Hi guys

I`m having GAS and want new guitar................as usual biggrin.gif

My next guitar will be for more techniqual music, like prog-metal, fusion (when I learn it properly), and basicly a lot of speedy stuff, you catch the drift wink.gif

I want a Floyd Royse trem on it (is Kahler btw the same?)
22 frets is okay, but 24 would ensure me being able to play all the notes i Want. Maybe jumbo frets as well?
Maple or Ebony neck (I`ve moved a bit away from rosewood lately)
a bridge pickup capable of both hard rock tones and some more metallish (Satriani, Petrucci, 80`s hard rock)
Regarding neck pup, I`m a little curious about a single coil, or stacked coil. Will be the same kind of music on that pup
No need for tone knobs, even though I don`t care if there is one
shape like a rounded superstrat alá Js1000, Jp6, Axis

Some guitars I`ve looked at: ESP / LTD Serpent 600, MM Axis, Laguna Le924, Carvin DC135

Budget: I`d be glad to find a used one a bit cheap, no need for a brand new one. Max price (becuase of 24 % in Norway sad.gif ) is 1000-1500 $

Any ideas for guitars I`ve not mentioned smile.gif ?

Edit: I`ve also been on the thought of customising my own Carvin, I actually get a quite nice one for around 1500$....but it`s still a bit much tongue.gif

A friend of mine has just bought a LAG Arkane Standard A200.
Very similar to an RG type of guitar. Here's the spec:-
# Body: Flamed Maple on Solid Basswood
# Neck: Hard Maple, Bolt-On with Rosewood Reinforcement Rail
# Trussrod: 2 Way LAG System
# Fingerboard: Rosewood
# Fingerboard Inlays: Acrylic Pearl
# Fret Size: Jumbo, Silver Nickel
# Fret Qty. 24
# Machine Head: LAG High Precision
# Pickup Qty. 3
# Pickup Type: EMG HZ set: SA (neck), S3 single (mid), TB1 (bridge)
# Tremolo: Floyd Rose Locking System (with Locking Nut)
# Controls: 1 x Vol, 1 x Tone (push-pull)
# Selector Switch: 5 Way
# Hardware Type: Black
# Finish Type: High Gloss

Well worth a look for the price!!!
You can get them for £350-£400!

Yeah, I expected a RG prestige would be one of the first to be suggested, but ....call it a cliché, but I want something a bit different. Or at least not a standard black RG, I have searched some for the old Petrucci Ibanez`s, even though they retails at >2000$

But I know frmo countless threads that they are great value for the money when buying used on ebay wink.gif

I dont really know.... but if You want to check out used guitars in Sweden (I think they are cheaper than in Norway???) they have a new site as a replacement for vendolin.se (as You might know) called just www.vend.se , there's also a lot of used guitars on www.diskant.se .

What is NOT cheaper than Norway laugh.gif (except Switzerland, I got the impression that they suffer the same prices on most stuff)

If I`m ordering, I still think I have to pay VAT? Driving is a bit to far, since I`m living on the west coast of Norway

No, I think it's an agreement between our countries regarding "general goods", eg. everything except booze, tobacco and cars (which people seems to be most interested in.. laugh.gif ) Anyway, if You buy from a private seller, it can be a gift or whatever when it arrives at the customs, then it's up to You.... And if it's a shop in Sweden, they surely know, just ask them!
