coil tap
well balanced shape (not like a les paul)
251/2'' Scale
mahogany & maple cap
really good upper fret access
Medium Frets not jumbo

looks a lot nicer than old dinkys, but i dont want alder, bolt on, jumbo frets and want 3 a side tuners

btw i can afford up to about £1500 which i think is $2500usd

Definitely look at Carvin. I don't know about shipping to Europe because they're made in the U.S, but they usually cost around $1000-$1500 and you custom order them to your specifications.

TS, GET AN IBANEZ S5470!!!! It's amazing!!! I'm all excited just talking about it!!! Literally my favorite guitar of all time. It plays better than any guitar I have ever touched. Do it. And you can install active pups.

i like the way you think, second thread in a row.


anyways, Ibanez S and S prestiges are incredibly versatile. Ibanez isnt just about shredding, they can do almost any genre, and then just about all of them with a mere pickup swap.

I think you meant to say not just about shredding....

Anyway, the single coil gives you... um... single coil tones, and the humbuckers give you... humbucker... tones... FTMFW!!

Anyway, TS, the S5470 has a trem, but it's a great trem and if you learn how to deal with one, it won't be too much of a bother.

The PRS guitar I have get's very different tones just from the guitar without touching the amp.

What about an LTD H-401?

My bad. I didn't see that detail.



Still a good suggestion

A jackson dominion fits alot of the things you are looking for. If I wasn't getting an esp for my next guitar, I would probably get this one, because it seems versitile, and jackson is a great company.

unfortunately if you really want all that things then really you're best bet is to go with a custom guitar. i was gonna say just get a mim strat and mod it to hell but looks like it doesn't meet your criteria's much.

yeah, that's what I was going for too...
TS if you have that budget, stretch it a little bit more and go Custom Shop.

Dimebag Darrell.

I don't know about blackouts or other actives, but the EMGs I've played on fail hard at full, rounded warm jazz tones.
I also think that Carvin would be a good bet, even if you don't get on direct, used Carvins have a low resale value being custom guitars so you can get a pretty good deal if you hold out for one which has the same/similar specs you want.

FMT telecaster?

It's kinda like a cross between a les paul and a tele. It also has coil tappable humbuckers.
***Short Sig***
#29
Schecter C-1 (pretty much any model)

Coil taps, 25.5 scale, Ultra access to high frets, not heavy etc etc
