okay, i always read the forums/reviews on here, have done for two years and know i have a question of my own. Already made a mistake, heres to a fail free thread.

basically, i'm 15 and i'm after a new guitar, i've had a fair few, and over the 6 or 7 years of playing, i've found my favourite hardware etc, but need it in one guitar.

i'm after neck-through construction, a decent trem system, preferably original floyd, active emgs, and an ebony fretboard, the last one's optional.

if any of you can find a standard superstrat shape that has all that for around £500, or a little more i would appreciate, as i know it isn't easy to find such guitars at that price

thanks in advance

Tricky...I don't know about neck-through, but these are at least set-neck. The thing is, not many guitars at that range have OFRs. Imo the best LFRs are made by Ibanez on the prestige models (Edge/ Edge Pro). There's also the S series with the ZR trem (not too expensive), but those don't have EMGs.

I'd get the Schecter C-1 FR, it's $500. Not an OFR, but a pretty good LFR. Then you can put a set of EMGs in it (81/60 or 81/85, whichever you prefer).

Also check out the ESP MH-400:

Not the best LFR, but it does have 81/85 pups. There's also the M-400 if you want 81 in both neck and bridge.

Play it before you buy it, you might not like the neck.


Way to recommend a guitar more than $200 over his price range. But yeah, it is a good guitar.
