I'm looking for a new guitar for gigging (I'll be playing Rhythm mainly).
Thinking of something as straight forward as a single humbucker guitar with 1 volume knob (don't really care about the tone knob).
If possible I'd like something with a decent stock pickup - preferably an EMG81 or equivalent.
Don't need no floyd rose or anything. Just a simple fixed bridge.
Can anyone suggest any suitable guitars that meet this criteria?
I've had my eyes on this for a while because it fits the criteria perfectly:
It is, however, very hard to find locally. I'm also curious to know what other options are out there.
In terms of budget, I don't plan on spending too much on this guitar because I need something that can take some beating without feeling a serious loss. I'm hoping to spend less than $500 on it.
Thanks in advance!
