Can Anyone help me with a few choices. I have quite stubbly hands and 7.5" from wrist to middle finger tip.
My strat copy I have at the moment has always made my hand ache after a while when fretting the bottom E and A strings.
I've been advised to get a guitar that is in the style of a les Paul but I don't want to get a les paul because I like to be a bit different from the mainstream.
I would however like to have something along these lines and also have a coil tap to give me some versatility.
The 3 guitars I have been considering are the:
Washburn WI200 PRO-E - http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=E11zGA3-yb4

Vintage AV2 - http://www.jhs.co.uk/vintageadvance.html#av2

Cort M600 - http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=qj2-Z2p3UUs&feature=PlayList&p=1A5F34381A7811EA&index=4

What I really need to know is are the neck profiles small for good playability. I did try a schecter sunset extreme today, guitar iteself was not suitable for what I want, but the neck was fantastic, could easily get my fingers up to the bottom E with little effort.
Anyone with knowledge of these guitars and other possible candidates please let me know.

Rock On

washburn those are worth the money and best guitars in their price range.

where else can you get a guitar with grover tuners, emg 81/85 pickups and maple neck for under 250 quid?

Ideally anything with a 24 3/4" neck would be suitable. A Les Paul would be good for due to having that scale length.

You could try SG's or anything like that.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

I'm very tempted with the Washburn but have they got a thin neck. Also where have you seen it for £250?
Also would I be better going for the Pro-E or the Pro as I saw an article that made out the EMG pickups are better for metal and the Seymore Duncons for Rock.
What's your take on this?

If you want a thin neck, anything except ibanez or jackson would probably be fine. However, les pauls tend to have thick, meaty necks. Wouldn't a thin neck fit better if you have small hands?

I thin neck is what I want. Sorry for any confusion.
Now that you have a backup, you can just sand down the neck of your strat copy a bit.

Deep*Kick. You have destroyed every concept of life I've ever had.
RG's are mostly built for very fast shred and metal playing, although they can be modded for rock. Ibanez ART300 might do you good. 24 3/4" scale, active pickups with very good tone contorl and versatility, Les Paul shape, all the good stuff.
