alright it seems a guitar that fits my specs doesnt exist. (although if you could find one for me it would be much appreciated)

is it cheaper to have jacson customshop or esp custom shop build you a guitar or would it be cheaper to just go to a local luthier?

all i want is
-24 frets
-no emgs
-thin neck
-no reversed headstock
-double locking trem

a guitar to those specs literally doesnt exist for 500-700 dollars which is why im thinking about having one custom built for me.
#2
Don't know if a luthier will hand-make you a custom guitar for the price range, either.
#3
What will it cost to have one custom built to those specs? Take that info and compare it to guitars already on the market. If you can't find anything already available, then have it built.
#4
A custom one is going to be more than 500-700 so if you find one with EMG's and switch it out it will end up being cheaper than a custom shop

what shape?

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

ummm..... ibanez? also, the ESP/Jackson custom shops are like 3-4k min.

GUITARS CURRENTLY USED
Ibanez RG7621
Ibanez RG121
ESP LTD H-400

majority of ibanezes and Jacksons in that range have that, id reccamend the schecter i just got too, i got it for 425 but that model is discontinued, and schecters have somewhat thick necks (thinner than gibson tho, and some fenders)
Eh.
#11
i was looking at ibanez guitars but why are the RGs so cheap? i cant find more than 2 for 500. i cant really see myself playing an ibanez S for the music i play and the bridges on RGAs suck.

almost every jackson in my pricerange is a jackson dinky and i will not own a guitar called a dinky. the only jackson that i see is an RR3 but it has 22 frets but i can settle.

i already have a schecter.

any other suggestions?

Dude, you'll never be happy with the guitar you want. The only thing I can think of that you will like is a Jackson SL2H Soloist which is way out of your price range.
Yeah
#15
save more money? A luthier won't make you a guitar for less then 2k. A custom shop won't make you a guitar for under 4.

Why don't you just get a PRS SE Torero and swap the pickups to passives or get a PRS SE Custom 24 and just use a non locking trem?

A person with a big list of requirements and not a lot of money is a person with not much of anything at all.

What?! Did you even READ my post? The Soloist is a guitar that meets your very own specs, but because I listen metallica you are not willing to check it out? **** dude, why not just go and play a different instrument then? There's nothing that'll please you. Sheesh.
Yeah

Are you really that picky? Holy ****, who cares. With this kind of attitude you'll never get a "good" (In your opinion) guitar with $600. My best guess is that you'll most likely end up with an Ibanez or Jackson of some sort, possibly Carvin once you actually start to actually look at them and try them out.

This guy is a moron. Instead of regarding people's answers he'll just delete his thread once he realizes he looks like a complete retard.

Then he'll make YET ANOTHER poll on a bunch of guitars that are so different from each other and then delete it again.

I was going to cut him some slack in the beginning until that thread with the retarded long list of his 'issues' with every guitar on the face of the planet.

Some of my faves from that list:
- "Great guitar but I don't like Jackson headstocks"
- "It's exactly what I want but I don't want to own a guitar named 'Dinky'"

There were more but he deleted that thread. Boy that was hilarious.

I say until this guy lets reality slap him in the face we should stop trying to "help" him because his troll-level is just too high for us.

That said posting in his ridiculous threads to "lol" is acceptable.

getting a chick and getting laid is something i NEED to do though, i cant stand feeling like the only virgin, and im so ashamed of it.

if i do somehow get a chick how can i speed up a relationship so i can cut to the chase?



well, i guess you could talk to her, and .... oh shoot sorry, i accidentally quoted you from another thread.


ok, umm EG question.
i guess i suggest you try a few of the guitars suggested, and if you're asking about custom shop, that you look OUTSIDE of guitar center.

just a suggestion...
