I have a Peavey Generation EXP with Piezo guitar. It is a mighty fine guitar for the money. You can find a review on the review board.

Used USA strats are very cool, but be carefull.. there are a lot of fakes and modified ones.

Blade Strats I tried in store several times and they are one fine guitars! Way better than a Mexican Strat and having a lot more tone versatility (also active pickups..)


I agree, and also if you are looking into a strat, remember they do not have humbuckers on them and you mentioned you like to play anything to do with rock, so humbuckers are probably the way to go there, you can get a good rock sound out of a strat though i'm just giving you advice.

Well, so far I think my first choice is a Schecter C-1 Artist Limited Edition.



This looks like quite the fine instrument. MusiciansFriend and Guitar Center list it at $899, but it's selling for $449 now! blink.gif Half off!?! Awesome!

USA Duncan (one JB and one '59) humbucking pickups
Grover Tuners
TonePros Tune-o-Matic Bridge
Thru-Body Tail

What do you guys think?


Go for it! I have a Hellraiser myself. You simply can't go wrong with a Schecter!

Guitars - Schecter C1-FR Hellraiser Black Cherry
Ibanez Iceman w/ DiMarzio Super Distortion in the Bridge and DiMarzio Humbucker from Hell in the Neck
Xaviere XV-700 Cherry Sunburst (Les Paul copy)
Lyon Def Leppard Special Union Jack (to go under construction soon - 1st thing to be removed will be the Def Lep logo on the headstock and then off to change the pickups etc. - plays pretty well for a Target special)
Washburn KC-40 (in pieces and about to be re-painted)
Yamaha Classical Acoustic
