So I've been playing for about 3 years now. I currently have my "Little" Martin acoustic (Which I am madly in love with) and an Ibanez S520EX (metal/shreddy stuff). I'm rather quickly moving away from metal and into..

A. Bluesy (not necessarily slow) SRV style stuff
B. Acoustic finger picking (Ie. Tears In Heaven, Classical Gas)

Now, i'm looking to sell my Ibanez, it's in great condition, all set up, and I've only had it 4 months or so. How much do you think I could get for it? (Ebay, trade in, classifieds, whatever)

Also, I'm looking for a guitar that can do bluesy stuff well, BUT can also do harder rock as well. I've been thinking of a Fat strat, how would that fit?

Also (also), I've really been loving the sound of nylon-string acoustics. I've probably got about $200 to kill, any suggestions or should I just go Yard Sale-ing/Flea Marketing and hoping for a good find?

Thanks,
-Me.

i have no clue about acoustics. rofl.

for the electric, what's your amp currently? also, you could do worse than a fat strat for a blues guitar which can also get heavy.

Also, expect the strat fanboys association to come in here to say it's not a real strat if it has a humbucker in 5, 4, 3....

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.

if u want an SRV blues tone, a set of Texas Specials are in order. If u could get about $400 for the Ibanez, a set of those would be good. Id get a Strat, which can do anything with a good amp.With the Texas Specials, you would have a very close SRV tone.

Or if you are really lucky, you might find some old quality guitars.

I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

Do not get a fat strat, get the real thing

i got a fat strat... and it nails the blues, can get a good hard rock, and it gets decent metal... its very versatile

I liked the fat strat. That humbucker really does give you a lot more tonal options. Go for it.

So i'm almost positive i'll be getting a Fat Strat. I'm actually starting my job in like a week, so i'll probably just work for it instead of sellin my Ibanez (It's a *really* nice S, perfectly set up. I still play metal stuff a bit, anyway)

No suggestiong on the nylon? Should I post this in the acoustic forum? haha.
