Hey everyone, I'm looking for a new guitar. I'd like something with humbuckers that isn't from a big brand (Fender, Gibson, Epiphone, etc) if possible. Extra points for a whammy bar or Bigsby.

My dream guitar is probably a Travis Bean 1000A but I need to keep the price within $1000US so that's a no-go. This picture pretty much shows what I want it to look like though:

Any ideas? Thanks in advance
i would say a les paul double cutaway but i imagine those cost more than that, unless you are willing to ebay it

I'd recommend a Paul Reed Smith Mira but finding those under $1000 would be a little difficult. Maybe check Ebay?

Or maybe a Michael Kelly Hourglass?


You could also check with J Nunis guitars. They mainly deal in custom orders so it could run more then $1000 but I do know that they make a double cut guitar and they are a small guitar company. But they do make very nice stuff.
Gear List:
Paul Reed Smith Mccarty Korina
Budda Superdrive II 30
Marshall 1960VA
Washburn WI66ANC
