Schecter? I know their necks are a touch thicker, but other than that it fits.
UG POKER!

TL;DR: Saw a girl at Wal-Mart, she started feeling me up, I jizzed in my pants.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

[quote="'[BurnTheDusk"]']I agree, tone does sound better the closer your genitals are to the ground.

Crabcore?

UNACCEPTABLE

Get Blackouts or Livewires. They're good pick-ups and they're active.

It sounds as though you are describing an LTD EC-1000. Check them out. I don't know if you can special order one but I would think you could. ie Ebony fret board and JBs The Sunburst has everything but the ebony. Or for more money the real

The older EC-1000s had sperzel so I bet they just changed what they are calling them. Th Eclipse Models do have Gotoh Magnums. They are sweet Guitars

Just get a Gibson.
I bet if someone gave you two of the same guitars with different pick ups you wouldn't notice the difference.

I don't really get what you're saying, you rather just drop two thousand dollars just so you won't have to put "grover" tuners on your guitar... Like it really even matters.

What you want is all Gibson qualified specs. You have the money to get one. No other brand is going to have a more "thin U neck similar to 60's gibson"

Btw, aren't the 60's necks more slim? My dad has a 60's reissue Les Paul and it's pretty flat.

Get one custom built by one of UG's resident amateur luthiers in GB&C. Quite a few of them work very quickly (LP Addict is one of the best builders on the forum. Check out some of his stuff if you don't believe me. I recommend his Tele neck-thru for starters. Beautiful guitar), and you honestly are never going to get everything you want from a mass-produced guitar.

Gibson LPs only have 22 frets.. it's easy to replace the tuning machines but it's absurd to change the whole neck and make it 24 frets.. your best bet would be the ESP LTD.. it's got all that you want TS..

I was gonna say a Schecter C-1 Blackjack ATX but you don't like the necks.
