Hi all, I'm new here. I've got a fetish for pointy head stocks and that's kind of led me to this forum.
When I was a kid I fell in love with the black Kramer Nightswan Al Pitrelli played on Alice Coopers Trash tour and I've always kept my eye out for a decent original one. However, I've accepted that I'm probably not going to find a decent (original) one in my price range in the UK so I've shifted my focus to other super strats.
I was looking at getting a new Jackson Pro series SL2 but after reading a load of threads here I'm starting to think that a used guitar would probably get me a lot more for my money. I see that older Ibanez's are held in high regard.
I'm looking for a neck-thu construction with a floyd rose and Seymour Duncan or Di Marzio pickups. At the moment my price range is about £500-700 (roughly $700-1000 for my American brethren). This could go up a bit depending on how long it takes to settle on something (I'm hoping this post will kick off some serious research for me, I'm a bit of a noob still when it comes to what's available), haven't bought a guitar for 10 years, I'm long over due some new gear!
FRAT version: Need a super strat for around £700, any suggestions?
I'll let the more experienced folks guide you in your search.
