    Get a HSH in the guthrie Govan wiring - gives you coil splots on the neck, and strat/tele tones in the middle positions

    Here are the pickup settings for the GG Model:

    1 - Neck humbucker
    2 - Outside coil of neck humbucker and middle
    3 - Outside coils of both humbuckers
    4 - Inside coil of bridge humbucker and middle
    5 - Bridge humbucker

    Push-pull tone pot - split neck HB, outside coil of neck HB

    wtf is this shit?

    Finish your damn solo album. Release it as an instrumental without some cockbag yelling over it. Take my money.

    HSS Strat I would imagine is the most versatile. Or a HSH Super Strat where positions 2 and 4 get some nice single coil sounds.

    Don't forget to save some money for a therapist to help deal with the soul sucking nature of a wedding band.

    This or an HSS with non-noiseless singles would be my go to. Then I would get 2 of them. Function bands are about playing all night so I would never show up without a backup of basically the same guitar.

    For a Rig, I would get a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and have a pedal board that was Wah>Comp>Klon>TS>Marshall style drive>Chorus>Delay then use the reverb on the amp.
