    Looking to add another electric guitar. I have a Fender 72 Tele thinline HB, 2016 Fender thinline with the noiseless single coils, a Fender blacktop jaguar with upgraded electronics, stock HB, and a route 101 Strat copy with split coil seymour duncan design.
    Interested in several but curious about the opinions here on the Guild S-200 T, Reverend Jetstream or double agent, and Sterling St Vincent? Any other suggestions Budget $700-$900

    Strat......Sure that's where I started and where I may end up, but I was thinking about something different or eclectic. The recent Revelation guitar post tweaked my interest as well.

    I know I couldn't make it without my humble strat, but I also have my eyes on a jazzmaster someday.

    Always like the look of the Danolectro stuff. I'll check it out.

    It seems that you have Fender body styles covered in your arsenal, and you favor noiseless single coils or humbuckers. Accordingly, my first thought if you're going for something different was something with dual P-90s.

    Epiphone has its Inspired by 1955 LP "Outfit" (which appears to mean it comes with a hardshell case) available right now, and within your budget.

    I have no experience with the Guild or Reverends you mentioned, so I can't speak to those. And the P-90s aren't going to be noiseless, so if your choices to this point have been because you're bothered by 60 cycle hum, then maybe the 1955 LP or other guitars with P-90s aren't the way to go.

    Nice.... I had not considered a p90 epiphone...... Thanks. I'm not particularly partial to noiseless, it was more of a I got lucky with the 72 Tele as my first electric situation and it had HB which at the time meant little to me, but it did give me a baseline.

    I've been watching, listening to p90 reviews and I'm now dialed in on that's what I want to add next. Looking into the 55 Epiphone(kinda fancy, but beautiful) and other p90 instruments my wife came out of the kitchen to ask which one I was listening to, she and her friend both liked it, surprisingly I got the go ahead if I really, really like it, ((I deserve it) ..... What is up with that....... Did anyone else hear ominous music?) While outside my original budget, no experience with Epiphone or Gibson what are your thoughts on the new
    "Gibson Firebird Studio 2018 Electric Guitar" on YouTube



    Until the firebird I was considering the suggested Epiphone or a BFG P90 Les Paul.
    Fixated on a P90 ....... With an expanded budget 700 - 1400 what else should I consider?

    Thanks for the input so far, I appreciate it.

    Learn to play guitar properly and your choice of axe will become much less important. I spent years trying different combinations of guitars, amps and pedals when all I needed was a few guitar lessons from a good tutor.

    Another suggestion - some kind of full hollowbody, either a 175 style or a thinner epi casino kind of thing. The casino comes with p90s too, if that’s what you’re after.

    Look at the Gibson 60’s Tribute with P90’s. Mine is my #1.

    You have teles and Jags and a strat, so I'm not sure why people are suggesting a strat...

    Go used, there are more options. How about a nice mid 2000s SG standard? Maybe an ES-339 or an epi Casino/casino coupe with P90s? I know those are more traditional that your listed options but they're great guitars, different from what you've got, and within your price range.
