    Something with Filtertrons. Different animal from the regular HB. If Gretsch doesn't do it for you, look at the Schecter Ultra III.

    I am trying to thin my herd, not very successfully. Just got a new LPJ stunning blue stain! Played it and had to get it. I’m weak.....

    I’m looking at a Reverend now with Revtrons. Could be a possibility.

    I had to scratch that FB itch too and did something pretty different. I put a set of Vintage Vibe FB pickups in an Eastman 335. I have a hard time explaining the sound but I like it!

    B&G Guitars Little Sister Crossroads should fit the budget, and be different from what is already in the lineup.

    Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Wildkat KOA w/Bigsby
    http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Archtop/Ltd-Ed-Wildkat-KOA.aspx

    Pictures don't do it justice. It is really a beautiful guitar, VERY well made (and yes, it's made in China). Mine is simply faultless. I set up, repair, refret, etc. my guitars - and for friends - and have a fairly good knowledge of guitars. Plays very well too, if you like P90 pickups.

    Not my style, a bit large and hollow-body, I don't like gold hardware, never thought of buying one and I don't even know how to use the Bigsby properly. But then I saw it in a shop, in real life... I love every single guitar I own, cheap or expensive, all shapes and sizes but, to me, this one is by far the most beautiful. She is no.20, now I'm looking for no.24. No, I don't have GAS problem and I'm not in denial! o_O

    Review:


    A bit harder to find but should be well within your budget, around $500.00.

    The Les Paul version is also very pretty:

    I played the Yamaha Revstar Series guitars and they're all very good. But, I expected a little bit more from Yamaha. Can't explain what though so test them out first, maybe you like them more than I did. On the other hand, the unassuming and arguably not very good looking Mike Stern Signature Pacifica (PAC1611MS) is an great player's guitar. Excellent quality, fantastic sound, properly made, but it is more expensive. Only after I played it, I understood why.

    Bluego1, I wish you good luck and hope you find what you're looking for.

    Those Ibanez AF55s are cool :)

    I have one with flatwounds on it that works really well behind a torch song singer I know.

    "That's the best electric guitar I've ever heard !" was her instant reaction.

    "A homeless persons guitar" was my favourite internet description of the tobacco flat finish.

    A great addition to the sonic choices in my small collection.

    Apologies to bluego1 for diverting the thread :)

    Yup. Played a show Sunday with a little dirt, and rode the volume control all night, it was a blast! Was picking up by the neck joint for different tones. Amazing! Amp was a Pro Jr. IV.

    One pickup makes you learn to pick in various places and use the controls for other tones.

    But if one P90 in a Jr isn't enough, you can always add a Firebird in the neck. Yummy
