I'm having a similiar dilemma...
A Les Paul shaped guitar by Greg Bennett/Epiphone or the Yamaha Pacifica? Budget is up to 25k, this is my first guitar, and my rest of the stuff is a Digitech RP300A and a Marshall MG10CD.
I play classical and old rock, with the occaisional metal (main purpose of this guitar is for my neo-classical project). I require good clean tones and warm, thick, no-noise distortion.
Which one would be better?
Edit - Can I get a locking Floyd Rose fitted on a non-locking tremolo setup from a shop? Would it be possible on the aforementioned guitars?
