    Like in the $900 and less range. I'm looking for a second axe to play on that I can tune and detune without worrying about it so much... I've got a '72 Fender strat with a 24 fret neck and a Floyd Rose bridge so I can't whip it out of tune whenever I feel like it. My other guitar just isn't cutting it any more, it's one of those $200 Sammick specials that I started playing on :o Sam Ash has a Joe Satriani JS100 for about $750 on their website. It's only 22 frets... I don't know.

    I know there's some guitar gods on OT, someone advise me :)

    The Ibanez Artcore range are pretty awesome. Vintage look and fucking light, and some of them have a tuning peg that drops D with the flick of a switch. The only problem is the tone is kinda mellow, but throw a single coil on the neck pickup and you should be fine.

    Just based on how they sound, a Telecaster semi-hollow. Not sure if that's within your price range, but I'd go and play one, once you hear it, you'll be hooked the same way I was.

    what kind of music do you play?

    and do you play lead or rythm?

    If you're not that good, there no point on buying a 24 fret guitar, it's gonna be useless to you. I've been playing for 12 yrs, and I've never had the need to go beyound a 22.

    If memory serves me right, you can get a SG for about 900 bucks, but I think a US standard Strat is about 600.

    I have a Schecter Diamond Series C-1 Artist Limited Edition.

    Got it for $600 from Musician's Friend.

    It's one of the best guitars I've ever played on...
