    id say go for a Ibanez Rg370dx, its worth the 23,000 it costs...
    its got a edge pro trem and infinity pickups, which, ive heard, are great..
    its got the ibanez wiz 2 neck and everything....so id say thats the best one, but im sure a lot more people will say otherwise...if your in bombay or something, try to go some guitar shop and try out guitars, find the best one that suits your comfort level..

    you need to go down to the shop and play the guitars before you pick one that suits you.

    someone may recommend the ibanez rg370dx for its ultra-flat almost concave neck or a squire strat for the name, or a kramer striker because it's
    • Designed in the USA "QuadRail" pickups with coil-tapping!
    • Lightning fast, Elliptical profile, 24-fret, Slim-Taper neck with maple fingerboard. It's even got Gotoh™ SG machine heads!

    you could have plenty of suggestions but then this is a small community and there's nothing like buying a guitar that plays well in your hands.

    if you do buy a guitar purely based on other people's reviews make sure you can return it in case it turns out to be not quite like you wanted

    thanks Anik8 and thehundrethone...atleast someone is here to help.... today i went to all the shops here in lahore and i couldnt find any original branded guitar all were copies made in taiwan and mainly in china...they were quite cheap but thats not the point...the problem is how will a chinese made and american made e.g les paul sound...i dont know as ive never played an electric guitar of good brands (just heard)though ive played copies which for now seems just perfect...i wouldnt be able to distingish the quality until n unless i play it ...i hope im making my point clear...so now i need help to get a good branded gear even second hand within my range i.e. 25k so can someone help ?

    hi...
    here's one...you said rock, jazz...so, i have a few ideas, but don't know where you can get them...US, Bangkok, Singapore, Dubai...for sure.
    try some archtop, you'll get a nice rounded sound, the les paul sound that you mentioned, plus some versatility... Ibanez are fine but not the RG series... try Artcore series or some Artist...great guitars at great prices...China, Indonesia, but doesn't matter...they're great... IBZ Jet-king is one cheap, and great, and very versatile guitar... Don't know about the prices of Yamaha's AS series...great...it's all a lot better than Epiphone Les Pauls, although they're also good for what you want...
    anyway a st-neck guitar, if possible (apart from Jet-King that i mentioned, but it's really good). also, if u can get a guitar from US, try PRS SE series...
