Hello John,

I've been playing for about 30 years now and still shreading and rocking!

I have 26 guitars in my collection.

My preferences:
- Les Paul due to the general feel of the neck, but mostly the tone of the humbuckings.
- Answer #2 definately humbuckings. I have tried and tried to like single coil pickups, but never can get my sound. The amp (and minor effect pedals) of course has a lot to do with it. I usually use Marshall (I own 6!).
- However, pickups also effect everything, so make sure you use sate of the are Seymour Duncan or Dimarzo pickups. I tend to not go for the real hot rodded models. I suggest a PAF copy (SH-1) from Seymour Duncan has a great sound, great sustain and good crunch if desired.
- Tail pieces become a problem because I highly recomend Floyd Rose locking systems. However you need to really do dammage to a guitar to install one. I put one on a 1968 Les Paul Gold Top because my friedn Neil Schon from Jorney did it. I could have killed him and I regret doing it, except stays in tune perfect. I have Locking systems on most of my strat style guitars.
- Love rosewood fret board the best. Like Ebony the least. I have a fond spot in my heart for lacqured maple. This comes from my love of Yngwie Malmsteen (baddest man on the planet) He uses a scalloped neck that I love so much. A secret is that I will soon scallop a Les Paul neck. Will be the first one I have ever seen!.

I almost bought his Fender Signature model, cream colour and lacqured maple neck, but I was afraid that it would stay in tune because I go to the bar sometimes often as he does. Well I saw him live here in HK and he can afford to have it go out of tune because he switches guitars about 15 times during the set. I heard he has seven guitars on the road and a roadie is backstage doing nothing but tuning. I can't understand why he doesn't go to a Floyd Rose system.
- Tuners: go Govers or Schalers(sp). Any stock Gibson or Fender tuner is shit. Even the new Fender locking tuners are a disappointment.
- Brand: Only one - Gibson. But shop for value, straight neck, etc.

Anyway, have fun.
