    suggest not to go for the low-end ibanezs...and for 10-12k, you wouldnt get a decent washburn...kramers are that leaves you samick and pacifica and the squiers....

    i've heard a lot for the pacifica, good guitars....squiers tend to be weak pupd..although you can get a squier california fat strat for 8.8k at

    the washburn x10 is around 10k, you might wanna check that out...there's another brand aria that you might like to try...i recently bought an aria xl dlx and i'm more than happy with it..

    the squier fat strat is a pretty decent axe.H-S-S config....i'd suggest if you are going for the kramers, go for the ones with quad rails and dual rails pup config...and that might get a bit on the higher side....but i havent got much idea on th focus though.....there's the kramer striker for about 17.5 k which felt good to me

    the striker is a veyr good guitar. the focus is ok but it has 21 frets, a handicap.

    dude, how much did you get the XLDLX for? I am getting one for 12K and the XL-STD for 9K. I found the XL-STD to be quite good (SSH pups, unlike the HSH in the DLX). What stuff do you play with it?
