That's kind of a personal dilemma. If you prefer the Mexi Strat to you Tremonti SE, than get a Strat. You're the guy who's playing the guitar, so you might as well like it.

Although, it's always nice to have a backup, is there any possible way you could make do with your PRS and save up some cash for the Strat? Mexi Strats are not THAT expensive.

well i do i have a backup but it's a ****ty Westfield strat, but i really do miss the body style beucase i do alot of shred stuff and i find certain things very uncomfortable to do on a LP style body, plus i only bought the tremonti becuase i was in a tremonti stage.

Like I said before... it's your preference. Perhaps instead of a Mexi Strat though you could take a look at some Ibanez RGs or something like that. May be suited a little better for shred than the Fender.

I personally prefer the tone of the tremonti to mexi strats but it's your choice. If you want a guitar specifically for shred why not buy an ibanez like suggested above. The ibanez rg321mh is a really smooth playing guitar with a thin neck and good upper fret access. It's also a fixed bridge guitar so the tuning is really reliable, have a look

edit: just saw your post saying you don't want a floyd, the rg321mh should be perfect

the rg321mh has one without a floating bridge and theyre are some models without floating bridges so its just one you gotta find and like

Getting an Ibanez doesn't mean you're getting a floating bridge. I'm not realy knowledgable on Ibanez guitars because I don't really care for the body shapes of super-strat guitar styles, so these guys would probably be much more of a help.

If you're really against Ibanez though, maybe look at some Schecters?

And thank you, I do adore my Co&Ca.
