Hi all.

Well now that I'm in the market for guitars, I'm having trouble finding one that fits my specs: 25.5" scale, Mahogany, standard frets, fixed bridge, HH setup. What would be a good guitar to fit these specs? My budget is approximately $1000-$1500 if I need to push it. It will primarily be used to play heavier stuff but decent cleans would be nice.

^^If an LP had a 25.5 scale then it'd be perfect. Unfortunately, it doesn't so...

^The copies I've seen (Edwards, LTD) have 24.75 scales. Are there any others that have something closer to 25.5? I just like the wider fret spacing a lot...

^All of those appear to have jumbo frets. I'm looking for something with frets that aren't so bulky to facilitate easy slides.

Only solution I can think of for you is warmoth... sorry.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

If you want a thin neck try some of the high end ibanez rgs with wizard fast frets, I'm pretty sure there's a few without floyd roses, they're also REAL nice guitars.
What I want in my rig (Bold = gear I have):
Ibanez SZ-520QM
Vintage VECJ100BK
Epiphone Dot
Laney VC15
Boss GE7
Boss SD1
Zoom G2

^^Ugh... I was afraid of that. Okay, I'll be flexible on the scale length. How are the Edwards LPs with the JB/59 combo?

Hmm, sorry to suggest a common guitar, but the sg is good for what you want 24 3/4 inch scale, they have good cleans and enough bite for the heavier stuff and versatility for other genres, also they have good looks. I would also suggest a les paul but I personally prefer the sg because of the neck is thinner, the les paul is probaly better for regular acoustic users and has more versatility, but the sg is much better looking then the les paul in my opinion.
