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.

An Ibanez RG with AANJ. I don't have particularly man sized hands, and I can hit every fret on my PGM (which even has a thicker neck than your average Prestige Ibanez).

Without a doubt, but between the slim body, Floyd routing and the scoop the tone is just disgustingly thin.
I'd go for an SG with a Slim Taper neck and a pair of high output pickups.

Any and all V shaped guitars

No, typically V's have horrible fret access. Most have the body coming out of the fretboard around the 20th fret.

Quote by Junnage
The Gibson SG

Set neck, fretboard comes out of body at about the 20th fret as well.


The winner.... Gary Kramer Turbulence.

Any superstrat would be a good choice though.

Forgive me for being stupid, but what's a super strat? A strat shaped guitar with humbuckers or something?

V's are pretty cool. Haven't played a V enough to know about it's neck access.

The SG on the other hand has really great fret access. That's why a lot of slide guitarists use it! (If you don't believe me, check out Duane Allman or Derek Trucks, though they aren't the only ones).

Gary Kramer Turbulence reaches higher frets, but I'm not sure that's what the OP meant by fret access. I think he/she meant reaching the frets on the guitar.

Moreso than any other neck thru guitar.

And not all neck thru guitars lack a heel.

An SG with replaced pickups,

B.C. Rich Warlock has 24 very accessible frets, but other than that I would -not- recommend that guitar. There are also several ESP models with excellent upperfret access, my own EX-400 being one of them. It's not the best, and it only has 22 frets, but I rather like it myself.

I think it's a strat shaped guitar, H-S-H, 24 frets, and usually a floyd rose
