What is your dream guitar that you'd love to have one day? Or maybe you've already got it, and if so what is it? For me, ever since my old guitar teacher played to me his PRS Custom i've wanted one, and i still want one now! The problem is, they're fair from cheap, ranging from around £1500 - £3000. Fortunatly the prices have gone down slightly on them, but i still have a long way to go. For no particular reason i've managed to save just under £800, so i won't be getting one anytime soon. Also i'm only on a part time job as i'm at college which doesn't help tongue.gif. Christmas is coming up which means i'll spend a bit, but on the upside i'll get money for christmas as well. I do want to buy a guitar next year, but i don't see it being a PRS custom for a while tongue.gif

My dream guitar is a JEM with EMG's, a hotrail, with locking tuners and a killswitch.


but if I can go wild, it would be a modeling guitar that doesn't require batteries, with a floyd and an LP structure. also, its made with left-over wood from noah's arc.

its the button that can be fitted into your guitar that kills the other guitar player you're dueling.....


No, it sends the signal to ground so the volume goes down to 0 for the duration that your finger is on the button. It can be used for dramatic effect, ala

Leo Kottke's signature guitar. Bjørn Berge also use it.



http://www.taylorguitars.com/Guitars/Acous...12-String/LKSM/

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Tay...itar?sku=517558


The price is not nice though, musiciansfriend.com says 2500$, but it will cost twice as much in Norway.
When I get rich I'll get one.

A custom Ibanez Guitar.

Flying V Body, nice and sharp. Custom paintjob by Luis Royo( Black body, with one of his paintings on on top), 7 strings, Edge Pro 7 Tremelo, Dave Mustaine Livewire pickup in the bridge, Dimarzio Evo for the neck. Black hardware.

I would also like an Ibanez Xiphos, same as above, but with a painting by Joseph Linsner on it, still a 7 string as well.

Where can you buy a killswitch? I searched it but didn't really get any results except for Killswitch Engage.

heres the kicker. theres only one guitar out there with a killswitch already installed and its this dinky little squier http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Squ...itch?sku=513752


you have to install a killswitch yourself. theres how to sites and videos everywhere.
