    i've been playing my Ric 330 a lot and have decided that it is the perfect sized instrument. however, it needs humbuckers. if you've never played a Ric, it's somewhere between a Gibson 335 and 339. not too big, not too small. just right.

    so suggest some alternatives. no Gibson, Epiphone, or Fender please. and let's say in the $1000 - $2000 range.

    How bout a korean PRS SE semi? Well under $1k, even for a brand new one with upgraded electronics and pups.

    Maybe look for an older Ibanez AM series guitar, preferably one of the MIJ ones. There is currently an '82 AM 205 on fleabay that would fit the bill.

    You can get a PRS Hollowbody in that range.

    You can also add the Heritage Prospect to the list.
