Hey guys,

I'm about to buy a guitar and iv'e narrowed it down to three guitars: Charvel So-cal (Ferrari red), the Charvel DX-1 and the PRS SE Torero.

Basically i'm looking for a guitar that will satisfy my Rock, Metal needs for example: Metallica, Van Halen, Zeppelin, Megadeth, GNR...

The main reasons iv'e narrowed it down to these three are because the all have a Floyd Rose, Humbuckers, Suit both metal, rock and clean sounds (and they look good aswell), Nice neck profiles.

I would like to hear your thought, all help is greatly appreciated
Thanks again,
Cheers

The bands you listed (Which are awesome!) primarily use passive Pickups, so I would say go for the So Cal

Do you guys know if the So-cal has a floating FR or one that only lowers the tones?

I think it's top-mounted (Not floating) but don't quote me on that.

Crap, I needed it to be a floating... oh well

Floating are a bit harder to set up I believe. If it matters that much, have a Luthier recess it for you.

go for the so-cal, it's MIJ

fwiw those trems are floating, but they're not recessed. That means you can get a semitone, maybe a tone if you're lucky, of up-pull, but you can't get the massive up-pull you can get on recessed floyds.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
