hey i am looking at getting new guitar. i currently have a epiphone standard les paul which i absolutly love. however i really want a guitar with a floyd rose for all those cool sound u can create with one ie dive bomb etc. i got to have 2 humbucker set up dont mine what the stock ones are because i can get better ones. the thing i love about my les paul is the neck. i feels and play so nicely that i would love a guitar that has a similar neck. this was the reason that i made this thread . i can easily find some guitar with these spec but will have no idea what they feel like. thanks for any help. i like in the uk and have a budget of £300-500. i play mainly rock/metal and Blues.
Epiphone makes a Les Paul with a Floyd on it. Check their website.
Look at the Prophecy series, there was a Goth Studio that had one, and there's another one that has the FR as well, I can't remember which.
The new Prophecy guitars are great and well worth it! I have tried all of them and bought one myself but not with a trem. I have enough guitars with trems.
My first electric guitar was a johnson hollowbody with an LP sort of neck on it, I recently bought a schecter C1 blackjack, and it is about a mm thinner and it didn't take any time to get adjusted to it at all.
i was going to say ibanez rg1570, but then i saw you wanted a LP-style neck... schecter maybe? i think they do some guitars with OFRs which have fatter necks.
awesome didnt realise about the epiphone with them. yes the scheter C-1 blackjack was one i looked at tad expensive that the probs.
Get something with a synchronized trem. I speak from experience that locking trems are overrated. As for the guitar, try a PRS SE Singlecut trem.

i dunno, i mean if you want to do crazy trem stunts, a locking trem probably isn't going to do it...
