Now that my Ibanez is kitted out, I've been saving for a guitar that can compliment it well.

Price range is £1100,possibly up to £1300.

I'd like to play shreddy stuff like Vai, Satch, Becker etc to more metal stuff, like Dream Theater, Symphony X, Children of Bodom etc.
I do play other stuff too, it's just I've got other guitars that can do them well.

Preferences :
Mahogany body
Thin, unfinished neck
24 frets
String Through body or Hardtail

Preferably with good stock pickups, but not a big deal, I'll change them if they aren't so good.

Also, if you could give new amp suggestions for the same price range as well, that would be great.

I'll be taking a trip down to Denmark Street in a couple of weeks, so I'd rather get the guitar first while I'm down there, then order the amp when I get back.

Better than hooked on crack, I suppose. I'd rather know my kids are safe at home beating their meat than out in the world robbing old women for their crack fix.

Was just about to say "PGM301 mutha ****a!" but I realized you wanted a mahogany body.

Could check out something from the Ibanez RGA Prestige line or the new Musicman JP models? If you can afford it that is.

Awesome, just what I'm looking for!

I would probably throw in some BKP's if I do go for it.

ESP SV Standard mabye.

I'll look into them, body shape may be too extreme for me, but I'll try one and see how it goes.

I'm not really a fan of LP shaped guitars, just due to the upper fret access, but I'll try it anyway.

Great suggestions so far, any more?
And I was thinking about the JSX for the amp right from the start, my Uncle has one and it's fantastic.

EDIT: ^Well, I did say it was just a preference, I'm not dismissing anything just because it isn't mahogany bodied.
I already had that on my list of thing to test out anyway (the PGM)

Try it! It's like, such an epic guitar. The maple fretboard kicks so much ass (there are clearly not enough Ibanez guitars with maple fretboards nowadays) and it's such a versatile guitar. Perhaps one of the best guitars I've ever tried. GAS-tastic!

+1 to the RGA321, amazing guitar. Pity they don't make the RGA121 with the 'natural finish' anymore, I really liked the look of those.

How do you like this one?
(Invalid img)

It has a swamp ash body that's fairly thick, so you will still get the warm tones you'd associate with a mahogany axe. Great upper fret access, ebony fingerboard (don't know if you like those - I just LOVE them), only 22 frets though, Seymour Duncan pickups, Flame maple top.
The neck is unfinished, but thicker than on the Ibanez. I consider it very comfy though.
Another plus is that it is a rare sight, so if you like sticking out a little, you might consider it.

Specs are here:

Only problem is that I'm not sure how available it is. It costs more than the Ibanez (over 1000 pounds), but it's worth every penny. Available also in a seven string version and with different colours:

Ooft!

Very nice.
Although I do really like to try before I buy, but I could look into it, and Thomann do have a 30 day money back guarantee...

I don't have any experience with Framus, any more opinions on them?

And about the S5470, I'm not really looking for another guitar with a trem.

Just a free bump for you, ampwise are you looking for a combo or half stack? Any certain requirements you need for the amp?

I'd look into ENGL and Laney, they make great amps for decent value in UK.

Combo preferably, there's no way in hell I'll need a half stack.
Don't have the space for one either.

No requirements really, just so long as it'll cover what I want to play (favourite bands are on my profile).
