Advice on a new guitar


Recommended Posts

Hey guys!
I have been playing guitars for about 12-13 years but I'm not that good as I should be anyway: can't still manage tapping properly for instance, but I'm thinking about getting a new axe.
I had a special Stratocaster edition years ago and I hated it (it was called Fender Fat Strat Deluxe W/ Floyd Rose)
I've been listening to a lot of Buckethead stuff and I'd like to have something close to it.
On the new axe I'm thinking of, I'd need a killswitch, a full tremolo and a very good action.
What would you guys suggest?
I'm pretty sure I'd need someone to build the killswitch later on because as far as I know only the signature Buckethead comes with the killswitch(es).
Thank you in advance and sorry because my english is still rusty XD.

Not sure yet about the range price, I'd say up to 700 USD.
Nope, it doesn't have to be a Les Paul shaped, just a guitar with a good action, a full Whammy and I'll add a killswitch later on.

I'm afraid that Esp would be better for metal only perhaps?
I took a look on that Esp, it has a Floyd Rose bridge, I'd prefere a regular since I don't like Floyd Rose bridges since my last experience. =)

hmmm I would check on mid range ibanez guitars, 350dx and 450dx are both good versatile guitars. The trems seem to be hit and miss, I have an Ibanez JS 140 and the trem is decent on it and its very versatile. HSH or HH with coil tap is what I would recommend you look for. Sorry for late reply, best of luck to finding something.

I have quite a bunch of guitars right now and the lowest (and best) action is no doubt the




PRS 24 SE Mike Akerfeldt (Opeth) - extremely great guitar with a nice price too.

I hated Royal Republic prev. time. I hate it this time too.

UPD: OK. I hate every song. I guess I need to stop.
