I'm guessing you mean hardtail? probably predictive text or whatever to blame

Do you want new or are you ok with used?

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.

I'm drawing blanks. This is the only thing I can think of with a hardtail, humbuckers, and maple neck (with the gloss black finish).

It's a "mehhh" guitar to me. Schecter could improve this series soooo much.

Yeah, hard tail haha.

Preferably new, but not essential.

Yeah, that's a good start. You're right they could do so much more with the pt's

What he really wants is a John5 Tele but doesn't know it yet.

Maybe keep an eye on the ibanezes. the yen is weakening currently and there are a couple of prestige models with hardtail bridges (the s models). if you're lucky they might drop a bit in price.

£750 is a bit of a weird price point at the moment, it's enough that (IMO) you should really be aiming to get something which is "pro quality" rather than intermediate, but at the same time to get that you might need to be sort of easy on the exact spec you want (be willing to jump on a good deal, I mean)- but whether it's worth getting an objectively better guitar if it doesn't have the spec you want is debatable at the same time.

Godin Redline 2 ? http://www.godinguitars.com/godinredlineIIp.htm.

I own one. Great but a bit small. It's made in Canada and sells for about 850 USD. You can't go wrong with this.

The Redline HB also fits the description:

You won't find a nicer guitar, in my opinion, than a PRS SE and there are a few of them with maple necks, like the PRS SE Tremonti Custom but it has a PRS tremolo - a very good tremolo by the way.

There are many PRS SE hard tail guitars, like the Singlecuts, regular SE Tremonti (inexpensive too), 245's, etc.

These guitars have the best build quality and playability and design quality of any guitar costing anywhere near the same price. They are probably worth at least two to three times what you pay for them compared to the competition.

I'd seriously check them out, even if they are not on your radar at the moment. The farther you look into them the more it will be noticeable how awesome they are. They have class and a feel and playability that just is not found in their price range. They sound great stock too.

Good luck. Let us know what you get.

Yeah. I agree that the PRS SE Marty Friedman would be a great guitar to have. It would be difficult to buy another brand guitar this nice at these prices.
