Sorry to make another one of these, but, I want a guitar that can do what a Strat cannot. It will be used for 50s Rock and Classic Rock. I will have a well-paying job this Summer, so try and keep it under $1200.

How hot are the pickups? They're not too hot for said genres, right?

i wouldn't think so, you could roll off the volume a bit if that was the case.

Another idea, how about hollow bodies/semi-hollows?

Humbuckers or P-90s, is what i meant, and don't want to butcher my Strat. Telemetal, I've heard the Casino is pretty good.

Lespauledit: I played a SG Classic, and it was sweet.

I like the ESP, but can't try it, I don't think anyone sells them locally. I can order one, but won't get to try it.

can you try the casino? since that looks like a safe bet for what you want to play
#11
Possibly, Guitar Center and Alpha Music should have one, though, I'm not buying anything until June, I'm just trying to decide now, to get it out of the way.

well if you can get your mits on a casino, and it feels nice, that'd be the one i'd say
#13
Ok, thanks, I will try, usually, if you want to buy it, Guitar Center will let you try it out. Also, the Dot felt pretty nice. Are the P-90s in the Casino dirty enough for overdrive, but clean enough for my Deluxe Reverb?

easily, p-90s can get really gritty when they need to, not all out humbucker gritty, but substantially more so than singles, and they can do the sparkly cleans of true singles

Ok, and what is the difference between the Casino and the Elitist Casino?

I don't recommend passive pickups for any kind of blues tone. Ideally, you'd want a passive pickup with a reasonably low level of output.

Really though, what is the difference? I'm starting to think I may want a solid body after reading about all the hum.

Well, I do a little bit of metal, Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, but 75% of the time, it'll be Classic or 50s Rock.

If you want something a strat can't do and doesnt look like a strat, get a Hagstrom F-20P. Its got P-90's, and I've heard some great tones out of them.
