Well, your guitar now is the Fender Starcaster, which isn't that good. So a good normal guitar is necessary.

However, doublenecks are cool and they have their certain something about them.

The Epi G-1275 Custom is the one I've played, and it is GREAT! That + The Epi Explorer series are the ones I find to be the most consistently great quality Epi's there are.


Now, the G-1275/LP Vintage Mahog are about 750, so I assume that's your budget? In which case, I'd say go with an Agile AL2500 and the Valkyire Doubleneck.

I have both, and overall the Gibson is better. I threw in a Duncan JB in the bridge and a Pearly Gates in the neck however. But I've played mine up against an LP standard, and it honestly sounded better, and had pretty much the same playability.

The doubleneck has a pretty mellow sound to it, and it sounds real nice for some blues stuff and lower gain rock. However, if you want to play lead on it, you might have some trouble since the body really limits the high fret access.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..
