Either a Suhr Pete Thorn Signature or a Fender Ron Thorn masterbuilt Strat.
I have a semi-obscure collection as it is so maybe something a bit more traditional? I don't have a humbucker LP or SG nor a holllowbody. A hollow body with hum buckers or P90s would go down a treat I like a lot of the Epiphone ones so
Air guitar. I can have as many as I want!
Collings I35 with Throbaks if I can sell 3 guitars
New Charvel DK22 if I can afford one.
I think this whole thing is going to mean it's going to be many, many years until I can actually grab something.
The AUD has been absolutely smashed (down to as low as $0.55USD and it's up to $0.60USD today), so what was already expensive for me, has now gotten even worse.
The USD never seems to be impacted by much, which is good for you guys, but bad for the rest of us.
I'm thinking about ordering this Silverburst Stratocaster from the Fender Mod Shop once I get my corona cash from the government. I also want to make sure I'm around to play it.
Any suggestions for pickups? I saw a video comparing pickups, but they all pretty much sound the same to me, but I'm leaning towards the Fat 50s.
I scored myself a 2007 PRS McCarty 10 top just as this whole Covid19 scenario was starting to affect the UK.
There is a chance I will upgrade my amp when things settle down, I have a deal pending where I had a buyer for my acoustic gear (holding for him till he is paid next week) but, the way things are it may take longer.
No rush. Plenty of time to make up my mind.
That's easy: if the current Fender American Professional or Deluxe line had an option for "vintage hot" pickups instead of the V-mod/Noiseless, I'd already own one. Or if the current American Performer had the pro's trem/tailpiece. Or if some silly person bought a Vintera modified 6 months ago, regrets it now, and wants to let me have it for less than 60% of the original purchase price.
Regarding pickups and trems: I actually really like the V-Mods in Strats/Teles, and the noiseless ones don't sound bad, but I'm not gonna buy a brand new guitar and immediately swap in new pickups. I also don't hear much of a difference between the different types of trems; it's 95% an aesthetic preference.
Just wait a few more weeks. I have a feeling stocks will be much cheaper.
The time to buy stocks is quickly coming upon us, buy low which is now, and sell high later
I want to see if I can talk the Gibson CS into making me an R6 with a baked maple board, Carmelita carve and a figured emerald green top with natural back.
Sterling by Music Man LK100. Just gotta sell my PRS SE Custom 24 Floyd, first...
One of these!
HS Floydrose with rails pickup.
I got lucky I bought a MIM 60s laquer jazzmaster that already had the bridge and the trem system switched out to mastery a very reasonable $750 off Craig's list in 2016
Like this one:
This series was pretty short-lived and had the AVRI-65 pickups in it. I wouldn't have wanted to buy the guitar brand new and make these mods.
I know it doesn't exactly meet your criteria but just thought I would share my experience that that if you search hard enough for long enough you'll eventually find a good deal on what you want. If you're wanting the Vintera, I would set up searches on craigslist and reverb and wait till you find one at the price you are willing to pay. Just a little encouragement for you to be patient. I'm sure you know this.
My jazzmaster has been my co-number one since I got it. It's so loud acoustically it's ridiculous.
What's in your collection?
