So since my guitar was defective Musicians Friend will give me an upgrade due to it being backordered(really nice of them), whats the best electric around $500? Was getting a schecter damien 6 fr (prob gonna end up waiting for backorder, really like this guitar). Going to go to guitar center to play some soon.

Since you're looking at Schecter Damiens I guess a Standard Tele is out of the picture. Can you give us a couple bands or genres you like playing?

I have not played a S I guess I will try one soon. Are the pickups good/how are wizard 3 necks? I know wizard 2 are pretty nice.

Screeching high metal lead stuff, but I play everything(including classical music lol) Also are Damien elite fr alot better then the standard (can't find one where I live would a hellraiser be comparable?) I have read a review saying the standard plays better but if thats bs idk....

Schecter Guitars with Licensed Floyd Roses have NO tuning stability. Save up double your money and get a Hellraiser FR.

The licensed floyd on the damien at least is a floyd rose special.... (also since I am getting an upgrade now seems like a pretty good time to get something)

Check out the most recent issue of Guitar Player. I don't think anyone here could give you a more in depth run down on the nicest $500 guitars better then they already did. Checked to see if the article was on the web, doesn't look like it.

Has to be the J Mascis Squier Jazzmaster Signature model. Pretty much the closest thing you will get to a Jazzmaster for $380.

Getting rave reviews.

Yamaha Pacifica 112 - You could pick one up for about $350 - $400 and still get a cheapish behringer amp within you budget.
