Really strange-I like some neck-thru guitars

Always been a bolt-on lover, but lately ive heard some neck-thrus i like very much. Last 4 BC rich ive heard were amazing (two beasts, a warlock and a v-shaped i dont know which model is). 1 beast and the V shaped with EMGs, the othe with Duncans and the Warlock with dimarzios. All of them deluxe or supremes.
Im a Ibanez-jackson-fender style fan so its rare i like Bc richs (although i think they made the best body shapes-theyre really beautiful) but they were all outstanding (specially the warlock and the v -shaped).
Whats up doc??????

If you like neck-thru then the obvious choice is an RGT3120 Prestige. They play like butta.

Don't worry, you'll come to your senses again

I have phases like that where I suddenly "want" something way out of character for me. There was one time when I was going to sell all my guitars and buy a Benedetto Manhatten. I'm going to get one one day, so I can grow old and still be cool

Thing is, if you fancy a through neck guitar and can afford it, go get one. If you pick up a Jackson Soloist off ebay you can more than likely resell it for what you bought for it if you decide it's not for you. I've seen some great deals on USA BC Richs on ebay too!!!

I was never that fond of neck thru's till I found my Jackson Soloist - I'd lucked into a great trade for a Custom Shop Dinky a few months before, so when I saw the Soloist I tried it out and ended up taking it home despite my many prejudices against them... I still think they sound a little thin when compare to a good bolt on or set neck, but my Jems don't play as well - it's impossible to get their action as low and buzz free as I can on the Soloist

still doesn't mean I prefer the Soloist - I will say that I'm rather fond of it, tho'

A bit about the Benedetto Manhatten can be found HERE. They're big bodied jazz guitars.

When I was after one it was before the deal Benedetto made with Guild/Fender to produce them under licence and it was going to set me back about 12000 I seem to recall.

I'm not even that good a jazz player, it just seemed like something I should have so that it would have aged nicely and be ready for me, when I was ready for it.
