need help finding the new one

Hey there UG, been a while since i came on here LOOKING for advice but that time always comes....

im getting rid of some gear (if anyones interested http://losangeles.craigslist.org/la...3839330091.html
http://losangeles.craigslist.org/la...3839342745.html)

and if everything goes well ill be in the market for a new axe

my budget is going to lie in the $600 and under range. Used isnt a problem.

what im looking for in the new purchase is a solid player, something that is fluid and comfortable. im not expecting the greatest tones but a solid clean tone is essential, i can work on the distortion. my ideal pickup config would be humbucker in the bridge and a single coil in the neck, but again, i can work around that.

i live in LA, been looking around CL and the eBay and hit nothing yet.

see what u guys can throw at me!

ohh and i want a 6 string

What kind of style are you looking to play?

If you're just thinking straight R&R, Godin has a guitar called the Richmond Belmont. Here's a used one in Wisconsin:

The bridge HB is a SD '59. The singlecoils are SD Lipsticks.



Reverend has been making the Double Agent for a while:

http://www.reverendguitars.com/inst...uble-agent-iii/

That's a HB in the bridge paired with a P90 in the neck. Rev doesn't make a lot of guitars, but theyre good. So finding a used one might be tough, but might be worth it.


Fret-King is a UK company that makes a pretty solid axe. I just bought one earlier this year, from Frets Guitar Centre:

http://www.fretsguitarcentre.co.uk/...Guitars_03.html

The Super 60HB is what I purchased...because the Super 60SP I wanted was out of stock. My HB60 delivers solid classic rock tones at all selector positions. I bet the SP60 is every bit as tasty as its cousin. At £399, that translates into just over $600. As I recall, mine was a little over £400, and with the taxes adjusted for not being in the UK, and with shipping & import duties, it was still under $700.

the style to be played on he guit is gonna be anything from jazz to classic rock, and into grunge...maybe metal (trying to cater to my new bands sound)
they do look like solid axes but between shipping charged and fees i dont think i like the idea of buying a guitar online without being able to play one.

Fair enough- it's not for everyone.
