Made a thread about this about 15 minutes ago but realised that I really overcomplicated the query.

So basically, I want a guitar with east fret access all the way up the neck, think SG as opposed to Les Paul and you'll probably get the idea.

I play metal, rock, some shred and blues, so something that can cover all those would be a real gem. I'm looking to spend around £800

Cheers!
Funny words.

You could get yourself a nice ESP Standard Series for that much, I think.

Not to mention, maybe a lower end Jackson Soloist, if you could find it cheap. Fender American Deluxe Strat?

For that much money, there's a lot of stuff you could do. Mostly it all has good upper fret access.

well your lookin for something like a flying V shape. I dont think theres many guitars out there with better upper fret access then those body shape guitars. If you dont like that sort of shape id say maybe go for a prestige model from the RG ibanez series, lots of access there.

hope this helps

There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

I probably would go for a strat but they're not really suitable for the type of music I'd be wanting to play.


How much different are Jackons Soloists from Jackosn Dinkys? Because I played a DK2 not too long ago and I was frightfully disappointed.
Funny words.

Of course, if you want that much versatility with great fret access, then why not go for the SG you already mentioned?

You have one already, what is wrong with it?

ESP LTD EX-series.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

Gibson faded V? ; )

an SG model, V model guitars have nice fretboard acces, my friend has a BC Rich warlock and you can easilly get up pretty high without effort

If we did tune using the 5th fret on the G string it'd be a C. At the moment it goes G B which stands for George Bush. So obviously GB doesn't want you to C the truth! To the conspiracy cave!

The Iceman has ludicrous upper fret access, or you could just go for something like an RG.

If they aren't good enough for you then you've got no option other than to hunt down an Alvarez Scoop...

Ibanez and Yamaha have really wide cutaways that give you more access to the frets, without being butt-ugly like MOST Flying Vs

Yea, neck thrus are your best bet man. Check out some LTD/ESP, Ibanez or Jackson guitars.

I think you are confusing everyone by saying easy access to upper frets. Correct me if I am wrong, but arent you just looking for a guitar that you can play your music thats a double-cutaway??
