This thread should be directed to those of you who is looking for your second guitar. Or those rich bastards who has tonnes of money to splash.

Anyway. I made a poll. So it is easier to see which one is the favourate. (Don't say things like you can't compare one guitar to another. This is just to give people a general idea.)

Hmm, i wish you could choose more than one option

My vote :
Ibanez RG1570 if for a trem
Washburn x50pro for one without.


agreed, if you aren't. gordon smith. godin, MIJ tokais (some might just sneak in under budget) and blade would also be great candidates in that price range.

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.

OK...

Edwards, I've only tried two- mine (LP standard), and a LP junior doublecut clone... I think the general consensus is that the lacquer taste series models (or even better, the signature, relic series, though they're a bit more cash) have the vintage mojo, so they're the ones to go for. Though it must be said, a few models aren't available in LTS, and I'd suspect (though I'm not sure) they're still worth it, if you must have *that* particular model.

Gordon Smith, i've tried several, they all were pretty nice, but obviously the cheaper the better. Major problem with GS is, if you stick with the basic model, they're great value, but if you try to customise them, the price quickly escalates. If you can make do with only a bridge pickup, and don't need things like paint or bridge you can intonate (seriously), you can get one for under £400, which is awesome for a hand-built made-in-England guitar. If you need two pickups and paint, you're probably talking more like £550- £600 (or even more), depending on model. Still good value, say for their gypsy or sg, but not just as good value.

MIJ tokais... i've tried some random models. Basically from what I've tried, I'd prefer edwards rather than the £400-£600 MIJ tokais, but the more expensive tokais (around £1000) are nicer than edwards. those are twice as much, though.

Blade, i've tried the £350 blade tele and strat. They're nice if you want a strat or tele with a little more versatility (they have an in-built preamp, so you have a wider range of tones- you can also bypass this and have basically a stock strat/tele). I'd prefer either of these to an MIM, and they're a similar price. Only problem is the tele isn't available with a maple board (if that's something you want) until you hit the £600 ones.

Godin... I think i've only tried the HSH one... it seemed pretty nice, for around £300. Versatile, pickups probably could do with swapping, though. There are several other godins under £500, probably worth a try too, if at all possible.

All in my opinion, and based on the models I've tried. Of course it's possible I tried an inordinately good (or bad) example of any of those. Also these are based on UK pricing (or in the case of edwards, japanese... ), I know ireland is a rip-off for gear...

I'd take a Minarik Inferno over any of those fixed bridge, humbuckered guitars.

Have you heard the resonance and frequency response on those things? Holy crap.

^ yeah, GS don't charge extra for left-handers, which is cool.

It's true.

Guess what band I'm seeing both nights following my birthday?

For under £500, my money goes on an Epi LP Custom + upgrade it a touch, a Fender standard Strat + upgrades, or a mid-range Kramer. Not much else worth buying under £500.
#19
I think the Epiphone LP Custom would be one of the last things I'd buy in that price range (unless it was one of those crazy Japanese ones?).

To each their own .
