    I wish the whole slew of one Humbucker guitars didn't look so METAL.

    I prefer this setup in alot of ways, but not too keen on the models that have it.

    You can do a whole lot with one pickup, volume and tone.

    I agree...and they're way out of my price range.

    I have, and I know at least one other forum member has recently picked up a Charvel Journeyman. This is a made in Japan guitar with one hum and a strat style (not really but closer than pointy) headstock. Its such a great guitar, its too bad they only made them for a few years (2001 and 2002 I think). It does blues and rock so well and its such clean and simple set up. I does not look or feel like a metal guitar.

    The thing that sucks is that it's probably going to be either overpriced or hard to locate for it being kind of a "no frills guitar." IMO, I'd have to change out that burstbucker.

    Yep, being a "Joan Jett Signature" with only 400 units, it is going to be priced waaaaay higher than it would be worth if it wasn't a signature. And Gibson will still sell every last one of them.

    The Carvin Holdsworth models (H1, HF1) are still available in a 1 pickup configuration. You have to call and ask for it though...
