Well I recently got a Jackson and I love it ! But i would really like something with a faster neck and a whammmmmyyyyy. I was looking at anything from Dean Dimebag Razor Yellow ( Havnt played it but it got decent reviews and looks sweet ) and some various Fender strats. Yet I have always wanted a Schecter but have never known whats good and whats not ???? I want to try to stay away from the floyd rose because I have nightmares about breaking a string on one of those puppies. At the moment though im leaning towards a 500-750 $ strat. Any recomendations ? Kinda want some kool pickups.



Any thoughts of any guitars and ideas would be appreciated. Im just trying to get some brainstorming going laugh.gif biggrin.gif


thanks- John smile.gif

I look at www.musiciansfriend.com a lot to browse "dream" guitars. They have a peer or user review that seems to be pretty reliable. I have made purchases based on some of these reviews and have not been dissappointed.

My bet is your Jackson has a fast neck... but before you go on. Perhaps you should decide on the sound you want from a guitar. Humbuckers or Singelcoils.. i.e. fat or twang. HSH, HH, HSS, SSS pu's (S=Singlecoil, H=Humbucker).
i like my guitars to be HH and that's a good start because it narrows it down a bit. My next guitar could be a HSH but one single coil is more than enough.

Cool pickups and Strat... that's a contradiction.
Just kidding.. or not, it's my personal opinion only wink.gif Anyone who disagree can just slap me over my fingers rolleyes.gif

I have a Schecter Classic and I love it, although I am really just learning but to me it sounds great. i have also read quite a bit of positive about the Schecter Hellraiser. From everything I have read in these forums, every ear is different and it really is what you like best. good luck!

MikeM- Yeah my Jackson does have a fast neck and I was thinkin of humbucker pickups but to be honest I have no idea how to distinguish between different pickups. My view- If it sounds good and is fun to play at a reasonable price- BUY IT

Uncreator- I was checking out the ibanez rg series on musicans friend. I could be mistaken but I believe kris has one but i couldnt find the exact model on there. Ibanez does make fine guitars though.

MetalMan- I only look at musicans friend for guitars. PERIOD. And the good thing is we have a store here in johnson city called Guitar Center thats opening today and they own musicans friend biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Rock- Yeah ive always wanted a shecter- its hard to find alot without floyd rose though and I dont wanna deal with that. Otherwise id be getting a Hellraiser


Keep the suggestions flowing like wine tongue.gif - Johnnnnnnnnn
