Alright i am going to the guitar store tomorrow or the day after (i was supposed to go today but again my ****ing work called on the last minute)

First of all my price range is 500-800$ (maybe I can stretch to 900, or so if it's amazing)

Things I am looking for

Thin/fast neck, solid body, humbuckers are prefered (Id be even happier with SD stock pups), no active pups, no V's, Warlock, etc..., I'd prefer for the body to be somewaht similar to a strat or LP

Just post whatever meats my description, I don't really care if it has 21, 22, or 24 frets...don't usually use anything past like 19 anyways.

thanks

EDIT : I'd prefer to buy new.

Schecter C-1s
used Jaguar or Jazzmaster
used SG


SG's have chunky necks i think.

I'm very interested in the C-1 classic, and +...but I can't find a dealer that has them in stock.

There's no point in getting a jag with buckers used cause they're only like 100$ less than they are new...I don't think I'll getting a jag cause i have a jagmaster already.

when you say thin/fast superstrat i automatically think ibanez/jackson, you should check some of those out. schecter necks are pretty thick.

I don't need anything rediculously thin, i really liked the thickness of the Mustang neck, that's pretty much perfect, only reason why I'm still not 100% sold on it is cause of it's single coils.

Not interested in active pups


Looks like a good price for a gibby, but trouble is don't they have thick necks?

I'll probably try one out when I go to the shop though.


Uhh, the DK2's arent active, you get SD JB/Jazz, or a JB and 2 singles. Not thinking of the DKMG's, just the regular DK2's.

if you get a model without a trem it'll have better sustain.

It's got a humbucker in the Bridge, feels great, sounds great, and looks awesome.

If I remember correctly, they run about $750

Jackson dinkys are good, esp ltd m series are perfect, ibanez s and rg series are good, prs are good. the esp and ibanez might have the fastest necks, with jackson next.

I assume you're playing just open strings, so not to scratch your frets.

feel. tone is more the job of your amp.

Feel for sure. As people have said, you get tone from your amp, and you can always change your pickups. As long as your wood is good, there's hope.

I recommend you try out the Ibanez S Series. I'd stay away from the RGs since the non-prestiges aren't too great (*cough* trems), and the prestiges are slightly out of your budget, but be sure to check out the S470DXQM.

Ahhh, okay cause i really like the way the LP's feel, but I really do prefer the brighter sound I have on my Jagmaster....maybe it's the SD designed pups?

trouble is I really love the LP look, so that's why I was thinking of going for something like the PRS SE (single cut)...because i've heard they're quite similar (in terms of sounding very bright) to a fender

Honestly, The Gibson SG special faded does NOT have a fat neck. Well mine doesn't anyway. I play great with nothing that stops me as I move along the fretboard.

I can sell you my for 620 =D...


Anyway, I'm just saying, if you're looking don't rule out the SG just because people say so. They play nice and I have people who have been playing 20 years or more come by, and look at it, play it for a bit and just walk away, speaking praise of the guitar.

It's not really a LP shape, but it's a pretty awesome guitar. Thin neck, stock SD's (very nice ones at that) and in your price range. Suitable for almost every style of music. I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for, but you should try it out none the less.

I was thinking about something from Ibanez, but I was told that most of their Users don't have good vibrato so they dont get good sustain.

Also, I forgot to mention I don't play/like metal so no need to post some of those guitars that are pretty much good for metal and that's about it.
