Hi to all, I've finally got internet again, exams have passed but I've come up with the following problem and would like to get help from someone if you can.
I've been playing guitar on an old starfire, which used to belong to my father, it has super sucky pickups, the strings are far away from the fretboard but I don't have a choice since my ibanez rg320ex fell sad.gif...I was trying to fix it but the pickup has a part that is broken, so I can't use it...
I'm going to start working this summer, and would like some suggestions for a guitar until 1000 euros, or even a suggestion to fix and still use the ibanez...

Thanks for reading

Get a Jackson, to me they are the nicest guitars in the world! laugh.gif I'm not sure how much 1000 euros is in America but another good guitar that I like and is cheaper is a Schecter.

Oh ok well then personally, and i know this first hand because I own one, Jackson Kellys are really good. Very clear sound at least for me. Ihear great things about the RR24's which I will probobly be getting if I dont buy a acoustic.

Peavey V Type is a great smooth guitar for power metal.

I might consider purchasing something out of the US at this point. With the Euro being such a strong currency right now, those thousand euros will translate to almost 1575 dollars. You should be able to find something for that price even with the shipping costs. Just an idea?

For Power Metal you can get yourself a nice Gibson, a les Paul type is played by lots of famous power metal guitarists like Jon Schaffer(Iced Earth) or our very own Marcus Siepen from Blind Guardian. for example a les Paul Studio (the one our instructor Gabriel Plays in all his lessons). It's a great guitar (quality fabrication, best wood, awesome pickups and very versitaile), it comes with a case and it costs around 1000 Euros (check Thomann.de).

http://www.thomann.de/de/gibson_les_paul_studio_black.htm

If you need an easier to play lead guitar then I would suggest an Ibanez rg 2550 or a Jackson Soloist ( both Strat-type guitars with 24 frets and a tremolo). Those guitars are played by Hammerfall for example.


--------------------


Gear:
- Jackson USA Select KV2 King V with EMG 81/85
- Gibson Les Paul Custom Arctic White with EMG 81/85
- Ibanez Rg 8527 J Custom 7-String with DiMarzio Evolution and Air Norton

- Peavey 6505+ head with Marshall 1960AV 4x12 cab
- Peavey Vypyr 30 Practice Amp
- Dunlop Crybaby From Hell, Maxon OD808, Boss TU-2, MXR CarbonCopy, ISP Decimator, MXR Custom Audio Electronics Booster

I thought about a Les Paul Menace, but I don't wanna be hasty so that's why I created the topic :>

As always, my advice is to go to as many instrument shops as you can, and play as many guitars as you can lay your hands on. And then, after trying them all, you will find out which one YOU liked most, this is the one to go for then.
