I am coming into a good bit of money and have to decided to buy the nicest guitar I possibly can. I play mostly metal, but good blusey clean sounds are necessary as well. Budget is around 2,500 dollars but I will go higher if necessary. I like thin, unfinished necks, but painted works as well. I want an HSH configuration or an HH or SSH. A good trem is also necessary, with good pickups and hardware.

Thanks

They seriously go metal quite well. Very nice trem. HH. Might want to switch the rotary knob for a 3 way switch though.

B.C Rich Warlock. Oh yeahh.

Actually I dunno. But Ibanez is pretty good. Or Jackson.

Vigier Blues, that guitar is sick. PRS are nice but the Vigier just takes the cake for me man. The walnut version was reviewed in Guitarist a while back and they gave it one of their high scores, very nice.

if you want a thin neck, those little thin necks that ibanez use for necks work. they are quite small and they bolt on most of their necks up until about 2000. i wont recomend them but if your looking for a thin neck ibanez is what you want, you can use whats left to get new pickups, replace the edge III, and get a nic new paint job unless you get a JEM model in which case you can still get those pickups and replace the edge III.
if you want metal with blues go with a B.C. rich mocking bird (since youve got the money the high end richs are godly) or bich, or a gibson les paul in the 2000s range.
i would personally recomend deans, but thats just me

Just get it cut a little. It will grow back. Besides why is it so important to look metal? That's just retarded.

How are the necks on a PRS?


it MIGHT be a little wider than you want. But they're some of the most comfortable necks I've ever played.

Im gonna say Vigier again. You probably dont know them but they are the guitars used by shawn lane and bumblefoot. They have super low action, great feel, and you can get get great sounds from them. Dont listen to these guys saying jackson and such and such, they are shooting some cheap guitars.

p.s. the carvin necks are pretty nice to play on, they are made from rock maple and they are very smooth and very substantial.

Where can you get Vigiers?

Online. Or you can go to their website, just type in Vigier, and locate a dealer near you.
