Heyo. Hope everyone had a good holiday. So, I was given $400 in guitar center gift certificates and now have to figure out what to get! I'm thinking about another guitar - currently I just have a custom telecaster I built for myself (Modeled after the 52 tele, with emg pickups and some other cool stuff). I probably need to go to the store and try some guitars out, but there are a few I'm already thinking about. I may add some $ to the gift to get something decent.

I saw that there is a Gibson Les Paul Studio that is only like $799 that got good reviews. I also have my eye on those PRS SE guitars. There is also the possibility of an SG, Ibanez, Fender, etc... I'd like something that could compliment the Telecaster. I'm into Rock of all variety and other various types of music. Thanks for any ideas!

I have been into coheed and cambria and also Killswitch lately. I also like a lot of other rock. Maybe I need a les paul AND a shred guitar!

try something with EMGs (i believe coheed and cambria use 85 and 81). epiphone has their new prophesy line out (les pauls, sgs and new strange looking explorers) with 24 frets, ebony fretboard, figured maple tops and your choice of emg 81 and 85 sets (black) or gibson dirty fingers (red). schecter has alot of good models (check out the c-1 hellraiser and classic). also try ibanez's ict700 and vbt700 (they both have dimarzio d-activators, which sound really good).

Ha! I have enough trouble commanding one guitar neck!! I wonder if anyone actually plays that thing. You'd have to workout a lot to be able to hold that thing up long enough to play a song on it :)

I have an LTD Viper 400 and I love it. Of course, I'm biased towards ESP guitars. :P But the neck is surprisingly fast for its thickness, it's comfortable, and it has amazing sustain with the 81/85 pickup combo.

If you can find ESPs, I'd check them out. Where do you live? There aren't many places that sell them here in Georgia.

Niccce. I'm on the East Coast and get get to a guitar center if need be. I'll have to see if they cary ESP.

What makes you biased towards ESP? The fact you already have one, or do your favorite musician's play em, etc...? I have to admit I haven't played many ESP's although my brother has an ESP explorer he got a long time ago which we put EMG's into. It's not a bad little guitar.

Well , both. I have one, and it was amazing when I got it, but I was influenced to get them because my favorite band (Atreyu, see avatar ;)) uses them, and so does Metallica, Rammstein, Children Of Bodom, and a lot of my favorite metal musicians.

The guitar center I am nearest to doesn't carry ESP. They could only sell the cheap copies, normally, and since it was a Japanese-based guitar company it was harder to get a hold of than most brands.
