so here's the deal.


As the title suggests, i'm looking at getting a new guitar, i was thinking a hollow body such as an epiphone Casino or Sheraton(another choice to be made) with some P90s

OR

my other idea was to order one in a bucketload of pieces from warmoth, including a chambered strat body SSS and matching everything else.

My current guitar is an epiphone LP and i really want something that's different to this one. I dig the sounds of Hendrix, David Gilmour, MC5 but also various cool\fusion jazz and funk(where te casino comes in)

I'm kinda deterred from the strat idea because ...i donno i guess i think i'd be in over my head and that i'm not experienced enough(almost 4 years playing) to build my own custom guitar....

The warmoth would be pretty expensive I think. If you know how to solder though, it wouldn't be very hard to put the guitar together. It would probably be a pretty col project.

The hollowbody wouldn't do very well under gain, but I love the look- haven't really tried one extensively though.

why not just get a Fender Strat?

coz id i got a strat it would have to be rear-routed, coz i'd want to paint it. and i want it hollowbody\chambered whatever coz i love the tone of a hollowbody

how much gain are we talking here? coz i don't play much metal and even when i would, it would be through my LP.

and anyone played a chambered strat before?
