hey guys and gals, the guitar i have now is absolutely amazing, i love it, but it has drawbacks, like it only has 21 frets and it constantly goes out of tune (im getting that sorted out), and i like to do whammy bar stuff and its floating trem isnt up to it.

so i thought because ive recently got a job, i might be able to afford a nice new one. My price range is preferably under £1000 but i might be able to save about a hundred more if i find one thats perfect. i want a strat shaped guitar (loosely strat shaped, such as the RG's or ibanez S's, doesnt have to be exact strat) i want 2 humbuckers, a floyd rose of some sort, and im very biased towards dimarzios, sorry but ive tried out all other makes and i just love em the most (most of em), so if it has dimarzios on it then thats great, if not id like to have pickups i dont mind changing for the dimarzios in my other guitar. i play mainly satriani style stuff, with some blues and lots of heavy rock (Dream theater and alter bridge stuff).

This should probably be in the electric guitar forum... but I'll try to help anyway. What you just said sounds exactly like an Ibanez RG to me... maybe an S series. Look into the prestige series and try them out. Some of them are neck through and I'm sure some come with dimarzios

Ibanez RG/S Prestige series seems like a good bet.

Either a higher end one, or get something like a RG1570 and swap out the P/Us etc (thats my plan, when i get round to it/have some money...)

have you tried a PRS SE Custom with the whammy bar?

I think it is a great guitar and it stays in tune fairly well. Add locking tuners and it'll stay in tune with any kind of whammy bar abuse.

sounds good, ill check out the PRS.
I have had my eye on an Ibanez j custom, but i dont like the idea of spending so much money without trying it first..

EDIT: sorry if its the wrong forum, maybe i shoulda checked that...
