    My main guitar is an Edwards JP. I also have a Strat Ultra.

    I am really itching for a guitar fitted with a Fernandez Sustainer. I may pull the trigger on a Ravelle Elite, but I am also starting to get back into Van Halen and some other '80s rock that calls for a tremolo. I don't want a typical shredder axe (I hate thin necks and 24 frets), thus my conundrum

    Does this guitar exist? I will consider new or used, US or foreign build, and my price range is somewhat flexible
    • Bridge humbucker (either H-H or H-S-S configuration)
    • Sustainer or Sustainiac equipped (preferably factory installed rather than retrofitted)
    • Tremolo suitable for '80s soloing that offers good tuning stability but is easier to set up and maintain than a Floyd Rose (been there, done that)
    • Chunky neck that is more Les Paul than Strat or shred
    • 22 frets
    • Great tone & playability
    Thanks in advance,

    Sean

    The closest I come up with off the top of my head is the Jackson PC-1 "Phil Collen" model. But it has 24 frets and I'm not 100% sure how thick the neck is... I don't think it's super thin, though?

    Nuno Bettencourt Washburn?
    Zion set to your specs?
    PRS Custom 22 with your neck preference?
    Just pop in the sustainer.

    I second the PC-1...it has a much more full neck than your typical "shredder" guitar
