Since I'm a Metallica freak. I'm going to have to pick two. James' EET FUK and Kirk's Mummy. Either one and I'd die a happy man.

right now my dream guitar is this one: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ibanez-PM12 ... 1150622.gc

But I'll probably end up trading in my P90 Epi Les Paul for this one:

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ibanez-Artc ... 1150599.gc

I tried out the last one. Feels really nice in the hands. I've also got a Super 58 PAF that will go in the neck that I paid $30 for. It had been ordered by someone who never picked it up. Unforturnately it the Super 58 is gold, but who cares?

:D I actually searched for this thread after I made this discovery!!

Ibanez has released my dreamguitar!
http://www.musicpower.com/mmGUITARTRADE ... 0QSP-f.jpg

It's the Ibanez S5470Q, with quilted maple top and a gorgious colour! :D
That's such an awesome guitar to play, same neck as my SV5470F, but with the ZR2 trem, which is just the ultimate!!
Maybe I'd change the neck pickup to a True Duo Blast like the SV for some more versatility.. but that's it. :D

I've just noticed, on the last page I mentioned the SV .. I've got it now :D
Awesome guitar .. already lusting for the next .. it never ends :oops: :roll:
In terms of tones it's perfect .. but I'm missing the floyd. ;)

I don't think one guitar would cover everything for me, but my perfect metal axe would be a Firebird all-mahogany neck-thru w/ string-thru tail, ebony board, full-size HBs, Jackson-style neck profile and 12/16" CR fretboard w/ SS jumbo frets....

I had a PRS Custom 24, didn't like the trem, sold it when I got married with children.
I had the natural quilt Jackson PC-1, loved it, sold it when I got married with children.
I had the Ibanez Prestige RG1570 flame top with scalloped frets, sold it when I got married with children.

I WISH I had gotten one of these KE-1 Marty Friedman models, it has the fastest neck mof any neck thru guitar i ever played. Kahler, single pickup, really nice.


I'd also like one of these 27 fret babies

Well, I pieced together one of my "dream guitars." This is my Warmoth "Star" guitar.


Neck: Maple/Maple, 22 frets, "Wizard" profile, bolt-on construction, abalone inlays, my signature on the headstock :D

Body: Alder, "contoured" heel

Pickups: DiMarzio Super Distortion Bridge Pickup, DiMarzio D-Activator Nec Pickup

Hardware: Schaller-Floyd floating tremolo, Gotoh tuners, Fender Volume/Tone/Pickup Switch/Pots/Jack, Tremol-No

My other "dream guitars" are a Jackson Warrior with a "Speed Neck," reverse headstock, and a Green-Yellow burst or a Jackson Star with the same. Both would be neck-through designs. :twisted:

Man that Jackson KE1 in Trans Black is damn nice.

In truth while I wouldn't change my dream guitar (been a dream of mine since I was 12), I don't think I would ever be a 1 guitar kind of guy (assuming no financial hard times).

But a collection would be:
Jackson: modified "Concorde", KV Pro (own already), Soloist
Charvel: Star, SoCal
Gibson: Gold Top LP (with P90s)
Fender: Iron Maiden MIJ Strat
Non-MTS stuff for sale.

Good deals with: warlock, sickpunk, marinebassplayer, Rising Farce, durchgedreht, mattfig, & others.
