in my earlier threads i have wrote about wanting to buy a squire guitar, but now i've changed my mind. i am gonna buy a guitar on musicians friend that i can pay in by the month (yes i know about the fees, but its the best i can do for now, and it sure beats renting!). Im looking for something that is easy to play, has a gainy sound, has at least a humbucker in bridge position, has tremolo ability (non floating, but a floyd rose if possible), has good looks, 22 frets, and preferably a bolt on neck and maple fretboard (the last two things listed arent necessary, but i would prefer them, oh, yeah and if it has a bound fretboard i would prefer it to be rosewood). finally, it has too be around the 400-700 range. for more details on the sound, i want it to have a warmish sound (im not very picky), and for looks i would prefer it not to be too radical looking (if it has most of what im asking then i'll allow it) It must be something that would be on musicians friend.com. oh yeah if at all possible it needs to be lightweight. send info and if you can a picture. thank you!

...

he never actually used one.

he died before the actual RR series came out.

i think he used a prototype. its actually technically not a signature cos of it.

jackson or laguna are the best for all the features yer lookin for, but for a warmer sound check out the new epiphone prophecy line theres some pretty cool guitars in there i was really surprised

actually i was going to make a thread later on what amp i should get with the guitar i chose. but right now im still playing on the same cheap piece of $#!? that i have been using since i began. A first act variable gain control thing (which is actually a very good begginer amp because it has a gain and middle control unlike most amps for begginers, but its noisier than heck!) that i am gonna replace later with a different one.

..... You do realize that no matter what guitar you have, it is still gonna sound bad because of that amp, right? Everyone will suggest you to buy a new amp instead. Including me.

A new amp will bring a whole new world to your sound! If you want a "gainy" sound, an amp will fix that, not a guitar.

As for guitar, check this bad boy out...

For the price of that, he could get a Jackson with EMG 81/85 with 24 frets.

um, the DXMG has EMG HZ's... and its floyd is recessed. I think the TS said he didn't want a recessed floyd.

Once you've tried a Jackson, every other Guitar seems redundant.
The necks far more playable than an ESP.

The only thing that will make you put down a Jackson is a High-end Caparison or a Vigier.

Like I've recommended to many people before, with your budget, GET a KE3, ask anyone on the forums who owns one, they'll sing it's praises.

yeah but a new guitar, better guitar will help me play better (ive been playing on begginer guitars for the whole time ive been playing, which is one and a half years, and i have totally grown out of it), and if youve read some of my earlier threads, i have said that playability trumps sound in my book. and plus, i could buy a new amp later. i dont think i'll have a functional band, or have the skills, to be able to play any gigs other than talent shows for at least another year. please, ppl, its my choice, and if you think im wasting money, please keep it to yourselve. i wouldnt yell at you for buying anything!

Do yourself a huge favor and buy an amp first. Guitars are exciting, yeah, but if you're serious about the sound, you want an amp.

im more concerned about the guitar. i said before im not very concerned on sound yet, and im not gonna probably gig in any clubs or venues for another year or two. I just need to get a working guitar that can be used for gigging, that sounds better than a beginner guitar, and that more importantly feels better than a beginner. I would buy an amp, but i barely can make the 20 bucks per month on the guitar! If i cant afford that, then i doubt i will be able to afford the guitar. and ive said before, its my decision. now you get the smiley of shame!
