    Are you looking for a solid body or a hollow body?
    I've picked up several of the 'made in Indonesia' Ibanez hollow bodies that play really really well for a a budget guitar.
    I've not plugged one in, but at a price of under $400, replacing pickups would not be the end of the world if it had to happen.

    Ron R. thanks for your response. I have no problem with Ibanez, they makes some very good guitars. I am looking for a guitar with humbuckers. It could be either solid or hollow. I've owned both in the past. A budget Gretsch is still in the mix as well. I have to make up my mind on pickups. I've owned a Gibson with a P-90, not sure I love them as much as some folks here, but it was fine.

    I've seen some nice looking LP type Dillions and they got me interested. A Gibson LP is just not in my budget these days.

    I have always been jonesing for a Moderne but at the time the only ones available were the eighties Gibson and Epiphones which were two rich for my blood. When I saw Dillion had a version I got one, it was $500 with a case. This was about ten years ago.

    It was a very good guitar, needed a setup but that's no big deal. My guitar tech convinced me to flip it because it has some wood filler a couple of places on the body and neck. I now wish I hadn't because it really was no big deal and like I said, it was a very good guitar.

    Like all Dillions the body wasn't exactly like the real thing, they changed the shape just enough to avoid a lawsuit from Gibson.
