Listen to Timo Tolkki's Avalon (he used to be the guitarist and main songwriter for Stratovarius until 200
. Back in the early Strato days, he played a floral JEM, then he switched to ESP, and his ESP was a custom MII. He then went through a custom luthier Siggy Braun for his Symfonia 7... But during live shows he used a prestige Ibby along with the S7.
Thats a career look at Tolkki, but the reason I say listen to Avalon is:
1. It's a very Tolkki take on the Metal opera subgenre
2. He uses a Master built 55 Fender Strat without a Scalloped neck. He shreds that thing like crazy (you can tell how much of an influence Yngwie was on him lol). He also downtunes his guitar half a step (that's just his preference).
