  • Almost your ideal guitar..but for one or two things

    name the one guitar that you would definitely buy if the manufacture just made 1 or 2 changes to it.



    For me - Ibanez S540: make it a hardtail and use ebony for the fretboard



    (I'd also consider more strats if they made them hardtails & contoured the heels)

    I find Strats super comfy to play and work with. But I prefer fixed bridges and humbuckers. If the standard Strat had a fixed bridge and humbuckers I'd probably have more strats.



    The SG I find just about perfect in every way except for the minor issue (at least with mine, Epi G400) that the neck joint seems a bit unstable to the point where it detunes a touch if too much pressure is applied. Also wish SGs/G400s had a wider variety of *stock* color options. I know they do limited edition runs and such but the standard seems to be that you look at a store/site's Les Paul section and find 30 different finishes and options, then look at SGs and find like, 5 or 6.



    (And I'm talking about basic, midrange or lower "standard" models, not the high-end custom/sig/ltd type stuff.)

        Trussart Steel Deville chrome body.....you see every fingerprint and it's cold in the winter months.

        BTW, it's a very cool axe.

        The Trussart on the right....

            The ESP KH-DC gets big points from me with its 25.5" scale and three-knob configuration, but it desperately needs chrome (or nickel) hardware and block or trapezoidal inlays ...

                  Les pauls, only I want them to be tele shaped, maple board, and 2 single coils instead of toanless humbuckers.

                    I would like an Ibanez AF85 with a 1 7/8" neck.

                      My 'ol PRS Standard 22 feels and plays as well as, or better, than anything I've picked up in 3 decades of playing. It's all stock. I don't like the 5 way switch (too fussy for quick changes on the fly) or the neck pickup, which lacks that full sounding LP neck bucker sound. Fortunately, both of those issues can, and will, be addressed (eventually).

                        My 339 would be perfect, if only a jackpot-winning lottery ticket was stuffed in one of the f-holes.

                            I was about to say you can do all that yourself, but for the exception of the inlays. But, then I saw the binding and it would be odd to have mismatched hardware.

                              Ibanez AS93 if it had Super 58's instead of the ACH1 and ACH2 Pickups.
