Which guitar do you recommend me? - Just one


Hi everybody.At least i can buy a new axe and now the trouble is which one.My options are Jem 7vwh,js 1000,fender fat strat w/floyd rose (will put a Paf pro in the bridge) or ESP kh-2 or jeff haneman.Ive thought about a second hand one too.Two options:an old jem (91 or older),ive heard they are much better than now) or a JPM-1.
Id like to know your opinion,pros and the worst of each.Thank you all.

I have been looking into buying a new guitar too for a while, but then I bought a bass so funds got put back but after summer I'm a getting a cool guitar. Just don't know which one. But anyways, I f I were you I would throw out the Fender because I personally believe they are not worth what you pay for. I'm not familiar with the Jeff Haneman model but the Kirk Hammet model would also go. I don't think it has quite the versatility needed. However if you only play metal then that would be the guitar too buy. I would choose the Jem7vwh or js 1000. Also check around used for a Tom Anderson because they are really nice and are about the same price as a new jem.

If your considering the KH-2, you can get the ESP LTD deluxe M-1000 which is basically the same thing for alot less. Only reason why it's cheaper is cause it's made in Korea but who cares. Original Floyd, EMG81's, arrow inlays and it's NECK-THRU. The KH-2 is a bolt on.

Buy a guitar that doesn't need batteries, I'd say. Although a Jem7vwh is the best, get whatever you like most...

I consider the ESPs because Ive always thought they make great guitar with wrong pickups.Im sure a KH-2 or Hanneman (or M 1000-thanx) with a pair of PAF pro,super distortions or evolutions is a great choice.Do you agree?

If you want a KH-2 type guitar with different pickups, get an M style guitar. *You can even get custom built guitars with whatever pickups, etc, you want.

Ibanez is the only way to go here, be it the VWH or the JS.
I've never been impressed with their Korean models, and the others aren't that great either, in comparison with the Ibanezes.

And who gives 2 craps whether it's a bolt on or not? That is a totally tired debate, on whether it's better or not.

If it was really better to have a neckthru, then Satch, JP, and Vai would all be using it.

It's a chocolate vs. vanilla issue.

I prefer a bolt on neck,it gives a better sound in my opinion.Anyway,ill probably buy an ibanez.But the question is if new or used.Both js1000 and vwh are great guitars,but ive always heard that the quality of ibanez guitars is worse nowadays comparing to late eighties jems,js and the other ibanez option for me, the jpm.If are better axes,i prefer them although theyre used,but im not sure.
Ah!!Could anybody tell me which jem model does Steve Vai use in the "fool for your loving" video?(with whitesnake).Thanks again.

Fool For Your Lovin'= UV77MC. *

GivenToFly had good recommendations: *VWH, or look for a T.Anderson in good shape. *The Anderson's can get a little "baseball bat-ish" in the neck area, but they sound, look and feel pretty darn good. *ESP makes some nice stuff too, at a decent price.

Find something that's comfortable (in shape and price). *It you don't like how it feels, you won't pick it up as often.
