I'm looking to buy a new guitar, but too many to choose from online and don't have a guitar store nearby (also, you're all much more guitar savy than me).

Here are some specs wanted :
-I want a relatively versatile guitar,
-I like to play a variety : rock, blues, funk and punk/alternative
-I wanna guitar that has a fast neck (that you can shred on, so neck can't be too big and bulky/thick).
-Has at least one humbucker.
-has a whammy bar
-US$1500 or under

Now I know there's no perfect guitar, but if you can recommend me some guitar models that can fit most of the criteria that'll be really helpful.

Thanks for all your help.

*Ibanez RG1570 and swap the pups to a new one.
*ESP M-400, no need pup swap, the EMGs are good enough, alder.
*ESP MH-400, same as the M-400, cept its mahogany with quilted top.

Hey you look kind of like me.

Except for the sexy man goatee, and kickass shades. And sweet guitar.

I'm jealous.
well, ibanez makes a light guitar, if u want a heavier bass sound u might want to try a mahogany model.

but all in all, get the guitar that feels good to hold, and swap out the pups for ur preferred mellowness.

how does blues/funk sound on an Ibanez RG?

Sounds just fine, depends on ur pickup, if you use the IBZ DiMarzio made or INF stock in 'em, there's nothing special, just a normal tone but it works just fine. Also 80% is from ur amp.
