I will go for a second hand guitar, with vibrato.. And looks awesome/freaky


been hankering for a Jackson soloist (must be in eerie dess)




but then maybe an ESP



I am sick of Ibanez (have owned too many of them).. And owned a parker Fly but it was TOO light and bony


Anything else obscure or underdoggy? I have been out the guitar scene for a coupla years. My focus has been too narrow

this is a longshot, but if u can find a guitar called the fender showmaster, get it
its got great sound, great looks, great everything
unfortunately, it is highly underrated and consequently hard to find

Definately go for the jackson. I've got a jackson RR1, and it sounds better than other guitars that cost twice as much.

yeah thats a big pitfall unfortunately
and they dont even use a better tremolo they just use the old crap strat one damn
u could try 2 get someone to install a floating trem or get locking tuners and a better standard trem it also depends on how much u use the tremolo

oh yeah there was another super strat that had a floyd rose and 24 frets but ive only ever seen one(ebay) cuz they dont make them nemore
neone know how hard it is 2 get a floyd rose into a guitar that doesnt have one already?

I sold it to a friend. Got it off ebay for maybe 600 pounds... It was my dream guitar and i was quite upset that it felt like molesting a bony old goat.. INCREDIBLE trem and sound though, jesus

I have installed a floyd rose on a cheaper guitar, its not that hard if a trem already exists (just need to jig out a cavity) but it would probably look **** on a proper guitar

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that whilst the Fender Showmaster only has a synchronous trem, the SQUIER version, the Stagemaster *raises flame shield* has a floating trem:

It's got a basswood body, thru-neck, HSH pickups and 24 frets. Add in the locking trem and you have a Squier with a difference. And in GAK, they have one in clearance for £269:

In metallic gold. It's very different, and if you like Strats, then this could work well. It's a superstrat, so quality's got to be higher than standard Squiers. It's rare, and cheap, so you could upgrade the pickups with your change. Check it out!
