ive been having a heck of a time trying to find a full sized guitar that only has one pick up. the one pickup is usually a humbucker set at the bridge. but just about all the ones i find are 3/4 sized guitars.
anybody have any suggestions where i might find a full sized electric with just the one pickup. ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Gibson Melody maker would be my guess, but why do some people prefer to have only one pick up in a guitar, instead of 2 or more? Does it actually have any advantages? I am not saying this in a mocking "why the **** would you do this, this is retarded" kind of way, I really want to know. Cheers.

i personally like the one pickup because i really dont deviate too often from using the bridge pickup. i do use the middle and neck once in a while, but its not too often. right now i have a strat style washburn and the p/up switch shorts out every time i accientally tap on it while playing, so to me thats another advantage on a guitar with one p/up, theres no selector switch. really i think the whole one p/up thing is just a matter of preference, really.
and, yea, ive looked into the melody makers because my dream guitar is an explorer style body and i do like how they look. but i still dont want to make a move before exploring all my options(no pun intended). but yea, as of right now theyre right at the top of my wish list.

I know Phil X removes the neck pickup from some of his guitars. He says this is because even when the neck pickup is not in use, it is very slightly pulling on the strings, so taking it out improves the tone from the remaining pickup. Never tried it personally but I'm guessing it's not an enormous difference.

Sounds to me like what you actually need is a guitar that isn't slightly broken...

G&L Rampage

GREAT guitar, VERY reasonably priced. Try setting it up with an above average string gauge (or at least hybrids, the Kahler trem is very well suited for beefy strings) and you'll notice how the sustain is second to no other floating trem-equipped guitar

Oh, and you might wanna cover it with stickers like Jerrry Cantrell has 'cos it's not exceptionally pretty, imho

No, the guitar was built to play metal. Not pussy ass cowboy chords. They won't work on that guitar. Get a Gibson Hummingbird for that bullshit. .
