I'm looking to start saving for a major buy. A higher end guitar. I've been looking at a few guitars, and alot of them are in a similar price range.

PRS Singlecut Trem
PRS CE Mahogany
PRS Singlecut Trem Modern Eage
Gibson Les Paul Classic
Gibson Les Paul Standard
Carvin Custom-made CT6M

All of them cost around $2,000 if im not mistaken, im not sure about the PRS though.

Versitility and feel is key. I want to be able to play a large range of genres and styles, and have it FEEL like it's a quality made guitar.

Or I could use the $2k and get both an American Strat and an Ibanez RG Prestige, but i'd rather get one AMAZING guitar.

Everything. Blues, Classic Rock, Metal, Hard Rock. My only main request is that it can play both blues and metal, you can kinda fill in the void if you have both extremes.

Get Either Les Paul because they are really great guitars

I'm a little iffy about the Carvin, i'd like to see how it'l look before I buy it, and i'm favoring a singlecut guitar over a DC, if Carvin had a singlecut i'd prob. buy it in a heartbeat.

Where could I actually find PRS's? Musiciansfriend only has a couple models, and im sure they prob. wont have the colors i'd be looking at.

Do Guitar Center or Sam Ash carry them?

PRS, the trem will give you some extra elements to play around with, and the PRS singlecuts look damn good.

Yeah im starting to learn toward the PRS. Can anyone give me a price on any of the models I posted? Namely the Singlecut Trem?
#19
Can't help ya there, sorry. Hit up GC tomorrow and see what they charge, a Custom 22 was gonna cost me roughly $2200, if that's any help.
#20
Damn, im still debating. I could save up forever and get a PRS Singlecut/Custom, or I could use that money and buy both an Ibanez Prestige AND an american strat :O

I really do just want one main everything axe. Should I save up the $2k for a PRS, or go cheaper?
#21
Maybe you should get a better amp instead...
It's true, this stuff I make up.

#22
If you're looking for bang for your buck, I'd keep away from the "money shouldn't be an issue" range of guitars. You could get similar quality for a much lower price point, you just won't get the expensive name etched on the headstock.
#23
I'm getting a better amp first, probably for my birthday in July. I'm gonna start saving for a future guitar though.

By the time i'll have the money for a godly guitar, i'll have a nice tube amp.

What does bang for the buck matter if they're all different.

They're all quite versitile. I'm looking for a singlecut guitar that plays Blues/Classic Rock/Metal
#26
i say take the 2 grand and split it between a new amp and a new guitar. if you bought a new guitar and played it through the vox, it wouldn't sound any much greater than your current ibanez since its a modeling amp.

I'm getting my new amp by July-August, then im gonna get a guitar once I save enough money for a very nice one.

By the time on going to buy a new guitar, i'm gonna have a new tube amp.

Ibanez J-Custom

Explain.

Is it a Custom shop? I never even knew they had one.
#30
dude, PRS all the way, I have a PRS SE santana, which is made in Korea, and it kicks the living s*&T out of my gibson, and Im sorry that PRS do charge a bit too much, but look at it this way, if you get the PRS, it will be around for ages!

Now that I really think about it, I could buy an Ibanez S Prestige and an Ibanez RG Prestige for the price of a PRS.

Anyone got any info on the J-Custom?
#32
If you're into high-end Ibanez, check out Ibanezrules.com, especially their used section:

http://www.ibanezrules.com/used.htm

Rich only deals in the good stuff and sets them up nicely before shipping them out.

As far as a singlecut goes, I'd check into a Burny or Edwards Japanese LP copy. Great guitars, and about 1/4th the price of a similar Gibson. You can find them on Ebay or:

http://orangeguitar.com/

http://www.guitarjapan.com/edwards/
PRS Dave Navarro signature/Burny RLC-70 - Sonuus Wahoo wah/filter - Vox ToneLabLE - Boss DD-5 - Zoom MS-50G - Modded Ampeg VT-22 100-watt tube head or Peavey VK100 100-watt tube head (6L6GC's in both) - Soldano 4X12 cab w/Eminence Legends.

why would you want EMG's when he said he wants versatility?

why would you use 4 instead of for?

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

i didn't even think what i said was that funny. but if anyone wants to put me in their sig i would be honored. and i would do buttsecks.

For a buck?

But I think that you should get the Les Paul Standard. It can do almost everything. =)
If you want to change pickups at least then it can do wonders. You get what you want from it. Man, I love LPs.
