So some people on here have been saying some wood makes pickups sound like crap. I was wondering which wood it was. How about agathis or alder?

From the majority of opinions on here, I've learned agathis sucks but alder is pretty good, as long as its a good quality. Its more the quality of the wood as opposed to the type that makes it good for a guitar. Can't give any opinions personally since I only own one guitar, but I really like how it sounds and its a Squier without any upgrades in an SP-10 amp....I'm weird..

Alder isn't a crap wood. 95% of Fender products are made with alder. Alder is also Warmoth's no. 1 selling body wood (2nd being swamp ash, which is one of the best tone woods, IMO).

ok, i was just seeing if there was anymore.

And if you get a guitar with a floyd rose, but don't use it ALL the time, it won't just go out of tune if you're not using it, will it?

^ No, but seeing as how your into Li, you''ll definately want one.

Go for high end Ibanez guitar with a upper end EDGE trem, or a guitar with an OFR.

Herman uses an S470, its only like 400 dolars and has an amazing ZR trem.

Yeah i've been wanting one forever, but I don't have that kind of money yet. But once I get a job, it's all mine! Thanks for the advice though.
