robot LP?

Huge waste of cash unless he's doing a lot of shows that require different tunings.


EDIT: You could always go with a '58 (Korina optional) Gibson Explorer with EMGs.

Personally I'd choose that or a B.C. Rich Assasin.

well, i'd prefer a Gibson Vegas Highroller, it's very rare. or maybe a Fender Telecaster American Standard, it's a pretty beautiful.
#10
what about that new gibson SG diablo?

the white on chrome looks amazing, and the red/gold isent bad either
just give me a fender and let me rip
#11
idk if this is really top of the line but i LOVE the sg standard
maybe u should put ur money into some kickass amp
#12
a custom made Carvin? or a custom ESP? for 4 grand you could get something really nicely custom made to your liking.

...lol? those are like 300 dollars.

nor are they any good


Get a PRS or a Suhr like somenoe else mentioned. But don't spend 4 grand on either of the two. that'd be ridiculous.
#14
This should really be in Electric Guitar.

For 4 grand I would probably get a custom made, if I'm paying that much it must be perfect, but 4 grand in my money is 8 grand in your money.
#15
get a squier strat, then break it one song into a show when you realise how crap it is
'08 Gretsch White Falcon
'98 Fender USA Deluxe Tele
'79 Greco Les Paul Standard
Airline Stratotone Crafter GAE8

A bunch of funky pedals

these are the three id suggest. with the fender ud still have a lot of money left. or you could just do what everyone else with 4 grand does and get a Les Paul Custom. but i think ud get bored of it real fast.

You should put some of the money towards an amp. Your profile says you have a Spider, so it would be silly to spend all that money on just a guitar.
