I was a huge fan of the 80's era of metal music! If wifey would let me buy one of the guitars I lusted after back then I would grab a Charvel San Dimas, or that Jackson Randy Rhoads model.
Life was nice back then... I was cool (in my mind at least hahaa)!
I always wanted one of these
My last couple shredders had zero fret wear above the third fret. Cowboy chords. Must be the kid was shreddin' Mel Bay. G Chord: chong, chong, chong. C chord: chong, chong, chong. F add 9 chord: chong, chong, chong. "Take me back to the Paradise City... "
I have mine as well.
I had a killer Charvel in the late 80's and this Jackson I found earlier this year, has the closest neck to that Charvel I could find.
The Jackson is an early 90's model.
THIS GUY!OMG he and his band mates certainly do that thing, a scary level of playing.
I owned one of my favorites up until last year: Westone Corsair GT.
One i lusted after but never owned? Wasburn N4.
I like Tom Quayle's signature Ibanez - very classy
Not pointy but a shredder.... I wouldn't mind owning this Charvel Guthrie Govan Signature
I've wanted a lefty Carvin for years. I just bought this one.
I have feet in both pools; the family includes some nice Telecasters, which I acquired to come back around to my roots starting a few years back. They were joining a family which consists of a number of 'shredders,' largely Ibanez - Jems (including a mighty 777LNG which is #778 and a '90 Floral), RGs, Universe and RG 7-strings, my home-brew Eddie 'Franky' instruments, etc.
I like guitars =]
BC Rich 9 or 10 string
I most likely wouldn't shred even if I was good at it but I can appreciate high performance things. This Valley Arts Larry Carlton tele was a magazine cover story in the in the 70s. I never forgot it, I've yet see one up close and personnel.
As far as I'm concerned, this is the only real shredder guitar:
A blue PRS Torero.
I already have a red one. It wasn't on my radar but I got it in a trade.
Neck thru, Original Floyd, EMGs.
Shredders who know about these love them. And they're relatively affordable on the used market.
Someday I hope to have a blue one too.
Double-cutaway mahogany solidbody
Maple top with flame maple veneer
25.5" scale length
3-piece maple through-body neck
24-fret ebony fretboard
1-11/16" nut width
Neck-through joint with heavy, carved heel
Floyd Rose1000 tremolo bridge
PRS designed tuners
EMG-81 active humbucking bridge pickup
EMG-85 active humbucking neck pickup
Volume and Tone controls
3-way toggle selector
Includes gig bag
Ps. Plus one on the Gambale Ibanez. I wanted one of those when they first came out, back in the early 80s... But they were $1200 back then!
Peter Frampton has a middle humbucker...
Near as I can tell a Gambale is an Ibanez "S" with a paint job.
I parted my S470. I got it dirt cheap to begin with. It had a Dimarzio X2N in the bridge position. I covered most of what I paid for the guitar when I sold the pickup. I always wanted an X2N but I was unwilling to pay retail. Got one, found out it was exactly what I didn't want.
I hope I still have that S470 neck. It had crazy flame, like Musickraft flame.
I'm good without another one.
I owned a few shredders, in the past year even, and ended up selling them or giving them away.
All of them Ibanez.
Pointy as all get out.
But ultimately, not for me.
I have kept one though, and I must say, I really like it a lot.
Though it's not that pointy.
It's the 2008 Ibanez SA120, which I rescued from a nearby pawn shop.
Dusty, dirty, grungy, and in bad need of love.
I have restored it to pristine beauty, and it sounds really nice.
Plays good too, and stays in tune.
Here's a stock photo of it.
I have hallway carpets drying, so I don't want to go back to the music room to snap a fresh photo.
Damn, I've never been into PRSs' looks, but that one's nice.
