Just wondering if i could get some peoples opinions, Im an intermediate guitarist and love to (attempt) play loads and loads of Dream Theatre licks. The first guitar i ever owned was an old Ibanez from the 90's, unfortunately its just about near its death. Id like to expand buy a new guitar that could not just work specifically for John Petrucci's solo's but as an all rounder for everyday playing, Im inspired by any wood fish guitars but any sort im open too. Any opinions of good guitars that i could buy that are no more than $1500 would be amazing!

i would guess any of the good superstrat type guitars should work. $1500 should have you into ibanez prestige territory at least, it just depends on whether other manufacturers offer similar quality guitars for the same money and whether you actually like ibanezes...

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?
