Maybe a flying V would be better though. A Jackson Randy Rhoads RR5 might be in budget.
Yes i keep looking at the vipers. I got an epiphone prophecy sg that i love in the meantime. Great access, great sound. The neck dive though.....
No neck dive on mine! I got it used and the strap button was already moved from the back of the top cutaway to the actual edge of said cutaway. My Agile Valkyrie (Viper copy essentially) on the other hand has it's strap button located on the body right under the neck and that fucker dives like it's got scuba gear on.
It's got a floyd, but there's the rg550xh that they made a couple years ago:
Otherwise, the Sterling (Music Man budget brand) Jp60 is probably worth a look.
I did see that one yes. That lower horn though, it looks so fragile lol
It's narrow but it's still 1.5 inches of hardwood. Probably strong enough to take moderate abuse at least.
Not THAT cheap though
You may be able to find a used Jackson soloist for under a grand and their neck through body construction leaves very little to get in your way.
Their imported Pro series soloist is also worth checking out, and is under $1,000 new.
I think theres one on reverb now for $599. The other thing is it looks so crammed together where the end of the fretboard runs into the pickups then BAM, your already at the bridge. Not much hand room. It would definitly take some getting used to.
I mean I wouldn't buy one, but if you want upper frets it's a pretty good option
also remember that it might have a deeper horn, the back of the neck and the neck joint it would still be at the same place than a normal RG, so its not really that comfortable at all.
IMO get yourself a whamy pedal and use it for that one high up arpegio that you need to do, and then go and buy the guitar you really want
There's three on Reverb:
They're a touch over $1k, but they do have hardshell cases and I've had good success with haggling on Reverb.
Those all sold in 2016?
Duh! I forgot searching Reverb from Google turns-up pretty much everything that's ever been for sale.
Haha... been there, excited, then pissed off when I realize my dream guitar has already been in someone else's hands for years lol.
If it's all about high pitched notes, why not go for the high A? Just use a slightly shorter scale guitar like 24", and add a high A.
Ooh I like that idea. Get a 25.5 scale 8 string with a low B and a high A.
It wasnt really about high pitched notes. Really just about the ease of access to the upper fret heel area, and most comfortable. Now im realizing my Agile septor 27" is more comfortable because my fingers arent so crammed up there as opposed to my epiphone prophecy sg that has a much shorter length and gives me little room.
Just because I love stating the obvious:
If having tiny frets crammed in bothers you, then you need to forget about the idea of getting a guitar with tiny frets crammed in.
The frets are not so crammed in with a little longer scale length
