I have a Limited Edition Fender Stratocaster i'd sell you for cheap... Reason being is I just got my new gutar and really have no need for two guitars. I actually just upgraded it before I got my new guitar(upgrades are: Lock tuning, Graphite Bridge). I originally bought it for 500$, but if you don't mind a few dents then I guess i'd sell it for around 200 or 250$. I am afraid I can't throw in a case=( I can however give you a package of Ernie Ball strings. P.M if you want anymore information.

Hey man

I have both a MIM Strat, and an Epiphone. To make a long story short, I never play the strat.....

And I had a Jackson (aka shredder guitar, like the ibanez your wanting)...and I sold it and miss it...

I like the Epi LP best so far...but it was nice to play faster haha


I would have it narrowed down between those 2 guitars, so if you want tone or speed.....

I didnt mention it is limited edition? It was I think 3 sold per store in US. and I happen to have the money at the right time=P You wont be able to get any guitar that is like this unless u get it custom made which will be like atleast 1k.

I do have a paypal account so if your parent are hessitent about money issues It will be through paypal only. and if you dont like the guitar feel free to send back and ill refund you=) I've found nothing wrong with it and im sure if you like strats.; this is a very good quality one, you definately like this one.

I say go with a strat of some sort. I may be biased, lol, but a strat is a solid guitar. I find that strats equipped with a bridge humbucker cover a wide range of tones. I use my strat for both jazz and metal rock!

Look into the standard, mexican strats. I would recommend a humbucker with that strat, although!

Check this one out...
