some kind of Schecter might do the trick!
Schecters has thicker necks than Ibanez and most ESP models.....

Take a look at the Schecter Demon 6 FR and the Schecter Damien FR


Ibanez RG2228 Prestige
Schecter C7 Jeff Loomis FR (18volt mod)
Epiphone Gothic Explorer (with SD Blackouts)
Ibanez RG350M Yellow
Peavey C5 Tigerwood 5string bass

I would buy the C1 FR....

the floydrose one the Sunset doesnt seem to be a double looking trem so you would end up with a guitar that wouldn't stay properly in tune.... the C1 looks nice but I've personally never tried one.... I've only tried all the Hellraisers and the 006 elite

I think they're based out of New Hampshire. So, unless you live close to there, you're not gonna be able to play it before you buy it. They do let you return the guitar if you don't like it, but they won't refund the shipping cost.
I have an AL-3000, and I love it. It's a quality guitar. I would assume that the other Agile models are excellent quality as well. For the money, you can't beat it.

yes i have heard god things about them but i want to be POSITIVE that i like how it feels/plays.

the necks are comparable to like a thicker ibanez necks. not sure which necks b/c im not a very big ibanez fan, but if you play an ibanez youl have close the the same feel, but a much better sound imo.i would reccomend one even if you havnt played one. i never played mine before i got it and i love it

Well, you aren't really making it easy here. You're expectations are sort of ridiculous for the price you are paying.

A thick necked guitar with a FR is a bit hard to come by.

I would say Shecter has some really chunky necks for shredding on. You might wanna check them out.


Also maybe an ESP EX?
