I have no idea what would be "comfortable" to you. One of my all-time favorite guitars is the Ibanez 540S http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/540S
which was also Frank Gambale's signature guitar.
I have one hanging on my wall. It is extremely light, extremely easy to play and has a lot of possibilities.
I'm sure it's both comfortable and versatile. But I don't particularly like shreddy
looking guitars. Even if you can play anything on them. I believe guitars reflect our taste and personality as much as clothes or cars. It shouldnt matter but it does.
It's also a question of wanting to pick it up as often as possible, My blonde Telecaster looks nice imo and I like to pick it up every day. So it makes sense that way.
I've seen polls of people rating comfort in different body shapes. I think Teles and Jazzmasters / Jaguars was on top. But of course they are also most common.
BTW Ibanez owners in general seem very pleased with their instruments. Good quality control I suppose.
