i don't play that stuff religiously, but do have fun with it. i looked at the guitars you mentioned above, but one look at the price tag made my mind up pretty quick! i don't care how 'super' of a strat it is, it's not worth that much to make or set-up, imho. i have a newer ibanez prestige that i play (my only trem guitar) when in need to get 'it' out of my system.

I play an original Ibanez RG550 for that stuff. Suhr's are just Ibanez rip-offs....Suhr even uses the Ibanez all-access neck joint on their bolt-ons. The f*cking price is the laughable part. Save your money...no bolt-on guitar is worth over $2,000.00. None.

Some of the best guitars I've ever touched were bolt-ons.

Go play a Blackdroid Hufschmid bolt-on and come back and say the same thing. wink

Oh- I like bolt-ons...just not $2,000.00+ bolt-ons.
I've played several PRS,Andersons,Suhrs,etc. over the years. None of the aforementioned guitars were better (in any way) than an $800.00 Ibanez Prestige. I haven't played every bolt-on solidbody guitar in existence though (I.e.- Blackdroid Hufschmidt.) It all boils down to what the individual player thinks makes "a good guitar." I don't care where a guitar is made and don't give a rat's ass about spalt-top koa guitars with abalone monkey wizards inlayed on the fretboard made by a one-armed man in New Jersey. Many guitarists are duped into buying super high-priced products...."magic" 9V overdrive pedals that cost $300.00, guitars that cost $3,000.00 and amps that cost $5,000.00. It's a huge scam marketed at gullible 40-year-old guys with a surplus of disposable income and little common sense and/or real playing ability.
