Preferrably jumbo frets... And a whammy bar... If none, please state. ANY IS FINE. looking for the cheapest! Thanks guys! (It's not for me, BTW, it's a gift for a beginner)

if you're intending to give it to a beginner, i suggest you stay away from floating bridges.

i would stick to a solid bridge, floating trems are a bitch to tune and get used to, i almost mucked up my ibanez within 48 hours of owning it trying to tune it into drop C with .009 gauge strings

i bought yesterday a yamaha drop 6 for 160 quid sterling, which was a real steal. Guitar store was having a sale on stuff they couldnt get rid of. And that had floyd rose double locking tuners, and 24 frets. They are built for drop tuning..I got mine as a cheap alternative to a seven string, and im not sure what they cost new, but at 160 quid its extremely sweet.

Anything with 24 frets and a trem is fine... He alreaady has a fixed and SEVEN ACOUSTICS so those are out of the question. Oh yeah, he's a beginner at ELECTRIC GUITAR.

Don't waste your money on a 24 fret guitar, just use the harmonic there for the 24th fret (play a harmonic where the fret would be) as for the 23rd fret, I've never come across a single song that uses it. If I ever do need it, I just do a controlled articficial harmonic on the 11th fret an octave higher (play the 11th fret, and put your other hand where the 23rd fret would be)

Go hardtail! Floating bridges are a pain, Ive had mine for a while and it still a pain in the ass to change strings.

No thanks. Yes, we both know what that is... thank you... The Timbre of a fretted note simply is so different... Besides, 24 fret guitars aren't really a waste. If you're playing Vivaldi's summer the 3rd movement like i do, no time to do harmonics in those fast minor scale runs, huh

I suppose so, but like I said, I have never found a piece of music need ing the 23rd fret, and the 24th harmonic works fine for me.

^Maybe he's thinking superstrats, which are different.
Threadstarter, a solid guitar would be an Ibanez RG321.

you think wrong.


He thinks right.

Google this shit:

Heavy Metal Strat.

Was made from the late 80s to early 90s. I have one in my basement right now.

You think wrong.

Also, no substitute can be made for a 24 fret guitar.

When you get to playing faster leads you simply can't just jump back and do a harmonic and get back to playing in the middle of the song. Its also helpful to have the 23rd etc frets when you're playing a part of a song in the incorrect tuning (ie its in Eb) but you still want it to be tonally correct so you play it lower a half (so the Eb would be played on the 23rd?)

What's the general opinion about the Washburn X-series? Is it any good? I mean, how's the feel of the neck?
