Well first of all, what kind of amp do you have? If you don't have a decent amp, then you should invest in one before you go off and blow all that money on a guitar.

At that price, there's no reason to by a standard guitar. You should be easily able to get a custom

I suggest shamray.

if he has 3000 bucks, Schecter isnt it. there good for 700-1000 budgets.

my vote goes to a PRS Custom 24.
Vigier makes some of the best guitars on the market. very innovative.
Les Pauls are always excellent.
and possibly a Carvin CT6M.

Ok well for guitars I'd recommend a Jackson RR1 or SL1, or as stated above, go find a custom shop to make you a guitar.

A Custom one. Or just a high end Gibson one.

get a new amp first. something all-tube. you should still have around $1500 for a guitar.

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.

New JEM.

Edit: I think thats 25k actually...Just ignore me.


JEM's are great guitars but they're not 25k, usually around 2k depending on the model.

Really though, you shouldn't spend $3000 on guitars based on other people's opinions, especially when we don't even know what amp you're using or what specific kinds of sounds you're looking to get.
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.

I would say to go for an amp. Its the amp that does most of the sound, and with that budget (which I wouldnt mind having) you could buy a high end tube amp, and an american strat.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.
