As the title indicates, I'd like to know what's your preferred shred guitar (model or specs) and why. For me, at the moment I'm playing with a Strandberg Boden Prog 7. On the plus side, I love the Fishman Fluence pick-ups and the ergonomics of the body, specially when playing in a sitting position with the guitar resting on my left knee. I also like the Endureneck; I can play for a longer time than on a traditional neck (e.g. an Ibanez Wizard neck). That being said, on the negative side, the scale length, fanned frets and neck thickness are not ideal for shredding IMHO. For tapping arpeggios, I'd prefer standard frets (i.e. not fanned). Moreover, in order to be able to do wider strecthes, I'd prefer a thinner neck with 25.5 scale length. I'm starting this thread out of curiosity and also because I'm considering buying a new guitar for the reasons mentioned above.
