    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.

    Hi.

    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.

    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...

    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

    Another Ibanez Destroyer would be fun.

    I’m not a shredder, but I’ve dabbled in looking the part!
