Recommended guitar for rythm

I have just landed the position of rythm guitar in a band, and i was wondering which guitar would be best. My jem doesn't seem to do the trick.

Any ideas are welcome.

Re: Recommended guitar for rythm

Just as an idea, and because it might be helpful, you should probably say what kind of music you are playing. I don't think a Tele would cut it for technical brutal death metal...

Well all around really, From green day to U2 To Anthrax and others. Maybe an epiphone les paul. I have a small budget of about 250 euros.

Re: Recommended guitar for rythm

I have a 1973 Telecaster Deluxe (beat to heck, but awesome nonetheless) that I have dubbed "The Best Rhythm Guitar in the World". While I have a nice stash of stringed things lying about, this guitar is unparalled in this field. The Seth Lover pickups offer the perfect blend of warm neck, twangy bridge, and a perfectly balanced middle position. Highly recommended!

Re: Recommended guitar for rythm

I would think a Les Paul would make a nice rhythm guitar. It fills up a good amount of sonic space, and doesn't get in the way a whole lot. Epiphone does make some nice stuff.

For songs I play mostly lead on, I play a Strat. For songs I play a lot of rhythm on, I play the LP.

Re: Recommended guitar for rythm

MiM/MiJ Fenders are always a good idea. I use my Jaguar H/H Special for all things rhythm.

Re: Recommended guitar for rythm

If I was in a band, my job is rhythm guitarist, my kind of music is : hit the distortion, play palm mute down strokes/upstrokes, open chords, power cords.... yes.. les paul is my choice.
that thing has tight bottom end.

Re: Recommended guitar for rythm

I think I'll go for a squire telecaster, and for the more heavy things i'll use the jem. But i can't quite make up mind if top go with an epiphone les paul instead.

Re: Recommended guitar for rythm

Would haved thought the JEM would have suitable...
Go the Epi LP and upgrade the pups to coil splittable would make a great back up to the JEM.

Re: Recommended guitar for rythm

thats a good idea,
See I find the jem a bit tyring to strum all the time, beacuse i use it for soloing and stuff it doesn't feel comfortable playing rythm for a whole song.

There's no such a thing as a guitar model to play rythms or a guitar model to play leads.
You play what you like to.
There's no guitar to play metal,rock,blues whatever,you play what you like.
It's not your jem that's not doing the trick but.........YOU.
I can play whatever I want with any guitar,necks are a little different but still guitars are the same,what makes them sound different is (example) if you use a weak single pup to play metal,it'd cut your gain so a high gain humbucker would be better but you can play metal with any guitar even with acoustic guitar lol
