Kramer has a new LP-shaped guitar with a floyd that was at NAMM but it's flat top with bright red binding and black finish (A la BC Rich).

Other than that i think Burny made some LP copies with floyds, and shinozuku already posted the LTD.

If you dont use 24 frets you don't have to use the extra 2 That LTD will actually probably give you better access to the 22nd fret, and probably be as good or better than most other copies you'd find (depends though).
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

I took a look at the kramer lp with floyd. Looks really cool but it had 24 frets ;(

What's your aversion to 24 frets anyway, if you don't mind me asking?

Looking at how the FR is mounted on that Les Paul I don't think you can do any pull up with that thing. Destroys half of the reason to have a FR.

well the reason i don't like 24 frets is the fact it feels different for me. The neck feels longer (im a short person) to me. Also i like to keep it simple 22 and 21 frets.

HOLY **** THAT ESP LOOKS AWESOME I WISH IT DIDN'T HAVE EMGS THOUGH
#16
There might be some on Rondomusic. Kramer also has a new one out with a Floyd.

Found this:

http://www.rondomusic.com/al2000floyd.html

Couldn't see any of the higher end Agiles with one. Depending on how much money you do have, maybe get it custom made by them?

The extra frets won't change how the neck feels, they will however change how your neck pickup sounds.

As for EMGs, try an 85 or a 60 in place of the 81. 81s sound kinda 'cold', 85s are nice and warm.

Neal Schon does have custom LPs made for him! DOn't know if they're available to anyone else though. His have Fernandes Sustainers, on board electronics up the hoop and a special neck set angle so the Floyd Rose Bridge doesn't have to sit too high off the Top. (Remember FRs were desinged for zero neck to body angle guitars)
Moving on.....

I would suggest to you you either go with something like the ESP EC series with Floyd Rose bridges, or you look at building your own guitar using Warmoth.

And don't worry about not affording that Axcess; it's a really crap guitar anyway. I mean seriously, even if it had Epiphone on the headstock instead and only cost £500, the quality was still far below acceptable levels on the three I've played.

I would strongly advise you staying away from cheaper made-in-Asia LP copies with Floyd Roses in them too. At those sorts of price points the craftsmanship is going to be low, the Floyd Rose is likely going to be a poor copy, and you're going to end up with something sub-par. If you can't afford the ESP or a Warmoth build, it is a far better idea to save up until you can afford those than settle for something that will be sub-par and piss you off every time you try to use it.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

yeah, Mr. Flibble is right, the Gibson Axcess's arent all that great. ive plyed about a half dozen and they were definately not aas nice as other Gibsons. but those Agiles are suposed to be really nice. as long as you do a pup and trem swap theyll play fine.

If you're worry about the FR quality of the Agile AL2000 w/FR, i think is a direct swap for an OFR.

I'm aware you didn't actually ask me, but having the neck pickup at that position picks up strong harmonic overtones, which is worth forgoing those extra 2-3 notes.
