That is just wrong!!
Red Charvel Superstrat with a Tone Zone.
Jackson Warrior. Already like the Jackson neck and the body looks killer. Probably in black?
Saw Kyle from Vitriol playing a few and I was sold... Tune the sucker down to drop B and go to town.
I like Charvel also. They seem to suit the pointy headstock and look small and thin in the neck to shred.
Not trying to be smart, elitist or anything, but I can’t ever remember wanting a pointy type guitar. In fact, I’ve always found them rather repulsive.
Living in New Zealand through the 80s, I was never that aware of the kind of music associated with pointy guitars. I don’t really recall it being all that popular.
Funnily enough, Def Leopard came up in conversation yesterday. While I know the name, I genuinely could not name a single member or song, nor recognise any of their music off YouTube. I guess they are one kind of pointy guitar music?
I had the first two Van Halen albums (& I didn’t know a single other person who did), but I was much more into Back in Black and preceding albums AC/DC and original Motörhead when it came to louder, more aggressive ‘rock’ music. And for other forms of loudness, I was more Hüsker Dü, Pixies, The Jesus and Mary Chain, etc.
I think when I was a teenager, I liked the idea of Strats because of Jimi Hendrix & Rory Gallagher. Later I liked the idea of an LP because of Jimmy Page. Later still I came to like the idea of Telecasters, mainly because I thought they sounded cool and were robust, but partly because I perceived them, rightly or wrongly, as anti-trendy.
Just the way it was.
Never wanted a shread guitar.
The closest thing to a shred guitar that I actually want is the Reverend Guitars Billy Corgan Space Turtle Pro model.
Not on my list.
Always loved the Kramer Jersey Star, I believe they've just reissued it as an import. I'm half thinking of picking one up, but I just got a white superstrat with a bridge humbucker and a Floyd so I don't know if it offers much that I don't already have. Plus, absolutely nobody needs a middle humbucker!
But the Yamaha SG-2000 came around in the early seventies when Shredding as in Post Eddie Van Halen didn't exist so it doesn't qualify as being a shredder.
Hey, I’m a Gen-Xer, and I’ve never wanted one. While some of my classmates were lusting after the latest from Ibanez and BC Rich, I was playing an American Standard tele.
Then, also during my teens, Slash reminded everyone that the Les is the granddaddy of shredder guitars.
So my answer would be that. A nice, vintage LP standard.
Man, there are some great guitar pixxx in this thread! I don’t think of myself as a shredder but apparently some of that era imprinted on me; just realized I have liked just about every post with an image in it.
Maybe I ought to go dig out my cousin’s Ibanez; it’s around here somewhere...
I have the only one I ever really wanted.
I felt goofy when I bought this but it sure is fun.
Not full on shredder as it retains that more classic shape. But I have always liked the Charvel strat style offerings. I have played a few of the import models and they were great. Satin neck and jumbo frets. Im not a floyd fan, so hardtail or 2 point trem is preferred. The first pic is the model I played and should have bought. Maybe someday....
There's one for sale in Pikeville NC. No connection with the seller, I just really liked the color when I saw the ad last night, and it stuck with me.
EDIT: I jumped the gun...not the same model... Sorry
Yes. Honeslty : none. Except if Wandrè guitars are considered shredder guitars..
But it's me, OK ?
Check out how thin the body is:
Any iteration of a Phil Collen Signature. Been a Def Leppard fan forever and absolutely love these.
Another Ibanez Destroyer would be fun.
I’m not a shredder, but I’ve dabbled in looking the part!
