I was wondering what production guitars would be on everyones wish list? I guess you could put custom and dream guitars in as well.


Since I like hard tails I wish for:

Caparison Angelus HGS + EMG
EBMM Y2D
Ibanez RG-3271
Washburn X-81 Face Eraser
Wayne mahogany Monster

I checked out the Dean ML USA model on line. They look pretty cool. I'll have to see if anyone around here sells them so I can try one out.

I had a LP Standard Heritage Cherry. It was nice, and heavy. The Burstbucker Pro pickups kicked a$$. I sold it to a guy in Texas. I put it up on e-bay during one of the .99 specials with a high reserve and someone snatched it up in ten minutes.

I have four RGs:
* RG-1521 black (upgraded pickups)
* RG-1521 white
* RG-421 black
* RGT42DXFX

I used to have a PGM-301WH. I sold it to a guy in New York. It was my introduction to Ibanez guitars. Afterwards I found some of the other hardtails mentioned above. They suite me better (rosewood).

I sold a black Jackson Y2KV to a guy in Munich, Germany. He paid alot for it. It was a great sounding guitar but too awkward for me. The case for it was HUGE.

The only acoustic I've ever owned was an HD-28. It was a S&D special from MF. I stole it from them since the only thing wrong with it was a crack in the case. I played cowboy chords on it so much the first couple of frets were pretty worn when I sold it to a Canadian. He fixed it all up. This was another .99 listing that went in fifteen minutes.

I also had a American Fat Strat Texas Special that I just plain wore out. It was my first electric. The frets were pretty bad and I didn't want to pay to fix so I traded it in.

I bought and Ibanez Destroyer for cheap but it was crap so I sold it.

I had a Caparison Horus Deep Sea for a short time but could not deal with the tremelo so I sold it.

Oh, I have a green MM Benji too. It is the best made guitar I've ever owned. Pure quality. If it had a rosewood board it would be number one. They are going for cheap now.

I haven't found any guitars that I've become really attached to. The RGs seem to be the only keepers.

Which RG hardtail do you prefer?
Not sure, as I have only played the RG321. I love the Wizard neck, but if I ever got a hardtail I think I'd want the Wizard 2 just to have something different. The RG321 has a Wizard 2. What's on the 421?

Waw! That's the one I really want! You just don't like trems or it was crappy bridge?
And what about the clean sounds? It's got everything I like, but I really love clean sounds and sound of neck pickups, so I am not shure if it's good for me (if it does other things than metal). And I don't think I will ever use the 27th fret, but the look of the guitar is amazing and the body is different (nicer :) than on Dellinger series, not mentioning the gorgeous headstock!

Wizard II as well. I have it, with a Tone Zone/Air Norton combo. Great guitar.

I wanted to get a guitar with a trem so I ordered the Horus from Ishibashi. I saw one ages ago but never found where to get one here. The guitar was amazing, the quality, everything. I just found myself fighting the trem. Maybe I just didn't give it enough time.

Actually I had the guitar for a couple of months when a rogue staple in the case scratched the back of the guitar. They replaced everything free of charge.

The tone was unique. It cleaned up well.

If I would have kept it I'd probably jack some EMGs in it.

Thanks mate! And what about the neck pickup? Wasn't it too edgy? I mean, it is too close to bridge, more like midle pickup. But Caparison said, it has special voicing to have sound like neck picup, so I am curious if it's truth.
