@jocelyn: Yea I like the S series too. Its in the final contestants. But their trouble is, that they dont give heavy tones for power chords and stuff. Light mahogany bodies. But i can use a LP for that, so no matter. As for the bolt-on necks, they dont have that much sustain as a set-in or thru body neck. I've seen a Taylor put me down there. Now in shred, we dont need that much of a sustain, but in rock stuff, we will be needing it. Thanks for the help so far dude! Rock on.
