    selecting a new guitar

    Hello everyone,

    I've been playing close to 10 years, i currently have a jackson king V, my rig is a peavey 6505. If you can't tell already i used to play only metal, my new band is more progrock than anything else though and I'm looking to get a new guitar, something versatile that can go from blues, reggae, to heavy-ish. I want something with good sustain, but im a novice when it comes to gear I've had the same guitar 9 years and played a lot of gigs with it and its still a great guitar its almost always in perfect tune when i pull it out of the case. I'm thinking a prs or telemaster might be my best choice, just thought I'd ask for any pointers. My budget is around $1000, i play in half step down and drop c#, i want my jackson to be dedicated to drop and the new one for halfstep standard, I'm not a fan of floating bridges because I've always had to tune up or down in the middle of my sets. I do quite a bit of lead playing but i also am the singer of my band so i play a lot of rhythm too whilst singing. https://scrabblewordfinder.vip/ https://www.applock.ooo/ https://www.7zip.vip/


    Thank you!

    Nothing beats going to a guitar store and spending some time trying out different guitars. All the recommendations from us won't get you 1/10th as far as 45 minutes in a guitar store.

    I'm a fan of the Gibson Les Paul, so take that into account when listening to my suggestion.

    At your budget, you might try a nice, used Les Paul Studio. Those with the slim fast neck will probably be closer to what you're playing right now and for the money, they're a great machine.

    But I would also agree with Mike. There's nothing like laying your hands on a few guitars before deciding.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    Yup! I personally like Ibanez. Oh... and don't get a Gibson unless you're over 50 LOL.

    I'm 33 and some of my favorite guitars are my gibsons. 2 explorers, a flying v, a les Paul custom and another explorer on the way.

    If I were to give a recommendation however I'd probaby suggest the PRS SE Paul's Guitar it's extremely versatile for your needs. However it comes at 999.99 so you may have better options at a lower price, didn't realize this model would be so pricey compared to the other PRS SE models. Also I don't think it's in stores yet it was announced at NAMM this year.
