I was wondering if anyone new of a decent cheap guitar i could get. I've been playing for almost 4 years so im no noob.

I currently have a schecter c-1 classic which is an awesome guitar. However recently ive bacome rather tired with the same old tone (i know an amp is the main determining factor but i really do like the one i have now and cba changing it).

I wanted something with a basswood or alder body, set neck, a decent bridge, id like decent tuners but i dont mind upgrading and same with pickups (humbuckers btw). Oh and of course it has to have at least half decent build quality

Im looking to spend around £300 and would most definetly go used (ill probably use your reccomendations to search ebay with tbh)

Thanks

why basswood and alder ?

i can recommend the ESP/LTD MH-250,EC-256,EC-401, and M-200FM IF you don't mind having a floyd

like i said before purely for a change. Maybe more towards alder as its more different than mahogany than basswood is. Maybe just a lighter tone but i dunno maybe a mahogany body again but with really different pups. May put emgs or blackouts in this new one.

look at the Jackson's if you want the alder bodies i would avoid ESP basswood bodies for quality issues.

If you already have a guitar with humbuckers why get another?Get a Squire Tele or Strat.
I just got a Affinty Tele for less than $200 US brand new and was surprised by how good it was.Needed a setup and new strings but after that it played great.

there's not many guitars in that price that has a neck thru or set thru.

What is your amp? Because if you have a modeling amp, and you want to change from a mahogany humbucker guitar to a basswood humbucker guitar, it wont have that much of a difference.

Ibanez RGR421 but it doesn't have a set neck though which I don't know if it's that much of a big factor for you.
