Let's be honest: what shredder guitar would you really love to own one day?

    Which is ironic, since that model also was the main squeeze for the guy who taught the world "It ain't about how many notes you play, it's about the ones you DON'T play!"

    Albert King knew the virtue of restraint, get them with notes that hit them right between the eyes. Which is completely the opposite of Shredding.

    Not a shredder by a long margin but always liked these two guitars.

    Actually, although the Ibanez Gambale and the S-series come from the same family, there's one key difference and you can tell by looking up close at the bodies of both models.

    This is an S-series

    And THIS is a Gambale

    The neck is set in deeper and the pickups and Floyd are flush with the guitar's surface.

    I don’t plan on getting one but would enjoy having a Jackson Randy Rhoads sharkfin V.

    @Blazer beat me to it... See his post above!

    Yes. They are nice. The specs don't say anything about stainless steel frets, but the frets on my red one are like glass.

    MSRP on the Toreros was originally $1667 with a MAP of $1099, significantly more than the other guitars in the SE series. I'm into mine for about half that, which seems to be what they bring these days, only slightly more than a standard used SE.

    I hope to find a blue one someday when I've got a little extra money in my pocket. They are out there.

    Tricky!

    I gotta call Oscar and have my bionic eye re- calibrated. I missed that.

    :D

    When the engineer in me hears something I paid very little for is selling for substantial coin I start thinkin' about how to convert the cheap stuff to same configuration as the good stuff.

    I own five routers. And counting.

    :cool:

    The HM Strat always caught my eye for some reason. Floyd Rose (?) and a locking nut. No idea what I would do with one, or if I would ever play it.

    They also had one in hot pink that was pretty cool.

    I still own a decent herd of shredders. But always wanted the yellow or orange rg. All my others are dark “metal “ colors. This seems a little more lighthearted. Plays great!

    I can honestly say that I never coveted any of those shred guitars. the whole "hair metal" trend always seemed way too exclusive to include me.

    my idea of shred and a shred guitar was this:
