The Agile AL-3000 series guitars have ebony fretboards and are pretty nice. I'm very happy with mine. In fact most Agile models have ebony fretboards and are good mid range guitars if you don't like the les paul shape.

I have one of these things from two years ago. It feels, sounds and looks brilliant, and on top of it all the newer models have coil-splitting. And I know it says it's $800-$850, but that's the MSRP. Just as an Am. Std. Fender's MSRP is $1,590-$1,780, but they go for $1,200-$1,350, through a Dillion dealer, a DR1500 will run about $400-$450 instead of $800-$850.

Parker PM10/20


I own a PM10, and the ebony fretboard is absolutely silky! I'd back even Parker's lowest end guitar 100%.

That thing looks stunning! Where are there Dillion dealers? They aren't listed on the site as far as I can tell...

Dust_to_Dust, I love that Ran custom

I'll check out the higher end BC Rich stuff, but I don't really like Schecter necks.

rooster546, I love the look of the Parker Fly, but the PM doesn't really do it for me...anyway, if I went with a Parker, I'd go all the way and get a Fly Mojo

I'd check out Agile, but all they have is LP-shaped 6-stringers and I'm looking for more of a super-strat shape..

I'll also be checking out some Michael Kelly stuff.

They aren't listed, but on the front page is the owner and founder's email. Tell him you're interested and within a day he'll respond referring you to the email of the guy I bought mine from, who I believe ships out of Connecticut.

Thanks, I'll do that!

How's the build quality, etc.?

What does the neck compare to?

Well, QC and build quality generally very good. I own three from the brand and all three are rock solid to the point if I ever experience success I intend to endorse them, I've played at least a dozen through my guitar teacher, who's also a dealer for them, and they've all been excellent instruments, I have no concerns about ordering one without trying it whenever I've ordered a new one from them. They're made in handmade in Korea but use imported woods, so costs are kept down, good wood is used, they're hand-made despite the price and they can kick the ass of most things in their pricerange in my experience.

Edit; The neck is about a modern C-shape, a good comparison would be, in my experience, a Mexican strat or a wide-thin profile PRS neck.

Oooh that sounds awesome, I was checking out some PRS stuff, but those Dillions cost less than even an SE and have pretty much my ideal specs

Yeah, medium-higher end B.C. Rich guitars have very nice ebony fretboards, which usually come with nice pearl-diamond inlays. Check out some of the Beast/Warlock/Warbeast models, you can get one with a nice ebony fretboard for around $400 or so.

Unispex, I don't really want a crazy pointy guitar, just a super-strat shape

So far, my little list of stuff to check into:

BC Rich ASM Pro
BC Rich Assassin PX3T
Dillion DR-1500
Michael Kelly Hex Deluxe
PRS Custom SE
PRS Paul Allender SE

The SEs are there...just because I dig them

But I don't really want actives, so that's a bit of a problem with the ASM and the MK...

Washburn X50 Pro. The one pictured is the FE version, which in my eyes, is the sexiest guitar with EMG's.

There's just something magical about ebony fretboards..

I'm really not too sure about the details on Jackson necks. It's weird though; on their site, it says that the Dinky and Soloist have the exact same neck dimensions, but while I love the Soloist neck, I really dislike the Dinky neck

Maybe because it's painted?
