Ehh... not too big on sigs... the inlays are nice though..

what do you guys think of this, with a pickup change?

He said Ebony fretboard...

TS: Check out Jackson, ESP, Schecter and Ibanez, make sure you go to a guitar store and try them out though, dont' just choose what we say.

Saying that, this ticks all your boxes.

They're good but you might want to replace the pickups replaced (or not, I heard some people actually like them though so YMMV)

Jackson SL3 ftw http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Jackson-SL3-Soloist-Electric-Guitar?sku=512237

EDIT: no ebony fretboard actually, but oh well its still worth it

the edge pros are a good trem by the way TS but i really can't stand ibanez necks, you may be different though so it would be worth trying it out.

It's a guitar that takes the basic strat design and maybe makes it a bit more pointy, more extreme cutaways for better upper fret access and more often than not has a humbucker in the bridge, if not the neck as well instead of your standard triple single coil configuration.

thanx man, i'm not a big fan of the schecters i've tried, but keep in mind the only guitar stor near me dosent carry schecters that cost more than about 500 dollars, and i'm lookin for a quality instrument.

anyone got any other suggestions?
#19
I'd consider trying out one of those Ibanez's with the licensed FR and there's probably some ESP that fits the specs.

Also that Schecter that was mentioned, that's prolly a really good guitar.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps

Plus its Longer in length than your average strat thanks to a Floyd Rose Trem unit, which means a bigger body for lesser loss in sustain + usually superstrats mostly come with 24 frets

My apologies, looks like the good guy dealers for Jackson raised their prices. Great guitars but dealing with Fender for warranty sucks ass cause they will fight you every step of the way on high end guitars.

Just look at the carvin custom shop. Right up your ally in both quality and price.

Agreed.
I never really felt comfortable when playing an Ibanez, no matter high-end it was.
The SL3 doesn't fit all your requirements, but they are damn nice guitars.

Is it just me or is the KH-602 and the JH-600 pretty much the same guitar? lol I'm only stating this because someone recommended each of them.

That JH had a kahler trem, not an OFR

I THINK that is outdated. I'm pretty sure they all have Kahlers now. But for a Super-strat with those specs, I would just build one from parts. That is part of the allure of a true super-strat, to have some bastardized thing put together from parts

(They all don't need to be ugly though like mine )

I would definately look into ESP i was a long time Schecter guy. But im becoming quite fond of the products ESP puts out.

I know alot of people like Ibanez (and we all prefer diffrent things). But ive never picked one up that felt right to me. They feel cheap, i always feel like i am gonna break them in half. But you may love Ibanez... Just go try as many guitars as you can, and see which one begs you to buy it.
