Looking for a new guitar! Can you help me!?
Hi friends, I am looking for a new electric guitar, because my beginner guitar needs to be replaced!. Here are a few things that I am looking for:
-A Whammy Bar
-Capable from many thing from Classic Rock to Shredding
-A Maple fretboard
Please don't say Epiphone Les Paul or Fender Stratocaster, I have tried them, and I do not want either of them!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Dude, you are screwed!. There is NO guitar other than a stratocaster with those specs!. If you drop the whammy bar, you could get a Fender Telecaster!. Why do you need a maple fretboard, anyway!? If you settled for rosewood (Better than Maple, anyway) you could get about anything you like!. You could get any guitar you like, but with a rosewood fretboard, then take it to a luthier and have him put a maple fretboard on for you, but it would cost around $1000!. Look into a Kramar Focus!. Stratlike, but it's the only alternative I can think of!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
These are under your price range, but killer ESP/LTD guitars with licensed Floyd Rose tremolos, maple fretboard!. I bought 2 of these to fool around with a Whammy and also insisted on a maple fretboard!. I switched out the pickups with some Seymour Duncans ('59 in neck, JB SH-4 in bridge - killer tone!.!.!.)
They may be low cost, but they're not cheap!. Not to sound like a snob, but I usually play higher end Gibsons!. I wanted a maple fretboard guitar with a FR trem and have been very happy with these and the Seymour Duncans!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
only way you can solve this is by going to a guitar shop and playing alot of what they got!.!.!. get an idea of what you like then think about it then go back and buy one!.!.!. i dont know wether you were consideringt his but dont buy one onlie what ever you do! just play through some ones in the shop and ull know sooner or laterWww@QuestionHome@Com
