Carvin's make awesome guitars if you can't afford PRS' they are probably just as high in quality as any of the "name" brand.

I wish I could check out Carvin, but I can't access their site.

Sooo, I would say John Petrucci's signature Ernie Ball MusicMan models. Deep enough cutaway to access it properly, along with either six or seven strings, tremolo, and piezo pickups. Everything I could ever need.

I was thinking something like an RG1570. I hear some of the Ibanez RGs have terrible vibrato bars. Which ones?

Sometimes I wonder how a guy like Yngwie gets by with only 21 frets...

the cheaper ones with edge II or edge III bridges. RG1570 has original edge bridge which is great... also, the ZR bridge is supposed to be nice but i haven't tried it.

low end RG's are the one with the terrible trem. i have the S470 and the ZR is really great. only 22 frets though.

Probably an RR3 or King V, I have trouble reaching them on superstrats, and it's almost impossible on an LP or SG shape.

^^too bad RR3 has 22 frets i think. and it's bolt-on... but i wouldn't mind having one.
king V has 24 frets though...

The RG1570 doesnt have an edge . It has an edge pro and while being a decent bridge, is nowhere near the original edge IMO.

Jackson King V

I never really use the 23rd and 24th frets, but it feels wierd using a 22 fret neck afterwards.

Plus, it looks te business.

I want one. Two. A six and a seven, really.

You need to be way more specific, there are just too many variations of 24 fret guitars to pick one that is the best.

OK let me enumerate a few more ideas then:

a) Easy access to high frets
b) $1300 max
c) 3 pickups (HSH or SSS)

I'm actually kind of tempted by the Soloists, but damn, I think the headstocks and fret markings look ugly.

EDIT: So I just saw an RG350 -- they look pretty nice, but is there a higher end version with a better bridge? I really like the pickguard but I hate the fret markings

well it should sound different, too, because the 24th fret is where the neck pickup is supposed to go...so on 24 fret guitars, you sacrifice a little sound quality.

but yeah, jackson soloist or ibanez RG
