Hi Everyone. I have two quick questions I was hoping this well-informed forum could help me out with...

1) What is the most versatile guitar in the 500-800 dollar price range? (If it helps, I don't want a trem, I'm not really interested in playing much metal, and I don't care about shape at all).

2) How do you guys get the most out of your trades? I'm looking to replace my RR3 (shameless plug, see my sig), and I'm thinking that would be the best way to go...

3) (because I can) ... does anyone have some info on Fernandes Guitars? Are all of them (Even the low end ones) made in Japan?

Thanks.

Fender HSS Strat. Why have 2 humbuckers, that's not very versitle compared to the Fender.

You can then give it a pickup change, and you'll have a banging guitar.

or an LP,SG style guitar or an HSS strat...they're even more versatile guitars than HH ones...
I don't know much about Fernandes guitars...I only know that Billi Joe Armstrong uses them.

How is the upper fret access on the SE? Also, if you don't mind me asking, what kind of amp do you use?

I see. The only problem I have with the Fenders is that generally I don't like the necks. I have big hands (I'm about 6'2), and so my fingers always feel really squished together when I am playing chords and such. I can appreciate the versatility of the fat strat though...

Id say an Epi LP Custom. Apparently it has much better pickups and body wood than the Standard.

I've become enamored with the SG as of late...but I don't think I can afford a MIA model...d'oh.

Can't you play a Strat then? Hmm...

Tough call.

It's a cool looking guitar, but I've never been able to find one in stores...do you have any experience with it?

I'm not really sure...I don't really know a lot about neck radius and such...

I think it has the same pickups 'Alnico Classic Humbuckers'.

Maybe you could get one of them, and shove a P94 in the neck for single coilness, and replace the humbucker with a really nice one.

Then you'll have a versitile guitar.

EDIT: Maybe you should give a Strat another go aswell, the longer scale length should help with longer fingers aswell.

How is a P-94 different from a P-90?

I'm basing a lot of my complaints on a Squier (Affinity) Strat guitar...so I dunno if the scales (EDIT: and radii) are different between that and a MIM or a MIA...

the upper fret access is decent i have a little bit of trouble with hitting the high frets on the 6th string but thats just cuz i have smaller fingers

currently using a peavey transtube. However, I have played the guitar through other, higher quality tube amps and have so far never been disappointed by the tones i get from this guitar
