Please help me. I looked at my guitars, and although they are "cool" and "sweet" and maybe even "cool ass" guitars, I don't have any "baller ass" guitars.

Both. :haha:

I don't usually like actives, but damn if that isn't a beautiful guitar, and the pickups definitely add to the look.

G400 if you must have one of the three.

So many better options if you go used. Strat, LP and SG bodies are just shapes. Yeah, the body shape and weight affects tone, but so do pickups and amp.

There's no point in going agile for strat or tele guitars. Just don't bother. You can get higher-quality strats and teles cheaper from the used market.

Ah well, some like fender, some don't. Their modern profile necks feel like thin junk to me, but most people disagree.

It isn't a bad price, but with those features, you could pay $100 less and get a used MiA Fender USA strat with the same finish, neck and pickup configuration.

You have to know what brands to look for when shopping Japanese.

Aria, '70s "lawsuit," Teisco, Lotus, etc could be good, but probably not. Those MIJ bolt-on LPs, I would avoid those.

They need to make more maple necked versions of their Tribute models.

I like the Japanese-style neck bolt on that Rampage. 3 bolts look sweet.

Something MIJ, vintage to the late 70s or 80s. Tokai, Fernandes and Greco would be my first ports of call, or maybe Squier MIJ. It's really more about getting specs you can't find in modern guitars....
