any guitars like this available:

24 frets
nice chunky neck not like wizard
h-s-h (doesnt matter what pickups)
wilkinson trem (that funky one thats supposed to be for players who are "burned out" on locking trems as warmoth puts it)

i'd love something like this, but i fear that the only way i could get it in a guitar is if i bought a custom built one
any suggestions folks would be welcomed thanx.

You want an Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette!!! This is absolutely what you want - it is everything you want and more! These guitars ROCK!!

thanx for the suggestion! i really want to get something with a good trem, one that will withstand some abuse, but not a locking one so i can tune differently now and again
that does look nice though

The trem on the Silhouette is as good as the trem on a PRS - they're the two best "standard" trems I've ever played... They absolutely blow the Wilkinson and Fender trems out of the water! the EB/MM trem is solid, heavy, and keeps tune perfectly. I repeat: a Silhouette meets all your stated requirements....

Go and speak to Patrick Eggle. They will custom build a Berlin legend with the Wilkinson locking trem (locks as a fixed bridge, but releases when you pull the arm up to use it - incredible) for the £2100 mark.

Your choice of woods, pickups etc and a beautiful guitar, if you hadn't guessed I have one at the moment, can PM you pics if you want.

All the best,

Jamie

Carvin has pretty thin necks, but I think the Holdsworth is thicker. He's always liked a round, thick neck, and I think with Carvin its a different neck than the other ones. You can probably get that one with a wilkinson. I don't know if you like the body or their sound and feel, but it could at least have the features you want.

Ya sure... like Wilkinson (now made by Gotoh - who also manufacture the Floyd used by EB/MM) bears comparison with a Kahler Pro or Lo Pro... You're probably right about the EB/MM trem tho' - I mean, I know it's good enough for that Petrucci fellow but it wouldn't suit you
