hello,

i was looking to buy a new guitar this week. I currently own a epiphone les paul standard. And it is a nice guitar i use it to play anything from blues to rock. But i was looking to get another guitar for heavier music and fast shredding. So i was looking for a guitar with a little more thinner neck than the les paul. Not that you can't shred fast on les paul i know you can but i would prefere a little thinner neck. I played the Dk2 dinky and i like the neck but i am open to suggestions. Btw i am left handed so link me some good thin neck left handed guitars and leave some feedback. I will also check for their reviews at the website here. Guitar playing is my hobby and i am not a serious musician or nothing but hey learning songs you like is always fun. Oh and my budget is around 700 dollars.

esp ltd EC-1000 BLK, seen a couple lefty's around
godin redline 2 (havent seen any lefty's, but godin is usually really good about it)
the jackson is also a really solid guitar. check out ibanez as well, they do make a fair number of metal friendly lefty's (dont know their line well enough off the top of my head)

Jackson dk2L. I own it, and love it. Great for shredding.
Right on your budget.

I say go for it. You've played it and liked it. Should be great reasons to get it.

How about a Fender Highway One Fat Strat?? Very versatile, thin neck, and both single and double coil pick ups.

I dont think it does but you can restring the strings and turn it around.

I own one and the sound is gr8. It has a thin neck and nice wide frets to allow fast shredding. And a choice of both single and double coil pick ups allow playing versatility.

Left handed and needing a guitar for heavier stuff, I'd say it's a no brainer to look at Schecter. They are one of the few brands that offer almost all of their range as a lefty option. As a lefty myself I'm all for supporting brands who aren't happily discriminating against us. i.e almost every other company

I tried a Dinky early on in my guitar playing career and honestly I've never owned a guitar for such a short period of time. I think I had it a week before I sold it on again. Maybe they've increased in quality since I played them though.
