honestly if you're playing hi-gain rock, you're not going to miss anything "warm" sounding. In fact, you're not going to play much at all that isn't heavier sounding. That all said, unless you're playing blues or country exclusively, you're not going to miss out on the active tone. A fender is a bad idea unless you are considering swapping out pickups already. Why not just get the guitar you want with the pickups you're considering?

Sorry for digging up old posts but i thought it would be pointless making a new topic. So thanks for all the replies i've had a look at some of the guitars you gave me a link to look at. The thing is most of the them have active pickups and after looking into it i'm not so sure that i'd want active pickups. Not because its really meant for high gain but i don't think i'd want to rely on batteries. Just sort of want to plug in and go really whenever. So i have a few ideas at the moment. First is this one

Seems ok specs are alright the only thing is i'm not sure which seymour duncan pickups it has. But it could be worth trying out. Also this one

http://www.thomann.de/gb/jackson_dk2_tbk_dinky_upgrade.htm

Once again another jackson and the same thing applies to the last one. However i heard they're not regular size guitars dinkys? Could be worth trying out though. And they're both in my price range.

There is another one i may try out as well. I was also thinking of maybe doing what someone said earlier that is getting a cheaper guitar and replacing the pickups. The thing is i've never done that before so would be a bit risky and also if it's a cheap guitar isn't it likely the wood and how it's made isn't going to be that good either? Anyway let me know what you guys think. Cheers.
