I have decided that I am most comfortable playing on Double cutaway guitars for easy fret access down low.

I also have decided I prefer 24 fret guitars with fixed bridges.

Scale length is not as important to me, 25.5 or 24.75 is OK with me.

So, I ended up keeping:

Ibanez Prestige RGA121 (24 fret, 25.5 scale)
Fender Showmaster FMT HH (24 fret, 25.5 scale, has a simple set-up whammy bar also)
ESP LTD Viper 400 (24 fret, 24.75 scale)
Dean Vendetta XM (24 fret, 25.5 scale)
Gibson Les Paul Faded Special - (22 frets, 24.75 scale, but it was my only guitar that did not sell)

Sold were my:

ESP LTD EC-400 - 24 fret, single cutaway
Fender 60th Anniversary Edition Strat - 21 frets
Carlo Robelli 12 string acoustic
Carlo Robelli 6 string acoustic
House of Blues 6 string acoustic
Dean Edge 4 bass

I also sold my:
Marshall MG15CDR practice amp
Marshall MS-2 mini amp
Smokey mini-amp
Gorilla TC-35 practice amp
Marshall Bass amp
FIVE Digitech distortion pedals

I am really starting to figure out what I like and this is a good thing.
I am also kind of glad the Les Paul did not sell, I think I'll keep it.
$599 starting bid with a Gibson hardshell case and people did not go for it???
It is one of my best playing guitars, I guess I can deal with tougher fret access once in a while.

Are there any other guitars that you guys can think of that might fit the bill for me????

I also figured out that my Roland cubes can get me pretty much any sound I desire, from mild to wild distortion or nice cleans.
I am not big on effects, a simple Cry Baby wah is perfect when I want it.

Guitars are only my secondary hobby, first is cars, guitars are far less costly. smile.gif

Remember, you can't take it with you. Put a little away and spend the rest.
