Ibanez S420 would be better than the RG as it has a better trem system. From Jackson, either the Adrian Smith or SLX Soloists would be good options.

That Charvel looks awesome. In many ways it's a mahogany, single cut version of the Jackson Soloist I'm selling! With all that mahogany, does it seem similar to a Les Paul tonally to you?

The Chapman ML-2 is a nice design and I like the concept as I would be putting my own pickups into it but that makes it very similar to the Ibanez ARZ except that the Ibanez is close to being 150...

I suppose by 'Les Paul tone' I'm thinking of the kind of tone I associate with Gary Moore and Slash etc. with maybe a bit more compression than that. Essentially I want it to be quite dark, thick and...

What about an Ibanez ARZ? Other than the lack of fret markers, they seem quite good.

Mmmmm.....The EC-401 is certainly in the budget and that looks almost the same as the EC-1000 so that's a possibility. If only it had better access to the upper frets. I don't particularly want to go...

Les Paul question

I was looking at the Matt Heafy Epiphone Les Paul and I was really intrigued by how good the access was to the upper frets. This is always an area that has put me off Les Pauls in the past so I was...

Neither. I tried a JB and wasn't impressed at all. All of the Seymour Duncans I've tried turned to mud under gain. Di Marzios seemed better but there's nothing like Bare Knuckle. More expensive but...

It depends on the sound you're after. If you want it loud and clean, probably the Vypyr will be louder because it will have a bit more headroom on the clean channel but the more you push the...

A 5w valve amp will live with a Vypyr 30w, partly because as the volume increases, valve amps tend to sound better whereas solid state amps start to sound worse. The only problem with a 5w valve as...

Something to bear in mind as you were asking about doing gigs. A 15w valve amp will be loud enough for gigs and if you get a 20w-30w valve amp you'll never get it to full volume without making your...
