What would you consider the ideal prog metal/rock guitar?
I have been throwing around the idea of making my next guitar my prog guitar. All my other guitars are for extreme metal or mellow cleans.
I'm thinking something with a floyd, and some dimarzios. The bkps have been my preferance, but they just seem to have a little too much bite and not enough smoothness for a prog sound imo. As for wood, i'm torn, because i find basswood ibbys to be pretty ideal for that sound, but i dont like the look of basswood and i dont like painted guitars. Anyway, if you could have an ideal prog guitar, what would the specs be?
Basswood RG with Blazes.
