The American-Made PRS Tremonti will feel MUCH different from your SE. It will have a thicker body, thinner neck, and most likely will come with a tremolo (though they now are offered with a fixed...

It's only too many when you have more than you use :shrug: Some guitarists (Keith Richards, Max Cavalera) don't even put all 6 strings on their guitar.

It's a little silly when someone owns an 8...

This probably isn't much advice, but when I went back to using LP's I found my tone was much better when I rolled the bass back to about 9:00 and brought the mids up. Totally depends on your setup...

I love the Duncan Distortion, and similar high-output ceramic pickups (Tremonti, 500T, etc...). They always sound killer going into Rectifiers and other modern high-gain amps.

In all my years of...

EC-1000's! Great Les Paul style guitar at a fraction the cost, and arguably better construction.

Epiphones are crap... COMPARED to Gibson. For guitars under $600 though, they're not bad. They serve as great slates for upgrading.

Even as a Gibson lover, among those choices I'd have to say go with the LTD.

Epiphones may look more like your typical Les Paul, but IMHO they feel plastic-like and sound muffled. Even a low end...

No amp at the moment but I do play through plugins such as Revalver and Poulin. Not planning on getting an amp til I'm back into live playing.

But I do enjoy playing my electric guitars acoustically.

I ask because I thought that Studios from that era only came in black, white, or transparent red, so I'd question the age of the guitar. But I could be totally wrong on that.

1.14 Dunlop Black Fang. To me, they feel like a great midpoint between the sharpness of a Jazz III and the fullness of a standard sized pick. Equally great for soloing and rhythm.

500T sounds awesome. It does also sound identical to a Seymour Duncan Distortion, so if you want more options (color or cover) you could go with that too.

For Alter Bridge, the Tremonti pickups should be a no-brainer. As a huge Mark Tremonti fan, I think the Duncan Distortion is also perfect for the job. Perhaps it would pair well with a Duncan Jazz.

Dunlop James Hetfield Black Fang. To me it feels like the mid-point between the 'fullness' of a standard sized pick and the sharp attack of a Jazz III. Really the best of both worlds.
