I’ve been thinking of another electric guitar and am amazed at the choices.  I have a great Strat now but it would be fun to explore other styles.  Seems like most folks play a Strat or LP or something based on those designs.  But I’m seeing cool guitars by Charvel (I’ve never had a Floyd), Jackson, Ernie Ball, EVH, etc etc.   What are some of your road-less-traveled electrics?

No pics handy, but I recently got a Fender Duo-Sonic.  Amazing what a short-scale (24") electric can do.

I have a MusicMan/Ernie Ball EVH/Axis - it's an absolutely incredible guitar to play. I got one of the first and I've had it for over 25 years.  On its strengths, it stands up well to my other electrics. I've played the current Ernie Ball Axis guitars too. They're great.

Nope - but what an interesting instrument!

I prefer it in these colours.  If I wanted a guitar in this vein, I'd want a Floyd Rose like the Axis.

But wow - that was fun learning about this one.

Ernie Ball Music Man Armada!

Odd man out, I don't like the mismatched appearance of the Musicman. I think it's kinda ugly.   whistling

I like the more traditional look of some of these.

which one?
 the gretchcaster? or the Godin Montreal Supreme?
 the Godin cutaway style 335 is a real gem-as I installed ML gen 3's in it.

the other one-the F hole tele style guitar takes some time getting used to the control figuration...but sounds great and is a lot of fun!

A few more "out of the norm" suggestions.   Carvin makes very nice electrics.  They offer many styles and a huge selection of woods and finishes.  Many years ago I ordered a lefty all walnut neck-through tele-style.   It was beautiful and had a super fast neck.   Locking tuners, nice inlays...  you can build what you want.     Also Schecter makes some very fine electric guitars.   the fact that Joe Walsh has used both of these in the past tells you they are quality instruments.   And the solid body Gretsch, even though it may look like a Les Paul style, is really quite a different animal.    i have no experience with Reverend guitars but I hear they are very nice too.

If you can find a USA Hamer - they are beautiful guitars. I got this new in the early 90s.  





They turn up once in a while, and usually, they are a steal for what they are.
