Recommend me a non-Ibanez guitar

Hello

I was looking for a non Ibanez guitar

I am looking for specifically

maple board, SD pickups, neck thru, FR bridge, 24 frets

I was wanting to get one of those Japanese ESP M-IIs but they are very hard to get for me and much more pricey because of tax and shipping

Regards
Wildchild

Re: Recommend me a non-Ibanez guitar

Thanks for the link but I am not really into the rounded edged bodies

I was looking at their seven strings and they look sweet but

I am looking for 6 stringer now

You know those guitars mathias eklundh uses

do they come with my prefered specs?

btw I was looking for a guitar for a metal/shred sound

Re: Recommend me a non-Ibanez guitar

What kind of price range are you talking about? I was about to recommend, a Jackson SL3 neckthru, but it has a rosewood fretboard.

Re: Recommend me a non-Ibanez guitar

best bet is carvin!

Re: Recommend me a non-Ibanez guitar

Sounds like you'll have to sacrifice either the neck-thru or the maple board. Sucks, but thats what it looks like unless you go the Carvin route.

Re: Recommend me a non-Ibanez guitar

It was just under $1300US shipped to my door as you see it w/case.. No idea how much to ship to EU. Carvin could help ya there.

As far as customizing. Everything you see I selected from normal Carvin options.

You mean Caparison, the only model with that specs are the TAT's.. but they got Ebony board.

... I dont think they offer any of they're guitars with Maple board.. only custom made for the endorsed artists.. like Tom and Henrik from "Evergrey", they got quite a few ones with maple boards!
