
    He specifically rule out Les Paul so ...

    **

    SG should rule that rocky stuff.
    SG then without a problem.
    Light, rocky, can clean if u want.
    SG is awesome.

    This thread is making me realize the choices of dual humbucker guitars *I* would consider are not that interesting. Makes me like my Tele even more!

    For me, the first issue is the feel of the neck.

    I can't tell from an hour in the store whether or not I'm going to get used to it or fall in love with it. So buy with a return privilege.

    There are other considerations, like sound, weight, ergonomics, appearance, resale potential etc.

    I don't know how to advise anybody else which feel and sound they're going to like.

    If I was to buy one tomorrow, I'm not sure what I'd get.

    Me too!

    I am just the opposite and have learned over the decades that I know within a minute. But maybe I don't try too hard to adjust. There are So. Many. Guitars. from which to choose.

    Same, if guitar doesn't impress me in first 5 min, waste of time. XD

    **

    Well. I love very specific neck, so I can eliminate 98% of them like right away. XD
    But that creates a problem of me wanting to have custom made. XD

    I played a Paul for 13 years as my #1. Went acoustic only for about 7 years, than when I got back into electric got an SG. Never looked back wishing for a Paul again. They are very versatile guitars, second only to Strats on that score in my opinion.

    If you decide to go that way, make sure you play some before you pull the trigger. Some folks don't get along with the neck positioning, and some SGs (not all of them) are neck-heavy.

    I'd second the advice above to get a medium-power tube amp as well, for the stuff y'all do.

    Budget will be $1500, but preferably closer to 1k.
    Have you considered Reverend guitars? For example, the Jetstream HB is a two-humbucker solidbody guitar for $1K.

    Another possibility might be the Fender AmPro Telecaster Deluxe Shawbucker. 2xHB, $1450.

    How would the responses compare? I was banned from TGP years ago, and have never wanted to return.

    I have no problems with recommending guitars.

    But fight over headstock signature and name is pointless. xD
    Same as being c0cky over having 3000$ guitar.

    I have 0 issues with people recommending guitar gear.

    But I have problem with attitude:
    " My guitar cost 3000$, so go faq yourself. " xD
    Or:
    " Fender is awesome, Gibson can 5uck 1t. ". xD

    And stuff like that.

    Around 2002 there was a SG Faded i think it was. It had moon dots.
    The one I tried sounded good although in that time early to mid 90's Gibsons were suposed to be better.
    It should be dirt cheap for a Gibson and IT HAS A BEEFY NECK.
    I don't recall It being neck heavy, but If It was a Les Trem ll would fix that...

    if were're doing this sight unseen, i'd much rather roll the dice on an mij yamaha revstar than anything that said gibson on it. so few are available used, though they very occasionally fall near the listed budget, but i'd rather stretch for one of those than your standard mic/mik offerings, though several aren't bad. even their non mij stuff is reported to be unusually nice.

    that kh esp looks so much better in wine red sparkle.

    I recently got an Ibanez AZ, I love it... great neck, not a thin neck... loads of tonal options, plays like butter, not expensive
    HH telecaster is also a good idea,
